U.S. President Barack Obama poked fun at himself and what he called a hard year but aimed his most caustic humor at Washington gridlock when political and media luminaries gathered at the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner.Obama said he had been feeling sorry for John Boehner, the Republican speaker of the House of Representatives. "These days, the House Republicans actually give John Boehner a harder time than they give me, which means orange really is the new black," he said, a reference to Boehner's seemingly perpetual tan.At the end of his speech, Obama turned the audience's attention to a video monitor, which failed to work. Obama also took a swipe at Republicans for blocking his bid to raise the minimum wage. Joel McHale, star of NBC comedy "Community," followed Obama with a well-received routine that had New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's weight as its largest target.
