Conan O'Brien starts his speech at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, energizing the crowd by hitting on all fronts.

O'Brien joked about CNN's John King's flubs, the excess of celebrities at the event including the cast of 'Duck Dynasty' and C-SPAN winning out the bid to broadcast the dinner over HGTV.

He referenced his last time hosting in 1995, saying that a lot has changed since he was last present, and that the only thing way he could have predicted President Hussein Obama's reelection is if he was running against only Mitt Romney.
