Landrieu roasts Trump at DC Gridiron Club dinner

In a rare move the president and first lady Melania will mingle with D.C. journalists at the white-tie dinner with D.C. journalists

Student took his father's gun, killed both parents in Central Michigan dorm, police say: Alex Horton of the Washington Post writes: Central Michigan University police called Diva Jeneen Davis on Thursday with a message of concern about the behavior of her son, James Davis Jr., saying that perhaps it would be best if she and her husband came to pick him up.

Trump also took aim at one of his favorite targets: the press, who he described as his "opposition party."

Jared Kushner was also ribbed on, with Trump saying he was late because "Jared couldn't get through security".

He also suggested Vice President Mike Pence was just biding his time until Trump was impeached, The Hill reported.

But Trump added that Pence was bothering him recently with his focus on news reports.

The president's one-liners contrasted with his usual stance toward the media, which he often accuses of bias against his administration and family.

Trump skipped the dinner previous year, and also declined to attend the higher profile White House Correspondents Association event.

The event was the Gridiron Dinner, a white-tie event held by the oldest journalism organization in Washington, the Gridiron Club, which dates back to 1885. Even people that have been very strong opponents, I've developed a lot of respect. "That's why I accepted".

"Before I get started, I wanted to apologize for arriving a little bit late", Trump began, according to pool reporters. "That guy leaked more than the Titanic!".

Earlier in the week, Trump raised eyebrows by describing some local deputies who responded to the Parkland shooting as cowards, and claiming that he would have run into the high school building to try and stop the shooting, even without a weapon. "It really is good".

Central Michigan University Shooter Arrested
Davis , Jr., states his cousin is picking him up the next morning for spring break and that he is going back to his room to sleep. Davis allegedly fired shots on campus at Campbell Hall, a dorm on campus on Friday and killed two people, who are not students.


"Now the question everybody keeps asking is, who is going to be the next to leave, Steve Miller (immigration hawk and Trump's speechwriter) or Melania?" [Adviser] Steve Miller or Melania?' ... By the way, I always knew, someday, you're going to fire her.

Trump said he had looked forward to attending the event and appeared to enjoy the show, clapping and laughing at the skits.

"In one job I had to manage a cutthroat cast of characters desperate for TV time, totally unprepared for their roles and their jobs, and each week afraid of having their asses fired". The president said he would sign paperwork detailing these plans this week. They said, 'Can you do this?' And I told them not to worry.

"Maybe positive things are happening", Trump said.

Umm, I hope that was a joke.

But he also quipped: "As far as the risk of dealing with a madman is concerned, that's his problem, not mine".

If a meeting does happen, it would be the first between the Trump administration and North Korea, with the two countries now in a standoff over the North's development of nuclear weapons that may be capable of hitting the US mainland. The tone of the event, which is not televised, is usually irreverent, and Trump pulled no punches when it came to some of his least favoured publications.

Over the last month, the White House has seen the dismissal of Staff Secretary Rob Porter over spousal abuse allegations and reports - denied by Trump and others - that national security adviser H.R. McMaster is on his way out.

The event featured journalists in costumes satirizing U.S. politics and the White House culture in raucous skits, songs and speeches.
