Watch President Obama make fun of Fox News, the Koch brothers and John Boehner's love of bronzer at the White House Correspondents' Dinner (Credit: YouTube)

President Obama was slingin’ disses left and right at Saturday night’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

No one was safe from the president’s mega burns. Obama got digs in at the Koch brothers, John Boehner’s propensity for bronzer, Fox News and, of course, himself.

Some choice presidential slams:

“The Koch brothers bought a table here tonight, but as usual they used a shadowy right-wing organization as a front. Hello, Fox News.”

“Let’s face it, Fox, you’ll miss me when I’m gone. It’ll be harder to convince the American people that Hillary was born in Kenya.”

“If you want to get paid while not working you should have to run for Congress just like everyone else.”
