Donald Trump, press trade jabs at annual Gridiron dinner

First lady Melania to attend Gridiron dinner with Trump

Trump also mocked his embattled U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions, who made a surprise appearance at the Gridiron Dinner: "I offered him a ride over and he recused himself".

Trump skipped last year's Gridiron Club Dinner, but told attendees on Saturday that he wanted to be there to "ruin your evening in person", USA Today said. "My staff was concerned that I couldn't do self-deprecating humor".

Ignoring numerous self-deprecating remarks about his administration, they seem particularly hysterical about Trump's joke that Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) should take an IQ test.

Trump said he wouldn't rule out direct talks with North Korea but Kim Jong Un faced "the risk of dealing with a madman".

"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".

It began Sunday when CNN obtained a copy of Trump's remarks to a closed fundraiser in Florida that included a joke about a foreign leader: China President Xi Jinping, who recently removed term limits for his post.

Asked by Variety whether he planned to attend that dinner, Trump said, "We haven't decided yet".

President Trump has a fantastic sense of humor, the left?

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump arrive for the Gridiron Dinner in Washington, D.C., Saturday night. I like chaos. It is really good. "It's invigorating since you want turnover", Trump quipped.

"If I've learned anything in the 14 months here in Washington, on the White House, it's that there's all sorts of malicious leaks" created to "hurt us", said Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro on Fox News Sunday, commenting on claims of mutiny over new proposed tariffs. Now the question everyone keeps asking is, 'w\Who is going to be the next to leave?

The president compared his current role to his turn on the reality television series The Apprentice, joking, "In one job I had to manage a cutthroat cast of characters, desperate for TV time, totally unprepared for their roles and their jobs and each week afraid of having their asses fired, and the other job I was the host of a smash television hit".

Gridiron President David Lightman, who cited the frequent friction between the president and the press, joked that he was surprised Trump chose to attend because it meant he "has to eat dinner at a hotel he doesn't own".

"We were late tonight because Jared could not get through security", Trump said.

"By the way, a couple days ago they said we would like to talk, and I said, so would we, but you have to de-nuke, you have to de-nuke". "Looking to find common ground with the president, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, a Democrat, observed that 'we're both a little overweight and balding - I just have had an easier time admitting it, '" the newspaper reported. "Steve Miller or Melania?'" Trump joked. He's going to be president? A lot of people said I wouldn't be able to do so well after losing my so-called chief strategist. I will tell you he is a good guy.

"It might be hard for you to believe, but I do love gatherings like these".
