APPARENTLY, DONALD TRUMP was upset after getting skewered by Seth Meyers (and President Obama) at the White House correspondents dinner over the weekend.
“Seth Meyers has no talent,” Trump said Sunday, according to the New York Times. “He fell totally flat. In fact, I thought Seth’s delivery was so bad that he hurt himself.”
During Meyers' nearly 20 minute presentation, he mocked Trump repeatedly.
"Donald Trump has said he's running for president as a Republican," he said, "which is surprising because I thought he was running as a joke."
The president also mocked the reality TV star, casino mogul and potential presidential candidate. Obama referred to Trump firing Gary Busey from his reality show, opting not to send home Meatloaf instead.
"These are the types of decisions that would keep me up at night," Obama said. "Well handled, sir."
Trump, of course, has been the public face of the "birther" controversy, with some people alleging that Barack Obama was not born in the United States America. Obama revealed his long-form birth certificate last week and Trump took credit for the president's actions.
And rumors of Trump running for president have been swirling for weeks. The Donald has not said whether he will run or not.
Are the media being Charlie Sheen-ed, conned into giving coverage to Trump? Are they only supporting his TV show by constantly talking about him?
Should the media cut back their coverage of Trump until he actually says that he is or is not running for president? Or is this just too easy to have fun with?
