Democrat President Joe Biden got booed at the White House Correspondents Dinner last night when he mocked Tucker Carlson.
However, Biden then brought the house down with a joke about fired CNN anchor Don Lemon.
Biden said: “I believe in the First Amendment, and not just because my good friend Jimmy Madison wrote it.
“I get that age is a completely reasonable issue.
“It’s on everyone’s mind, by everyone I mean the New York Times.
“I like Rupert Murdoch,” Biden said.
“How can I dislike a guy who makes me look like Harry Styles?”
Biden then took a swipe at Tucker Carlson.
“The job isn’t finished, I mean it is finished for Tucker Carlson,” Biden said to boos and groans from the crowd.
Biden fired back, “What are you booing about, like you think that’s not reasonable? Give me a break.”

Biden continued but went after ex-CNN host Don Lemon.
“You say I’m over the hill,” Biden said.
“Don Lemon would say that’s a man in his prime.”
The crowd loved that one.

Roy Wood Jr was the night’s host.
Wood stars on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.”
“The untouchable Tucker Carlson is out of a job,” Wood said.
“Some people celebrate it but to Tucker’s staff, I want to know that I know what you’re feeling.
“I work at The Daily Show so I too have been blindsided by the sudden departure of the host of a fake news program.
“Tucker got caught up. Got caught up like that dude from Vanderpump Rules.
“I don’t know what Vanderpump Rules is about, I’ve watched it a couple of times.
“My friends told me it’s like BMF but for white people. Or is that Succession?
“No, Succession is Power for white people.
“No, Tucker Carlson is Power for white people.
“No, that’s white power — you know what, nevermind.
“We gotta get Tucker Carlson back on the air, mister president, because right now, there’s millions of Americans who don’t even know why they hate you.
“I think we should give credit where credit is due, Tucker Carlson is the first host to get fired by Fox News for something that’s only partially about how he treats women.
“That’s progress! He shattered the a** ceiling.
“Don Lemon released a statement saying he got fired from CNN, then CNN released a statement saying they offered Don a meeting.
“They had to part ways because Don Lemon can’t even accurately report a story about Don Lemon.
“I still think that Don deserved more, CNN. That ain’t how you fire someone.
“How funny is it that you work in the news, then watch on the news how you got fired form the news?
“Don Lemon is now the most obnoxious guy in the history of CNN, that’s not fair!
“Even Jeffrey Toobin looking at Don Lemon like, ‘Ooh he rubbed me the wrong way.’
“Letting Don go was the wrong move.
“You shouldn’t have let him go, not this soon.
“You don’t fire your host after the first couple of scandals.
“The scandals got to stack up. You gotta get the ratings.
“Yes, Don Lemon was a diva and he said a couple of women were raggedy in the face.
“But that’s a promotion at Fox News.”
