The Commander In Chief Meets With The Birther In Chief (VIDEO)

The leader of the free world meets with the leader of the birthers

Today, in what had to have been the most awkward meeting in political history, President Barack Obama met with Donald Trump for the first time.

They held the nearly 90 minute meeting at the White House's oval office to discuss the transition between President Obama to the man who spent years attempting to delegitimize him, the first African American president.

After the meeting had concluded reporters were brought into the room to hear brief statements from  the President and Donald Trump.

Obama said he was “encouraged” by the meeting with Trump and his interest in working with his team...

I believe that it is important for all of us, regardless of party and regardless of political preferences, to now come together, work together to deal with the many challenges that we face,” 

Obama also addressed Trump directly...

We now are going to want to do everything we can to help you succeed, because if you succeed, the country succeeds,” 

Trump also spoke briefly...

I look forward to dealing with the president in the future, including counsel,

Despite the cordial tone the mutual disdain the two share with each other was palpable.

To give you an idea of the uncomfortable tension that loomed over the event all one has to do is look at the faces of President Obama's staff...

First lady Michelle Obama, who met with future first lady Melania Trump, says they shared an “excellent conversation” and said they plan to “make sure they feel welcome as they prepare to make this transition."
