The President also didn't hold back when it came to wife Michelle Obama's bangs in Photoshopped pics, or to his own notorious college pot smoking.

Weighing in on the success of the site BuzzFeed, he said "I remember Buzz Feed was just something I did in college around 2 a.m. [pause] It's true."

He took plenty of shots at himself, as well. On his aging rapidly in the White House, he said: "I'm not the strapping young Muslim socialist I used to be."

Referencing his trip to the George W. Bush Library last week, Obama said that some want him to build his in his birthplace ... but he'd prefer the U.S.

He chided Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for his 2016 election ambitions while not even finishing one Senate term - a frequent criticism of Obama in 2008.

Obama and the event's host, Conan O'Brien, made for a formidable 1-2 punch. Check out Conan's remarks below and tell us who was funnier ...
