Seth Meyers cracks up the White House Correspondents' Dinner

In a tradition that stretches back to when W.C. Fields roasted FDR (“He’s not running for president, he’s rolling!”), Seth Meyers took the podium at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner to make some light-hearted fun of the press, President Obama, and the event’s broadcaster, C-SPAN. As you can see below, the SNL head writer and Weekend Update anchor got big laughs, especially during his evisceration of a certain billionaire-cum-toupée aficionado. During his remarks, President Obama got in a few digs at Trump himself, showing a video that made light of the recent birth certificate silliness, as well as sarcastically praising Trump’s credentials. In reference to Trump firing Gary Busey on The Celebrity Apprentice: “These are the kinds of decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir. Well handled.”

How do you think Meyers did? Any favorite jokes?
