Cecily Strong makes joke on RFRA at Correspondents’ Association Dinner

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Cecily Strong comedian on Saturday Night Live delivered a memorable evening of one-liners at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner on Saturday night.

Hundreds of politicians, journalists and entertainers were together for the so-called national “Nerd Prom”.

Strong even touched on the controversial religious freedom law.

“We tried to get Memories Pizza to cater this event but they heard a rumor Barney Frank was going to be here,” Strong said of the openly gay former congressman. “So thanks a lot, Barney. We could have had that world famous Indiana pizza,” Strong said.

One of the moments that the crowd enjoyed was when the president was talking about how he wanted to make the most of every moment he had left in his presidency.

“After the midterm election, my advisers asked me ‘Mr. President, do you have a bucket list?’ And I said ‘Well, I have something that rhymes with bucket list. Take executive action on immigration? Bucket. New climate regulations? Bucket. It’s the right thing to do,” Obama said.

Some of the other hot topics for jokes were President Obama’s gray hair, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden’s infamous massages and the Secret Service.
