2. Did Trump think before he came to this ?
Edited on Sat Apr-30-11 10:59 PM by Grassy Knoll
Obama made him look like a child getting hid tongue stuck to a frozen
flag poll, and Seth Mugged him so bad that his hair was a fox eating
other peoples left over food, he deserved all of it. and I loved it.
The slam At Faux Noise " It was just a cartoon" priceless.

33. His ego is so huge,
that it overshadowed his common sense. Anyone else would have known there would be eventual payback, but somehow Trump thinks he is above it all.

he says....he deserved everything he got last night.

39. I'm not sure Trump could ever
get everything he deserves in one lifetime, but last night he got a big chunk of karma in his face.

He is a textbook bully, but he really crossed the line when he went after the president. Obama is hardly the same as Rosie O'Donnell.

22. how did Trump even get invited?
He couldn't muster a smile. A pout, maybe.

His mouth was all twisted up and looked like this New Yorker caricature:



I laughed my head off, especially at the admonishment to Fox that it really was a kid's cartoon. The "Yes, Michelle, this is how it gets started" was good, too.

32. I can just picture Obama that last few weeks,
smiling enigmatically, "Just wait Donald. The Correspondents' Dinner is coming up and then you are all MINE."

14. You'd think a guy with all of Trump's money
could do something about that nasty 'do. Plugs, anything. That hairstyle is so Victorian era vampire. Except for the rattail sticking down the back. I got a big laugh over how mad he was. He'll be venting his spleen all over the airwaves in the next day or two. So predictable.

30. for a good laugh, do this
Bring up CoolIris. Then in their Google image search box, put "Trump hair." Click "slideshow," sit back, and laugh your head off.

:rofl:

and

:popcorn:

The one with the arrows is hilarious. Then there's one with Trump's hair superimposed on Obama's head.

There are some with Trump's hair being blown by the wind. Those are almost frightening.

And there's one with a two-tone dye job.

35. Maybe she is Canadian? I think this should be investigated. Don't you?
After all her fears about investigation of Congress for anti-Americans, she herself my be a threat to our American ideals.

I'm kidding,but honestly, she deserved this.

29. I thought it was very funny.
I loved the video at the end with Biden.

And Seth really went into Trump. I think the best part was how they kept jumping to Trump and he was sitting there in stone silence. Oh man, if looks could kill. :rofl:

34. Watching this it's easy to remember why I loved this guy
but beyond the bright, witty persona, it's still his policies that define him.

44. On C-Span, the bottom news line read *White House Correspondents Ass*
and then cut off at the end because they ran out of space. Not sure what the rest of it would have been...but that made me laugh right off the bat. Then The President and Seth kept it going strong!

Thank you for reaffirming my belief in the Presidency. Sometimes it takes a lot (not with BO) but both of us just watched for the 3rd time and saved it.

57. I got to see the whole thing and it was brilliant.
Hell it comes on too late at night for me and I didn't dvr it so all I've got to see so far is pieces here and there. Our President is Awesome in that venue but so was Seth. Overall excellent entertainment. But I have to give it to tRump because of his presences and his body language makes this a keep sake.
