    The is mainly a political roast where everyone is fair game. Trump became a huge butt of jokes tonight, everyone else was laughing but him.
    It is a 40 minute clip but well worth a look. http://www.c-span.org/WHCD/

    Watched the live stream last night, it was pretty good. I thought Meyers bit was a little short compared to past entertainers.

    Obama's birth video was pretty good. :p

    Obama and Meyer's delivered. I can't wait for Trump to respond and you know he will, in his 15 year old bully way. Can't wait to see who plays him on SNL. :D

    A Trump quote from the article ...

    I don't think the American people are having a good time with $5 gas. ... I was thinking to myself as they were doing this, you know, the American people are really suffering and we're all having fun at a gala.

    I guess this means that as long as the American people are suffering, The Donald will be giving up on fun.

    How noble of him. :rolleyes:

    I would think Hammond would come back to do Trump.

    Trump brought it on himself. If you are going to speak in politics and make yourself look like a dumb ass expect to be made fun off. I though it was priceless.

    From the speech I like the part about who can beat Obama in 2012. Obama from 2008 could bet him in 2012. Sad but true. I knew in 2008 and I knew I said it Obama could never pull of much of what he promised. It was more of the same just a different face. People who believe he could deliver everything he promised then were idiots. Mind you he was better than the other choice but that is not saying much.

    Obama roasted Trump so bad. I actually laughed most of the time.

    OBJECTIVE reality
    I'd love to know who writes Obama's material for these things. I can't believe it's the regular WH speechwriters. It's too good. Very Daily Show-like. Of course, I'm sure he's got a lot of Hollywood supporters who'd be more than glad to help him out. :D

    Seth Meyers hit the right note -- funny but not as openly insulting as Stephen Colbert was a few years back. (Not that I don't think W. deserved it.) I loved Meyers' line, "Mr. President, if your hair gets any whiter the Tea Party is going to endorse it."

    Edit: Did I call it, or did I call it?
