President Obama at the White House Correspondents' DinnerThe White House Correspondents’ Dinner is a chance for everyone in Washington to chill out, kick back and get a little silly.

While President Bush made an ass of himself in past years – seeking, but not finding, weapons of mass destruction – President Obama took the opportunity to poke fun at OTHER people who were making asses of themselves. Particularly Donald Trump.

He announced he was releasing, for the very first time ever, his official birth video… and then ran the birth scene from “The Lion King”.

And then said, “I want to make clear to the Fox News table… THAT WAS A JOKE… Call Disney if you don’t believe me; they have the original long-form version.”

He didn’t talk about climate change, or the environment, or alternative energy. But he did get a dig in about healthy Food, describing last week’s Easter Egg hunt as “I would give out bags of candy to the kids and [Michelle] would snatch them right back out of their little hands.”

Here’s the whole performace:
