About 12 hours after serving himself up on a platter during the White House Correspondents Dinner, a steaming Donald Trump fired back, calling President Barack Obama's remarks "inappropriate" and labeling host Seth Meyers "a stutterer."
Trump was back on his home court Sunday morning, making yet another appearance on "Fox and Friends," attempting to explain why he'd possibly attend a function in which he was booed on arrival and roasted mercilessly.
"Well, I really understood what I was getting into — I didn't know that I'd be virtually the sole focus," Trump said. "I guess when you're leading in the polls that sort of thing tends to happen. But I was certainly in a certain way having a good time listening."
That's open for debate — virtually every report had the Birther Movement leader scowling during the entire affair.
With Obama connecting with round-houses like this one — “We all know about your credentials and wealth of experience. The other night on “Celebrity Apprentice” … you fired Gary Busey — Trump went rope-a-dope Sunday morning.
Trump put into question the entire tradition of the Correspondents Dinner, which dates back to the 1940s.
"I don't think the American people are having a good time with $5 gas. … I was thinking to myself as they were doing this, you know, the American people are really suffering and we're all (having fun at a dinner)."
As for Meyers,
"I thought Seth Meyers — who said Trump shouldn't be running as a Republican, but "as a joke" — Trump said "his delivery frankly was not good. He's a stutterer and he really was having a hard time."
