Trump torches the media: ‘Most fun I’ve had since watching your faces on election night’

WHITE HOUSE – The motto of the ritzy gala that is the Gridiron dinner is “singe, but don’t burn.”
But President Trump came to the white-tie banquet Saturday night armed with a flamethrower. He sprayed the room, setting anything and everything on fire — including his own family, his top administration aides, even himself.
“Nobody does self-deprecating humor better than I do. It’s not even close,” said the always humble Mr. Trump.
The night is a mostly pretentious affair, held at the Renaissance Washington Hotel not far from the White House. Members of the Washington press corps perform not-so-funny musical skits usually in a bipartisan effort to rib both sides. There are no cameras, and for many years none of the hundreds of attendees leaked a word.
All that’s changed, of course, and everything Mr. Trump said came out. Here are the best of the president’s lines from the dinner in his 35-minute roast:
On his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who recently lost his “top secret” clearance: “We were late tonight because Jared could not get through security. Ivanka, you’ve got to do something!”
