Obama Speaks at White House Correspondents Dinner 2011

Obama went for it. He let Trump have it and so did Seth. (Watch Seth here). I mean Obama really put Trump in his place. After weeks of Trump's nonsense, it was very, very satisfactory. Welcome to America Trump! Full video (transcript).  CSPAN is doing reruns here. "My fellow Americans. Mahalo:"

Obama rips on Matt Damon who told Piers Morgan he's no longer an Obama supporter:

Obama takes on Mitt Romney and Trump:

Where's the National Public Radio table? Obama says he heard Michele Bachmann was born in Canada. "Yes, Michele, this is how it starts."

This is a pretty funny White House trailer that was showed:

This live stream begins tonight at 10:00 pm ET. SNL's Seth Meyers will headline the event, following Obama. The dinner's purpose is to raise money for scholarships.  More about the dinner here.  Apparently, the classless loudmouth Trump is going to be in the room as a guest of the Washington Post. How odd the Post would invite him. John Boehner will also be at the Post table. Anyway, this is the dinner where Obama gets to be funny and usually he's pretty funny. He could either mock Trump or ignore him. Some of the other folks who will be there include Bristol Palin, ugh, Michael Stipe of REM, Shaun White. See the guest list here. CSPAN is also offering live coverage at 6:45 PM ET.
