    Was anyone else utterly embarrassed by how Obama acted and represented the U.S. at the WHCA dinner?

    Was his behavior unbefitting that of the leader of one of the most powerful countries in the world?

    No.  It shows that President Obama is a regular guy, who can speak like a regular guy, and is not some uptight elitist who was born of privilege.  I thought it was quite funny.  Trump was not amused, but then again Trump is an uptight elitist who was born of privilege.

    Trump was an idiot for showing up to that dinner.  It was a bad weekend for Trump.  I was watching Trump's ego on full display during The Apprentice, when the show was interrupted by the huge news that Obama's decision to focus the war on terrorism on Afghanistan and Pakistan had yielded the top prize, Osama Bin Laden.

    I heard that those kinds of roasts are actually expected at these annual dinners. I actually respect Obama even more now because it just proves he doesn't take all these stupid rumors seriously.  Embarrassed by Obama?  No.  I'm embarrassed by Donald Trump and our media.

    No, the occasion traditionally calls for a relaxed attitude and a sense of humor. I for one was impressed with his comic timing and delivery.
    No president in recent memory has been quite so erudite and cool as Obama. He represented himself and the office well, in my opinion.
