    Depending on the game, the Joker can trump all. In President Obama's favorite game, Poker,

    From Wikipedia Joker:

    #Poker  (1): A wild card. Some poker variants restrict the capabilities of the joker, only allowing it to be used as an ace, or to complete a flush or straight (when it is called a bug). Unrestricted jokers can be very powerful; they guarantee a pair, promote an existing pair to three of a kind, and promote two-pair to a full house. In some forms, the joker may be used to promote a four-of-a-kind hand into a five-of-a-kind. A five-of-a-kind is considered the highest among all hands, even the royal flush.

    #Poker (2): Alternatively, the joker is sometimes used as a buck or button to indicate which player is the dealer.
