President Trump looked absurdly trying to joke and laughed at his own troubles during the Gridiron dinner on Saturday night.
The yearly dinner is attended by hundreds of journalists and filled with jokes and laughter. But many wondered whether the notoriously thin-skinned president would be able to join in on the fun, especially in light of the scandal surrounding former communications director Hope Hicks’ surprise resignation on Wednesday.
So… It looks like he even tried, but it wasn’t really fun. However Trump surprised everyone by seemingly attempting to gloss over the drama and poke fun at his troubles, according to pool reports from the White House Press Office.
“It’s been a really calm week at the White House. So many people have been leaving the White House. It’s actually been really exciting and invigorating ’cause you want new thought. So I like turnover. I like chaos. It really is good. Now the question everyone keeps asking is, ‘Who is going to be the next to leave? Steve Miller or Melania?’ ”
Then he sincerely adding that his wife is “actually having a great time” in Washington, D.C.
Trump also went on to tease his son-in-law Jared Kushner, he said that he was late “because Jared couldn’t get through security.”
Recall that Jared Kushner recently lost his access to confidential White House information after his top secret security clearance was downgraded.
But the best part of the evening for Trump was a song performed by journalists which mocked the former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Trump “applauded vigorously.” He was really enjoyed it.
