The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is always a long-awaited event in April. It’s a time where celebrities without any real necessity to politics (yeah, you Kardashian Klan) attend a fancy dinner and hobnob with the President and journalists. The WHCD has been put on by the White House Correspondents’ Association since 1920, but in the past few years, it’s become a Presidential roast. The dinner also has an eerie tendency to happen after disastrous events. Last year’s dinner came right on the heels of the deadly tornado outbreak and a day before Osama bin Laden was killed. Nonetheless, the show went on and Seth Meyers even joked about where Osama was hiding. This year’s dinner was hosted by ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel, and his speech has me thinking that he should be president.
Jimmy went all in. He made fun of everyone from the President to Lindsay Lohan. Woah, I never thought I’d put those two together in the same sentence. He tackled subjects like healthcare, legalizing marijuana, and the decline of Fox News. He even expressed that our nation is in serious trouble since the Kardashians now have four reality shows. Jimmy Kimmel knows what’s up, and he could be just the person to fix it. He’s the kind of person that would win Wilmer Valderrama’s Yo Momma without even trying. Maybe we need someone like that in office who can just beat down enemies with jokes. You can’t come back from what he says.
It’s too late for Kimmel to run this year, but this gives us plenty of time to start campaigning for Kimmel 2016! Check out his speech below:
What did you think of his speech? Would you vote for Jimmy Kimmel?
