Obama Rules The White House Correspondents Dinner

In case you missed the event, President Obama was quite funny from start to finish. His presentation started after former wrestler Hulk Hogan's patriotic anthem, "Real American," played. Images of Americana from Mount Rushmore to Uncle Sam were shown on the screen, while images of his "long form birth certificate" flashed intermittently. He then offered to show his live birth video, which turned out to be a clip from the Disney film, "The Lion King." He then advised Fox News, it was a joke. The presidents comedic timing and delivery are quite good. Seth Meyers had a tough act to follow.

SNL comedian Seth Meyers was next. In one segment (at 13:45) regarding Trump's "I have a good relationship with the blacks" comment; Meyers quipped, "unless 'the blacks' are a family of white people, I'll bet he is mistaken. Video of "The Donald" during Meyers routine showed a very displeased casino mogul.
