Donald Trump can't take a joke.

Appearing of Fox News the morning after President Barack Obama and Seth Meyers skewered him at the White House Correspondents Dinner, the reality star wasn't laughing.

"Well I really understood what I was getting into," Trump said. "I didn't know I would be virtually the sole focus but I guess when you are leading in most of the polls, that tends to happen."

"It is inappropriate in certain respects but I thought [Obama's] delivery was good. I thought Seth Meyers, frankly, his delivery was not good. He's a stutterer and he was really having a hard time," he added.

Shortly after the event ended Saturday night, New York Magazine asked The Donald if he thought the speeches were funny.

"No, not really. Some were fun, but not the greatest," he said.
