2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner speech

What a show. If you did not watch it for whatever reason go and watch both of the featured speeches…..and do so NOW. Barack Obama and Seth Meyers were both absolutely brilliant.

Going into the event I wasn’t entirely sure I wanted Obama to even acknowledge Donald Trump but boy did he prove me wrong. Obama was absolutely masterful in his assault on Donald Trump. There are no words that will do it justice so go ahead and watch it for yourself.

According to Luke Russert of MSNBC even Terrell Owens took a shot at Donald Trump

If you dish it out, you got to take it too

That right there is the truth.





Every zinger was perfectly placed. From using “Real American” as his entrance music to his comments about 2012 GOP hopefuls there wasn’t any letdown from the President.

Seth Meyers was even funnier. He went after Donald Trump (a fellow NBC guy) just as hard as Obama did. The jokes from Meyers about C-Span were hilarious as well. How great (and true) was Meyers turning to Obama and telling him that 2008 Obama could beat him in 2012 and that the 2011 Obama would have liked 2008 Obama. Brilliant. 


Barack Obama

There’s a vicious rumor floating around that I think could really hurt Mitt Romney. I heard he passed universal health care when he was governor of Massachusetts. Someone should really get to the bottom of that.

He [Trump] can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter. Like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?

Paul Ryan couldn’t be here tonight — his budget has no room for laughing.


Seth Myers:

CSPAN is of course the official network for wide shots of empty chairs. … CSPAN is one unpaid electric bill away from being a radio station.

Donald Trump has said he’s running for president as a Republican — which is surprising because I thought he was running as a joke. 

Donald Trump owns the Miss USA pageant, which is great for Republicans because it will streamline their search for a vice president.

If your [Obama] hair gets any whiter, the tea party is going to endorse it.

Trump often appears on Fox,which is funny because a fox often appears on Donald Trump’s head.

[Trump has] said he’s got a great relationship with ‘the blacks.’ Unless the Blacks are a family of white people, I bet he’s mistaken.

As for a potential Republican field that could include Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich and Trump, that doesn’t sound like a field of candidates — that sounds like Season 13 of ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ And not the stars — the dancers.
