Obama's A Little Jealous Of John Boehner Because 'Orange Really Is The New Black'

President Barack Obama didn't hold back against House Republicans during Saturday's White House Correspondents' Dinner.

During his prepared speech, Obama recounted a "heartbreaking" letter he'd received from a Virginia man "who's been stuck in the same part-time job" and "gets no respect from his boss."

"I wish Eric Cantor would stop writing me," he joked.

The president also got in a jab at House Speaker John Boehner.

"These days, House Republicans give John Boehner a harder time than they give me," Obama said. "Which means orange really is the new black."
