A Catholic Slow Roast

by Joan E.

There just was a charity dinner,
Featuring one bully, one sinner.
Self-deprecating theme,
Not quite proud Donald's dream.
Count down nineteen days 'til a winner.



At the Al Smith Catholic Charities dinner in New York on Thursday, Clinton poked fun at herself as someone who had needed a "miracle" to get through the debates, and who had missed her "nap" and usual high "speaker fees" to attend the event. The best Trump could do was sacrifice his wife on the altar by reminding the audience that at the Republican Convention she copied part of a well-regarded speech by Michelle Obama.
