Trump says jokes about him by Obama, Meyers were 'inappropriate'
The Hill ^ | 05/01/11 | Daniel Strauss

Posted on 05/01/2011 5:43:59 PM PDT by ColdOne

Real estate mogul Donald Trump called jokes made about him at the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner "inappropriate in certain respects."

Speaking on Fox & Friends on the Sunday morning after the dinner, Trump responded to jokes directed at him from President Obama and comedian Seth Meyers.

"Well, I really understood what I was getting into — I didn't know that I'd be virtually the sole focus," Trump said. "I guess when you're leading in the polls that tends to happen. But I was certainly in a certain way having a good time listening."

While a fair amount of Obama's repertoire was directed at Trump, as was Meyers', there were plenty of other Republicans and Democrats who got teased. Obama also had some zingers for the rest of the likely Republican presidential field, but a lot of his jokes were directed at Trump, who is considering running for president in 2012.

Were there any jokes about Obama? I mean it’s not like joke writers would be lacking for material.

Good job, Donald.

I don’t think you’re a conservative or presidential material yet, but you know you’re doing something right when you get so deeply embedded in Obammie the Commie’s thin skin that he employs the Alinsky method of ridicule.

The very fact that Zero even mention The Donald is a sign of weakness.

Barry's Macaca moment is coming, and it will be very, very public.

I wish he’d delay announcing and keep attacking Obama.

Obama and his DNC/MSM machine have little energy left to pursue Palin, Bachmann and West as long as Trump’s their target.

A president who can’t handle criticism, and resorts to ridicule of those who oppose him.

Kindergarten playground tactics.

Trump shouldn’t have given them the satisfaction of his attendance to have to sit through that crap.
And I would say calling them “jokes” is a stretch.

I think that is his strategy until The Celebrity Apprentice is the #1 show on all networks and he sells at least 25% of his Vegas Albatross Condo space.

Traditionally, the sitting President (it hurts to capitalize that one) makes fun of HIMSELF, with very few references to his detractors.

This jerkwad who scammed his way into our WH can’t even do THAT right.

No it won't. Barry could do a Dean Scream during a live broadcast of a SOTU speech, and the media would instantly put to work burying it. It would not get any replay and would be spun to make it the Republican's fault.

Of course our Republican leadership would then go into overdrive apologizing for anything they might have done to upset Barry.

Trump is running because of this slight..

Trump has an ego bigger than Odumbo’s and won;t forget this. Even if he is a Dem “trojan horse’, it wasn;t in the script to be treated like that. Just by observing his face in the crowd during the dinner most probably says he ain;t on the take.

He may not host, but I'll darn near guarantee he'll be making an appearance on SNL next year.

And the View...and Letterman.....perhaps he'll even show up and dance with Ellen Degenerate.

You can always gauge the level of fear in a liberal by the level of their viciousness. I must say though that Trump hasn’t reached the level of being called Hitler yet, although I’m sure that will come soon enough being that he’s already been tagged the “R” word. I truly hope to God he runs just to tear Mr. Soetoro a new yayhole in a debate, and knowing Trump he definately will after this. Mr. Soetoro: You sir have just made a huge tatical error.

for humor to work it has to be based on truth

“joking” that trump is ready to get back what is important: moon-landing conspiracy, area 51, etc was just mean spirited and has no truth and therefore no humor in it

Obama did make fun of Bachmann and Pawlenty too....all of his jokes were pretty lame. He needs to fire the gag writer.

He said Bachmann was born in Canada and that Pawlenty's middle name is Hosni.

What a hoot. Leno should worry about Obama coming after his job once he leaves the White House.

Was there a single joke about Obama? Every other president ive looked at including Clinton has held theirself up for ridicule in good fun. But not this ba$tard,,, for him humor is only funny if it is an attempt to ridicule others.

He’s a national embarrassment. This kind of thing is why he wasn’t invited to the royal wedding. Is there a single respectable world leader who doesn’t think he’s a joke?

--------------------------

I fully agree!

I AGREE WITH THAT

In the 2008 election Hillary didn't have what it takes to challenge Obama. On the Left, the fear of the old and worn 'racism' charge trumps all.

Now the increasing cost of food and fuel will energize the Tea Party and other Americans.

Bernanke said 2011 growth has slowed to less than a 2 percent in the first three months of this year. The Fed chairman said: ''most of the factors that account for the slower growth in the first quarter appear to us to be transitory.''

Right Mr. Chairman, 'transitory' in the same way the current administration is 'transitory'. The first won't end until the other ends. And I guess if we enter the worldwide socialism club, we'll never have to worry about growth again.

All I know is that if they tell us we had 1.8% growth, it really means we had no growth or negative growth.

The Fed chairman expressed some hope that the recent warning about danger to our credit rating would inspire Washington to action. Never let it be forgotten that the Administration tried to suppress that report, and never forget that absolutely none of our current problems are due to 'inaction' from Washington.

Trillions of dollars worth of unsustainable debt is signaling that more QE is inevitable regardless of the jawboning rhetoric of Ben Bernanke who up until last week refused to admit that inflation even existed. When will Bernanke admit the Fed policy is a total failure?

For the guy who cranks out new dollars on the Treasury's printing press, he spends a lot of time insisting the value of the dollar is someone else's responsibility. Can you say 'Kabuki theater?'

So the Fed's inaugural 'meet the press' moment was in fact preparing the ground for the start of QE3. Bernanke has his 'tools' you know.

It's all fiat money now, meaning that it has value only because the Fed says it does! So we have an unstable economy wobbling atop unsound money. Money that the government takes from taxpayers, or borrows with no intention of paying it back, or prints without end. The Fed will have printed about $1.8 trillion from the end of 2008 to the end of June, 2011 - partly to finance staggering federal government deficits of nearly $4.5 trillion over the three years.

So the Fed's actions are undermining the dollar precisely because that's what the White House wants

Countdown until Obama leaves Office: 629 days as of May 1, 2011.

obama
It's the gas and groceries stupid! - Bernanke says the labor market in 'a very deep black hole'

------------------------------

Welcome to the 1970s: low growth, high inflation. And the Keynesians argued this can't happen.

The whole QE2 pump-priming hasn't stimulated economic growth, but has stimulated inflation.

It's all virtual money now!

Hope and Change.... Tragic.

He’s a typical lib, they rarely if ever show any modesty. They say Trump has a huge ego? As compared to whom? Al Gore? John “Reporting for duty” Kerry? Ron Kuby? Bill Clinton? The level of arrogance and self importance of those 4 are what shrinks like to tag as “sociopathic” which is why they are liberals because they love the God-like feelings of power by increasing government as a way to rule the people llike the sociopathic freaks they are. How many of them have ever appeared on shows like Howard Stern to make fun of themselves like Trump? Zero. For them it’s only pre-scripted David Letterman/Oprah schmooze fests.
