If you thought that the line between the presidential debates and the SNL parodies of the debates this year were already more blurred than ever, this will probably reach a whole new level of life and art imitating each other.
During an election year, it’s customary tradition for the candidates to politely roast each other while only being separated by the seat of the Cardinal of New York, Timothy Dolan as part of the big charity event for children in poverty known as The Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Center.
It’s a private white tie dinner being held tonight and thus you won’t get to see it on TV. Still, rest assured that you’ll probably hear about it on social media this evening. One can only imagine that Clinton will want to come off cooler than her Pokemon GO joke (and she could do so by doing any of the thousands of jokes leveled at Trump over the last couple of decades) and Trump, having already stooped to childish and grotesque behavior in the debates, will likely espouse his godawful privilege even more with some tasteless one-liners and offensive act outs.
