President Trump has agreed to speak remotely Thursday at the New York Archdioceses first ever virtual Al Smith fundraising event amid the coronavirus pandemic, church officials said Monday evening.
The Archdiocese has also extended an invitation to former Vice President Joe Biden, who is Catholic, and is hopeful he will also agree to speak at the 75th annual fundraiser, the first being held remotely and not taking place at a location with speakers and hundreds of guests.
Biden just called a lid for the day. He was having coughing fits yesterday so I bet he doesn’t show tonight.
They’ll be having virtual food, and sending in virtual contributions in—what?—bitcoin?
If they haven’t been offering Biden communion. . .why would they offer him an invitation to speak. CINO - Catholic in Name Only
I remember Trump from the last Al Smith dinner in 2016. He made a few jokes, but generally was serious. He understood the gravity of what would happen to America if he were to lose to Hillary.
Yes, I saw that posted and searched for the LIVE stream of the event for the Side Bar.
Do you remember that time when Donald Trump fricasseed Hillary Clinton at the Al Smith Dinner just before the election? Yea, that was AWESOME!
He was dead serious. NO joking around as I recall and people like O ‘Reilly criticized him.
I think Trump will be funny tonight, but who knows, he may offer a grim view of the country under Biden and perhaps might point out the hypocrisy of people like him and Pelosi, Catholics who are pro abortion on demand.
I remember it as when Bush sowed up the election against Gore with a simple head nod.

He was laughing at all of Trump's jokes and then suddenly realized the camera was on him. Probably hasn't been invited to a cocktail party since.
Holy crap, that’s up there with Clinton at Ron Brown’s Funeral.
Did we watch the same speech? The audience (including Hillary) were laughing through the first half, at least.
Second half, the elites realized they were in trouble if Trump won....
Are you kidding?...that was a shark fest with blood in the water with lots of fake laughter hiding the fact that many were ready to bear their fangs at Trump and vice versa!
Joe’s speech should begin, “Bless me father, for I have sinned”.
“Biden just called a lid for the day. He was having coughing fits yesterday so I bet he doesnt show tonight.”
Caught the covid?
I think he was responding to the sudden change in tone from Trump. Trump started out with some good natured ribbing aimed at Hillary, then started inserting some serious accusations at her. The whole room was laughing then suddenly gasped when he started delving into “off limit” subject matter.
