There were quite a few highlights from last night’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, including SNL cast member Cecily Strong’s gold-standard set. The most significant one: We got to see a different side of President Obama, via his anger translator.
If you’re a fan of Comedy Central’s Key & Peele, you’re likely familiar with Luther (played by Keegan-Michael Key), Obama’s “anger translator,” who takes the president’s even-handed communiques and gives them a blood pressure-elevating reality check. For five glorious minutes, we got the full blast.
This morning, Key tweeted that this sketch was actually four years in the making, which makes it all the more amazing.
