While keynote host – and Seattle-area native – Joel McHale made fun of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s girth, President Barack Obama poked fun at many of his own failings during a speech at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner.

Obama’s most memorable joke came when he said that his old slogan was “Yes we can,” and, after the debacle of the roll out of the Obamacare website, his new slogan is, “Ctrl, alt, delete” – a reference to the reboot key combination for personal computers.

Obama also found time to make fun of others. He joked that he was jet-lagged from a recent trip to Malaysia, insinuating that he only went there to draw the attention of CNN. He joked that the personnel at the Correspondents Dinner from MSNBC were “overwhelmed” because they never seen such a large audience.

“I think it’s interesting, there are a lot of Republicans who would like to do a ctrl, alt, delete on Obamacare,” KTTH host David Boze commented.
