President Obama Mocks Kendall Jenner At The White House Correspondents' Dinner

President Barack Obama has become one of the most-loved political figures across the globe due to his great sense of humour and quick remarks, which he perfectly demonstrated at last night’s annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

And it was poor Kendall Jenner who was in the firing line this time around.

Whilst giving his speech, the actual president of the United States decided to roast the twenty-year-old supermodel, telling the crowd: “Kendall Jenner is also here and we had a chance to meet backstage.

"She seems like a very nice young woman… I’m not exactly sure what she does. But I am told that my Twitter mentions are about to go through the roof.”

Hey, we all know that Internet points are all that matter, right Obama?

Kendall took the quip in good grace as she laughed along with the rest of the crowd, later admitting that Obama was the only person who has ever left her starstruck.

When asked if she gets starstruck often Kendall told People magazine: “Never. That was my first time ever.

"He was like, ‘Say hi to Kim and Kanye’, I was like 'Okay!’”

Kendall also revealed that her momager Kris Jenner was over-the-moon about her daughter being invited to the prestigious event, adding: “She’s already Instagrammed it, I know she’s proud.

"She’s all over it.”

Kendall wasn’t the only star to get a shoutout during Obama’s speech as the politician mocked the fact that it is his final year in office and joked about his meeting with Prince William and Kate Middleton last week.

In case you somehow managed to miss it, two-year-old Prince George was allowed to stay up late to meet the American leader and his wife Michelle and was dressed in his pyjamas and dressing gown when the big moment came.

Obama told the crowd: “In just six short months I will be officially a lame duck, which means Congress now will flat out reject my rhetoric and republican leaders won’t take my phone calls.

"But it’s not just Congress, even some foreign leaders, they’ve been looking ahead to the next leader. Last week, Prince George showed up to our meeting in his bathrobe.

"That was a slap in the face - a clear breach of protocol.”

Emma Watson, Will Smith and Michelle Dockery were also guests at the prestigious event.
