From a TPM Prime member: "Trump's only mildly funny line was the one about Melania — so the closest he gets to "self-deprecating" is a dig at his wife. Getting booed at a charity roast — another first for Donald Trump. I just went back to McCain's presentation — really funny, Obama enjoying it as much as anyone. Mitt Romney's was just hysterical. How does he prepare for the debate? 'First, refrain from alcohol for 65 years before the debate...' And later, talking about the campaign against Obama: 'Fortunately, we don't carry the burden of disliking one another. Our president has had some very fine and gracious moments. Don't tell anyone I said so, but our 44th president has many gifts and a beautiful family that would make any man proud.' Obama was also very funny in 2012. Trump's performance — well, I thought, not a glimmer of light in that poor man's soul."
