As you've probably heard, American military and CIA operatives killed Osama bin Laden last night, shooting him in the head and later burying him at sea. The news broke on Twitter by a tweet from former Donald Rumsfeld staffer Keith Urbahn, and in her haste to break the news, NBC's Norah O'Donnell accidentally tweeted "Obama shot and killed per @JimMiklaszewski."
Obama is alive and well, and on Saturday night at the White House Correspondents Dinner took shots at guest Donald Trump, suggesting The Donald believes the moon landing was faked. Obama later took some ribbing of his own from SNL's Seth Meyers, who wanted to know how he's aged so fast in just over two years on the job. "What happened to you? When you were sworn in you looked like the guy from the Old Spice commercials. Now you look like Louis Gosset Sr. I've never said this to anyone before, but maybe you should start smoking again."
Meyers saved his best (or at least his meanest) jokes for Donald Trump. On his candidacy: "Donald Trump said that he was running for president as a Republican. That's funny, because I thought he was running as a joke." Trump later fired back at Meyers, saying "...his delivery frankly was not good. He's a stutterer."
Also making news at the White House Correspondents Dinner were guests Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson, who were engaged in an "intense" make-out session, just as the main course was being put on the table, and that ScarJo then sat on Penn's lap during part of the meal.
