If there’s one thing we can count on from President Obama at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner every year, it’s him making jokes about being Muslim, foreign-born and socialist.
On Saturday, he joked about how busy he is, dealing with immigration, vetoes and Iran — all while finding time to pray five times a day. And then there was the one about how if Bernie Sanders became president, we’d have a “third Obama term after all” (“Apparently, some folks really want to see a pot-smoking socialist in the White House,” he said).
He got lots of laughs, but if you look back at all of his other routines, you’ll notice he has made similar jokes before. Not just once. Not just twice. Every. Single. Year. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it, right? Here’s a look back at Obama joking about being a socialist Muslim born in Kenya:
“An American won the Boston Marathon for the first time in 30 years, which was inspiring and only fair, since a Kenyan has been president for the last six.”
“Let’s face it, Fox, you’ll miss me when I’m gone. It will be harder to convince the American people that Hillary was born in Kenya.”
“These days, I look in the mirror and I have to admit, I’m not the strapping young Muslim socialist that I used to be.”
