Biden roasts Trump (in a serious way) at annual press dinner

At the White House correspondents' dinner, the president chuckled at his opponent's expense but made it clear Donald Trump is no joke

There were some 2,600 people at Saturday's White House Correspondents' Association dinner. But, really, it came down to only two men: Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

Washington's annual mashup of political humor and earnest paeans to the free press is typically a good-natured collection of one-liners and affectionate jabs at friends and enemies alike. But it was the leading 2024 presidential contenders who loomed largest - one in the Washington Hilton hotel ballroom, the other who definitely, positively, probably was not watching from Mar-a-Lago. Unless, of course, he was.

"The 2024 election is in full swing and, yes, age is an issue," President Biden told the black-tie crowd. "I'm a grown man running against a 6-year-old."
