Obama Trumps Trump

Posted By on Sun, May 1, 2011 at 11:11 AM

Oh, snap. Apparently President Barack Obama can crack a joke and throw a punch. At the same time.

At last night's White House Correspondents Association Dinner, the president delivered a couple of punchlines with Donald Trump as the butt of the joke.

Among them:

“Tonight, for the first time, I am releasing my official birth video,” he declared. On the video screens around the room, up popped the birth scene from The Lion King.

“I want to make clear to the Fox News table: That was a joke,” Obama said. “That was not my real birth video. That was a children’s cartoon. Call Disney if you don't believe me. They have the original long-form version.”

Last week, President Obama released his long-form birth certificate after Trump riled up the birthers with his foray into politics as he tests the waters for a possible presidential run. Obama wasn't the only one to take aim at The Donald at last night's dinner. Saturday Night Live's Seth Meyers had a few Trump jokes of his own and—get this—The Donald was in the audience.
