...and last Saturday night's annual un-televised Gridiron Club Dinner proves it!
You see, for me; it's like Pornography - I'll know it when I hear it"!
Let's just say, Trump's Joke Writer was paid well; as his idea of a joke is, "Russia, if you're listening...I hope you can find the 30,000 missing emails".
And, if it's not a joke to him; it's sarcasm, "I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue & shoot somebody & wouldn't lose voters"!
No wonder he has to be reminded to tell grieving Florida Teens, "I hear you" - he never got the 'empathy' gene & must've skipped a generation!
When I started Stand-Up Comedy in the 80s' in Washington, D.C. - I never dreamed a President would try it without a 'Tomato Guard' - you know, like at "Sizzler"!
But, we'll never know; because it wasn't televised. All I heard from the audio was 'Set-up, Punch Line' & Melania sighing in the background!
I know it wasn't VP Pence sighing - because he knows when he's President; he'll look really good following that guy!
So, I don't think it was 'Jokes' Trump was telling - maybe it was practice for his Mueller interview. In fact, I heard the last time he had to self-deprecate was right after Melania pushed his hand away!
When I heard Trump joke at the Dinner,
"I won't rule out direct talks with Kim Jong Un. As far as the risk of dealing with a madman is concerned, that's his problem; not mine"...
...I just knew the Elephant was not only in the room; he ordered Peanuts on the Half-Shell!
Mueller, if you're listening...please hurry - now Trump wants to go to North Korea & said, "I want to see if Kim has an Innie or Outie"!
