He’s a real estate mogul, a reality show pioneer and now a political phenom on his way to becoming the Republican presidential nominee.
And that success sets Donald Trump up for a different role on Saturday night: punch line.
As President Barack Obama polishes his annual — and final — tart-tongued stand-up riff for the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, Washington is salivating at the prospect of a sequel to his blistering evisceration of Trump in 2011. The President used that speech to publicly ridicule Trump — who was in the audience — for the billionaire’s claims that Obama was not a natural born American and was therefore disqualified from being President.
“Obviously, we all know about your credentials and breadth of experience,” Obama said, slamming Trump for his supposed displays of leadership on “Celebrity Apprentice.”
“These are the kind of decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled sir, well handled,” Obama said sarcastically.
