President Obama Jokes About Ted Cruz's Citizenship

President Obama's Final State Dinner Was Pretty Much a Comedy Show

At Thursday's state dinner honoring Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, President Barack Obama not only looked dapper, but he also had some serious zingers. When addressing the White House's Canadian visitors, Obama good-naturedly poked fun at the current set of US presidential hopefuls. His first target was Canadian-born GOP candidate Ted Cruz. After a touching introduction about how Canada and the United States allow citizens to work hard and achieve their dreams, he cheekily added: "Where else could a boy born in Calgary grow up to run for president of the United States?"

The president also included a sassy allusion to Donald Trump's campaign promises, and Trudeau was just as funny with his Justin Bieber quip. Give the video a watch and prepare to giggle!
