President Obama Makes Joke Following Terror Attack In Minnesota & New York

Guests at Saturday’s Congressional Black Caucus Foundation event probably didn’t know they would have prime seats for an impromptu stand-up routine from President Obama, but that’s exactly what they were treated to. According to the Daily Mail, the commander-in-chief did not pull any punches either.

As you would expect, the target of his snarkiness was Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, and Obama wasted no time in delivering a few barbs.

“I've got an extra spring in my step tonight. I don't know about you guys, but I am so relieved the whole birther thing is over. I mean, ISIL, North Korea, poverty, climate change - none of those things weighed on my mind like the validity of my birth certificate,” he said.

He would go on to explain that Trump is seriously missing the mark in his call to action for African-American voters to cast their ballots for him.

“You might have heard Hillary’s opponent say there’s never been a worse time to be a black person. I mean, I think he missed that whole civics lesson about slavery and Jim Crow but we got a museum for him to visit,” Obama said.
