Michael Steele Responds To Obama Ribbing: 'Good Love Between Two Brothers' (VIDEO)

More coverage of the White House Correspondents Association dinner: watch complete speeches by President Obama and Wanda Sykes, and see a slideshow of celebs and politicos.

RNC chair Michael Steele responded to President Obama's ribbing of him at the White House Correspondents Dinner.

Asked by PoliticsDaily how he felt about Obama's jokes - "Michael Steele is in the house tonight -- or, as he would say, 'In the heezey,'" Steele laughed and said:

"It was good love between two brothers... I was surprised, but I appreciate the president giving me a shout out. I've given him a few over the years, so he just returned the favor."

He added that he was flattered by the attention from the president, tossing in a warning:

"It was nice to get the ribbing. Look, anytime you're called out by the President of the United States is pretty cool, right?" Steele said. "Look, this worm will turn. My time will come -- trust me."
