Funny Obama

2 05 2011

Obama is hilarious when making fun of Donald Trump at the Special Correspondents Dinner. I’m glad Obama put Trump in his place. Trump is kind of an A-hole.

Obama has experience roasting, as seen in this video from two years ago when Obama and McCain took friendly shots at each other.

I wonder who writes their jokes. Hmmmm.
