Here's the Seth Meyers bit. Donald Trump, who was in the audience, was so not amused, but Meyers was relentless. Hilarious. (And here's the Obama speech, which was also funny).
Now we know why President Barack Obama released his long-form birth certificate this week: so he'd have fresh material for the White House Correspondents Dinner. Obama had some really funny stuff on the brouhaha over his birth certificate and got some good slams in on his vocal critic Donald Trump, who was in the audience. SNL's Seth Meyers was also hilarious and went after Trump like crazy. That video is a must see.

Last night was the annual White House Correspondents Dinner and it turns out even Barack Obama is funnier than Jay Leno.
Leno made easy, predictable jokes about John McCain being old, Toyotas being unsafe and Joe Biden being a bit wacky. Obama, who spoke just before Leno, poked a little fun at the late night talk show host, and also at GOP Chairman Michael Steele and Sarah Palin. His material was better and so was his delivery. If you'd like to see for yourself, check out the video below.

I'm getting sleepy just thinking about this.
Jay Leno is headlining this year's White House Correspondents Dinner, where he will efficiently bore (and most importantly, not offend) the 2,600 politicians and celebrities gathered for the annual Nerd Prom.
What's most obvious about this hosting choice is that the White House is playing it S-A-F-E this year. Unlike past hosts Wanda Sykes and Stephen Colbert, Leno is unlikely to cause so much as a ripple with his predictable style of comedy (check out Colbert's infamous 2006 hosting job here). Maybe he'll do a special edition of "Headlines" or "Jay Walking." Yay.
Festivities will air on MSNBC this Saturday night at 9pm.
The dinner raises scholarship money for budding journalists.
