Clinton Reaches Out To Trump Fans 'Reconsidering' Vote

The Catholic remark and the Brazil snark were reference to information put out by WikiLeaks that are reported to be hacked emails from the Clinton campaign. Trump and Clinton are separated only by Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the Archbishop of NY.

Trump and Clinton took shots at each other in jest during the dinner.

Most eyes were on Trump, who infamously glowered through Obama's jokes at his expense during the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner and is not known for being self-deprecating.

"Some people think this will be tough for me, but the truth is I'm actually a modest person".

The 70-year-old even received uproarious laughter from the room in a fun-filled moment when he addressed his wife's speech at the Republican National Convention this summer.

First Lady Michelle Obama will attend a campaign rally on Clinton's behalf in the key state of Arizona, while Vice President Joe Biden hopes to extend Clinton's narrow lead in New Hampshire with an appearance in the city of Nashua.

"This is campaign rhetoric that they've both been out on the campaign trail saying it over and over again, and essentially what both of them had was the same stump speech that they've been giving day in and day out", she said. "My wife Melania gives the exact same speech and people get on her case, and I don't get it!" She said if she somehow gets elected, she wants me to be, without question, her ambassador to either Iraq or to Afghanistan. "How corrupt do you have to be to get kicked off the Watergate commission?" he said as the guests booed.

"If he doesn't have the courage to stand up to Donald Trump after all of this, then can you be sure that he will stand up for you when it counts?"

"Hillary believes in having one public policy and a totally different policy in private".

The boos got louder when Trump joked, "Here she is in public, pretending not to hate Catholics".

The Catholic charity dinner brought both presidential nominees together for an evening of cracking jokes, and some of Trump's initial blows landed well with the crowd.

"Everyone knows of course, Hillary's belief that it takes a village", he said, referring to the title of her 1996 book. Now, make no mistake, by doing that he is threatening our democracy... "But, as the saying goes, if you can't beat them, go on Fox News and call them a genius", Clinton quipped while the camera panned to a less-than-pleased Giuliani.

The dinner was opened by its namesake's descendent, Al Smith IV, who started off strong, comedically speaking.

Clinton has staked much of her fall strategy on characterising her opponent as unfit for the presidency. It's not clear which is the more appropriate description, but even if you think Trump's meltdowns were the decisive turning points, Clinton employed a brilliant strategy for baiting Trump into losing his shit in front of a hundred million viewers.

Asked at the debate whether he'd accept the outcome, Trump said: "I will tell you at the time".

"It's awesome I'm up here (at the lectern) after Donald".
