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.
