US president Donald Trump jokes about his impeachment, mocks media
 
(Washington, Mar 03, 2018):US President Donald Trump joked about his own impeachment and mocked several media organisations at a high-profile gathering of journalists and politicians.

Arriving late at the Gridiron Club's white-tie dinner, at which dozens of journalists and politicians gather to trade barbs, Trump said he was late because his son-in-law Jarred Kushner could not get through the security. The security clearance of Kushner was recently downgraded.

“Ivanka, you’ve got to do something!” Trump said. Both Ivanka and Kushner were seated at the head table along with the First Lady.

The president talked about planning his remarks and said he discussed them with the “funniest” people in the White House, including Vice President Mike Pence. Trump called Pence a good “straight man.” “He is straight!” said Trump.

Trump went on to joke that Pence begins every day asking, “Is he impeached yet?” “You can’t be impeached when there’s no crime. Put that down!” Trump said. Noting that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was in attendance, he said he offered to bring Sessions to the dinner.

“I offered him a ride over and he recused himself,” said Trump. Towards the end of his speech, Trump talked about Deferred Action Against Childhood Arrival. “I love the Dreamers. We are going to help the Dreamers,” he said. Trump said “we’re all working together” on DACA. “I hope that something’s going to happen,” he said. He then went on to mock several media organisations including “the failing New York Times” and CNN.

He said CNN recently lost its “very best reporter” in former White House strategist Steve Bannon. He took aim at his favourite target - media - “Fake News CNN”. He called Fox News the “fourth branch of government.” And he made fun of Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr, who stepped down in December as publisher of The New York Times, saying: “I inherited millions.

Arthur inherited billions of dollars, and he turned it into millions.” The president also poked fun at Stephen K. Bannon, his former chief strategist, who many inside the White House believe was the source for some of the nastiest parts of the recent book by Michael Wolff.

He continued by describing the recent turnover at the White House as “exciting and invigorating.” “I like turnover. I like chaos. It really is good,” said Trump. Trump then joked about who would be next to leave the White House and questioned whether it would be “Steve Miller or Melania.” He later referenced the #FreeMelania hashtag.

“She’s actually having a great time,” Trump said of his wife. Trump brought up his recent calls for tariffs and suggested they were good for “dying industries” that have asked the White House for “protection”. However, Trump added that it might be “too late” for the “print media. Trump also brought up “talk” former Vice President Joe Biden, or as he put it, “Sleepy Joe”, might run for president in 2020.

Trump referenced prior comments Biden made about wanting to take him out behind a barn. While his speech was in joking tone, on North Korea, he quipped that he would not rule out direct talks with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. However, he said it was Kim who faced “the risk of dealing with a madman”. He also said North Korea had “called up” and asked to begin talks but that he responded with “you have to denuke” first.
