WH Correspondents’ Dinner dubbed nerdprom, Palin not amused

President Obama, playing his customary role of celebrity-in-chief, had them in stitches at Saturday night’s White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner.

His frequent references to showbiz sure to please the star-studded audience that included the likes of Steven Spielberg, Harvey Weinstein, George Lucas, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Barbra Streisand.

But there was one individual with a little star power of her own who was not amused.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, using the social media platform Twitter, posted a very terse response at the events conclusion, calling participants “assclowns.”


She also posted a message to her 3.5 million fans on Facebook:

Yuk it up media and pols. While America is buried in taxes and a fight for our rights, the permanent political class in DC dresses up and has a prom to make fun of themselves. No need for that, we get the real joke.

Palin was a surprise guest at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, as noted by Business Insider.
