Quick News: Obama Correspondent Dinner


Stunner Baby Magazine was driven to focus on the witty charm of President Obama’s 2011 White House Correspondents ‘Association Dinner Speech.  At the annual event, the President joked about the year in politics, but also in the movies — sharing that there is a sequel to the film the “King’s Speech” in the works that touches close to home.

President Obama offered a sneak peak of the parody: President Obama ridiculed the real estate magnate in front of a live televised audience at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington, D.C.  As Trump and wife Melania sat among the guests gathered at the Washington Hilton, Obama poked fun at Trump’s reality show, said Trump lacked the “credentials” to be president, and mocked the businessman’s recent crusade to get Obama to release his long-form birth certificate.

“I know that he’s taken some flack lately,” Obama said of Trump. “But no one is happier, no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than The Donald.”

But then the president quickly changed gears. “And that’s because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter, like–did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are”Biggie and Tupac?” Obama said, referencing rap icons Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur.  Seth Meyers was the featured entertainer, and highlights included his own and President Obama‘s jokes mocking Donald Trump (who was present at the dinner) about his remarks questioning Obama’s citizenship and Trump’s candidacy for presidency in 2012, as well as a joke about where Osama Bin Laden had been hiding. Meyers suggested Romney’s book “No Apologies” actually indicated Romney made many mistakes.

“If I come home from a trip to Vegas and the first thing I say to my girlfriend is ‘no apologies,’ we’re gonna have a follow up conversation,” Meyers quipped. Meyers made fun of Trump’s hair, likening it to a fox that would be happy to finish the leftovers at his table, said Pawlenty makes Al Gore look like drag queen RuPaul, and joked that Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) and son Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) have something in common with Meyers and his own father: “we’re also not going to get elected president.”

The White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) is an organization of journalists who cover the White House and the President of the United States. The WHCA was founded in 1914 by journalists in response to an unfounded rumor that a Congressional committee would select which journalists could attend press conferences of President Woodrow Wilson. Among the issues handled by the WHCA are press access to the President and physical conditions in White House press briefing rooms.

The WHCA’s annual dinner, begun in 1920, has become a Washington, D.C. tradition and is usually attended by the President and Vice President. Fifteen presidents have attended a WHCA dinner, beginning with Calvin Coolidge in 1924. The dinner is traditionally held on the evening of the last Saturday in April at the Washington Hilton. In recent years the featured speaker has often been a comedian, with the dinner taking on the form of a roast, especially of the President.
