Goebbels or Stalin taught the obamedia?
Pray for America
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.
Wow thanks for that link. I bet 0 is just laughing his fan-tanny off tonight? I saw photos of Meshell, she looked drunk and her hair was slightly messy.
looking forward to the FReeper AAR.
so much fun to be there a couple years ago.

Thank you VERY much !
Yep, the ball is in Trumps court and he can play it any way he likes.
If Donald didn’t ever seriously consider runnimg, this is more likely going to make him enter the campaign after tonight’s disgusting attack from O. Donald is going to be a mushroom cloud laying (as Don would say)Motherf$#%
Not surprising. Remember .. when you see the word ‘progress,’ you can almost bet it’s a Soros puppet/Obama operative group of oBots.

Network For Progress, a new Yes We Can Movement-building grassroots organization for supporters of President Obamas vision of Hope, Change and Progress, called today for the Washington Post to rescind its invitation for Donald Trump to attend Saturdays White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington as their special guest.
This is how our alleged professional media behave. Biased and choosing sides much ??
Donald Trump Booed at White House Correspondents Dinner
The Wrap announced that the Donald was booed tonight:
Trump arrived on the red carpet at Washingtons 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 wasnt because they wanted to hear Trump talk more.)
Some of us old time Freepers have some really fond memories of freeping the Correspondence Dinner.
For sure, Obama has better speech writers and a better ability to poke fun at himself.
She fooled me!
He wants to see the turd he going to beat by 20 points
Obi gets this right. The libs have orgasms wishing for Trump to be Obi’s opponent.
"Years of hard-hitting questions and she's going to be remembered for the one that could've doubled as a category on The Family Feud."
That was funny.
Trump was soundly trumped. He deserved it for his own chuzpah.
Anyone who believes that Donald will be elected POTUS by RINOs and Independents is even nuttier than me.
If it hasn’t crossed your TV yet, you should know that dims are 100 percent in support of Trump running.
Draw your own conclusion.
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.
So you don’t like Trump. Big whoop.
Moochie looked like some linebacker sized drag queen>>>>>>
When does she ever not look that? She looks like an R Crumb comic book character whose name I won’t mention
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?
