Trump Jokes About Maxine Waters Needing An IQ Test At Gridiron Dinner

Trump is roasted for his fondness for Fox News, the Mueller probe and by a Hillary impersonator parodying 'You're So Vain' as Melania, Ivanka and cabinet members join him for Gridiron dinner

Just hours before, Trump tweeted that "Mainstream Media in United States is being mocked all over the world". You know, we're late tonight because Jared could not get through the security.

Nothing about Trump's attendance at the annual dinner of the Gridiron Club, an elite group of 65 top Washington journalists, made a lot of sense. "You can't be impeached when there's no crime".

"Orrin said that 'Donald Trump is the best at self-deprecation in the history of America".

The president's one-liners contrasted with his usual stance toward the media, which he often accuses of bias against his administration and family. "They've gone insane!" he wrote, linking to a story by a conservative pundit saying Trump and his family are victims of "unparalleled" press attacks.

The Gridiron Dinner's reputation as a night of bipartisan mirth was evidenced by those who accepted invitations, including last year's headliner, Vice-President Pence. Presidents since William McKinley have dutifully shown up at the Gridiron's formal clambake, which has evolved into an evening of goofy entertainment by the journalists and jokey monologues by a prominent Republican and Democrat, and a roast-like speech by the president.

Unlike the widely-televised White House Correspondents' Association dinner, which Trump chose to skip past year, there are no cameras allowed inside the white-tie Gridiron event. "I offered him a ride over, and he recused himself".

Popular rapper, Rick Ross on life support
The 42-year-old is in hospital in Miami , with unconfirmed reports from some USA media suggesting he's in a critical condition. The outlet noted that this can often mean that the patient suffered from a heart attack, though there's no official word yet.

With an eye on the president, Landrieu said: "We're both overweight and balding".

But even while acknowledging the unrest behind the scenes of his administration, Trump remained bullish. So I like turnover. "It really is good".

"So, who's going to be the next to leave?". He turned to his wife and said, "You love me?"

The prez later joked that because of new tax reforms, "she can finally claim me as an adult dependent". "She said, 'Behave.'. Is that awful?"

But the president also used the occasion to deliver some serious remarks about North Korea.

The president said Pyongyang had recently reached out to Washington to say they would like to meet.

Does it sound like Mike Zimmer wants Teddy Bridgewater as his QB?
Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer spoke to the media Thursday from the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. Bridgewater was a first-round pick of the Vikings in 2014 and was named the NFL Rookie of the Year.

"As I'm sure you've seen, we're now riding very high in the polls, which is hard to believe considering I never get any good press", Trump said.

Trump also raised the not-necessarily comedy-gold subject of the nuclear standoff with North Korea, saying: "I won't rule out direct talks with Kim Jong-un". On the Russian Federation investigation, he said, "Everyone knows the Trump campaign couldn't collude with the RNC in Pennsylvania". A woman came over to shake his hand and he said, 'I'm sorry.

"My staff was concerned heading into this dinner that I couldn't do self-deprecating humor. We will be meeting and we'll see if anything positive happens".

The evening featured club members performing in musical skits lampooning key figures in the White House, Congress and politics.

It was just the latest Gridiron invitation accepted by a USA president, all but one of whom have attended the ritzy, closed-door dinner since the elite media organization's founding in 1885. Besides joking about Pence and Kushner, Trump also slipped in a joke about the rumored state of his marriage in a departure from his usually more serious tone.

President Trump has a fantastic sense of humor, the left? "President for life. No, he's great", Trump said, according to a recording obtained by CNN.

Amazon Web Services widespread outage causes Alexa to lost her voice
Alexa will also be mindful of the Japanese culture, which is more formal and conservative than American culture. Amazon is not the only major tech company that seeks to beef up the translation capabilities of its products.

As he began his remarks, Trump told reporters: "We really looked forward to this - well, maybe not".
