In retrospect comedian Larry Wilmore, the host of Comedy Central’s “The Nightly Show” was probably not the best choice for guest comedian at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

His racially-charged jokes fell flat with the crowd, including a jab he took at CNN’s Don Lemon that cause the anchor to give Wilmore some “love” right back.

But it was his closing, as he reflected on the legacy of the first black president, that raised the most eyebrows.

He spoke of being a kid and remembering when a black man wasn’t considered capable of being a football quarterback and now living in a time where “a black man can lead the entire free world.”

“Yo Barry, you did it my n***a,” he said to President Obama.

ABC News posted the video but then quickly deleted it and CBS News cut its video off right before that part.
