Seth Meyers speaks at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner

Seth Meyers, head writer of Saturday Night Live, delivered the main address last night at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner, which the media self-describes as "nerdprom." In essence, it's a chance for the D.C. media elite to mingle with celebs and make fun of themselves.

A lot of people are talking about the Trump jokes, but Meyers waited until halfway through his roast of the media and politicians before even getting to the Donald. The only thing missing from Meyers was a "Really?!?" segment.


It's also a chance for the sitting president to show off his joke-delivery skills. Barack Obama did that quite well, too.
