On Saturday, Donald Trump made history as only the third president to bow out of the White House Correspondents' Dinner. And while this has much to do with Trump's ever-worsening battle with the press and his constant struggle to book talent, it's also worth remembering that, to be frank, Trump probably has another reason for ditching: He usually gets clobbered at these things. So, in the interest of, uh, elucidation, please enjoy these videos of Trump getting roasted at the 2011 and 2016 White House Correspondents' Dinner. Better yet, enjoy Trump's mirthless reactions. They're uncomfortable to watch, but extremely worth it. SEE ALSO: An exclusive look at Donald Trump's Twitter drafts for Oscar night First, here's President Obama clapping back at Trump's relentless "birther" conspiracy-mongering. The Lion King is involved. Next, observe Seth Meyers insisting that Trump must be running for president as a "joke." Trump does not smile. And here's Obama ripping on The Apprentice. Finally, here's a delightful compilation of all the best Trump burns from the 2016 dinner. A Larry Wilmore highlight: "Yeah, Trump's campaign is inspiring ... mass violence." (Trump did not attend that one, BTW.) So, there you have it. While we're not sure about the future of this year's event, we'll always have those stunners to fall back on. And you can always zoom in on this cursed image while listening to "Sound of Silence." Image: Youtube/C-Span BONUS: Jordan Peele reacts to 'Get Out' as Barack Obama: 'Surrounded by white people!

Is the dying Sears Holding Corp. (SHLD) back in growth mode? Apparently it's having visions that all is just fine and dandy. With little fanfare, Sears opened a full-service auto care facility called DieHard Auto Center Driven by Sears in San Antonio last week. The news of its debut was first reported by Automotive News. Similar to a Pep Boys, Sears' auto service stop provides oil changes, tire replacement and vehicle repairs and assessments. Unlike Sears Auto Centers, the Diehard Auto Center isn't attached to a Sears store or in a parking lot of one. In effect, the store may be nothing more than Sears trying to showcase the brand's potential. To raise cash last May, Sears put its three best-known
