Obama Buries Haters At White House Correspondents Dinner

Last night at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, President Obama absolutely eviscerated Donald Trump, who sat there stone-faced, his melon-colored hair glinting obscenely as the president leveled zinger after zinger at him. In short, it was awesome. Obama also laid into Michele Bachmann, Tim Pawlenty, Mitt Romney, Fox News -- the whole gang, really. Even Joe Biden wasn't safe, lampooned in a fake trailer for "The President's Speech."

Obama on Trump:

Donald Trump is here tonight. Now, I know that he's taken some flak lately, but no one is prouder to put this birth certificate to rest than The Donald. Now he can get to focusing on the issues that matter. Like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened at Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?

And then he brought up Celebrity Apprentice, and we can all die happy.

But why was Donald "Hair Club For Men" Trump there, anyway? "I was invited. By a lot of people," he told ABC News. Really, he was a guest of the Washington Post. They have a sick sense of humor! Good work.

Then there was Seth Meyers, this year's comedian at the dinner, who was solid. Regarding Jon Hamm: "Jon Hamm looks the way every Republican thinks they look." Zing! Also pretty sure there were some thinly veiled Anderson Cooper gay jokes around 8:10. The Trump jokes start around 12:00 ("Donald Trump often appears on Fox, which is ironic because a fox often appears on Donald Trump's head."):

And for good measure, here's the trailer for "The President's Speech":

OK, so Barack Hussein Obama succeeded in being very cute here with his childish, offensive cheap shots.  Is THIS what the Liberal/Progressive agenda is truly all about?  Politics in the U.S.A. has increasingly become a circus clown show, but the joke is on the majority of the citizens.  Take care we don't lose our sense of humor.

Obama is the president. He should act presidential. This is sad he responded at all.

Just when you thought the Republican faithful couldn't find anyone more deranged and unqualified than Bachmann or Sally Kern....

So u wouldn't reply to someone if you're the first president to be asked for you're birth certificate just because u don't look like the other presidents? Just because they were white doesn't mean they weren't from another country. Donald Trump just gave him a hard time because there is a black man in the oval office. That's racist and I would definitely defend myself against racism.

You found this un-presidential? Bet you didn't have a problem with Bush's "Where's the WMD".

Not racist, just STOOPID! And everybody should make fun of stoopid folk, lest they reproduce.

I like that Spock - I mean Obama - can find it in himself to mock the jackasses.
