Skip to comments.Trump says jokes about him by Obama, Meyers were 'inappropriate'

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.
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 wish hed delay announcing and keep attacking Obama.<<
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.
>>A president who cant handle criticism, and resorts to ridicule of those who oppose him.<<
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.
Certainly bizarre to say the least
Who considers commie boy president?
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.
Where’s Oprah whining about r-e-s-p-e-c-t?
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.
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.
And public humlitiation alone is too small of a punishment for this turd.
Popcorn? Maybe this iceflow will be broken by Mr.Trump,...again and on a grander scale.
January 21, 2013;
Trump smiles, and say simply: “YOU’RE FIRED”.
