Those who weren’t tuned into the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday night missed the best laugh (and shadiest moment) of this generation.

To assist the president with the joke-telling and roasting, comedian and The Nightly Show host, Larry Wilmore, took stage to make sure people in the audience felt at least a little bit uncomfortable.

Between the two, here are 10 mic drop-worthy quotes from Barack Obama‘s final White House Correspondents Dinner:

1. “Sorry I’m late, I was running on CPT, which stands for jokes white people shouldn’t make.” -Barack Obama

2. “You look terrible, Mr. President. No, you do, man. Look at you. Your hair is so white it tried to punch me at a Trump rally.” – Larry Wilmore

3. “There are so many rich, powerful people in this room. It’s so nice to finally match the names to the faces of the people in the Panama Papers.” -Larry Wilmore



6. “Kendall Jenner is also here and we had a chance to meet backstage. She seems like a very nice young woman… I’m not exactly sure what she does. But I am told that my Twitter mentions are about to go through the roof.” -Barack Obama


8. “All I’m saying is that in less than eight years, Mr. President, you have busted two time-honored stereotypes: black does crack, and apparently once you go black it looks like we are going back. Thanks, Ben Carson.” -Larry Wilmore
