Jay-Z, Taylor Swift Get Shout-Outs From President Obama

'I've got 99 problems but now Jay-Z is one,' President jokes at Correspondents' Dinner.

Leave it to President Obama to compare the political mess in Washington to a breakup song by one of today's biggest pop stars.

U.S. President Barack Obama tells a joke during the White House Correspondents' Association dinner"But the point of my charm offensive is simple: We need to make progress on some important issues. Take the sequester: Republicans fell in love with this thing, and now they can't stop talking about how much they hate it. It's like we're trapped in a Taylor Swift album."
