- Seth Meyers roasted Trump during the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2011, not aware that Trump was also the focus of President Obama's quips
- it has been speculated that the ridicule and humiliation of that night made Trump want to run as an actual candidate, to prove everyone wrong
- Seth Meyers offers his sincerest apologies
Some of the jokes from that evening:
Barack Obama: Now, I know that he’s taken some flak lately, but no one is happier, no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than The Donald. And that’s because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter — like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?
Seth Meyers: Donald Trump has been saying he will run for president as a Republican — which is surprising, since I just assumed he was running as a joke.
Seth Meyers: Trump owns the Miss USA Pageant, which is great for Republicans, because it will streamline their search for a vice president.
Seth Meyers: Donald Trump said recently he’s got a great relationship with ‘the blacks.’ Unless the Blacks are a family of white people, I bet he’s mistaken.
Donald Trump later said that he was having a great time and felt honored to be the subject of President Obama's jokes. About Meyers, he said: “I thought Seth Meyers, frankly, his delivery was not good — he’s a stutterer and he really was having a hard time. I didn’t like his routine. His was too nasty, out of order.”
