Trump on receiving end at White House correspondents' dinner



Published: Sun, May 1, 2011 @ 12:04 a.m.

WASHINGTON (AP)

President Barack Obama exacted his revenge Saturday after weeks of attacks from his would-be Republican challenger Donald Trump, joking that the billionaire businessman could bring change to the White House, transforming it from a stately mansion into a tacky casino with a whirlpool in the garden.

With Trump in attendance, Obama used the White House Correspondents' Association annual dinner to mock the reality TV star's presidential ambitions.

The president said Trump 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.

Mr Trump has Obama (& the rest of the candidates) very worried. I love the guy and his political positions; he is EXACTLY what America needs to regain its strength.

Trump is what we need to bring attention to just what we have in President Obama. The media and political insiders have been relentless in attacking Trump. The Correspondent dinner SNL speaker was crude in his comments about Trump but thankfully gave a break to Sarah Pallin. It is not possible to be a candidate with the media in the other camp and I imagine Trump is quickly figuring it out. He is good for the discussion that is needed.

Must have been nice for President Obama to " to make fun" of someone and they couldn't respond.

Trump. You've got to be kidding me. And this isn't about party politics. It's about stupidity. I thought it couldn't get worse than Palin. I was mistaken. Name an intelligent, qualified, GOP candidate, please. Here's a tip. Avoid reality tv stars and wannabees.

Trump couldn't respond? He's been running his mouth plenty. Time for him to sack up and take it for a change.

Obama gets pretty brave when he is surrounded by a room full of supporters. I found his "ambush" behavior to be classless and so "unpresidential". He did the same thing with Cong. Paul Ryan; it just shows what a coward he really is.

The President was great at the dinner. He put Trump in the corner with a dunce cap where is belongs. I'm a rabid progressive to be sure, but I've listened to two different conservative talk shows in the last few days where they've pu,mmeled Trump as a baffoon who does not speak for them either.

One guy was outraged at Trump's suggestion that he, as President, would tell OPEC at what price he'd buy oil and he'd set the price of gas at the pump. Do conservative REALLY want the President, be it Obama, Trump or any future President, to so control the economy and pricing that the price is set in big government Washington DC? Think about it.

BuckeyeMom......Here is a video of Obama answering questions from republicans at their conference for the House of Representatives. At this venue he had no supporters, only republicans.

You call Obama a coward? When did you ever see a republican directly answer a question from someone they disagree with?

The sound is bad the first two minutes then it fixes itself. Enjoy,

paul.....I guess you don't know what everyone else does. When Illinois Senators vote on a bill they vote "present" when they feel the bill still needs work. All of Illinois Senators do this.

You're welcome.

Mr. Trump for President? I don't think so. I believe he is talking just to try and shake things up. So far that is exactly what he is doing. People are taking notice.

Donald Trump is a very shrewd businessman. He has made a ton of money being that way and is a very rich person. He is no dummy. I, however, do not see him as Presidential material, so I will keep looking. My mind may change in the future, but I encourage others to do likewise. Afterall, shopping around for the best deal is the American way!
