The 2016 Al Smith Dinner, a HUGE annual New York city fundraiser for Catholic causes (started in 1945), was ‘one for the ages’ with both presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton & Donald Trump, delivering speeches (or ‘roasts’ to be more accurate) — as is a longstanding custom on election years.

This year, i.e., 2017, the keynote speaker was House Speaker, Paul Ryan, a practicing Catholic from Wisconsin, his father of Irish descent. Ryan, as was to be expected, did make some jokes at the expense of Trump. Whether he cleared them with Trump ahead of the dinner has yet to be established. We will have to see if Trump reacts.

But, here is the whole story — so to speak, video and transcript.

This is the FULL COVERAGE video, including the opening musical segment by James Taylor (starting at around the 38 minute mark).

Obama’s 30 minute speech starts at ~ 1:13:58 mark; i.e., one hour thirteen minutes into it.

Good ceremony. Haven’t watched all of it. But, saw bits.

Enjoy.
