Last night at the White House corespondent’s dinner before an audience of politicians, celebrities and members of the media, President Obama and late night TV talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel took turns tag teaming each other. As they pulled no punches, taking jabs at the Secret Service for their recent sexual escapades involving Colombian hookers.
That was until a Secret Service agent approached the two.
Removing his dark sunglasses, the young agent politely asked for equal time to address the audience on behalf of his fellow Secret Service agents.
President Obama and Jimmy Kimmel just looked at each other, shrugged their shoulders and handed over the mic to the agent.
“This is last minute so,” said the nervous Secret Service agent as he reached into his breast coat pocket. The audience cowered and cringed under their tables, believing the agent was about to pull out his service weapon.
“What?” said the agent, realizing what the audience was reacting to. “Oh…This is nothing to worry about. It’s just my short list of jokes. See?”
The audience let out a sigh of relief and resumed their seats.
“I really don’t have that much marital on me,” continued the agent, waving the sheet of paper in the air.
“Yeah,” yelled out a drunken heckler in the audience. “I bet that’s what she said!”
The audience roared with laughter.
“You’re right,” calmly replied the agent, taking on the heckler. “We deserve that. After all who did we think we were sleeping round with prostitutes, elected officials?!”
President Obama laughed so hard he doubled over, slapping his knee, which earned him a scowl from the fist lady and fellow politicians.
“So we screwed a few Colombian whores,” continued the now confident Secret Service agent. “At least we don’t screw the American public.”
No body in the audience laughed, except for Jimmy Kimmel who slapped a now stiff-necked President Obama on the back.
“Why so serious commander in chief?” Jimmy Kimmel asked the president. “You know --”
“Yes, I know,” said the president, cutting off Kimmel before he could finish his sentence. “It’s funny because it’s true.”
The Secret Service agent then put back on his dark sunglasses and signed off.
“Secret Service is in the House,” said the agent. “The White House, that is.”
The Secret Service agent then dropped the mic to the floor with a thud, causing such a ringing feedback President Obama, Jimmy Kimmel and everybody in the audience had to cover their ears.
