Following Donald Trump’s election to the U.S. presidency, a video has resurfaced of comedian and talk show host Seth Meyers mocking Trump at a White House Correspondents dinner over a possible presidential run.
In the video, Meyers jokes that “Donald Trump has been saying he’ll run for president as a Republican, which is surprising as I just assumed he was running as a joke.”
Meyers also made fun of Trump’s hairstyle, comparing it to a fox, and said that Gary Busey, who said that Trump would make a great president, said “the same thing about an old rusty birdy cage he found.”
Obama also joined Meyers in mocking Trump’s possible run, saying that he was glad Trump had rejected the birther conspiracy so he could get back to real issues that matter, such as “did we fake the moon landing,” “what really happened in Roswell,” and “where are Biggie and Tupac?”
He also made fun of Trump’s “credentials and birth of experience,” jokingly citing his firing of Gary Busey on Celebrity Apprentice as an example of his leadership qualities.
“Well handled, sir. Well handled.”
