'Put That Impeachment Down!' Trump Helps Himself to Teasing at Gridiron Dinner

'Put That Impeachment Down!' Trump Helps Himself to Teasing at Gridiron Dinner”

And he said he offered Attorney General Jeff Sessions a ride to the dinner, but "he recused himself".

Arriving late at the Gridiron Club's white-tie dinner, at which dozens of journalists and politicians gather to trade barbs, Trump said he was late because his son-in-law Jarred Kushner could not get through the security.

The Gridiron dinner was the President's first appearance at a press function after past year turning down an invitation to the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

The president also quipped about VP Mike Pence allegedly asking every morning whether Trump had been impeached yet - an apparent reference to the vice president being next in line for the presidency if Trump's most ardent critics succeed in ejecting him from office.

In his first Gridiron appearance, Trump assured the audience that "nobody does self-deprecating humor better than I do".

President Trump didn't spare himself, either. There are enough gold doubloons in the city of New Orleans you could literally write your name across a building in huge gold letters. "Nobody does self deprecating humour better than I do".

That's probably the kindest thing Trump has publicly said of his attorney general, whom he once called "beleaguered" and slammed him as "disgraceful" just last week.

North Korea says the United States "should not misjudge" its intention for dialogue following President Donald Trump's comments Saturday night that Pyongyang had recently reached out about possible talks. And I really try to tell her that you can't be a true populist unless you're worth at least ten billion dollars. And turning to his daughter and advisor Ivanka Trump, who was present, Trump said, "Ivanka, you've got to do something!"

Trump made some news - it's not clear it was intended - when he said, "I won't rule out direct talks with (North Korea's) Kim Jong Un". "I said so would we, but you have to denuke", Mr Trump said. "Steve Miller or Melania?" "As far as the risk of dealing with a madman is concerned, that's his problem not mine", Trump told the more than 600 attendees during his 35-minute address at the Renaissance Washington Hotel on Saturday.

Mr Trump said that he'd offered Jeff Sessions a ride to the dinner, but that the attorney general had "recused himself", a gag about the frosty relationship between the pair since Sessions recused himself from the Russian Federation probe.

"Many people have asked me how my time as a reality TV star prepared me for the presidency, the truth is there's very little overlap between the two", he said.

He reportedly added that Melania, who was present at the dinner was actually having an ace time in Washington. "It really is good", he said, while Melania was on the stage with him.

Both functions, which are traditionally attended by the U.S. president, are known for their light hearted ribbing of the head-of-state.

He went on to mention former aide Steve Bannon, saying he "leaked more than the Titanic", and he referred to Vice President Mike Pence as his "apprentice". "I love the Dreamers". He said spending the evening with them was the best time he'd had since watching their faces on election night. Diva Davis, 47, and James Eric Davis Sr., 48, drove about four hours from the Chicago area to pick up their son from the hospital, just in time for spring break.
