WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is mixing mixed comedy with some early campaigning at the White House Correspondents' Association annual dinner, focusing mainly on Donald Trump.
With Trump in attendance, Obama said the billionaire businessman has shown the acumen of a future president, from firing Gary Busey on a recent episode of "Celebrity Apprentice" to focusing so much time on conspiracy theories about Obama's birthplace.

I have no real political regard for Trump but let’s face it — he’s living rent-free in their heads at this point.
One thing you can say for Trump is that he gets things done. The question is whether that’s good or bad.
And well Obama should mock Trump. What has Trump ever done?
He has never been a community organizer.
Trump has never not worked a day in his life.
Trump has never not expected anything other than a handout.
Well, isn’t that rich?
Obama is really acting childish, certainly not as the President of the United States should. The guy is a pathetic fool.
“Trump could now focus on the serious issues: “Did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?”
The president of the United States has no right to attack a patriotic and private American citizen like Donald Trump.
Hey Zero, I heard your mother’s number was in Spitzers little black book. Now say something funny Barry!
What a horrible campaign speech (it was not comedic in any way) that despicable Kenyan gave tonight. Ridiculing Trump that way.
I could almost see the smoke coming out of Trump’s ears. Donald, like me, is a native New Yorker. We don’t get mad—we get even.
Most of the jokes were stupid, but Trump was foolish not to laugh at himself while the camera was on him.
Does anyone know of Trumps history of “PAYBACK”?
You got that right!
Yea, but, as much as I have been impressed with his taking Little Stevie Dunham on, I’m getting nervous about Trump’s connections to soros’ money.
There’s something there. And it stinks...and, it’s gonna come out.
Why in the world would Trump need money from Soros?
That about sums him up.
I saw just a tiny bit of it (It was on when we got home from the movies and dinner tonight). I thought his delivery was particularly flat. However the twitter feed, if you put in “Correspondents” as the search word were all gleeful that he was just awfully funny and he killed it. It’s the meme going on right now. I find it interesting to see that stuff form out there and how they all copy each other. It’s like a tide that becomes a tsunami and suddenly one persons little jewel of thought becomes a fact.
its no longer a conspiracy, but a fact that obama is not natural born citizen as his father was not an American citizen. Natural born citizen as defined by obama himself and the constitution is that both parents must be US citizen
I say bull to that. Go along to get along??? Time for someone to get mad and get even. I am so sick of the back slapping, reach across the aisle BS. This country is in a world of hurt and it’s time for someone to get pissed and show it.
I don’t know—I saw Donald looking at the Village Idiot’s feet...sizing them up for concrete shoes maybe?
Most of them are paid publicists masqeurading as ordinary folks.
Obama is a dope.
If he thinks he can win a “You’re fired!” contest with Donald Trump, he’s still smoking something.
Hey Zero, your wifes butt is so big when she backs up she beeps like a garbage truck. Now say something funny Barry!
I think that’s quite likely. It’s funny, one person will say something and then it’s retweeted and on and on. Or just repeated. It’s like a weird kind of echo chamber. But there seems to be a weight to it, so that in the end people don’t seem to understand where an idea or thought came from, they just know they heard it a lot, so a lot of people must think it.
With apologies to the FReeper I stole this from:
Our media is not independent. Our so-called media is an organization, dedicated to electing and advancing liberals.
Hey Zero, you want to get a big laugh? Show them the video of you throwing out the first pitch like a fourth grade girl. That will definitely get them laughing! Now, say something funny Barry!!
What an unfunny and lame correspondents’ dinner. Obama acted like a kid, flaunting a birth certificate over and over like he won the lottery. It’s only an issue because he wouldn’t release it for 3 years.
Michelle looked high, and 0 looked... hopeless, like he’s thrown in the towel. Obviously he enjoys slamming people sitting in front of him who can’t respond, whether it’s Trump, Paul Ryan, or the the Supreme Court.
Well, when I googled that I got all sorts of *interesting* things, but none of them made any sense... Not that I think we have an independent media, but I’m not sure I understand your post. I may be dumb, however.
Officially it was “JournoList”.
A distribution list of liberal journalists, with which they coordinated strategy to advance their message.
The Gerbil part was what I stole from our FReeper. :)
“Journolist” was embarrassing enough for the media left, it was immediately dismantled, many believe replaced immediately with a more effectively hidden replacement.
You can no doubt find more about Journo-List.
If Trump runs as a third-party candidate and gives us four more years of Zero, he's going to annoy me, too.
Just guessing here, but I imagine Trump won’t run as a third party candidate if we stop trying to drive him to do so...
Mr. Thin Skin hardly touched on himself, surprise!surprise! It was almost all Trump by both Obama and Seth Miller Appalling. Miller was bad enough, but he’s not POTUS.
I can’t remember another president doing that at the WH Correspondents (Whores) Dinner, attacking a political opponent who’s a private citizen, much less one who was sitting in the room with his wife. It’s the same thing he did to Paul Ryan. He is such an immature, petty little man. And he’s not at all funny. He should avoid those events, stay home with Michelle planting carrots or whatever.
OH, lol I remember Journolist. I thought there was something else. Yeah, I know, they are just another arm of the Marxist Party we call Democrats.
Low life sleazy grifter scum, that about sums up Barky’s good points.
No, that is not what I meant. I really don’t care for Trump. I am just saying that, for his own sake, he should have laughed instead of making them think that they were getting to him.
I don’t think Trump likes Barry at all. Barry was making fun of Trump. If you didn’t like someone, and they were making fun of you, would sit there and laugh for the camera?
Barry is a joke.
He doesn’t have times for distractions but he has time for this. And campaign cash grabs. And golfing.
I sure would not let them know that they were getting to m.
Pretty much exactly what I was thinking.
Enough about appearances and country club rules.
We’re in the weeds. Let’s not pretend otherwise please.
Laughing makes yourself the butt of the joke. Not laughing means you’re above these petty shots.
Trump played it just as he should have played it, and I’m sure it wasn’t a play, but his natural reaction.
Obama mocks Trump’s presidential ambitions.
And Obama is supported by many Freepers.
Trump is kicking Obama ass and will never run.
Zero sat there all evening grinning, knowing full well that the order he put out on Gaddafi had succeeded in murdering
G’s three grandchildren today.
Of course he got in about 60 seconds at the end...an afterthought...about supporting the troops and helping the people of Alabama...and oh, yeah, those white states down there.
You’d let yourself sit there and be the butt of jokes from a man you want to beat?
Who better to run America at this time , than guy that can come out of bankruptcy wealthier and stronger than when he went in?
Isn’t it kind of fascinating they didn’t go after Sarah Palin tonight? She has a new foil. I believe she was there as a guest of Greta ??
These immature jackasses always have to have one person to pick on and try to destroy. Say what you will about The Donald, he ain’t about to take it laying down. Can’t wait to see what he does next.
