NEW YORK — Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton took the stage at the Alfred E. Smith Foundation dinner in New York Thursday night, taking a break from campaigning and working to prove they still have a sense of humor.

Donald Trump spoke first and surprised some by making himself the butt of a few jokes.

"[Hillary] said if somehow she gets elected, she wants me to be without question either her ambassador to either Iraq or Afghanistan. It's my choice." When the jokes turned to Hillary, she seemed to take it like a good sport. "Hillary accidentally bumped into me and she very civilly said, 'Pardon me.'"

Then Hillary took the mic, poking fun at her own personality.

"I understand that I'm not known for my sense of humor. That's why it did take a village to write these jokes." But, of course, she took some shots at Trump too. "People look at the statue of liberty and they see a proud symbol. Donald looks at the statue of liberty and sees a 4, maybe a 5 if she loses the torch and the tablet and changes her hair."

Let's just hope when this election is long behind us, we can all look back and laugh.
