Last year’s Al Smith Dinner–a New York charity fixture–was fraught with tension and grimaces. This year, Speaker Paul Ryan offered more lighthearted jabs at President Trump, the glitterati who typically attend the white-tie affair, and of course, Hillary Clinton and Democrats.
The press, and Steve Bannon weren’t exempt from Ryan’s joking.
“Everyone will report what happened here tonight differently. Breitbart will lead with ‘Ryan slams the president amongst liberal elites.’ The New York Times will report ‘Ryan defends the President in a state Hillary won.’ And the president will tweet, ‘300,000 at Al Smith dinner cheer mention of my name.'”
Sen. Chuck Schumer was in Washington to vote in the “vote-a-rama” on budget and other business, but Ryan slammed him anyway, not sparing the fact that Trump is a fellow New Yorker and friend.
“I know why Chuck [Schumer] has been so hard on President Trump. It’s not ideological. Chuck is just mad he lost his top donor.”
With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
The funniest jokes have more than a little truth to them. And not everyone thinks they are funny–Trump’s biggest fans on Twitter have no sense of humor about the object of their adoration.
Ryan, R-Wis., was the keynote speaker at the 72nd annual charity dinner for the Alfred E. Smith Foundation, which has close ties to the Catholic Archdiocese of New York. It’s named for the Democrats’ 1928 presidential nominee, the first Catholic nominated by a major party.
“Enough with the applause,” Paul Ryan joked. “You sound like the cabinet when Donald Trump walks into the room.” https://t.co/IlcawNaPg9

Actually, Ryan was pretty funny, and not mean about it at all. It just shows there’s people on Twitter who can’t take a joke, especially when the joke is about President Trump. Thank you Mr. Speaker for making the Al Smith dinner funny again.
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
