Trump and Clinton went after each other hard at Al Smith Charity Dinner — but only one was booed


Boos rained on Donald Trump at the Al Smith charity dinner where he and Hillary Clinton appeared together, one day after their third debate.

The dinner, which is traditionally done as a roast where guests take shots at each other, benefits Catholic charities, which was the setup for one of his most brutal jokes of the night.

“We’ve learned so much from WikiLeaks. For instance, Hillary believes that it’s vital to deceive the people by having one public policy and a totally different policy in private,” Trump said when he took the stage. “For example, here she is tonight, in public, pretending not to hate Catholics.”

The quip drew thunderous boos from the decidedly pro-Clinton, New York City crowd.

“Hillary is so corrupt, she got kicked off the Watergate Commission…How corrupt to you have to be to get kicked off the Watergate commission? Pretty corrupt,” he said in another joke that was met with raucous heckling.

It didn’t start out that way. The crowd loved his joke at the expense of his wife Melania earlier in the speech.

You know the president told me to stop whining, but I really have to say the media is more biased this year than ever before. You want the proof? Michelle Obama gives a speech, and everyone loves it. It’s fantastic. They think she’s absolutely great. My wife, Melania, gives the exact same speech, and people get on her case! And I don’t get it. I don’t know why,” he quipped.

Clinton’s jokes at Trump, though corny, were met with hearty laughter.

“People look at the Statue of Liberty, and they see a proud history of a nation of immigrants — a beacon of hope for people around the world,” she said. “Donald looks at the Statue of Liberty and sees a 4. Maybe a 5 if she loses the torch and tablet and changes her hair,”
