You thought it was all over, but Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will have to face off one more time — and they are supposed to play nice. The Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner in New York is a white-tie gala that, in presidential election years, is a chance for the two candidates to dine together and make self-deprecating jokes. Only Trump is not so good at the self-deprecation, and Clinton, whatever you may say about her, is not known for her humour.
The dinner will be held Thursday night in New York, and it is difficult to imagine that less than 24 hours after Trump called Clinton “a nasty woman” and Clinton called Trump “unfit to be president”, they’ll be happy breaking bread together. New York’s Cardinal Timothy Dolan will be the only buffer between the warring parties, but even Christian charity might not be enough to stop an actual food fight breaking out.
