President Barack Obama gained some serious points when he brought Key & Peele’s Luther to this year’s White House Correspondent’s Dinner. As usual, Luther (played by Keegan-Michael Key) hilariously personified the role of Obama’s “anger translator.”
Luther’s high-energy antics were used to drive the nail home in topics ranging from Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid to Fox News terrifying “old white people” to the growing concern with climate change.
He also shared many of our sentiments when he spoke about the media’s heavy coverage of Ebola.
“For two weeks, I thought we were a week away from The Walking Dead!”
For most of the five-minute speech with his anger translator in tow, Obama remained calm as he allowed Luther to express his feelings through him. But when it came to the issue of climate change, the president just couldn’t hold it together – and it was the Key and Peele character who had to calm him down.
“With all respect, sir, you don’t need an anger translator, you need counseling.”
Luther then ended his brief appearance at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner by informing the first lady that her husband is, in fact, “crazy.”
