Watch Obama and SNL's Seth Meyers Making Laughingstock of Trump at Press Dinner

In case you missed it, here is the video from Saturday Night's (admittedly insular, privileged and cliquey) White House Correspondents' Dinner. The jokes from the President and SNL comedian Seth Meyers were particularly successful at making Donald Trump into the joke he is, and Obama's speech and facial expressions are particularly interesting to watch now in light of the knowledge that the President had authorized the mission to kill Osama Bin Laden the next morning. Seth Meyers' joke about Osama Bin LAden hosting a show on CSPAN is worth noting for Obama's reaction shot. 

My favorite line in the President's speech was "Paul Ryan couldn't be here... his budget has no room for laughter." And my favorite line from Meyers: "Donald Trump said recently he has a great relationship with the blacks, though unless the Blacks are a family of white people, I bet he’s mistaken."
