Obama shocked the audience with jokes about Clinton, trump and throwing the microphone

President Barack Obama held a traditional reception for journalists at the White house. This event is always characterized by the fact that the first person speaks with a comic speech, which, however, always not without real implications. Last year, Obama helped the famous comedian Keegan-Michael Key, who compared the election campaigns of Hillary Clinton with the arrival of Khalis in Westeros, playing with series “Game of thrones”. This time Obama did it all by myself, leaving at the end of the speech on the floor microphone.

The most sharp jokes Barack Obama has dedicated the candidate in US presidents from Republican party, Donald Trump, as is clear from the published speech of the American leader in Washington Post.

Obama, for example, expressed surprise that trump didn’t come to this dinner, although there were a lot of reporters and celebrities. “This dinner is too cheap for trump?”, – asked Obama, hinting at a big state candidate. Following the current U.S. leader suggested that instead of dinner billionaire sitting at home, eating trump steaks and wrote on Twitter insults against Angela Merkel.

Beat Obama and the statements of the representatives of the Republican party that trump has no experience of international communication. Obama retorted and noticed that trump many years met with the leaders of the world – “Miss Sweden,” “Miss Argentina”, “Miss Azerbaijan”. Recall that trump previously owned the rights to the competitions “Miss universe”.

When talking about Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama uttered a phrase from which one can understand that he believes it is the winner of the upcoming presidential election. “Next year someone else will be in this place, all wondering who it will be,” said Obama. While Hillary Clinton is the only woman remaining in the race.

The last scene in Obama’s speech did shock the audience. He uttered two words “Obama takes his leave”, put two fingers of his right hand to his lips, and left hand with the microphone pointedly pried, so he fell to the floor.
