At the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner Saturday night, comedian Joel McHale had President Obama near tears with his jokes about the Vice President. Watch the clip.

"The Vice President isn't here tonight, not for security reasons. He just thought this event was being held at the Dulles Airport Applebee's," McHale said. "Yes, right now, Joe is elbow-deep in jalapeno poppers and talking to a construction cone he thinks is John Boehner."

"It's crazy to think that Joe Biden is only one heartbeat away from no one taking him seriously as President."

"Biden will likely be running for President in 2016, saying and I quote 'There's no obvious reason not to.'"

"He talks about his motivation for a Presidential run as if he's deciding to finish a meatball hoagie. 'Hey it's there isn't it? Look all I'm saying if the bread is toasty and the cheese is warm, I'm gonna finish that thing. Jill, bring me my hoagie bib. No, not that one - the fancy one.'"

McHale was the comedian headliner for the annual event, which marked the sixth time President Obama has addressed the journalists who cover the White House.
