President Barack Obama is Comedian-In-Chief.
During his hilarious annual White House Correspondents Dinner speech Saturday, the president poked
fun at lots of folks, especially those who doubt his faith as a Christian.
“Just this week, Michele Bachmann actually predicted that I would bring about the biblical end of days,”
said Obama, hardly able to contain his laughter.

“We need to realize how close this clock is getting to the midnight hour,” Bachmann said on "End Times"
with host Jan Markell.

negotiate with Iran, all while finding time to pray five times a day," he said.
Results from a University of a 2014 California poll revealed as recently as February showed that 54
percent of Republicans answered "Muslim" when asked what Obama believes “deep down”; only nine
percent said "Christian.”
