Over 2,500 politicians, journalists and celebrities, including Hip-Hop mogul Russell Simmons and will.I.am, attended the annual dinner, which honors excellence in journalism.
President Obama and Saturday Night Live comedian Seth Meyers centered the majority of their jokes on Donald Trump, who had been questioning if the President was born in Hawaii.
President Obama began his speech by immediately addressing the "birthers" who claimed he wasn't born in Hawaii.
He then set his sites on Donald Trump, who was booed as he arrived at the dinner.
"Donald Trump is here. I know he's taken some flack recently, but no one is more ready to put the birther issue to rest than the Donald," President Obama said. "So he can focus real issues at hand facing America, like ‘Did we really land on the moon?’ ‘What really happened in Roswell?’ And, ‘Where are Biggie and Tupac?’”
The rap name checking didn't stop there. President Obama also made fun of Donald Trump's aspirations to run for the oval office.
"We all know about your credentials, and your breadth of experience," President Obama said. "For example, on a recent episode of Celebrity Apprentice, at the steakhouse, the men’s cooking team did not impress the men from Omaha Steaks. There was lots of blame to go around, but you, Mr. Trump, recognized that the real problem was a lack of leadership. Ultimately, you didn’t blame [rapper] Lil Jon or [singer] Meatloaf, you fired Gary Busey. These are the kinds of decisions that keep me up at night. Well handled, sir! Well handled."
Donald Trump claimed he didn't think President Obama would address him during the White House Correspondence Dinner and called the ribbing "inappropriate."
"I had no idea it would be to that extent, where you know, it was just joke after joke after joke," Donald Trump said on Fox and Friends earlier this morning (May 1st). "It was almost like, is there anyone else they could talk about?"
