Did you hear the one about the Muslim, socialist, Kenyan president? The joke Obama can’t stop telling.
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."
"My name is Barack Obama. My mother was born in Kansas. My father was born in Kenya. And I was born, of course, in Hawaii."
"As some of you heard, the state of Hawaii released my official long-form birth certificate. Hopefully this puts all doubts to rest. But just in case there are any lingering questions, tonight I'm prepared to go a step further. Tonight, for the first time, I am releasing my official birth video. Now, I warn you, no one has seen this footage in 50 years, not even me. But let's take a look." (Plays footage from "The Lion King.")
"It's been quite a year since I've spoken here last. Lots of ups, lots of downs, except for my approval ratings, which have just gone down. But that's politics. It doesn't bother me. Besides, I happen to know that my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth."
