CSPAN ^ | 4-30-11

Posted on 04/30/2011 5:24:12 PM PDT by STARWISE

Obama and Seth Meyers headline

Politics and Hollywood collide again at tonight's annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner. The event has evolved into a star-studded affair as celebrities descend upon Washington, joining journalists and President Obama.

This year's comedian headliner, Saturday Night Live's Seth Meyers, is charged with the task of poking fun at the President and Washington politics.

Each year, the President uses the occasion to show a more humorous side as well, making fun of himself and the people who cover him.

The purpose of the annual dinner is “to raise money for WHCA scholarships and honor the professional recipients of the WHCA's journalism awards," according to the White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) website.

C‑SPAN begins tonight’s live coverage with the red carpet arrivals at 6:45pm EST. See complete coverage at C‑SPAN's White House Correspondents' Dinner webpage.

LIVE COVERAGE ONLINE NOW (mingling now)

Full program expected to start at approximately 9:45pm ET

Boy .. the EVENT IS REPLAYING NOW!

http://www.c-span.org/WHCD/

The opening is NUTZ — I had missed it. Images of his birth cert, interspersed with sports shots, the flag, eagle !!!???

Sick!

Then the jungle movie .. the animal baby and all the
animals bowing down? This is more than malignant narcissism .. it’s certifiable ... perverse delusions
of grandeur.

Slamming Matt Damon ?? Mean and nasty ‘cause Damon said he was disappointed in him. He’s a small, vicious twirp.

His slams were all scorched earth tactics .. Campaign 2012 for certain. This election WILL be the bloodiest.

Glad it did get in Breaking .. thanks.

Just listen to the ‘O’ — all mean, nasty digs .. very few laughs at himself, which most presidents did up grandly
and very magnanimously. Now .. listen to the Trump
stabs.

Yup .. that’s all he did .. and everyone who dares to utter the slightest objection to him or his policies, or may run for the office. That’s his core nature .. power hungry, mean and vindictive. There’s no depths to which he and his comrades won’t sink. Blood war coming.

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0411/54012.html

*snip*

Michele Bachmann is here. She is considering running for president. Which is weird, because I hear she was born in Canada. Yes, Michele, this is how it starts.”

“Jon Huntsman is with us. There’s something you might now know about Jon. He didn’t learn to speak Chinese to go there. Oh no. He learned English to come here.”

“There’s a vicious rumor floating around that I think could really hurt Mitt Romney. I heard he passed universal health care when he was governor of Massachusetts. Someone should really get to the bottom of that.”

Tim Pawlenty’s real name? According to President Obama, it’s Hosni, as in ousted Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak. “That’s unfortunate,” the president deadpanned.

As for Trump, the president said his decision to release his original, long-form birth certificate this week must have been a big relief for the New York real estate mogul. “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?”

~~~~~~~~~

Not ONE reference to Sarah Palin. Unless there was innuendo that someone may recall ?

O’Reilly stated one night this past week that Trump had told him he had $7 Billion net worth. That should be enough to investigate the Hell out of Obama and his minions.

I watched a rerun of the dinner on CSPAN and just saw the Zero’s attempts at humor, followed by this Seth guy (who I’ve never heard of previously) who also bombed at getting any big laughs.

The camera did show the back of Juan William’s head once. I suppose that Wendell Goler (FNC, and black) was also there, since he took Major Garrett’s place in the WH Press Corps as a major suck-up to Obama.

Seth’s only humorous joke was about Brian Williams from NBC; rushing back from the Royal Wedding coverage to appear in the South after the tornadoes (like Shep Smith and Geraldo did after Katrina).

Trump NEVER cracked a smile, as the two idiots at the podium kept attacking him with darts instead of humor. The Donald WILL find a way to get revenge! I’m looking forward to what will happen.

Trump is serious, and sickened, regarding our sad state of the union. As are many of us. The clown in chief gets it, alright. He knew he would be a one term TOTUS. Which is precisely why he is doing all the damage he can, in one term.

Just pray we can hold this marxist anchor baby at bay, til then.

Also pray, our tea party members in Congress, will have the courage to call for an amendment to our Constitution. One which will prevent another anchor baby, with loyalties beyond our borders, from ever again becoming President. Where all future President’s must be born of two citizen parents, as our founders intended.

Note to Trump, if you intend to run, make this fix, a part of your agenda.

Trump is planning his revenge. Even if he does not wind up being a candidate, I am sure he will do all he can to help to defeat this fraud. While Trump is not a true conervative, he is still a patriot ....... and he will fearlessly speak out when he feels he must. Bravo Trump!

By the way did you read the comments at politico? I sure notice more unhappy campers than happy these days. He got heckled in New York this week at a fundraiser and those protesters in Frisco. I am hoping he doesn’t win re-election I so worry he will.

“Tonight was a huge win for Trump. Huge.”

Yep, the ball is in Trump’s court and he can play it any way he likes. I just hope he doesn’t overshoot.

Obama made Trump bigger than life tonight. He also gave literal meaning to the “bully pulpit”. Trump is a boaster, but Obama BULLIED Trump, and nobody likes a bully. The disdain on Trump’s face tonight reflected the disdain many Americans have for the childish arrogance of this administration.

And then, as a coup de grace, Obama showed a screen with his vision of how Trump could bring change to the White House. “Trump” was prominently displayed in glittery letters and girls could be seen with cocktails on a Jacuzzi-augmented front lawn.

Trump chuckled at some of the earlier jokes, but was clearly less amused as comedian Seth Meyers picked up where Obama left off.

“Donald Trump often talks about running as a Republican, which is surprising,” said the Saturday Night Live actor, entrusted with providing some of the comedy for the evening. “I just assumed he was running as a joke.”

Trump stared icily at Meyers as he continued to criticize the real estate tycoon.

At least Dems don’t mind bringing in comedians to go after conservatives and Republicans. Did W ever have anyone go after the dems or the liberals? He even had Colbert come in and humiliate him right to his face. I hope whoever the next GOP President is makes sure that the “talent” at their 1st WHCD goes after the dems and the liberals just as hard.

Not surprising. Remember .. when you see the word ‘progress,’ you can almost bet it’s a Soros puppet/Obama operative group of oBots.

April 28, 2011

*snip*

Network For Progress, a new “Yes We Can” Movement-building grassroots organization for supporters of President Obama’s vision of Hope, Change and Progress, called today for the Washington Post to rescind its invitation for Donald Trump to attend Saturday’s White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington as their special guest.

Donald Trump Booed at White House Correspondents’ Dinner
###

The Wrap announced that the Donald was booed tonight:

Trump arrived on the red carpet at Washington’s Hilton Hotel with his wife, Melania, shortly at 7:00 p.m. (ET).

After giving a brief interview with a group of several of media outlets, Trump — who was invited to the event as a guest of the Washington Post — walked away to a chorus of audible boos from the media members on the press line. (And it wasn’t because they wanted to hear Trump talk more.)

Some of us old time Freepers have some really fond memories of “freeping” the Correspondence Dinner.


I remember my Dad and Mom flinching when Bush spoke. As life-long Republicans they were horrified at the damage he would do. Which came to pass.

For sure, Obama has better speech writers and a better ability to poke fun at himself.

If the GOP was smart, it would hold a counter-event/dinner on the exact SAME night someplace else - maybe in a different city. You could create a charity their own journalism scholarships at reliably conservative universities like Liberty or Hillsdale. And/or, you could create a troop support charity of some kind. But, to participate in this annual in-kind contribution to the DNC, is RIDICULOUS

Agree & I'll betcha Trump won't go next yr. It is so depressing to see what trash this nation has become - pure trash was there in full form.

If you count this as a “win” for Trumfpf, then you must count tornadoes in Alabama a “win”.

Donald baby did not even issue a press statement of sympathy.

How much of his much-proclaimed wealth has he given to the tornado victims? A nickel?

Why would you think Trump would issue “a statement” about the storm tragedy in the South - he’s not a politician or officially a candidate yet. That you could even use the word “win” in the same sentence as the tornado tragedy says all one needs to know about you, troll.

Even if Trump was just shilling for someone maybe he'll change his mind and kick zer0's @ss just to get even.

It may not be good for the Republic but it sounds like something he'd do.
