Speaker Boehner, for his part, was seen saying that he would not attend the dinner because there were "important things going on here in the Capitol" – and then turning to watch a panda video.
The video immediately preceded President Obama's speech, which he opened with a self-deprecating and sarcastic remark about his "stellar" 2013.
But he soon turned toward somewhat more edgy material with a joke at the expense of rancher Cliven Bundy. Referencing Bundy's remark that, "I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro," Obama said he had a "tip" that if you start sentences that way, people "don't really need to hear the rest."
