Trump full of jokes at annual media dinner

US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump board Air Force One in West Palm Florida ahead of the annual Gridiron Dinner

"Man." Trump also said, "I really am proud to call him the apprentice". There's Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who Trump slammed on Twitter (again) this week and reportedly has now nicknamed, "Mr. Magoo," after a nearsighted cartoon character.

Discussing son-in-law Jared Kutcher losing his security clearance, Trump quipped that he arrived late to the event because "Jared could not get through the security".

Now, I'm sure some Trump supporters will defend Trump with a typical "what aboutism", arguing that President Barack Obama comically fileted Trump at the 2011 White House Correspondent's Dinner.

Melania wasn't the only member of President Trump's family to be the butt of the joke on Saturday.

Created in 1885, the Gridiron Club sponsors an annual dinner featuring skits and songs seeking to make fun of politicians from both parties, particularly the sitting president. Shortly after, a former Playboy model came forward about her alleged affair with the now-president as well. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, will represent Democrats.

He unloaded on familiar targets: the outgoing publisher of the "failing New York Times", CNN, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, "Sleepy Joe" Biden, Oprah Winfrey (whose potential presidential run appears to have unsettled him), Rep. Adam Schiff of California and Sen.

Republicans and Democrats get zinged in separate skits.

The movie will have a multi-star cast, including Nana Patekar , Huma Qureshi, Samuthirakani, Anjali Patil and Sayaji Shinde. The only other movie where Rajini has played a don is his 1995 superhit Baasha , that was based on Amitabh Bachchan's Hum.

However, if Saturday night is any indication, were Trump to swap his role as commander-in-chief for comedian-in-chief, he would likely be a cruel, heartless comedian who would "punch down", mocking those already struggling.

The opening number takes on the uproar sparked by author Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury", his inside look at the Trump White House. In fact, based on what was reported about the event (cameras were not permitted), I wish Trump would give up his "day job" and pursue comedy full time. "They thought Trump had vouched for me, boy, were they naïve". It's invigorating since you want turnover.

"That's bad. But you love me right, honey?".

Trump was jetting back from his Mar-a-Largo resort in Florida Saturday afternoon.

Also on hand: the secretaries of Treasury, Health and Human Services, Commerce, Labor, Transportation and Homeland Security, and the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. And the president who regularly accuses mainstream journalists of "fake news" concluded by very briefly thanking "the press for all you do to support and sustain our democracy", adding twice for emphasis: "I mean that".

The Gridiron Dinner, at the Renaissance Hotel, is on the record but is not televised.

Many reports and rumors from the White House have said that the First Lady has been distant and icy, especially since the latest batch of revelations concerning adult actress Stormy Daniels came out.
