President Obama was making the gags but it turns out Donald Trump will be the one with the last laugh.

Five years after President Obama roasted the new President-elect for his lack of experience and glitzy taste, he will give him a tour of the White House that will become his new home.

It comes after President Obama made a public appeal for a smooth transition of power and said he hopes the country unifies behind Donald Trump.

It was a speech at odds with his roasting of the reality-star and real estate tycoon in 2011 when he mocked him for the “birther” movement that claimed Obama was not born in America and the tough decisions he was forced to make on Celebrity Apprentice.

At the time, the first-term President said he would release his “official birth video” before showing a clip from the Lion King. He said it would be a great chance to put “the Donald’s” mind at rest”

“That’s because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter like: Did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell and where are Biggie and Tupac?”

This could be awkward

With Donald Trump in the room and plenty of laughs rolling in he launched into an attack on his “credentials and breadth of experience” which allow him to make decisions like who to fire on Celebrity Apprentice.

“These are the kind of decisions that would keep me up at night,” he joked.

The final gag was one about the “changes” Mr Trump could bring to the White House before showing a mock up of the famous address looking like a casino.

Let’s just hope Donald Trump isn’t in a vengeful mood when they meet in Washington on Thursday.
