Last night, journalists and celebrities mingled at the Washington Hilton here in D.C. for the annual "Nerd Prom," also known as the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

President Obama delivered a speech where he poked fun at himself, the media, the rocky rollout of Healthcare.gov, and even racist Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy.

Everyone's favorite joke, though, seems to be the one Obama made about the infighting in the Republican Party: "These days, House Republicans are actually giving John Boehner a harder time than they're giving me, which means orange really is the new black."

Watch President Obama's remarks at the dinner, after the jump.
