Revenge of the Bird? Video and Question for a Sunday

In April of 2011, during the White House Correspondents' Dinner, President Barack Obama roasted Donald Trump in a manner the like of which this country had never seen before.

In a few short minutes Obama didn't merely destroy Trump, he virtually obliterated Trump.

In the most passive aggressive style anyone can remember coming from a president, Obama unceremoniously mockedd Donald Trump over birth certificate conspiracy, Celebrity Apprentice & his presidential ambitions.

He did this before an eager and giddy audience full of journalism luminaries and executives who approved of the skewering of Trump with loud and raucous laughter and thunderous applause.

All while Trump was present and unable to respond while his goose was being cooked right before his eyes, in his face, as it were...

You can see by Trump's facial expression and body language that there was nothing to do but stick a fork in him,  because he was, most assuredly, done.

In my view, this single occasion can go a long way toward explaining Trump's deep and  abiding dislike and disdain of the press and his obssession with the repeal of Obamacare.

So here's the question:

Little pricks like him always find a reason to hold a grudge. Puff up. Kick their cat and slam doors.

That dinner is why he's President

What's amazing about that roast is how right Obama was about Trump. That's what he's like as President.

That's ONE of Obama's finest hours!  And, I'm still amazed how he was so welcomingly gracious to Trump at the white house that day - after years of Trump dogging him about his birthplace.   The only thing Obama knew for certain was...Trump's true colors would come out for the world to see - the Presidency does that!
