Obama gives as good as he gets at ‘Nerd Prom’
CNN: Few were spared from President Barack Obama’s zingers at Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Obama joked about his appearance after so many years in office — “These days I look in the mirror and I gotta admit: I’m not the strapping young Muslim socialist that I used to be,” he said.
He also addressed the recent tragedies in Boston and West, Texas, as well as the flooding that’s afflicted some in the Midwest.
The event sees Washington’s newsmakers stroll a red carpet that’s also filled with press and stars from across entertainment.
The dinner was established in 1920 and raises money for journalism scholarships. It was a men-only event until 1962, when President John F. Kennedy said he wouldn’t attend unless women were also invited.

I can’t be the only one suspicious of JFK’s motives with that though, I mean…. :/

Most beautiful status I’ve ever seen to be honest
