Summary: Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both attended the Al Smith Dinner, and each gave a speech. The Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner is a tradition in American presidential politics and marks the last time the two nominees share a stage. While both candidate's poked fun of each other, Trump started to deliver harsh remarks about Hillary. Trumps remarks started turning into attacks and the crowd booed him. Christine Quinn, the former speaker of New York's city council, said that she has never witnessed a crowd boo at an Al Smith Dinner ever. Hillary delivered a speech also but did not get booed. 

Connections: This charity dinner dates back to the year 1945, when the first Al Smith charity dinner took place. This dinner has always been a US tradition where the two candidates spend there last times sharing a stage.

 Questions:
  • Was it appropriate for Donald Trump to make such remarks about Hillary at a charity dinner? What purpose do you think this charity dinner serves?
  • Will voters change their mind by listening to the speeches given by the candidates?
  • What purpose do you think this charity dinner serves?

  1. I think Trump should go to jail for life for this. Hillary Clinton is a woman, and men should always act politely towards women, and hold doors open for them, and act very chivalrous like in the 1900's. The fact that Trump is accusing Clinton of disliking Catholics is very sexist and mysogonistic, and the fact that he is a male saying this to a lady proves that he hates all women and should go to jail for life, hopefully where there are many mysogonistic males locked up as well. #feministpower

    2. How is him saying Hillary dislikes catholics sexist? I don't see the connection. I also agree it was stupidly inappropriate though.

  3. It was very inappropriate of Trump to make these remarks at the charity dinner. When this first took place, it was a where the two candidates spent their last times sharing a stage, but now, the candidates are just taking opportunities to talk trash about their opponents.

  4. You have to remember that this dinner is a more lighthearted event. Candidates traditionally have always used it to poke fun and at this particular one, both candidates did. I do think jailing Trump is just a bit too far. Yes he has little to no respect for women and his comments did go too far, but that is no reason to put someone in jail. Actions, not words are a cause for jailing. (however there are things rising about Trump). Jail for life...honestly, that's not something to do just fore remarks. I do agree it was very inappropriate and in no way am I a Trump supporter but people are taking this too seriously

  5. It was not appropriate for Trump to make those remarks about Hillary, especially at a charity dinner. These speeches most likely wont change anyone's minds, because it is so far into the election.

  7. I do not think it was appropriate for Donald Trump to even bring up politics at a Charity event. This event is not for you to boast your ideas, it is for charity. Any responsible man should understand and respect that. I do not think the Voters will change their minds, if anything they will look down at the lack of self control from certain candidates. This charity dinner is for publicity and to promote a campaign. But it should still be more focused on the charity then the progress of a campaign.

  8. I do not think it was appropriate at all for Trump to say those harsh remarks about Hillary. In no situation it is okay to do that. I also think with no one ever being booed at this charity dinner, this will have a very big, negative effect on Trump.

  11. I find it extremely inappropriate and disgusting for Trump to make these comments about Clinton, especially at a charity dinner. AT this point, I hope some Trump supporters are changing their minds about him, although that seems unlikely.

  12. It was most definitely inappropriate for Trump to make those comments, especially on the stage he is on. I don't know why in the world he thinks it is okay to do so. If the crowd boo'd for the first time ever, that should tell America something.

  13. It was inappropriate for Trump to say those things about Hilary especially during something that is special to political people and is a part of getting their names out in the election. I do think it was a bit much for the crowd to boo, but I do understand why the crowd did.

  14. It was not right for Trump to say those types of things about Hillary because it was not a debate, it was just a dinner they both were invited to. They were also surrounded by religious people and by offending her like that is very rude and embarrassing for him.
