President Obama Blasts Donald Trump (And Others) At White House Correspondents' Dinner

| Filed under: Matt DamonPolitikBarack ObamaDonald Trump

FUNNY!

President Obama was on fire at the White House Correspondents' Dinner Saturday night and nobody was safe!

He joked about Donald Trump's birther campaign, taking aim at Donald's "credentials," while also poking fun at Matt Damon, Fox News, Michele Bachman, and even VP Joe Biden.

Even Obama's opening sequence was pretty epic. Watch his HIGHlarious speech (above).

    WTF, he had Hulk Hogan's entrance music.

    Barry, just resign already! You are such a fucking distraction. You're worse than Nixon in the last weeks of his presidency and Jimmy Carter's entire presidency COMBINED. It's still amazing that you hid your long-form birth certificate for over 3 years then were forced to release it when Trump was hounding you. You looked so weak. You are not going to win re-election. Everyone knows you suck as prez, we already voted in the 1st "black" prez plus Trump robbed you of your October suprise in 2012. You will lose. Funny!



  3. 3

    hahaha shit just got REAL. good for obama for calling him out and for keeping it classy and light hearted while doing so. uh, i still cannot believe that he had the nerve to show up. he has no pride or class whatsoever. there's a thing called damage control, he should look into it. he is just the worst. just all around bad.



  4. 4

    Trump clearly deserved it, President Obama was funny!!! Seth Meyers was too funny!!!= WIN!!!!!!!!!!



  5. 5

    Obama is a classless idiot and the least Presidential President we've ever had in this country. Can't wait for him to get booted out of office. And for all you "racer" idiots out there who think this is a racist comment, you're all idiots too. We voted him in regardless of color and now we want him out! America is no place for Marxist thought or leadership.



  6. 6

    He is just so Presidential usually Presidents make FUN OF THEMSELVES at this shin dig, not roast their enemies. IMPEACH OBAMA for lack of leadership or something.



  7. 7

    B.O. needs to cool it.



  8. 8

    absolutely incredible :P he is very likeable better than Britain's shitty prime minister Cameron!



  9. 9

    Obama is THE joke!!!!



  10. 10

    So President Obama's Grandmother and 1/2 brother is a liar?



  11. 11

    Re: LilB57

    I agree- I hate our PM…Obama's doing his best given the situation the last President left the country in and doesn't deserve all this abuse.



  12. 12

    strong, funny, confident - doesn't wilt under pressure - I like it!



  13. 13

    Obama did an excellent job in this forum - he showed his witty, humanistic side and he balanced that with his presidential side. Very well-rounded approach that was happily received by the attendees. Well done.



  14. 14

    funny!!!



  15. 15

    HATE obama.



  16. 16

    hey we elected a Preident to lead us, not to try out for a part on Saturday Night Live for god sake!



  17. 17

    Re: Chloe Wilson – sorry to hear about your situation. thank you for your kind words. i worry about how other countries view us because of what bush did. he was awful and really messed things up for us. you are correct, obama is doing the best he can given the mess he had to walk into, which was huge. i hope things get better in your neck of the woods, i know how bad is it to have a poor leader.



  18. 18

    Re: jedimaster12 – yes, because god forbid our president be both capable and funny. and fyi- a sense of humor is a sign of intelligence.



  19. 19

    I MAY NOT BE A SUPPORTER OF TRUMP BUT THAT WHOLE BIRTH CERTIFICATE SHIT WAS FUCKED UP BECAUSE OBAMA WAS NOT BORN IN HAWAII AND THE FACT THAT HE SHOWED THE COUNTRY A FAKE IS JUST AN INSULT TO THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY..
    OBAMA IS A FAKE AND HE IS SO FULL OF SHIT YOU CAN SMELL IT WHEN HE'S IN THE VICINITY….



  20. 20

    Ok, so he's a comedian now? He needs to ax this shit and get the hell over it. There are more important matters and the U.S. is in shitty state. So grow up and do your damn job and quit trying to be some celebrity chum.



  21. 21

    awesome! he nailed it!



  22. 22

    obama: 1 republicans: 0. OWNED hahahahahah



  23. 23

    I LOVE OBAMA!!!!!



  24. 24

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – You poor ignorant person! Obama showed Trump what a jerk he is. Intelligent, articulate and presidential all the way! You and Irvinegirl can get together and watch more propaganda on Faux.



  25. 25

    Re: BELLA blue – it's time for your valium, dear.



  26. 26

    UHM, he has JOKE, SPEECH WRITERS, NONE OF THAT WAS HIM MARIO! and we do not need a COMEDIAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE, we need someone who is a CEO, WHO BRINGS both EVERYONE TOGETHER, not pushes them apart, someone who is A UNITER, someone who knows what issues are IMPORTANT and what ISSUES are not, and need to be addressed and put to bed QUICKLY. Someone who gets respect from LEADERS OF THE WORLD and KNOWS PROPER ETIQUITTE when talking, treating, and gifting these leaders. SOMEONE WHO KNOWS ECONOMICS, FINANCES…… uhm… one day maybe



  27. 27

    Re: Irvinegirl – Very defensive about that race issue, eh? I find that someone who has to call out or bring attention to the fact that they aren't racist……generally tends to be racist.



  28. 28

    Re: Meggie246624 – I agree. I thought he was good. I can't believe the hate in these comments though. It is normal to disagree with a politician sometimes, but the level of hate aimed at Obama is ridiculous and only makes the complainers look like closed minded idiots.



  29. 29

    everytime he does something like this, carter will not admit it, but he is turning to Roslyn at night and saying, See, I am NOT THE WORSE PRESIDENT EVER, so you can now leave the house with your head up high, OKAY?



  30. 30

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver
    Yesssss! Let's reelect Bush and go further down the drain.

    BTW: He never «hid» the long form, he showed the short one, which should have been quite enough for everybody.



  31. 31

    Re: Irvinegirl
    Obama marxist?
    Wow! You really need to go back to school!



  32. 32

    Obama was so funny yesterday and I can't believe some of the comments on here seriously people learn to laugh. Obama can take it and dish it unlike Trump who can't stand to be laughed at. Only arrogant people can't learn to laugh at themself once in awhile.



  33. 33

    WOW Obama is just such a great speaker. Great speech, and I loved the way he ended it. He's a standup guy…



  34. 34

    Re: BeautifulDisaster311 – The White house Correspondent's Dinner is supposed to be fun…. that's why it's always hosted by a comedian. Have a sense of humor! Politicians deserve to have weekends too!



  35. 35

    Re: BELLA blue – Holy caps lock, Robin! Calm down. Are you a professional birth certificate detective? Cool job, where do I sign up? Perhaps at the campus of Get Over It University? Classes are expensive there, though. Maybe I can take some online courses and get a 2 year degree at Let's Make Stupid Stuff Up Because We Have Nothing Else to Go On College. A letter of recommendation would really help, given your abilities……Just don't write it all in caps.



  36. 36

    Re: BELLA blue – Can you prove it?



  37. 37

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – you sound like an idiot. Is that you Trump??? lmao. Obama is no worse than any of the other hypocrites…at least he looks better and speaks better than the rest. Theyre all phonies. Wake the hell up and get off the color train this country was, is and will be a mess regardless if barack is in office or not. dumb ass



  38. 38

    Re: Irvinegirl – these are clearly comments FROM THE SAME PERSON..no YOUNG person of this generation thinks like this…get off perezhilton and go back to FOX news you dumb ass idiots



  39. 39

    Re: BeautifulDisaster311 – He actually was doing his job. This was not a political event - this was a correspondent's dinner. The purpose of this is to thank the media for the job they do by giving them a dinner at the White House that is fun, easy and relaxed. His humour was absolutely appropriate for this venue.



  40. 40

    Oh god, you people are never satisfied! Get a sense of humor, geez! I believe Obama is doing the best he can given the messy situation the last President left this country in. So go watch a comedy movie and learn to laugh!



  41. 41

    Trump is acting desperate. Trump is a great business man. He should stick to that. He is not presidental material.



  42. 42

    Re: justtfax – you sound ignorant "respect from world leaders?" yea Bush had that, so did his father. get over it. like it or not Obama is here to stay and all your "white" friends voted him in and are going to re elect him again. so I suggest you either move to another country or you take a big gulp of stfu. china is going to lead the world with the #1 economy by 2016..that is NOT obamas fault. Thats b/c these republican morons have been sending our jobs over seas and paying ppl 10 cents instead of keeping the jobs here and paying americans fair wages. wake up dumb ass



  43. 43

    So, he's got time to be a comedian and take more vacations than any other president ever has–you'd think he'd be putting a little effort into, you know, doing his job.

    Wow, that's reassuring. Between all this garbage and making time to appear on television, he's really pushing this country into becoming nothing but one big joke. How's that for funny?



  44. 44

    Re: BIG TRUTH – LMAO, Love it BIG TRUTH



  45. 45

    Re: Meggie246624Re: Manda756 – I get this. But every since day one, he's turned being a president into being a popularity contest. I get it, he's a likable guy, he's just not president material. He should've been the bigger man and just ignored it. Now, this is just going to drag it out further.



  46. 46

    That was brilliant, its pretty pathetic that people are actually angry because he has a sense of humour.



  47. 47

    Fuck the republicans, they all suck!!!



  48. 48

    Re: BeautifulDisaster311 – Well, we're each entitled to our own opinions, and I respect yours as well. However, I will respectfully disagree with you on your comment that he's "not presidential material". That's a rather moot comment, as he is, in fact, the president.



  49. 49

    I personally loved it and instead of avoiding it he faced the problem head on, people bitch too much about what he does right and wrong instead of applauding him for his efforts. This was purely genius.



  50. 50

    It is pretty sad when the president mocks american symbolism in his opening video. What a HORRIBLE American.



  51. 51

    Re: BIG TRUTH – you have no idea what you are talking about.



  52. 52

    hahahahaha can't stop laughing at the opening video and the lion king, I am sure the donald is gonna question his "birth lion king" footage



  53. 53

    Re: justtfax – Was he speaking incorrectly? What etiquette was he missing? And the humor is used to lighten the mood. It seemed like most of the people there were enjoying themselves during the speech. Humor is universal. It is used to bring people together. To unite them, if you will.



  54. 54

    Re: Electro_storm – nice comment. Really shows how smart you are.



  55. 55

    chant–"4 MORE YEARS! 4 MORE YEARS! 4 MORE YEARS!" I love this man!

  56. Blunt says – reply to this


    56

    lmao the lion king part was genius

    Shudder the thought, Fuckhead!



  58. 58

    Re: playing now – You're absolutely right. Obama showed Trump (and the entire world) what a jerk Obama is. Barry lectured America about getting wrapped up in the circus-like atmosphere that he himself created. Barry Obama caused the birther scandal. Then Barry, the jerk as you put it, hops on a plane to have a chit-chat with Oprah. What a jerk!



  59. 59

    BWAHAHAHHAHAHA!! I LOVE IT!!!! LMAOOOOOO! ummm last i checked "EVERY" POTUS tells jokes and makes light of situations at these events……Seth was funny also!!!



  60. 60

    This just made an Obama supporter. Wow hell just froze over. He is hilarious no matter what all these haters say and everyone should just shut the fuck up and get used to him because he'll be in office the next term too I bet my fucking life on it. TOO BAD! :)



  61. 61

    Re: BIG TRUTH – YOU ARE HILARIOUS!



  62. 62

    Re: curiousred – Shut the fuck up, you stupid fucking foreigner! I will never forget the post where you wished for bad things to happen to America. I hate you. Americans don't like foreigners and I don't give a fuck if a couple of jerkoffs here tell you that I'm wrong. Most Americans don't have passports. Does that tell you anything? We're the richest country in the world and most people don't have passports. Something is going on there and I submit to you it's because foreigners are asswipes.



  63. 63

    Re: justtfax – he's still smarter than you douchebag



  64. 64

    Re: luvs2tango – What are you talking about? Bush inherited a 4% unemployment rate when he took office. When he left office the unemployment rate was 7.2% learn the facts.



  65. 65

    Re: BIG TRUTH – LOL Obama "looks better" than the rest? What in the H are you talking about? Obama is one of those rare biracial people who are ugly. LOL And his Dumbo ears? The guy is a political cartoonist's wet dream. As for Obama being a good speaker, yes, if he has a teleprompter then he's a decent speaker…similiar to Hitler in riling up you Germans, oops, meant to say riling up you liberals. Without a teleprompter, Barry Obama is dumber than most 6 year olds. 57 states, corpse men are just two examples of dumb shit from Obama.



  66. 66

    Re: BIG TRUTH – "china is going to lead the world with the #1 economy by 2016..that is NOT obamas fault." Actually it is Obama's fault. He is too busy kissing the asses of foreign dictators and not actually creating a plan to strengthen our dollar against the yuan. Secondly it is actually the Obama and his Democrats who have led large American companies to outsourcing in other countries. He continues to vote for a higher corporate tax rate which leads companies who want to try to actually profit heading for other countries with lower tax rates. Maybe if Obama was as good a President as he is a comedian we wouldn't be having this problem.



  67. 67

    Absolutely loved it and thought it was very fitting considering it's the White House Correspondents' dinner. If Trump can attack him, Obama can slap him right back. Also really liked the fact he took some jabs at himself and that Trump seemed to be able to laugh at some of it and be a good sport about it.
    And to Re: Eldridge Cleaver – no, he didn't look weak at all, quite the opposite actually and if you would read some media other than Fox (national and international press) you would learn that they too thought Obama was on top of his game and used the appropriate platform for his response. But then again, you probably don't care what other people think do you? At least not those who disagree with you…



  68. 68

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – and you are NOT the richest country in the world you dumb twit, you are the country with the biggest DEBT! You're followed by the UK and Germany. When looking at GDP per capita you're not even in the top 5. Luxembourg, Qatar and Norway are the 3 richest countries in the world.



  69. 69

    Re: BIG TRUTHRe: playing now – LMAO U guys have me CFTU!!! I think Eldridge has a guy crush on Mr. President!! He stalks his post like the chick in "The Roomate"!! I read a comment that someone made towards the Obama bashers and it goes "Its sad when stupid ppl are jus smart enough to know that they are stupid, because they become really angry individuals" LMAOOOOO (the 1st one of them to come with a rebutal to this post is a prime example) LMAOOOO



  70. 70

    Re: Moogle80 – LOL No, I'm cool with you. Still think you're wrong though. I do, in fact, check out all sorts of different news outlets. I've been kicked off the Huff Post 3 times if that tells you anything. Sure, the liberal/Democratic websites supported Barry's decision to release the long-form birth certificate and their only criticism was for birthers. I don't care. It's still shady. Why did he hide it in the first place? Why did he hide it for so long? And how does it not look like he caved in to Trump? There is no way Barry would've released it if not for Trump giving daily interviews about it.



  71. 71

    Re: Moogle80 – Fuck per capita GDP. The US has the highest GDP in the world. We are the richest country. LOL How dare you compare a nation of over 300 million to some shitbox with 47 people in it?



  72. 72

    This was amazing!

  73. ONIT says – reply to this


    73

    He's amazing! I like him even more now.



  74. 74

    Impeach this man alongside George W. Bush immediately.



  75. 75

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – "one of those rare biracial people who are ugly." wow, with statements like that, how are you not running? and can you please explain the logic behind your use of profanity? fuck is okay, but hell has to be censored? and hey, im cool with you comparing him to hitler, and im jewish. hitler was so successful because he was an amazing orator, everyone knows that. so what you are saying is that you think obama is a great public speaker? COOL! and ps- im sorry that the 6 year olds you know are so cognitively impaired, but please dont insult the 6 years with normal functioning brains.



  76. 76

    When did we turn President entrances into LA Lakers ceremony openings? This might top Bush on the aircraft carrier's 'Mission Accoplished'. Embarrassing.



  77. 77

    Re: Chloe Wilson – Obama is doing nothing but smiling. The entire administration that surrounds him is doing what THEY want. He has no say in anything. The bankers rule Obama and he is their greatest gift as he has made them more money (Rothschild / Queen ) than any president, given the bailouts (which would include the first bailout under Bush / Hank Paulson).



  78. 78

    So now he's a comedian? I have jokes too, how about your accomplishments in office. Now THATS a joke. Now wasn't it you who said we shouldn't be distracted and should focus on the real issues? Seems to me like you're still dwelling on these "distractions." But I guess you were too busy filming another TV appearance or going on another vacation to start investing yourself in these important issues. The best was his stab at Matt Damon, that was the best. Here is someone who is as far LEFT as they come and still voiced his disappointments. Must really sting when supporters of your own party are unhappy with your performance.



  79. 79

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – You never disappoint! Always a hoot. I doubt your efforts here will change any of these sheeples' thinking though.



  80. 80

    Perez - please post the video clip of Trump calling into Fox news, where he whines about the evening being inappropriate, and that he shouldn't have been the sole focus of the evening. His whimpering & complaining is just too funny. Please post asap! thanks.



  81. 81

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – my birth certificate has been in a safebox for 25 years….havent shown it to anyone. if you asked me to see it i would say no, because that is creepy, and i have nothing to prove to you because i know where i was born and i didnt do anything wrong. but by your super genius logic, i guess that would mean i wasnt born in america. you assume he is hiding something because he didn't show it. its so sad you cant fathom the idea that someone wouldnt care to validate petty lies with a response. its a matter of principle, but i wouldnt expect you to understand something like that.



  82. 82

    That is not an official or long form birth certificate. WOW. The bankers in London really do have control of pretty much everything in the United States.



  83. 83

    omg omg! hahaha



  84. 84

    It's happened - Donald Trump went crying because somebody made fun of him and is stupid ideas. Team Obama - WINNING



  85. 85

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – How 'dare' I? No wonder you like Trump so much! So the fact that these countries actually have available funds and you have none doesn't mean anything? And in comparison with the US most countries are, as you so eloquently put it, 'shitboxes'. Regardless, shouting you're the richest country in the world when you fund wars with non-existing money and have a 12 trillions 250 billions dollars debt doesn't add up.

    Re: Tsinakis – It's not a state occasion, it's the correspondent's dinner, and the whole night is about humored reflection. Does that kind of humor make Colbert a horrible American? Lighten up.



  89. 89

    and now everyone, everyone, look under your seats… A few of you, 3 to be exact, have envelopes taped to your chairs…. Yes, those 3 people have a CERTIFICATE that does not allow ANY GAS STATION TO CHARGE THEM more than $3.00 a gallon for gas for the next 2 years! HEY, HEY SECURITY, over there, MEDICS MEDICS. What is happening! Put down the Knife! you guys can't afford $5 bucks a gallon? Why aren't you getting the Volt?



  90. 90

    Re: caravaggio the terrible – It's the Correspondents' Dinner, it's SUPPOSED to fun and light-hearted and whimsical! Actually know what you're talking about and don't compare one of Bush's political slips with an evening that is always filled with music and comedy which only goal is to entertain those present.



  91. 91

    Trump to Obama: you're fired!



  92. 92

    You have got to be kidding me. This is our president, the leader of the free world!!! He really stepped to a new low here. He really showed weakness in his speech. This guy just can't stand it when people don't like him. all I can say is let the gas prices climb higher and higher and maybe then people will vote him out of office. I fear that if we leave him in, our country will fall more and more into depression. We need somebody who will lead us and not somebody who obviously watches Fox news and Donald Trump. What a low life this guy is.

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Per capita GDP is everything. It denotes standard of living for the majority of the population. You could move Gates onto a poverty stricken sovereign island of 100,000 and it's GDP could go to number one, yet Gates might be the only one who knew where his next meal is coming from.

    Re: @v@ – Exactly. But that explanaition doesn't help Eldridge so he dismisses it, obviously. It's the way some people roll. I'm actually amazed by the amount of people who have no idea what this dinner is about or act like this is the first time they've heard of it. Seeing that it's been around since the 1920's and all.



  98. 98

    Donald Trump got OWNED!! haha..he had it coming!!

    Re: Moogle80 – I'm also a sideways fan of Eldrige for other reasons. He spouts what he's been fed.



  100. 100

    Re: justtfax – Why should Americans pay less for gas than the rest of the world? In the U.K. we pay $10 per gallon, as a result most people drive economical cars. If most Americans drove normal cars rather than unnecessarily powerful gas guzzlers you would use less gas and therefore pay less. A concept that most of the rest of the world understands but you seem unable to grasp. $5 per gallon is fuck all when you put it in perspective. Oil prices are only going to go up as the world's reserves become depleted. Suck it up or drive something sensible.

    Obama's speech was hilarious, showed Trump up for the ass he is. Anyone who still thinks he's a credible presidential candidate is deluding themselves.
