Scenes From The Nerd Prom

Here’s President Obama zinging it up at last night’s White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington, D.C.

As expected, there were lots of jokes about birthers and birth certificates, but the target of most of the jokes by the president and Seth Meyers was Donald Trump, who was in the audience at the invitation of the Washington Post. Earlier this week there was consternation among the Villagers as to why they would invite him, but it turns out it might have been planned that way just to make sure he was there.

Helen Cooper of The Caucus said it was “almost painful to watch” the president make fun of Mr. Trump as he sat stonily under his halo of hair. Actually, it was hilarious. Mr. Trump got what he richly deserved and earned, and if he or his supporters can’t take it, they should find another line of work.
