The annual White House Correspondent’s dinner this past Saturday night featured two Seattle luminaries. Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was in the crowd, and Joel McHale, of our long-dead TV show Almost Live, was the host. This was McHale’s first trip up to the podium and the reviews were mixed.
McHale tore apart the president for HealthCare.gov and the unclosing of Guantanamo. Chris Christie got it on two fronts: his weight and his bridge troubles.
But skip all that, seriously. For McHale’s big joke about Richard Sherman, Tim Tebow and Peyton Manning, go to the tape, at 17:50.
POTUS took to the stage, too, and what do we remember most? His big Richard Sherman joke! And, just like McHale, that fell a little flat, too. But at least he tried, Joel, at least he tried…
