Barack Obama and wife Michelle opened the White House doors for the annual Correspondents' Association dinner on Saturday night, welcoming guests including supermodels Naomi Campbell and Karlie Kloss, the Trumps, actresses Sophia Bush and Lucy Lui and many more.

After appearing on Jimmy Kimmel's regular slot reading mean tweets about himself, the President took another opportunity to showcase his funny side, amusing the VIP crowd at a special event with a series of jokes during his speech. 

"People say I'm arrogant and aloof," the president said. "Some people are so dumb," he joked. On new rival Hillary Clinton, Obama said: the economy has gotten so bad for some people "I had a friend, just a few weeks ago, she was making millions of dollars a year, and now she's living out of a van in Iowa." Take a look inside the prestigious event in the gallery below.
