President Barack Obama shot back at Donald Trump after the real estate mogul famously and recently questioned the validity of the Commander in Chief's place of birth.
According to the Washington Post, Trump and his wife Melania attended Saturday's White House Correspondents' Dinner (and entered the event to boos from the crowd outside), and suffered through -- while others laughed through -- Obama's speech, which was chock full of pot shots at "The Apprentice" star.
Obama said he was going to show his official birth video and then played a clip of 'The Lion King.' Following the clip he said, "I want to make this clear to the Fox News table: That was a joke That was not my real birth video. That was a children's cartoon. Call Disney if you don’t believe me. They have the original long-form version."
The president also made more direct jokes at Trump's expense.
"You, Mr. Trump, recognized that the real problem was a lack of leadership," Obama said. "And so ultimately, you didn't blame Lil Jon or Meat Loaf. You fired Gary Busey. These are the kind of decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir."
"Saturday Night Live" star Seth Meyers followed the president with a speech that ended in a standing ovation from from the attendees. Check out the video to see!
