Obama Slams Trump, Bachmann, Damon


Few people were off limits when President Obama took to the stage Saturday night at the White House Correspondent's dinner, laying into everyone from Donald Trump to Matt Damon after greeting the crowd with a well received, "Mahalo."

Obama told the crowd he was going to show further proof he was born in Hawaii by showing footage from his actual birth. He then cued up a clip from The Lion King, assuring attendees from Fox News it was "a joke," but if they wanted to further investigate, Disney has the full version.

He skewered Trump for leading the birther charge, saying: "Now, I know that he's taken some flak lately, but no one is happier, no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than the Donald. And that's because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter -- like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?"

Obama also took on Michelle Bachmann ("born in Canada," he says), Tim Paulenty and Matt Damon.
