President Barack Obama got a little assistance during his White House Correspondents' Dinner speech on Saturday.

Key & Peele star Keegan-Michael Key made a surprise appearance, playing the commander in chief's anger translator, Luther, who helped him voice what was really on his mind.

After Obama thanked everyone for attending the event, Luther chimed in with, "I mean, really, what is this dinner? And why am I required to come to it? Jeb Bush, do you really want to do this?"

Luther had some choice words for CNN's Ebola coverage. "For two whole weeks, we were one step away from The Walking Dead — and then you all got up and just moved on to the next thing," said Luther, who also compared Hillary Clinton to Khaleesi on Game of Thrones.

However, the tables turned when Obama's speech turned to climate change. "Miami floods on a sunny day, and instead of doing anything about it, we've got elected officials throwing snowballs in the Senate," Obama said, at which point Luther had to cut him off. 

"You don't need an anger translator; you need counseling," Luther told him.
