To the victor goes the spoils… or the final trash talk. After putting the Birther movement to rest, President Obama couldn’t help but take a few, final pointed jabs at Donald Trump, who was in attendance for the White House’s correspondence dinner last night (April 30) in Washington, D.C. If American politics has shown anything in the last several decades, it’s that if you say almost anything loud and often with just enough spin, some of the unwashed masses will be naive enough to believe it. With dripping sarcasm, Obama puts the nonsense of the Birther Movement right where it belongs, alongside other conspiracy theories like the fake Moon landing and Roswell UFO incident. The Biggie and ‘Pac reference is priceless, so I won’t spoil it here. I wouldn’t expect any less from a president that keeps Nas and Jay-Z on rotation in his iPod.
Here’s the entire speech. And we have yet another Hip-Hop nod with a skit using ODB’s “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” at the 13:59 for a skit featuring Joe Biden. And the final clip has comedian Seth Meyers throwing some more dirt on Trump beginning at the 12:03 mark.
