Watch now: Barack Obama uses 'anger translator' at White House dinner

Don't get him started on climate change...


Watch President Obama make a humorous address at the annual White House Correspondence Dinner, with the help of his very own 'anger translator.' The president reveals his true feelings behind his politically correct phrasing. Until he gets started on the environment...

The annual White House Correspondence dinner took place in Washington D.C at the weekend, with President Barack Obama enjoying an evening of comedy, politics and a huge celebrity and press audience. Previous years have seen comic stars such as Jimmy Kimmel and Joel McHale take to the podium to poke friendly fun at the year in politics, this year saw the president himself getting the most laughs. 

Inspired by a sketch on Comedy Central's Key & Peele show, Obama delivered a speech in his usual presidential way, whilst comedian Keegan Michael Key flanked him and acted as his 'anger translator', unveiling the political politeness to reveal the true meaning behind the president's comments. But once Obama hit the topic of climate change, he out-angered his anger translator. If you missed it, take a look at the brilliantly funny video above.
