Obama lampoons Trump, releases 'birth video' at annual dinner

(CNN) - President Barack Obama poked fun at everyone - from his wife to Donald Trump - during the annual White House Correspondents dinner, before ending his speech with a tribute to journalists who brave deadly conditions to get a story.

No one was safe from the president's zings on Saturday night, including Republican presidential challengers.

    just ignore these idiots, move on....cut spending on defense, tax oil companies bring it to treasury, prosecute oil speculators, Tax cheats, etc,, Strengthen dollar, it is more important.....focus on alternate energy....fuel-efficiency, stringent immigration, etc., nation will be on right track....bring back manufacturing jobs, call centers jobs, bring back cotton industry, and apparel industry.....give advertisements such as "No Greed, Nation's Need". "Alternate Energy, Nation's Clergy" "Education, Kids Motion".

    Obama's speach was not funny. Infact the brith certificute he issued looks like a forgery. What a loser we have for a president.

    This is definitely the best WH correspondents dinner ever!!! The President was funny and Seth Meyers was over the top ni a way that only he can get away with it. Trump, on the other hand, looked like he had to go to the bathroom and at times I thought he would use that to get away from what was very deservedly coming his way!! Thin skin there bad combover?
    I would like to know what happened to the porker from AK though. She has had plastic surgery on her yes, chin and I really and truly have one word for her if she is going to waste all that money before trying to look like somebody else . . . . . liposuction.

    @truman, the only loser is you because your brain is not working properly. Why don't you ask what's his face in AZ where he was really born in Panama?
    I see from your post that you probably heard that dumb dumb on faux news talk about the green colors on the certificate. I guess folding what is probably a large book to make one copy doesn't come into play. Then again, you birthers and racists are all looking at the world through very dark demonic colored glasses.

    @Truman...Really? Some people rather believe in hocus pocus no matter what evidence you.

    I think Barry Soretoro has a great future as a celebrity. He loves the media attention and calls on Clooney/Longoria to advise him on Sudan/illegals. Being able to laugh and perform when so many of your people are hurting...is tragic. He could have turned into a fundraiser for tornado/fire victims. But too busy raising 1 billion to buy reelection.
