In the shocking results of Tuesday night’s election, Donald Drumpf won the presidency of the United States. Take as long as you need for that to sink in, but we’re switching gears to focus on the future Flotus, Melania Drumpf. While her tenure as first lady is expected to include fighting cyberbullying and getting involved with women’s health issues, it’s also going to include a lot of high-fashion moments. If her campaign style is any indication, we’re in for sleek designs, bell sleeves and hopefully many, many more pussy-bow blouses to come. Below, her chicest »

Donald Trump broke tradition with his remarks at the annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Dinner in New York City, delivering a rough takedown of his political rival, Hillary Clinton, instead of the light-hearted humor the dinner is typically known for.
Trump, who spoke before Clinton, notably lacked the self-deprecating humor that previous presidential candidates have offered at the fundraiserÂ meant to raise money for Catholic Charities.
“This is the first time ever, ever, that HillaryÂ is sitting down, speaking to major corporate leaders and not getting paid for it,” he said, receiving gasps and boos.

Oh, you thought Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were done trading verbal jabs? After one explosive (and final) presidential debate last night in Las Vegas, the two candidates reunited in New York City for the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Dinner, a fundraiser supporting Catholic charities, attended by some of our country's most elite members. Oh, and Trump and Clinton sat just one seat away from each other. The person sitting in-between them? Cardinal Dolan. Yes, please put a Catholic authority between these two. However, instead of throwing political punches at each other, Clinton and Trump each took the podium to throw punchlines in what became a (mostly) lighthearted and entertaining roast. Each »

Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner in New York, a white-tie gala that also serves as a showcase for presidential politics.

Donald Trump got booed tonight while appearing with Hillary Clinton at the Annual Alfred E. Smith charity dinner in Manhattan, a rarity for the 71-year old event. In fairness, the white-tie Waldorf Astoria clambake, named after four-term NY Governor and one-time Dem White House hopeful Alfred Smith, is traditionally an event at which the two presidential candidates show off their comedy chops. But, of course, this year's candidates have no comedy chops. Trump started… »
A few of Donald Trump’s jokes had trouble landing at the Alfred E. Smith Foundation Dinner on Thursday night.
At the New York event — a fundraiser for Catholic charities connected to the Archdiocese of New York — Trump said of Hillary Clinton, “Here she is, in public, pretending not to hate Catholics,” citing WikiLeaks revelations. This drew the loudest boos from the mostly Catholic audience.
But even before the joke, the reception to Trump’s speech was frosty. In an event that, in the past, has served as an occasion for candidates to poke fun at one another, as well as themselves, Trump went into attack mode, saying, “She got kicked off the Watergate commission. How corrupt do you have to be to get kicked off the Watergate commission? Pretty corrupt.”

Donald Trump was booed at a Catholic charity dinner in New York City Thursday night after his gentle roasting of Hillary Clinton — seated just feet away from him on the dais — turned vicious. “We learned so much from WikiLeaks. For example, Hillary believes that it’s vital to deceive the people by having one public policy and a totally different policy in private,” Trump said at the Alfred E. Smith charity dinner hosted by New York Catholic Cardinal Timothy Dolan at the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan. “For example here she is tonight in public pretending not to hate Catholics.” Every four. »

It began in 1960, when two bitterly opposed presidential hopefuls — Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy — stopped by to break bread and crack wise at each other's expense. Ever since, the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner has become a campaign tradition, a chance for candidates and voters to enjoy a brief reprieve from all the mudslinging for, well, even more mudslinging — only this time, it's meant to elicit laughs. But that was before Donald Trump came along. "The political playbook is thrown out the window," says Mark Katz, a veteran speechwriter who penned gags for
