George W. Bush acknowledges family name will hurt Jeb’s 2016 campaign – The Week Magazine
Constrained by decorum, President Obama at times appears unable to express the full heft of his emotions when dealing with difficult situations. Enter Keegan-Michael Key who, when playing Obama’s fictional “anger translator,” Luther, on the comedy Key & Peele, serves as the mouthpiece to the president’s true thoughts and emotions.
At the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday, Obama brought Key out to play that very role. Yet as Obama turned to obstreperous climate change deniers, he soon overtook Key as the voice of rage, prompting the comedian to leap in and save Obama from going too far.

“What about our kids? What kind of stupid, shortsighted, irresponsible bull—” he continued before Key cut him off. —Jon Terbush
