President Obama knows how to surround himself with people who can get the job done.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Comedy Central confirmed that "Daily Show with Jon Stewart" scribe Kevin Bleyer was one of the writers who helped the president with his jokes at this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner.
The commander-in-chief also received an assist last year from members of the "Daily Show" writing staff, though this year Bleyer was the only one from the hit show to participate in the joke writing.
POTUS had them rolling in the aisles this year with jokes about Donald Trump, the birther controversy and disappointment in his performance in the White House. Last year's dinner won rave reviews for the president, who was said to have upstaged professional comedian, Jay Leno.
