Strong and Key both delivered hilarious performances over the weekend.

Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live star Cecily Strong hosted the annual White House Correspondents Dinner. In front of a crowd filled with members of the political media, politicians and plenty of celebrities, Strong got digs in at members of both sides of the political landscape. Here were a couple of one-liners that really stood out:

“Just because I’m a woman doesn’t mean I’m going to go easy on you people. I’m going to go easy on you people because my brain is smaller.”

“Tonight’s event is being broadcast on C-Span, so to some of tonight’s viewers watching alone on C-Span, hello. But to most of tonight’s viewers at home alone tonight, meow.”

“Fox News is all hot blonde ladies and old dudes. Every show looks like a party scene from Weekend at Bernie’s.”

“I don’t want to be too hard on those guys [the Secret Service], because they’re the only law enforcement agency in the country that will get in trouble if a black man gets shot.”

Before Strong, though, Barack Obama had some things he had to say to all the members of the media. To help him, he brought his anger translator Luther (Keegan-Michael Key reprising his Key & Peele character) who is able to say the things that Obama is really thinking. For instance, when Obama remarked that we count on the members of the media to shed light on the most important issues of the day, Luther said, "And we can count on Fox News to terrify old white people with some nonsense. Sharia Law is comin' to Indiana!"
