Seth Meyers and President Obama Kill at the WHCA Dinner.

I’m continually impressed at the comedic delivery of President Obama. Last night at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner was no exception. Sure he’s got some of the best writers but his timing is getting really good.

Got served at dinner

Both he and Meyers went after Donald Trump pretty hard. Trump was visibly fuming, particularly during Meyers’ portion of the evening. And Meyers took no prisoners.

Some of Meyers’ more scathing zingers:

Trump “said he’s running as a Republican,” said Meyers. “Which is surprising: I just assumed he was running as a joke.”

It didn’t stop there. Trump “often appears on Fox,” said Meyers, which is funny “because a fox often appears on Donald Trump’s head.”

Meyers noted that Trump owns the Miss USA Pageant, “which is great for Republicans because it will streamline the search for a vice president.”

I suspect we’ll hear less about the birther issue from this point forward. Although Trump has proven that if anything, he’s predictably unpredictable. I can only hope the media won’t cooperate if he keeps up the rhetoric.

    The one thing the right can not seem to get a handle on is humor. As a group they are about as humorless as any thing I have seen in my lifetime. I guess it is true if one does not wish to be the butt of jokes then it may be best to refrain from being a butt head to start with.

    Osama bin Laden is dead.

    Tomorrow, the war will go on. Tonight, God bless America!
