Have you met Luther, President Obama's anger translator? #WHCD #KeyAndPeele
Posted by The White House on Saturday, April 25, 2015
True to tradition, the White House Correspondents' Dinner had plenty of comical moments. While President Barack Obama was politically correct at Saturday's event, he managed to draw big laughs with the help of Keegan-Michael Key. Channeling Key & Peele character Luther, the comedian took on the role of the president's anger translator. "I often joke about tensions between me and the press," President Obama said. "But honestly, what they say doesn't bother me. I'm a mellow sort of guy. And that's why I invited Luther, my anger translator, to join me here tonight." In the minutes that followed, the comedian delivered jokes about Hillary Clinton's presidential bid, Bradley Cooper, and so much more. Early Sunday, as their big moment went viral, Keegan-Michael tweeted about the performance, thanking his collaborator Jordan Peele.
