President Trump mocks Jared Kushner at annual dinner

President Trump mocks Jared Kushner at annual dinner

Trump joked about the media, Jared Kushner, and Democrats while first daughter Ivanka Trump stole the show in an elegant Carolina Herrera gown.

"We were late tonight because Jared could not get through security", the president told the crowd. "When she asked whether or not she could sign the money, I said, 'Steve, you've got a lot to handle.' I said, 'You can't do that, Steven'".

Despite the president previously appearing to be far less comfortable with such comedic shows than his predecessor Barack Obama, who gave several amusing speeches to the White House Correspondents Dinner, which Trump previous year avoided, he seemed to enjoy his new role as comedian in chief.

Trump took several digs at himself and the press at the Gridiron Dinner, but his most searing quips targeted his administration and his family.

At the closed-door event, where filming was prohibited, Trump also discussed more somber issues like North Korea, saying he was open to direct talks with its leader, Kim Jong Un. I just won't. As far as the risk of dealing with a madman is concerned, that's his problem, not mine.

In a nod to his penchant for over-the-top praise of his accomplishments, Trump said, "My staff was concerned that I couldn't do self-deprecating humor. It's not even close!"

Before launching into a litany of humorous jokes at both his and his administration's expense, Trump told the room of journalists that even Sen. "That's why I accepted".

In subsequent days, White House aides sought to walk back Trump's comments. I like chaos. It really is good. Who's going to be the next to leave ― [aide] Steve Miller or Melania?

China's governing Communist Party is expected to remove a clause in the constitution which limits a president to two five-year terms later this week. They've lost a tremendous amount of credibility this year. "That guy leaked more than the Titanic!".

Central Michigan University, located about 155 miles northwest of Detroit in the USA state of Michigan, has about 23,000 students. The episode rattled nerves at Central Michigan , where details of the shooting were released slowly.

"That's awful. But you love me right, honey?" "The only difference is, I still own my buildings".

Noting that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) regularly calls for his impeachment, Trump said, "And I say - and I get in trouble for this - 'she has to immediately take an IQ test, ' and people go insane".

"I really am very proud to call him The Apprentice", Trump gushed.

Trump made time to mention of one of his preferred media outlets and his daily TV routine: "I have to be up early tomorrow morning - six o'clock - to be listening to Fox and Friends". "I don't like that".

"You can't be impeached when there's no crime".

For his part, Trump tweeted Sunday: "The Gridiron Dinner last night was great fun".

Trump was the guest of honour at the 133rd Gridiron dinner, where prominent Washington-based journalists traditionally make fun of the president and take jabs at the United States political scene.

President Trump made an observation about the ruthless nature of politics.

He then attempted to fix any inference that the first lady might leave him by praising her for the job she's done and by saying "she's actually having a great time". "And the other job, I was the host of a smash television hit". "Nobody does self-deprecating humor better than I do", the president joked.
