Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was among the attendees at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner over the weekend.

The annual event features members of the Washington press corps, Hollywood celebrities and President Barack Obama, who delivers a roast.
Obama said Sherman gave him some advice on dealing with White House reporters.


During his speech, Obama poked fun at members of Congress, cable news and the flawed roll-out of Healthcare dot gov. He said in 2008, his motto was “Yes We Can,” but in 2013 his slogan was “Control, Alt, Delete.” You can view the entire event here.
