2012 Preview?: The annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner is always good for a few laughs. Sometimes the jokes are priceless. Sometimes, it’s the video. We got a little bit of both as President Barack Obama stood behind the microphone with Donald Trump out in the crowd. Of course, timing was everything in this. And I don’t just mean the president’s timing with his jokes. We had the whole birther debate this week seemingly debunked (for good?) as the president released the long-form version of his birth certificate showing once again he was born in Hawaii. Trump said he was “proud” that he was the one to force the president to release it.
Here’s the video of the dinner with the prez behind the mic. Watch the Donald’s reactions and tell me if you think he was having fun. I didn’t see many smiles.
