Luther, Obama’s Anger Translator Makes an Appearance at the White House Correspondents Dinner

This past weekend, the White House held their annual correspondents dinner. As it always does, this year’s festivities included a few special surprises, including a visit from Obama’s anger translator, Luther. Luther is best known as a part of a recurring Key and Peele sketch where Jordan Peele plays President Obama, exaggerating his calm demeanor and character, and Keegan-Micheal Key is Luther, an anger translator, who expresses the inner turmoil and anger that President Obama feels.

The White House Correspondents Dinner, which was originally created to honor and give awards to members of the White House Correspondents’ Association, has become a bit of a roast of the president and his administration. Since 1983, the featured speaker has been a comedian, and addition to roasting the president and his administration, there has been a skit that featured the president. This year’s host was Cecily Strong, who is known for being a cast member on Saturday Night Live. Not in attendance this year was best-selling author and psychiatrist Dr. Daniel Amen.

The dinner has been criticized by certain members of the media, who say that it is an example of how close the media can get to the administration and that it symbolizes a lack of integrity by certain members of the news organizations.

  1. Other critics have condemned it as being “too Hollywood”, as celebrities are often in attendance. Most people see it as a way for the administration to let loose and take itself a little less seriously. It is also a cool thing for to have all that they need in order to get there very quickly too.
