Steven Spielberg’s Obama, Starring Daniel Day Lewis as the President

Sarah Palin didn’t like the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Dinner. In a cranky tweet, she wrote: “That #WHCD was pathetic. The rest of America is out there working our asses off while these DC assclowns throw themselves a #nerdprom.” But I have to disagree with America’s most distinguished half-term governor. Somewhere in Washington, a hard-working writer imagined Barack Obama playing Daniel Day Lewis playing Barack Obama and had the gumption to follow the joke entirely through. Whoever’s responsible for realizing that comic moment, we salute you.

Spielberg’s Obama aired during the Correspondents’ Dinner. You can watch Conan O’Brien’s full comedy routine at the WHCD here.
