Joel McHale appeared on Howard Stern’s radio show earlier this week and revealed two jokes he cut from his White House Correspondents’ Dinner routine for being too offensive.
McHale, who is set to perform for the president and the Washington press corps Saturday night, was joined on Stern’s set by two of the writers helping craft his comedy set, Brad Stevens and Boyd Vico. (READ: Joel McHale ready to ‘bash everyone’ at White House Correspondents’ Dinner)
“Someone told a joke where we said, ‘It’s great that we have our first black president’ and other people were like ‘he’s half white everybody.’ And I was going to go, ‘Look, the only person who can tell you if the president is black is Michelle Obama,’” McHale told Stern when the radio host asked to list some jokes he cut from his set for being too risqué.
Stevens revealed another joke that had been cut for being too offensive: “Ronan Farrow got this big new show on MSNBC. I wonder who his father-in-law had to molest to get that gig.”
It strikes The Daily Caller as conceivable that these jokes were also cut for being terribly unfunny.
