President Donald Trump took a few jabs at himself and immensely enjoyed jokes at his enemy's expense at the annual Gridiron Dinner on Saturday night, the Washington Post is reporting.
The Washington D.C. gathering, which is not televised and is supposed to be kept off the record, gave Trump the opportunity to let down his hair a bit and joke for the media, and he obliged while also making more ugly jokes about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and other critics.
According to the report, Trump acknowledged the reports of a chaotic White House, quipping, “So many people have been leaving the White House. It’s invigorating since you want turnover. I like chaos. It really is good. Who’s going to be the next to leave? Steve Miller or Melania?”
Trump reportedly took some jabs at Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who he claimed was avoiding him, but once gain referred to Warren as "Pocahontas" - a slur aimed at her claim of Native American heritage.
Trump also delivered a backhanded compliment to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), calling her, “crazy, but a fine woman.”
Additionally, Trump even took a job at his Son-in-law Jared Kushner's White House troubles, saying, "We were late tonight because Jared could not get through security.”
Coming from the other side of the aisle, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu (D), took a few jabs at Trump, joking “We’re both a little overweight and balding — I just have had an easier time admitting it.”
“I feel kinda out of place here,” Landrieu explained, before turning to Trump's cabinet. “More out of place than Mike Pence at a men’s figure skating competition. More out of place than Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin. More out of place than the Mnuchins in a Waffle House. More out of place than Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice. More out of place than John Kelly. Period.”
