Obama's Comic Relief

The annual White House correspondents' dinner provides a welcome opportunity for the President to indulge in some light hearted banter and general mickey-taking at the expense of nearly anybody within the political realm.

There is usually a comedian of sorts who has free reign to dole out all manner of abuse with some making more use of the opportunity than others. Recent dinners have seen Stephen Colbert's attempt verging on downright abuse, loyal to the style of his TV alter-ego, whilst it is fair to say Jay Leno did not live up to his billing.

Below is Obama's attempt from this year where Donald Trump was seemingly target number 1 due to the infamous 'birther' issue. In all honesty, with that dyed hair and fake tan he is a bit of an easy target.
