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

“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.
