Obama Was Joking, Trump Wasn’t

At the White House Correspondent’s Dinner last weekend, President Obama made a joke about Donald Trump’s foreign policy experience.

The Republican establishment is incredulous that he is their most likely nominee — incredulous, shocking. They say Donald lacks the foreign policy experience to be President. But, in fairness, he has spent years meeting with leaders from around the world: Miss Sweden, Miss Argentina, Miss Azerbaijan.

Not a bad line, is it? Apparently Donald Trump doesn’t get the joke. Here is what he told Bret Baier about his foreign policy chops when it comes to Russia (first 10 seconds).

Remind people of this one when they say that we’re supposed to take this guy seriously. It really is impossible to do anything with stuff like this other than point and laugh.
