President Barack Obama's gave his final White House Correspondents' Dinner remarks on Saturday and in the tradition of the event, POTUS got a chance to roast the media and his Republican rivals in a comical monologue. While the president's routine drew a lot of laughs it was Larry Wilmore, the Comedy Central TV host, who may be responsible for the night's most controversial moment.

Wilmore, who followed the president in the program, was hired to provide the professional comedy of the evening. He used his routine to tie Ted Cruz to the Zodiac Killer, blast Donald Trump, and skewer MSNBC for offing their black correspondents.

However at the end of his monologue the 'Nightly Host' had some words for the President that will have the media and social media talking for days.

"But behind that joke is the humble appreciation for the historical implications for what your presidency means," Wilmore said winding down his time at the podium. "When I was a kid, I lived in a country where people couldn't accept a black quarterback. Now think about that. A black man was thought by his mere color not good enough to lead a football team. And now to live in your time, Mr. President, when a black man can lead the entire free world."

"Words alone do me no justice," he added. "So, Mr. President, if I'm going to keep it 100," Wilmore said, before pounding his chest. "Yo, Barry, you did it, my nigga!" President Obama responded with a chest pound before dapping up Wilmore.

The moment seemed to catch many off guard and including the cable news host covering the event live.
