The White House Correspondents' Dinner has long been an occasion for the press corps and the President to have an entertaining, light-hearted evening typically free of partisan jabs. Obama used the occasion this year to brutally mock Donald Trump as he sat in the audience.

President Barack Obama exacted his revenge Saturday after weeks of attacks from his would-be Republican challenger Donald Trump, joking that the billionaire businessman could bring change to the White House, transforming it from a stately mansion into a tacky casino with a whirlpool in the garden.

For Trump's decision to fire actor Busey instead of rock singer Meat Loaf from his TV show earlier this month, Obama quipped: "These are the types of decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir."

The Donald didn't seem to take to some of the evening's jokes very well, staring "icily" when Meyers called him "a joke."

Here are a few of Obama's "comedy stylings." I know what we all think of Obama's governing prowess, but what about how he fares as a comic?
