For the final time, President Barack Obama delivered one-liners and laughs at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, dissing himself, Congress, and his upcoming status as’ a lame duck’
Obama pretended to be wrapping up his remarks with no mention of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
“Well let me conclude tonight on a more serious note. I want to thank the Washington press corps,” Obama said. “The free press is central to our democracy and … nah! I’m just kidding! You know I’m gonna talk about Trump! Come on!,” he said.
“And it is surprising: You’ve got a room full of reporters, celebrities, cameras — and he says no,” Obama continued.
“Is this dinner too tacky for The Donald? What could he possibly be doing instead? Is he at home, eating a Trump steak, tweeting out insults to Angela Merkel? What’s he doing?”
Obama joked about Trump’s foreign policy experience, saying, “There’s one area where Donald’s experience could be invaluable, and that’s closing Guantanamo. Because Trump knows a thing or two about running waterfront properties into the ground.”
