The Commander-in-Chief noted his waning popularity on multiple occasions, while also mocking CNN for its coverage of the lost Malaysian airplane and Fox News for its insistence that he’s really from Kenya.

Check out Obama’s best quotes, zingers and one-liners below:

We rolled out HealthCare.gov. That could’ve gone better. In 2008 my slogan was ‘Yes, We Can.’ In 2013, my slogan was ‘Control, Alt, Delete. I did notice the other day that Sasha needed a speaker at career day, and she invited Bill Clinton. How well does ObamaCare have to work before people don’t want to repeal it. What if everyone’s cholesterol drops to 120? What if your yearly check up came with tickets to a Clippers game? Not the old Don Sterling Clippers, the new Oprah Clippers! Would that be good enough? What if it gave Mitch McConnell a pulse? One thing we’ve been unable to agree on is unemployment insurance. Republicans refuse to extend it. I’m beginning to think they have a point. If you want to get paid while not working, you should have to run for Congress just like everybody else. I’m feeling sorry, believe it or not, for the speaker of the House, as well. These days the House Republicans give John Boehner a harder time than they do me. Which means orange really is the new black. Let’s face it, Fox. You’ll miss me when I’m gone. It’ll be harder to convince the American people that Hillary was born in Kenya. An American won the Boston Marathon for the first time in 40 years, which was inspiring and only fair since a Kenyan has been President for the past six. They’re a little over-whelmed. They’ve never seen an audience this big before. I’m a little jet-lagged from my trip to Malaysia. The lengths we have to go to for CNN coverage these days. I think they’re still searching for their table.Did you like President Obama: Best of White House Correspondents’ Dinner Quotes?

Pippa Middleton Accused of “False Bottom,” Butt Padding Inside Famous Royal Wedding Dress

Queen of the Booty. Lord of the Arsetocracy. Three years after the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William … we’re still talking about Pippa Middleton’s butt.

Just when you thought that subject was in the (cough) rear view mirror, here comes Stephane Bern, Knight of the Order of Grimaldo and an etiquette expert.

He alleged this week that Pippa wore padding in her dress:

“Of course she had a false bottom,” the 50-year-old said. “I repeat it: She had a false bottom. You take her away from that and she has normal buttocks.”

Bern’s belated public accusations didn’t stop there, either.

“It was an optical illusion; she knew there were a billion people watching,” he said, adding that Pippa Middleton knew “it was the moment to show it.”

Did she or didn’t she? Does it matter? Does anyone care?

The 30-year-old herself addressed the speculation (and all the attention) at the Women in Advertising and Communications dinner back in February.

“As I have found out, recognition has its upside, its downside and – you may say – its backside,” Kate Middleton’s younger sister told the 400 attendees.

Nicely played by an apparently self-aware Pippa there.

She added that she was glad the beautiful white dress fit at the time of the Royal Wedding, but quipped that “in retrospect, it [fit] a little too well.”

Regardless of what she was or wasn’t wearing underneath the Alexander McQueen creation, the situation can best be summed up as … damn, girl!
