Brilliant reason why Trump allowed Obama to insult him

Donald Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio makes the case that one of the Republican presidential contender’s most brilliant moves was to say nothing while he was being mocked in the same room by President Barack Obama and comedian Seth Meyers.

It happened at the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner, after the real estate developer was finally presented with what was purported to be the president’s long-form birth certificate.

D’Antonio, who wrote “Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success,” said that it took a lot of courage for Trump to even show up, knowing beforehand that there were bound to be jokes made at his expense.

But more than that, he said that by allowing cameras to show Trump’s displeasure at being openly mocked was “almost brilliant.” Why? Because it was Trump — not Obama or Meyers — who was the “topic of conversation” following the event.
