Obama And Meyers Jab Trump At White House Correspondents' Dinner

Donald Trump, as the saying goes, can dish it out but he sure can't take it. At the White House Correspondents' Dinner, he chuckled at a few of President Obama's jokes, but was all icy glares at Seth Meyers of Saturday Night Live. Both worked Trump's birtherism into their routines. First, the president, who also spoke about Trump's "credentials" (starting at 9:30):

OBAMA: Now I know that he has taken some flak lately, but no one is happier, no one is prouder to put this long firm birth certificate matter to rest than The Donald, and that’s because he 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? All kidding aside, obviously we all know about your credentials and breadth of experience. For example, no seriously, just recently in an episode of 'Celebrity Apprentice' at the steak house the men’s cooking team did not impress the judges from Omaha Steaks, and there was a lot of blame to go around, but you Mr. Trump recognized that the real problem was a lack of leadership and so ultimately you didn’t blame Lil’ Jon or Meatloaf. You fired Gary Busey, and these are kind of the decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir. Well handled.

Seth Meyers infuriated Trump (starting at 12:00) with jabs at his birtherism, combover and self-professed great relationship with "the blacks":

MEYERS: Donald Trump has been saying that he will run for president as a Republican, which is surprising since I just assumed that he was running as a joke. Donald Trump often appears on Fox, which is ironic because a fox often appears on Donald Trump's head. If you're at the Washington Post table and you can't finish your entree, don't worry; the fox will eat it  ...Gary Busey said recently that Donald Trump would make a great president. Of course, he said the same thing about an old, rusty bird cage he found. Donald Trump owns the Miss USA pageant, which is great for Republicans because it will streamline their search for a vice president. Donald Trump said recently that he has a great relationship with the blacks, though unless 'the blacks' are a family of white people, I'll bet he's mistaken. I like that Trump is filthy rich but nobody told his accent ...He still sounds like a know-it-all down at the OTB.
