Trump shows off comedic side during Gridiron Club Dinner

Trump shows off comedic side during Gridiron Club Dinner

"I like turnover. I like chaos".

And despite what Trump's wife, Melania, must be feeling after learning of two alleged affairs that Trump may have had early in their marriage, there was Trump joking about his wife: "So many people have been leaving the White House".

"As far as the risk of dealing with a madman is concerned, that's his problem, not mine", Trump said.

"North Korea dangled a meeting in hopes of the vice president softening his message, which could have ceded the world stage for their propaganda during the Olympics", said Nick Ayers, Pence's chief of staff.

Trump even reprised his presidential election success, something audiences seem destined to hear for the 34 months until voters get an opportunity to change their 2016 mistake. "He is asking 'has he been impeached yet?' I don't like that". Also on hand was his daughter and senior adviser, Ivanka.

But much of Trump's comedy routine was going after people who are down on their luck. Steve Miller, or Melania? 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".

"I can't stop laughing at this photo of Donald Trump touching Mike Pence's thigh", one commenter said. "She said, behave! By the way she has been an incredible first lady".

With the departure of Trump's communications director Hope Hicks and his son-in-law Jared Kushner having his security clearance downgraded, it's not been the best week for the POTUS.

In another wisecrack, Trump said he had offered Jeff Sessions a ride to the event but the attorney general "recused himself" - a reference to the top law enforcement official's abstention from the Russian Federation probe. 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.

The annual dinner of the Gridiron Club and Foundation is marking its 133rd anniversary Saturday night. The entertainment includes comedy/song sketches form media members.

In Trump's first post Sunday on Twitter, he tweeted: "The Gridiron Dinner last night was great fun". "I am accomplishing a lot in Washington and have never had a better time doing something, and especially since this is for the American People!"

While Trump turned down invitations to these events during his first year in office, Harriot says the president is now attending since he's going to be made fun of anyway.
