Obama was where he wanted to be: with Donald in the audience, and with the microphone in his own hand.
Obama said Trump could now focus on the serious issues after performing the valuable public service of nailing down the fact that Obama was born in Hawaii, from whether the moon landing actually happened to "where are Biggie and Tupac?"
The joke barrage continued, with Donald clearly getting less amused.Â Regarding Trump's decision to fire actor Busey instead of rock singer Meat Loaf from his TV show earlier this month, Obama quipped: "These are the types of decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir." Ha ha ha!!
Obama thenÂ 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.Â
When Obama yielded the mic to comedian Seth Myers, the jokes at Trump's expense got a little more pointed, and were clearly p*****g off the Donald. He seemed especially annoyed at this one: ""Donald Trump often talks about running as a Republican, which is surprising. I just assumed he was running as a joke."Â Ouch. Donald was stone faced on that one.
Donald, just a reminder. When you get elected President, you are no longer the guy who gets to be in Attack mode 24/7. You don't get to badger opponents to produce information then refuse to look at the information. Still want the job? No, of course you don't want the job. You never did.
