"The Daily Show" correspondent Hasan Minhaj's roast of President Donald Trump Saturday at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner got some giggles and groans.

Among his jokes:

  • "Now that a professional wrestler is our president, anything is possible."
  • "Betsy DeVos couldn’t be here. She’s busy curating her collection of children’s tears."
  • "We’ve got to address the elephant that’s not in the room. The leader of our country is not here. And that’s because he lives in Moscow."
  • "Historically the president usually performs at the WHCD, but I think I speak for all of us when I say, he's done far too much bombing this month."
  • "Donald Trump doesn’t drink. He does not touch alcohol, which is oddly respectable. But think about that. That means every statement, every interview, every tweet – completely sober. How is that possible."
  • "Even if you guys groan, I've already hired Kellyanne Conway. She's going to go on TV Monday and tell everyone I killed (it)."

He also took on the media and a pollster:

  • "MSNBC's here tonight. That way if I'm bombing Brian Williams will describe it as stunning.""
  • "I had a lot more MSNBC jokes but I don't want to just ramble on, otherwise I might get a show on MSNBC."
  • "CNN is here. ... I'm not going to call you fake news but everything isn't breaking news. You can't go to defcon one because Sanjay Gupta found a new moisturizer."
  • "Nate Silver told me that joke would kill. He told me there was a 71.4% chance of that joke killing and I believed you, Nate.
