Iranian President to be Roasted at White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Iranian leader, Hassan Rouhani, has accepted an invitation to be the guest of honor at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

His spokesmen commented, “The President was deeply honored by the invitation and is already hard at work on his speech, which I can assure you is going to be full of ‘zingers’. He recognizes the religious leanings of his audience so he’ll be limiting the Zionist jibes and will only be telling one holocaust joke. But that will be the one about his father falling out of the watchtower, which everyone agrees is hilarious.”

He continued, “President Rouhani fully appreciated the medium of the ‘roast’. It’s a little remarked fact that after imprisonment without trial and public executions, it’s his third most popular form of dealing with human rights protesters. So, he knows what he’s getting himself into.”

“He’s certainly going to make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity knowing that the last US president to not attend was Ronald Reagan. And his only excuse was he was recovering from being shot. What a ‘snowflake’, as I believe Tomi Lahren would say.”
