Comedian Seth Meyers and Obama roasted Donald Trump in 2011 at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner with some brutal “jokes” but who has the last laugh?
Some say this is the night that President Trump decided to run for office. Aren’t we lucky he did!
The NYDN reported: The “Apprentice” host, who plans to run for president in 2012, was the butt of quite a few cracks from “Saturday Night Live” head writer Seth Meyers:
“Donald Trump has been saying that he will run for president as a Republican,” said Meyers. Which is surprising because I just assumed he was running as a joke.”
When the camera cut to the tycoon, he just sat there stoically.
And of course, there had to be one about Trump’s infamous comb-over.
“Donald Trump often appears on Fox, which is ironic because a fox often appears on Donald Trump’s head,” Meyers continued.
Again, no reaction from Trump, as those around him tried to stifle their laughter.
CNN reported a follow-up IN 2016:
A number of people have speculated that the road to Republican candidate Donald Trump’s campaign began at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner. That evening, President Barack Obama and comedian Seth Meyers traded off taking jabs at the then-host of the NBC reality TV show “The Apprentice.” A stone-faced Trump watched the comedy routines from the audience.
