Barack Obama Takes Aim at Donald Trump

He's been firing jabs ever since showing interest in a possible presidential run, but Donald Trump found himself on the receiving end at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington, D.C. on Saturday night (April 30).

The United States Commander-In-Chief Barack Obama offered up numerous laugh-inducing moments throughout the evening, at one point saying that - with the birth certificate debate behind him - Trump can "finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter.…like where are Biggie and Tupac."

President Obama also mockingly said that he's sure that Trump would "bring change to the White House," at the same time bringing up a picture of a made-over White House adorned with casino-esque neon lights.

Chiming in on the mockery, comedic entertainer Seth Meyers continued the roasting by saying, "Donald Trump has been saying that he will run for president as a Republican, which is surprising because I just assumed he was running as a joke."

The following morning, Trump took to FOX News to discuss the Correspondents Dinner happenings, during which time he was asked, "Were you upset about those remarks or were you having a good time.... it was hard to tell?"

To this, the real estate mogul replied, "Well, I really understood what I was getting into. I didn't know that I would be virtually the sole focus. I guess when you're leading in most of the polls that's what happens."
