Comedians performing at the White House Correspondents Dinner are faced with a difficult task of balancing the collection of audience members to roast, but SNL's Seth Meyers had plenty of material for Donald Trump.
This year's White House Correspondents' Dinner featured Saturday Night Live's head writer, Seth Meyers. Mr. Meyers took the opportunity to not only roast real estate baron and potential Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump but to carve him up as well.
"Donald Trump said that he was running for president as a Republican. Which is surprising since I just assumed he was running as a joke," Meyers said.
The audience erupted in howls of laughter, but the CSPAN television cameras pointed on Mr. Trump captured a very still and serious man who did not betray a hint of being amused.
"Donald Trump often appears on Fox which is ironic, because a fox often appears on Donald Trump's head," Meyers continued.
"Donald Trump owns the Miss America Pageant, which is great for Republicans because it streamlines their search for a vice presidential candidate," Meyers said.
Again, camera stayed on Trump for a visible reaction, and nothing of him moved.
"Donald Trump said recently that he has a great relationship with the blacks, but unless the blacks are a family of white people I'll bet he's mistaken," Meyers continued.
Meyers then went on to poke fun at Trump's New York accent, joking that it would be fun to have Trump as press secretary.
Meyers concluded that the Republicans have not demonstrated a strong list of candidates, and when he finished his commentary he was greeted with raging applause.
