Ah, a simpler time. When there's a president now who's skipping the White House Correspondents' Dinner, resurrecting a sinister phrase in history, "enemy of the people", to disparage the free press, the dinner from 17 years ago left us with an artifact delightful from start to finish. Bill Clinton stars as himself in The Final Days, satirizing the "lame duck" issue.
It's hard to stop laughing throughout the short, seeing the President of the United States washing his own car, trimming his own garden after Al Gore speaks of his legacy in green spaces. What kind of President would submit himself to the indignity of a short like this? A President with a sense of humour about himself and life in general, a jovial personality who wants to put people at ease at an event like a media dinner.Makes up for Clinton not actually acting in Contact (1997)!
