Obama and His Anger Translator Get Candid at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner saw Cecily Strong and President Obama crack some very funny jokes, but the latter had a little help: At the end of his set, the president was joined at the podium by his outspoken anger translator, Luther, played by Key & Peele’s Keegan-Michael Key.

The result was predictably hilarious, with Obama deploying an admirable deadpan as Key’s hysterics occur beside him. The segment’s high point? Luther’s exclamation that “Khaleesi is coming to Westeros!” when Obama mentions Hillary Clinton.
