President Trump spoke at the annual Gridiron Dinner in Washington D.C. on Saturday, even engaging in some self-deprecating humor while referencing recent White House turmoil.
The dinner is attended by hundreds of journalists and is similar to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Here are some of the president’s notable jokes:
“My staff was concerned that I couldn’t do self-deprecating humor,” Trump said. “And I told them not to worry, nobody does self-deprecating humor better than I do.”
On AG Jeff Sessions:
“I offered him a ride over, and he recused himself. What are you gonna do? But that’s OK.”
On VP Mike Pence:
“The other day we were in line shaking hands with men and women, and a woman came over to shake his hand and he said, ‘I’m sorry I can’t do that, my wife is not here.’ He’s 25 years ahead of his time, folks.”
On Jared Kushner:
“Before I get started, I wanted to apologize for arriving a little bit late. You know, we’re late tonight because Jared could not get through the security. I will tell you he is a good guy. And he has suffered. He is a great guy.”
“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. But, I just hit 50 in the Rasmussen poll. A lot of people said I wouldn’t be able to do so well after losing my so-called chief strategist. But somehow, we’re still doing great without Omarosa.”
