Open thread: Obama versus Trump at White House Correspondents’ Dinner

posted at 6:30 pm on April 30, 2011 by Allahpundit

C-SPAN’s coverage starts at 6:45 ET (livestreaming online right here) with a view of the red carpet as celebrities and “celebrities” make their way in. Any reason to spend hours watching reporters congratulate themselves on being important, punctuated by Obama goofing on his political enemies and then Seth Meyers goofing on Obama’s political enemies?

Yep, there is this year.

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is this Saturday, and, as usual, media organizations (including our own) have been scrambling to land celebrity guests to pack their ballroom tables. And, as usual, the names run the gamut of glamorous to titillating. But in the run-up to what’s been dubbed “Nerd Prom,” one invitation has stood out: the Washington Post is slated to bring Donald Trump, birther presidential candidate and reality TV star…

We did not find too many people at the Post willing to talk about the Trump invite… But a newsroom employee who asked to remain anonymous [said]: “It’s embarrassing but so is the entire affair.” Another Post source defended the invite–to a point. “I understand where the question comes from, but the guy is at the top of the polls. He’s No. 1,” the source said. “Look, the guy wants to play in the deep end of the pool, so fine, let him.” The source also pointed out that the Post extended its WHCD invitation when Trump’s birther candidacy was considered a publicity stunt instead of credible. “Imagine if the Post decided, ‘You’re not invited.’ Then you would be doing a different story.”…

Trump’s harshest critic at the Post so far has been conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer, who called Trump a “provocateur and clown” who “can only hurt the [Republican] party” with his questions about Obama’s birthplace. We asked him whether he shared Klein’s embarrassment at being affiliated with him through the WHCD. “He’s a spectacle,” he said. “If I took the White House Correspondent’s Dinner any more seriously than the Trump candidacy than it would bother me. But I don’t. Like Trump, it’s a spectacle.”

Bristol Palin will be there too — and so might Sarah, who dropped by the WHCD brunch this morning in D.C. I can’t find confirmation online that she’ll be at tonight’s dinner, but if she’s decided at the last minute that she wants to go, rest assured that she’ll get in. Obama, Trump, and Palin, all in the same room? What could go wrong?

Comment below if you’re watching, which, let’s face it, most of us will be. Exit question: Trump’s going to end up heckling The One, isn’t he?

Update: Alas, Palin won’t be there after all. According to Ian Lazaran of Conservatives4Palin, she’s giving a speech in Bethesda tonight.

Have you guys seen the Comedy Central roast of Trump several weeks ago? I would link it but the language is extreme and filthy. The jokes made about him tonight are mild compared to that roast. They even mocked his genitals! He sat there with the same look as tonight so I think you’re misreading that he’s mad. He loves the attention and knew full well the filth that would be said about him by Comedy Central and he knew he would be the butt of jokes tonight. If you can stand VERY vulgar language, google the Comedy Central roast to see what I mean.

This I hope gives others the appreciation on why the GOP house leadership are the sheep they are. On why people like mit thides under their desk for 2 1/2 years Adn Why Palin supporters don’t care about her negatives. We know come election time all the gop candidates will have massiv enegatives so we would rathe rhave a conservative as the nominee than a RINO. They will both be made to look like Mr Hyde so what’s the difference. We know Palin’s bottom level of support. We hav eno idea how far Mitt, huck, trump etc can fall as they are attacked.

Okay, well, how does Trump get even?

If he were really really smart he would pick another candidate to back. Because he is not going to win. If he started this to open the way for Hillary, after tonight, it’s personal.

Just go after Obama.

It doesn’t matter who wins as long as it is not Obama. Obama is hateful and evil.

I’ve seen two very different possiblities re: Trump and his promise that people would be surprised by what he announces. (And I don’t think saying “I’m running” or “I’m not running” would be a surprise).

1. That he plans to run… as a Democrat and primary Obama.
2. That he won’t run… but is endorsing Palin.

I’ve seen good cases made for and against each option.

It’ll be interesting at least.

1. The Ryan jokes fell flat and even got booed.

2. The Ryan road map was applauded by Democrats attending the Aspen Ideas Festival last July, including Niall Ferguson, Mort Zuckerman and Barbra Streisand. The economy has only gotten worse.

It was pretty recent. They mocked him running for President, mocks his appearance so much I was uncomfortable, sex jokes about his disappointed wife and shriveled old genitals, portrayed him as a rich brat who got everything from his daddy etc. They do that to everyone they roast so he knew what he was in for. He had the same expression as tonight too.

Trump could have done himself a favor by laughing along with some of the jokes tonight, Obama took a few swipes at Trump and Seth Meyers blasted him. Trump seemed bothered by the jokes (especially the ones by Seth Meyers). Here’s Obama’s clip on Trump. I’ll have Seth Meyer’s video later hopefully

No thanks, buddy. I swam that swamp with sharks once already.

OmahaConservative on April 30, 2011 at 11:23 PM

This is how the left attacks….

They have been doing it to Palin for years.

They show no mercy, and attack in the most despicable ways.

I can’t wait for Palin’s response to this attack on Trump.

Ya all know she will :)

idesign on April 30, 2011 at 11:12 PM

The attacks on Palin and her family has been the most vicious ever.
And she doesn’t have the connections and resources Trump has.

O/T

I think Mitt picked the wrong night to say he was going to “hang” the POTUS. Just what we need a gop nominee making hanging jokes about the 1st black president. where do these people come from? Ar ethey that clueless?

Trump is in something of a spot if he fires back because it will be portrayed as sour grapes and ungracious.

It would be nice if he had some allies who could do it for him, but the GOP isn’t going to. They would rather be on Obama’s team.

As strange as it seems, Roasts are done to honor someone, not make them a pariah in the public eye. What was done to Trump was an attempt to dismiss him as anyone of significance.

karlant on April 30, 2011 at 11:26 PM

The forests will sing, the oceans will cry
The battle will soar through every sky
Trump will put Obama to flame
And throw down on him the lightning and rain
The smirking tyrant he will assail
His battle call will wail
Till the day Obama views the Mussolini Tree
And hangs from it the same as he

HalJordan on April 30, 2011 at 11:32 PM

I’m not a Trump fan and I don’t want him to be President, but that was the most appalling display of hatred by Obama & the SNL guy that I’ve ever seen. I hope Trump destroys them all and there’s a good chance he will find away to take them down for good. I am devastated that an American President has stooped this low.
