Trump mocks media - and himself - at Gridiron Dinner

Trump's trip back to the White House comes after he spent his 100th day at one of his four golf clubs since taking office in January 2017

"I just have an easier time admitting it".

President Trump didn't spare himself, either. After all, this is the same Trump who during the campaign publicly mocked disabled reporter Serge Kovaleski by mimicking Kovaleski's movements simply because the reporter refused to support Trump's lie that Muslims in New Jersey cheered on 9/11. "And I told them not to worry, nobody does self-deprecating humor better than I do". Who's going to be the next to leave? 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.

Despite the several exits that the White House has been dogged by in the last few weeks, Trump seemed to be in a fun mood and also joked about vice president Mike Pence. "What are you gonna do?"

"Another calm week at the White House". The president also cracked on his embattled son-in-law, Jared Kushner, saying, "We were late tonight because Jared could not get through security".

The show was produced by music Chairman John E. Mulligan III, formerly of The Providence Journal; assisted by Deputy Chairman David Lauter of The Los Angeles Times; and skit producers Craig Gilbert of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel; Clark Hoyt, formerly of Knight Ridder and The New York Times; Ruth Marcus of The Washington Post; and Robin Sproul, formerly of ABC News. "Now the question everybody keeps asking is, 'Who is going to be the next to leave? Steve Miller or Melania?'" Trump told the crowd of politicians, journalists, and other Washington insiders at the dinner, according to a pool report sent Sunday evening.

Trump using his wife as a punchline is nothing new.

Gridiron President David Lightman, who cited the frequent friction between the president and the press, joked that he was surprised Trump chose to attend because it meant he "has to eat dinner at a hotel he doesn't own". He also said: "I was very excited to receive this invitation and ruin your evening in person".

The performer has reportedly been released from her non-disclosure agreement and is free to discuss her alleged affair with President Donald Trump, which reportedly took place around the time that Melania gave birth to their youngest son, Barron.

Speaking at this year's traditional Gridiron Club Dinner, Trump let loose with one-liners on themes including North Korea and his own revolving-door White House staff. I like chaos. It really is good.

"We finally have it running like a fine-tuned machine", Trump said. As a former president, he would no longer be subject to the harsh spotlight of what he likes to refer to as the "fake news".

While it has been said that Donald Trump has been left isolated and vulnerable after the shock departure of Hope Hicks, it looks like he is finally coming to terms with it and even making jokes about it. I'd gladly pay a cover charge and spring for a two-drink minimum to see that.
