VIDEO: Obama Razzes Himself, Rubio at White House Correspondents' Dinner

White House Correspondents' Association

After a few weeks of heavy news, President Barack Obama and the reporters who cover him enjoyed a light-hearted evening over the weekend. Saturday was the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner at the Washington Hilton Hotel.

Before headliner Conan O'Brien took to the stage, Obama dished out some zingers at the expense of the press, Republicans and even himself.

"One Senator who has reached across the aisle recently is Marco Rubio," Obama said. "But I don't know about 2016. I mean, the guy has not even finished a single term in the Senate, and he thinks he's ready to be president. Kids these days."

Of course, it takes one to know one. In 2007, Obama announced his candidacy for president while still in his first term as a U.S. Senator.

Below you can watch Obama's complete remarks, courtesy of C-SPAN. The jab at Rubio -- and himself -- comes at the 14:02 mark.
