2011 Correspondent Dinner - Trump Gets Booed

In the days leading up to the dinner, many were unimpressed that the Washington Post even invited Trump as their guest. Salon's Alex Pareene asked, "Why would the Washington Post, as an institution, officially align themselves with a living freak show?" It turns out the anti-Trump sentiment continued all the way to the red carpet. The Wrap reported that Trump was booed on arrival at Hilton. And things got worse from there.

In “Celebrity Apprentice,” Mr. Obama told Mr. Trump, teeth flashing, “the men’s cooking team did not impress the judges from Omaha steaks, but you recognized that this was a lack of leadership, so you fired Gary Busey.”  “These,” Mr. Obama said, “are the kinds of decisions that would keep me up at night. Well-handled, sir. Well-handled.”
