- Here are the best jokes from Trump's speech, according to the White House pool report compiled by Yahoo News correspondent Hunter Walker.
On senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner losing his security clearance:"Before I get started, I wanted to apologize for arriving a little bit late. You know, we were late tonight because Jared could not get through security. ... Ivanka, you've got to do something."
On the slew of news and scandals:"It's been really another calm week at the White House. We finally have it running like a fine-tuned machine."
On Vice President Mike Pence's sense of humor:"Some of you may think that Mike is not a comedian, but he is one of the best straight men you're ever going to meet. ... He is straight!"
On Pence's morning habits:"He's showing a particularly keen interest in the news these days. He starts out each morning asking everybody, 'Has he been impeached yet?'"
On Attorney General Jeff Sessions:"Attorney General Sessions is here with us tonight. ... I offered him a ride over and he recused himself. ... But that's OK."
On former White House strategist Steve Bannon:"CNN, it lost a tremendous amount of credibility this year, but they also lost one of their true stars, the guy who got you the most scoops, inside info ... your really very best reporter. There was nobody like him — Steve Bannon. That guy leaked more than the Titanic."
On former aide Omarosa Manigault:"Somehow, we're still doing great even without Omarosa. ... By the way, I always knew, someday, you're going to fire her. Is that the worst? By the way, Omarosa, you're the worst!"
On White House turnover:"So many people have been leaving the White House. It's actually been really exciting and invigorating. … I like turnover. I like chaos. It really is good. Now the question everyone keeps asking is, 'Who's going to be the next to leave? Steve Miller or Melania?' ... That is terrible honey, but you love me, right? ... I wont tell you what she said. ... She said, 'Behave.'"
On the #FreeMelania hashtag about first lady Melania Trump:"I just don't understand why everyone on the internet and in the media keeps screaming, 'Hashtag Free Melania.' Free Melania. ... Like a number one hashtag. Free Melania. She's actually having a great time."
On House minority leader Nancy Pelosi: "Build the wall! Nancy Pelosi has been trying to come up with a line that's equal. And her line that she announced last week is, 'Mow The Grass!' It doesn't work. ... Mow the frickin' grass. ... That's going to stop MS-13. ... Mow that frickin' grass! ... Man, she's crazy, but she's a fine woman. She is. I actually like Nancy Pelosi."
On former Vice President Joe Biden's potential 2020 bid:"There's talk about Joe Biden, Sleepy Joe, getting into the race. You know what he said, 'I want to take him behind the barn.' ... Just trust me, I would kick his ass. ... Boy, would he be easy."
On the North Korean conflict and Sen. Elizabeth Warren:"She said that Rex Tillerson and I should sit down with the leaders of Iran and North Korea and smoke a peace pipe. ... I didn't like that Pocahontas."
On the Republican tax law:"Melania is even getting some major benefits from it. She can finally claim me as an adult dependent."
On his abundant Twitter use:"If I didn't have Twitter how would Gen. [chief of staff John] Kelly and Gen. [national security adviser H.R.] McMaster know what it is that they're supposed to say that day. They wouldn't know. They'd have no idea."
On his media habits:"I better wrap it up. I have to be up early tomorrow morning — six o'clock — to be listening to Fox and Friends. ... But I do want to say this is one of the best times I can ever remember having with the media.
