Obama Reaction to Seth Meyers’ Osama bin Laden Joke

Written by Pats Papers | Monday, 2 May 2011 12:52 AM


Knowing what we know now about the death of Osama bin Laden, the result of an attack ordered several days ago, is there anything to be read into President Obama’s reaction when Seth Meyers brought up bin Laden’s name at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner? The raid on bin Laden’s compound happened mid-afternoon Eastern Time on Sunday; the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was held the night before, on Saturday, but you’ve got to assume that the president was fully aware of what was in the works.

(Edited this story at 8 am ET to resolve confusion about whether the raid occured before or after the Saturday dinner.)
