The press and Obama go to the prom!


It's the hardest ticket in town! Since 1920, members of the press and celebrities have been getting together to roast the president. It's supposed to be an evening to cut the tension between the president and the press corp covering one of the hardest jobs in the land, but it also illustrates the coziness, or lack thereof, between the press and our commander-in-chief.

Watch comedienne Wanda Skykes poke fun at President Obama's basketball game, his garrulous vice president, his predecessor, and all those bank bailouts.
