President Obama mocks Donald Trump and other "birthers"

Reality star Donald Trump was one of the louder voices of the birther movement against President Obama, especially when he was toying with the possibility of running for president on the Republican ticket in 2012. Obama showed a clip from Disney's "The Lion King" at the start of his speech at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington to mock Trump, Fox News and other birthers.
