Washington CNN —  

President Barack Obama appeared at his final White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday night, taking aim at everything from the media to the Republican Party to Donald Trump. Not even the Democrats vying to succeed him, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, were spared.

Here’s a look at his most memorable lines:

On life after the White House

“If this material works well, I’m gonna use it at Goldman Sachs next year. Earn me some serious Tubmans.”

On being late

“I do apologize, I know I was a little late tonight. I was running on CPT – which stands for jokes that white people should not make.”

On who will be the next president

“Next year at this time, someone else will be standing here in this very spot. And it’s anyone’s guess who she will be.”

On Bernie Sanders

“We’ve got the bright new face of the Democratic Party here tonight, Mr. Bernie Sanders! Bernie, you look like a million bucks. Or to put it in terms you’ll understand, you look like 37,000 donations of $27 each.”

On Sanders distancing himself from Obama

“I am a little hurt that you’re distancing yourself from me, Bernie. That’s not something you do to your comrade.”

On his approval ratings

“In my final year, my approval ratings keep going up. The last time I was this high, I was trying to decide on my major.”
