Saturday was the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and like you’d expect, President Obama yucked it up at his and everyone else’s expense for a good 20 minutes.
Included among everyone else was Martin O’Malley, who the president teased for his lack of name recognition among voters.
“Hillary kicked things off by going completely unrecognized at a Chipotle,” Obama began. “Not to be outdone, Martin O’Malley kicked things off by going completely unrecognized at a Martin O’Malley campaign event.”
The joke drew laughter, which evolved quickly into an unidentifiable mix of noises — boos? groans? conversation? I can’t tell. It also made CNN’s list of “Obama’s top 10 jokes.”
Here’s Obama’s complete speech. The O’Malley joke begins at 13:30.
