Obama said that although he was happy to be at the party, he was still a bit jet-lagged from his recent trip to Malaysia, reports The Huffington Post.
"The lengths we have to go to get CNN coverage these days," he said, slamming the network for its non-stop coverage of the missing Malaysian Airlines flight.

Obama joked about MSNBC for its fallen ratings in recent months:
"MSNBC is here," he began. "They're a little overwhelmed. They've never seen an audience this big before."

However, Fox News was the main target of Obama's jokes. The president took a shot at Fox News for its outrage and criticism of him after his appearance on 'Between Two Ferns' in March.
"To be fair, I am not the first person on television between two potted plants," Obama said, pointing to a photo of "Fox & Friends'" Elisabeth Hasselbeck seated between her co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade.
