@pourmecoffee: The first rule of #nerdprom is, apparently, everyone tweets about #nerdprom.

@mikegenki3: Insert “I saw [insert celeb] at [insert #whcad party]” tweet here. Next up: a main image on your FB page w/ u and [insert celeb]!!

@jaketapper: The thing no one knows about #nerdprom — this year the cool kids are totally going to pigs-blood a certain Carrie in our midst. Tune in!

When President Obama took the stage, he showed a video trailer of ‘The President’s Speech’ and spoke about 2012 presidential hopefuls, his recently released birth certificate, and of course, Donald Trump.

@mike_farah: Obama just strutted out to “I wanna be american” (the hulk hogan song) @ the white house press dinner. Greatest thing ever

@TheFix: Obama shows “birth video” — clip from Lion King. And the crowd goes crazy. #whcd

@KatieS: Dear America, you are welcome #theDonald http://yfrog.com/h0k7vkqj

@chrisjohnson82: Obama on Matt Damon being ‘disappointed’ in POTUS: ‘I just saw The Adjustment Bureau, so right back at you’#WHCD

@iansomerhalder: Can’t tweet pics-reception bad…:( Obama speaking right now- holy shit he is so funny. Seriously the whole room is in laughter.Dems&repubs

@brookeburke: I am stunned & amazed by the presence and power of President Obama. Much greater than he posesses on TV. Can’t believe how funny 2night is!

@AlecJRoss: Oh my God, @KatieS just got Donald Trump to sign a copy of President Obama’s birth certificate here at the WHCD #Nerdprom

Seth Meyers kept the laughs coming…

@mindykaling: Um @sethmeyers21 they’re gonna rename the WHCD speech “Seth Meyers” the way “John Hancock” means signature

@andersoncooper: I’m a huge @sethmeyers21 fan. Its an honor to be mocked by him.

@bronxzooscobra: .@sethmeyers21 talking about me at White House Correspondents Dinner?! I think someone has a snake-crush. And not the boa constrictor kind.

@alyankovic: Is it just me, or was the sexual tension between @sethmeyers21 and Donald Trump at the #WHCD just palpable?

@sethmeyers21: Enjoyed WHC dinner immensely. Anxiously awaiting Trump’s rebuttal
