SNL's Seth Meyers Takes on DC: The Complete Routine Plus the Funniest Clip


“If your hair gets any whiter, the Tea Party is going to endorse it.”


“SNL” head writer Seth Meyers spared no one in his star turn at the White House Correspondents Dinner, pivoting from jokes about the oddball crop of 2012 presidential contenders to members of Congress to President Barack Obama. He mocked the White House Correspondents Association itself, C-SPAN, the venue for the evening (the Washington Hilton) and the city of D.C.

Some of his best – and meanest – jokes:

“You know how you know I’m not in New York? In New York, no one is excited to go to a Bloomberg party. In New York, a Bloomberg party is five people standing outside of a bar complaining about Bloomberg.”

“Jon Hamm looks the way every Republican thinks he looks. Zach Galifianakis looks the way every Republican thinks every Democrat looks.”

“Donald Trump has said he’s running for president as a Republican — which is surprising because I thought he was running as a joke. “

“Donald Trump owns the Miss USA pageant, which is great for Republicans because it will streamline their search for a vice president.”

To President Obama: “I’ll tell you who could beat you: 2008 Barack Obama. You would have loved him.”

To President Obama: “If your hair gets any whiter, the tea party is going to endorse it.”

This may be the strongest 1:42 section of the routine:
