WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House is keeping its distance from an entertainer's joke comparing commentator Rush Limbaugh to a terrorist.
Presidential spokesman Robert Gibbs on Monday was asked for President Barack Obama's reaction to the joke by comic actress Wanda Sykes at Saturday's White House Correspondents' Association dinner. Obama took part in the event.
Sykes jabbed at Limbaugh for suggesting that he wants Obama to fail.

Then why was Obama laughing?
My question too. Video, we need video.
We’re even. America is not laughing about the AF 1 fly over.
End of story.
Interesting headline. Sorry AP-—The White House already DID laugh about the 9-11 joke.
I’m more aghast at 0bama’s attempt at humor concerning the 747 flyover Manhattan which cost us over $300,000 and scared the Willies out a good many New Yorkers.
He is the spotlight jerk.
O still laughing and so is his lovely bride.
And Obama laughed........
They were laughing at the time!!!! Maybe a pollster told them to be mad...No...TOTUS told him to act mad!
Who ya gonna believe?
So is religion, but that didn't stop Obama from making religious joked comparing himself to God:
"I believe my next 100 days will be so successful that I will be able to complete them in 72 days. And on the 73rd day, I'll rest."
Not at all funny for a man with his historic roots in Islam, and who requests Georgetown to conceal a monogram of Christ when he speaks.
The jokes were utterly tasteless. Also is it not common for this event to to make fun of the president in office not the former president that has left office. The liberals and the MSM just cannot abide by the fact Bush is not in office anymore and it is not appropriate to kick him around anymore.
Limbaugh for suggesting that he wants Obama to fail.
Rush phrased his statement incorrectly. He should have said that Obama WILL fail if he attempts socialism. Socialism fails everytime it’s tried. It destroys the very wealth creating system it needs to survive. It will be no different this time.
Some folks just have to learn the hard way.
"Rush Limbaugh, I hope the country fails, I hope his kidneys fail, how about that? He needs a good waterboarding, that's what he needs."That's a "joke"?
