President Obama Speaks At Final White House Correspondence Dinner

Donald Trump may not have been at the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday night, but his presence was certainly felt — especially during a roasting by the POTUS himself.

President Barack Obama said he was "a little hurt" that the Republican presidential frontrunner wasn't at "Nerd Prom," noting, "We had so much fun that last time." Trump, in fact, did not have fun last year, keeping a sour face in the midst of jokes made about him.

The President wondered why Trump might not be there, asking, "Is this dinner too tacky for the Donald?"

"Is he at home eating a Trump steak, tweeting out insults to Angela Merkel?" Obama asked.

However, the other presidential candidates weren't safe either. Obama noted that Bernie Sanders is much more appealing to young voters, comparing Hillary Clinton's attempts to get the approval of youth is like "your relative signing up for Facebook."

He did, though, throw her a bone: "Next year, someone else will be standing in this very spot, and it's anyone's guess who she will be." Clinton, of course, is the only female candidate in the race.

POTUS didn't fail to include quite a few pop culture riffs in his routine. He made references to "Game of Thrones," "Spotlight" and of course, Kendall Jenner, who sat in the audience.

"I'm not sure exactly what she does, but I'm told that my Twitter mentions are about to go through the roof," he said of Jenner.
