The skit revolved around Biden and Dreyfus, or Meyer, indulging in various hijinks around Washington. At one point, the duo were discovered eating ice cream in the White House kitchens by a disapproving Mrs. Obama. At another, they chanced upon Pelosi getting a tattoo, and cracking a joke at the expense of conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch.

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."
