White House Correspondents Dinner: President Obama Mocks Mitt Romney, Donald Trump, Himself

by at . Comments

With political, media and entertainment A-listers in attendance, President Obama wasted no time bringing the laughs at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

The annual event last night gave Obama a chance to lighten the mood in a heated election year, though presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney still a target.

“It’s nice to be here in the nice, vast Hilton ballroom. Or as Mitt Romney would call it, a fixer-upper,” Obama said of his rival, who is often labeled elitist.

“We both have degrees from Harvard," he said, noting that the politicians do have some things in common. "I have one, he has two ... what a snob!”

Obama got plenty of mileage out of the "dog wars" between the respective camps, running an entire fake ad from the WOOF-PAC in "support" of Mitt.

Nor could the president resist poking fun at another one-time "rival."

Referencing his address at the 2011 dinner, where he bashed Donald Trump repeatedly just hours before Osama bin Laden was killed, Obama said that one year ago, he had “finally delivered justice to one of the world’s most notorious individuals.”

A photo of Trump was prominently displayed in the background.

The president also joked about Sarah Palin, Joe Biden’s verbal gaffes and Hillary Clinton texting him drunk, but saved plenty of verbal barbs for himself.

Obama referenced his low poll numbers, the fact that he ate a dog as a child in Indonesia, and allegations that he wasn’t born in the U.S. (again).

He then rattled off a list of some of the shortcomings of his first three years in office and the "secret agenda" for the second term he's trying to win and much more to conclude the nearly 16-minute speech the "nerd prom."

A term, as he put it, coined by D.C. insiders who never went to an actual prom.

Funniest President ever? How do you think he did?

It doesn't make a tinker's damn WHO voted for him last time..whites or blacks. The things is? Look at his record, his failed policies and the effect it's had on the US economy. Look at all the graff and corruption that's being revealed day by day...and how his Admin. has squandered billions$$ of taxpayer dollars for frivolous things. Him and wifey spending tax dollars for trips, etc. so they can play the rich liberal elitists while trashing Romney for merely being successful and realizing the American dream. All that alone is enough to vote against The Anointed One. Note that all the negatives I listed above about the Prez have NOTHING to do with race. Instead, all this has EVERYTHING to do with character, credibility, a flawed vision, failed leadership, and hypocrisy. Romney 2012.

This is going to come as a shock to most of the Racists but.... Obama was voted in by Whites- he also will be voted out by whites in 2012 and people will scream Racism.
He came across as a savior and he has fell flat. Yet Blacks will vote for him because he is Black & Blame the whites.

No- its never to early for the race card. Just as blacks voted for him because he is black- blacks also will scream
Racism at whites for not voting for him. Truth is- he has done a terrible job at almost everything. He is not a Leader.

If Obama was White he would not get 20% of the votes. Time to get his ass out. People voted him in because he was black- plus they were tired of the Bush era. It hasn't worked out. Time for a charge.

I always loved Obama...and i will vote for him again, and i hope he wins the presidency for another 4 years, but i must say, honestly his jokes weren't the least bit funny...i know he has writers, but some of the jokes were just plain outright stupid....talking about dicks, seriously, that was done in poor taste, and i did not like this dinner at all...i watch this every year, and i was very disappointed this year...Jimmy Kimmell was just ok....kind of bland, and he looked nervous...and don't get me started on the celebrity list...for instance, why on earth was pimp mother trashian and the biggest hoe of the century at a classy event...i lost all respect for the President, just knowing he knew this piece of garbage was attending the dinner, also Lindsay Lohen...could he really have stooped any lower.....ughh.....................
