This has been gone over but I like Jason Easley's analysis.
Obama Makes Trump His Bitch At White House Correspondents’ Dinner
April 30, 2011
By Jason Easley
From the opening strains of Hulk Hogan’s theme song “Real American” to his pointed humor through out, President Barack Obama took a victory lap for killing the birther issue, and he wasted no time gutting Donald Trump.
Before the dinner Trump told ABC News that he didn’t think the President would address him in his remarks. Obama not only addressed Trump, but he also gave him a taste of big time politics.
After Obama played a clip from The Lion King which he called his official birth video, he said, “I wanna make clear to the Fox News table that was a joke. 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.”
Obama later got into Donald Trump, “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?”
The President the mocked Trump’s executive experience, “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 the decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir. Well handled.”
Obama used this lighthearted forum to introduce Donald Trump to the rough and tumble world of big time politics. Donald Trump was schooled by Obama on how to take out a critic, not with an F-Bomb, but a smile.
The President’s jokes this year were sharper and more pointed. Obama’s humor had an edge to it. He used his speech to answer his critics, and I think blow off some steam. He addressed the disappointment that some feel about his job performance, the birther nonsense, took plenty of political jabs at potential 2012 rivals, and mocked the people who are obsessed with his teleprompter.
This was President Obama gearing up for the 2012 campaign, and it was obvious that Donald Trump was in Obama’s house tonight. He was the guppy. Obama was the shark, and the President ate him alive.
Obama shattered the right’s delusions and dreams that Donald Trump is their savior, the man who will take Obama on.
Donald Trump is an amateur who was taken to the cleaner’s by the best pro in the business. Obama might have been joking, but his message to Trump was clear: I own this world, so do yourself a favor and stick to playing the tough guy on TV.
Obama has always laughed at the birthers. Tonight, he laughed in Donald Trump’s face.
Donald Trump has a new daddy, and his name is President Barack Obama.
