ALL COMEDY IS CONSERVATIVE:

In last laugh, Obama roasts presidential candidates (TIMES OF ISRAEL, May 1, 2016).

"If this material works well, I'm going to use it at Goldman Sachs next year," Obama said. "Earn me some serious Tubmans," he added, referring to plans to put abolitionist icon Harriet Tubman on the new $20 bill.

Obama took a few swipes at the presidential race, noting that "next year at this time someone else will be standing here in this very spot, and it's anyone's guess who she will be."

Calling presidential candidate Bernie Sanders the bright new face of the Democratic Party, Obama contrasted his slogan, "Feel the Bern," with one he said was that of rival Hillary Clinton: "Trudge Up the Hill."

But Republicans took the brunt of Obama's humorous broadsides. "Guests were asked to check whether they wanted steak or fish," he told the diners, "and instead a whole bunch of you wrote in 'Paul Ryan.'"

Of Republican front-runner Donald Trump, Obama said, "He has spent years meeting with leaders from around the world -- Miss Sweden, Miss Argentina, Miss Azerbaijan."

He added: "And there's one area where Donald's experience could be invaluable, and that's closing Guantanamo -- because Trump knows a thing or two about running waterfront properties into the ground."

He's finally ready to be president...
