The Best Jokes Trump And Hillary Made About Each Other At The Al Smith Dinner

Sure the debates were "funny" but this time around the jokes were actually intentional.

The Best Jokes Trump And Hillary Made About Each Other At The Al Smith Dinner

The Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner – aka the Al Smith Dinner – is an annual white tie fundraiser for Catholic charities supporting children. Hosted in New York City, the presidential candidates are also invited ever election year and they get to sit almost next to each other, with just the cardinal sitting between them. It’s kind of like the White House Correspondents Dinner with all of the jokes though, because Hillary and Trump were spitting straight fire at each other last week. Not all of the jokes were good…but here are some of the highlights from the night:

Some of Trump's best jokes:

“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!”

“This is the first time ever, ever, that Hillary is sitting down and speaking to major corporate leaders and not getting paid for it.”

“Just before taking the dais, Hillary accidentally bumped into me and she very civilly said, 'Pardon me,' And I very politely replied, 'Let me talk to you about that after I get into office.'"

“Listening to Hillary rattle on, and on, and on, I don’t think so badly of Rosie O’Donnell anymore. In fact, I am actually starting to like Rosie a lot.”

"The Cardinal and I, we both have impressive buildings on Fifth Avenue. His is much more impressive than mine. I built mine with my own beautifully formed hands, while his was built with the hands of God. And nobody can compete with God.”

“The truth is I’m actually a modest person, very modest. It’s true, in fact many people tell me that modesty is perhaps my best quality – even better than my temperament.”

And some of Hillary's:

“Donald looks at the statue of liberty and sees a four… maybe a five if she loses the torch and tablet and changes her hair.”

“But Donald really is as healthy as a horse, you know, the one Vladimir Putin rides around on.”

“The cardinal is saying I’m not eligible for sainthood, but getting through these three debates with Donald has to count as a miracle, so I guess I’m up against the highest, hardest, stained glass ceiling.”

“This is such a special event that I took a break from my rigorous nap schedule to be here.”

“And because this is a friendly dinner for such a great cause, Donald, if at any time you don’t like what I’m saying, feel free to stand up and shout ‘Wrong!’ while I’m talking."

“And, Donald, after listening to your speech, I will also enjoy listening to Mike Pence deny that you ever gave it."

“People say… I’m boring compared to Donald. But I’m not boring at all. In fact, I’m the life of every party I attend. And I’ve been to three!”

“Let’s come together, remember what unites us, and just rip on Ted Cruz”

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
