At the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, President Barack Obama poked some fun at himself, saying he borrowed an idea from Michelle and then showing a picture of himself with bangs.

“I understand second term, need a burst of new energy, try some new things, and my team and I were talking about it,” Obama said during his speech. “So we borrowed one of Michelle’s tricks.”

On the screen appeared a short slideshow of the president with bangs in different settings.

Media outlets from all over the county, as well as celebrity guests, including Kerry Washington and Tracy Morgan, attended the event Saturday night.
