The Al Smith Dinner was supposed to be a cordial affair with both candidates getting together to bury their hatchets ( at least for the evening), but this was not the case.Both Hillary and Trump threw serious verbal punches at one another and the audience reacted to both. with boos, jeers and silence. While Hillary gave Trump 15 zings he hit back super hard with 15 zings of his own, many which stunned the audience. At the end both candidates made positive and meaningful statements which changed the mood of the evening to a positive one.
Hillary initially poked fun at herself which was well received by the crowd. When she said how she was happy about all the money raised and work done for the needy children Donald clapped unwillingly, but immediately looked down and crossed his arms over himself as a closed off gesture and repulsion for even clapping for her .
When Hillary said that she was not eleigle for sainthood but should be considered for debating Donald , As you can see by the photo above Sonald beamed as she said this.
She admitted they were moral enemies and and bitter foes as she congratulated His Eminence for bringing them together together. As she says this you can really see that she means it as her eyes squint and she has a tight angry jaw. But then she makes the jab “How did you get the governor and mayor here tonight?” which made everyone roar with laughter.
But then she makes the jibe “How did you get the governor and mayor here tonight?” which made everyone roar with laughter.
Then she busted Trump on his interrupting and encouraged him to free to stand up and say “wrong” if he didn’t like what she was saying tonight. Even though he was closed off in terms of his arms to show he wasn’t receptive to Hillary he ended up really liking what she said and couldn’t help himself from laughing.
Zing 1 – Then she got mean and said if you are not happy with the dinner, it must be” rigged” in reference to Trump saying the election was rigged.Her joke was met with silence as the audience saw that this was a below the belt jab in comparison to what she was saying previously.
Zing 2 – She gave it to Donald again as this joke was now met with serious Boo’s as she said that he gave the Statue of Liberty a 4 ( Donald’s rating scale). As you can see in the audience people frowned and sat there tight lipped. In fact Guiliani be seen angrily mouthing WHAT????
Zing 3 — Then she goes from bad to worse as she says that maybe if the statue would be a 5 if she lost the torch and the tablet and changes her hair. This was not well received and there were even more serious faces when she said this.
Hillary then goes back to tearing herself down by saying she is not as exciting as Donald and in fact boring. which garnerd laughs and which Donald enjoyed.
Zing 4- She then got some more boos when she spoke of how Doanld tore down a teleprompter as it was hard to read when translated from the original Russian. russian
Zing 5- She also got boos she said that wished Bloomeberg was speaking as she would like to hear what a billionaire had to say.
Zing 5- She cut down Rudi Guillani saying he went after rich people as a prosecutor and now he goes on Fox news and calls those same people a genius. Guiliani did not find it funny as you can see by his angry expression asn it was met with loud Boos
Zing 6- She also got loud Boos on her Kellyann Conway joke that Trump is not going to pay her because she is a contractor.
Zing 7 Boos continued to resonate as she said that Republicans can now unite around their candidate -Mike Pence.
Zing 8- More boos resulted when she said “Well either have the first woman President or a President who started a twitter war with Cher.
Zing 9- She asks how Barak Obama with get past the Muslim ban when al the Presidents a;; stand together if Donald wins.
Zing 10- She said that DOnald said he could fix it alone and she said the same thing about healthcare and it didn’t work out for her either> She was met with a stone cold silence.
Zing 11 -She said Donald is healthy as a horse-the one Vladimir Putin rides around on which people found funny.
Zing 12 Then she said how Donald told Howard Stern he didn’t like it it when women have been around for more than 35 years. No one responded to this
Zing 13 – She said that the RNC wasn’t spending a time to help either of us which was met with boos.
Zing 14. She then said Donald has to wait until after the benediction to see if the dinner is over which was also met with boos and groans.
Zing 15 Then at the end she gives a serious few moments where everything she says is an indirect zing to Donald and talks about immigration by saying how many n the room had immigrant parents who made something out of themselves. She then zings him on devisiveness as she invokes Pope Frances and talks about unifying lives. She says how we must treat one another with respect which was a clear zing to Donald.
So Hillary got in 15 or more ( if you include her final statements) Zings in relation to Donald, most of which were met with boos or silence.
In Donald’s speech he got the hardest laughs as he said it was hard for him to be humble.
and self deprecating joke which Hillary loved .
HE even said that he used his hands to build properties but His Eminence had God’s hands to build it and that “Nobody can compete with God” which garnered Trumpa huge round of applause and a thumbs up from His Eminence.
He said he was a carpenter working for his father in reference to Jesus who was aso a carpenter working for his father. This garnered huge laughs and applause.
He said it said that this ws was the most vicious campaign and looed at Hillary and asked “should be we be proud of that ? as Hillary looked at him with a tight grin.
Zing 1 He said Hillary will laugh tonight even at th at the appropriate moment which garnered laughter.
Zing 2- He really got a roar when he said that tonight Hilary bumped into him and said PARDON ME.
Zing 3 But as he continued with “let me talk about that when I get into office” he got boos.
Then he redeemed himself as he said that if Hillary gets into office she would make him the Ambassador to Iraq or Afghanistan and he could take his pick, got a huge roar of laughter.
Zing 4 He then said that he called Hillary a Nasty Woman as she rattled on an on and said he nwo didn’t think so bad of Rosie O’Donnell anymore and was starting to like Rosie a lot which brought a huge laugh from the crowd.
Zing 5 He said people were there tonight we were working to get Hillary elected – NBC, CBS ( as he pointed them out) and made the room erupt with laughter.
The room absolutely roared with laugher as he said how Michelle gave a speech that everyone praised and when Millania did the same one …
Zing 6 He likened confession to Hillary spending the 4th of July with Comey where there was a few laughs but mostly silence.
Now here is where the tone of this speech changed which shocked many in he audience as he got serious and hit very deep as he said in
Zing 7- Hillary is so corrupt. As he said this the mood of the audience changed. In fact look at the photo of the man on the right.His eyes literally bugged out of his head. Maria Bartolomo sitting in the back cocked her head to the side indicating discomfort.
Zing 8 She got Kicked off Watergate commission Maria Bartolomo seemed shocked as she turned to the person next to her as her mouth was agape.
Zing 9 He said Hillary wasn’t sure she’ld be here tonight as maybe she didn’t get an email or found out about it through Wikileaks. She was shaken by this that she widened her eyes and looked over at His Eminence sitting next to her.
Zing 10 Got the biggest boo and made His Eminence feel so uncomfortable as he looked away and touched his face as he turned bright red. Hillary was shocked and looked down and pursed her lips as she felt the low blow and the severe verbal punch Trump said that Hillary thinks it’s OK to have one policy in private and another one in public. Well aware of the negative reaction, Trump’s quick comeback was ” That’s Ok I don’t know who you are angry at you or I” as he looked directly at Hillary.
Zing 11- The final zing of the evening and biggest boo came when Trump said that tonight pretending not to hate Catholics.A loud Boo ensued.
Hillary glared at Donald as she gave a tight pursed lipped grin.
Zing 12- He sais that this is the first time Hillary is sitting down with corporate leaders and not getting paid for it.
Zing 13- Then he goes for a low hard blow as he says Hillary knows the jokes as they were give to her by Donna Brazile. Hillary did not see amused by this at all as we see here.
His blows took their toll on Hillary as he said the following:
Zing 14 “Hillary says it takes a village -which makes sense where in Haiti she has taken a number of them.
Zing 15- Hillary has forgotten more things according to her sworn testimony than any will ever ever know” As he said this silence ensued.
To get rid of the tense atmosphere in the room he smartly said ” we are having fun here tonight “. This immediately got Hillary to smile. He then went on to say how the charity does good things to support children in need and how the donner helps against ANti- Catholic bias.
There is no question that the two of them revealed how they really felt towards one another as there is a great deal of truth revealed in humor. And the truths revealed by the humor on both sides was not pretty.
