Was it a roast? Republican governor calls Trump ‘f–king crazy,’ at DC power-players dinner

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu called former President Donald Trump, a fellow Republican, “f*cking crazy” during the Gridiron Club dinner on Saturday — the prestigious dinner features the media elite rubbing shoulders with DC power players in what amounts to a comedic roast.

“You know, he’s probably going to be the next president,” Sununu said of Trump, according to Politico. He went on to talk about Trump’s “experience,” “passion,” “sense of integrity” and the “rationale” he brought to his tweets before yelling after a strategic pause: “Nah, I’m just kidding! He’s f*cking crazy!”

“The press often will ask me if I think Donald Trump is crazy,” he further told the entertained audience. “And I’ll say it this way: I don’t think he’s so crazy that you could put him in a mental institution. But I think if he were in one, he ain’t getting out!”

Sununu also spoke about a presidential limo ride with Trump when the president visited him in New Hampshire, saying Trump suddenly stopped talking and pointed out the window at people lining the road holding American flags, telling him, “They LOVE me!” As might be expected, Sununu then claimed that the man Trump pointed to held a sign that read, “F*CK TRUMP.”

Of course, Sununu was singing a different tune when Trump was in office. Though he has said Trump has “a very different style,” the governor supported his policies.

“We have the most booming economy in the Northeast right now, and that’s not by accident because the policies get results. And as governor, that’s all I care about: getting results,” Sununu said in Feb. 2020.

For more than 100 years, every president has addressed the Gridiron, according to The Washington Post. President Biden did not attend this year, but did send a video — the past two dinners were canceled due to the pandemic.

“I get the sense even if I’m not at the dinner, I’m going to be on the menu,” Biden reportedly said, adding, “I really wanted to be with you tonight, but the truth is I just couldn’t find a 7-hour-and-37-minutes gap in my schedule.”

There were only two Republican senators in attendance, Susan Collins (R-ME) and the retiring Roy Blunt (R-MO), and there were no House GOP members present, according to the Post.

A list of the VIPs in attendance, according to the paper, helps provide a feel for the room Saturday night. Among those at the Renaissance Washington hotel were Attorney General Merrick Garland, White House press secretary Jen Psaki, New York Mayor Eric Adams, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Democrat lawmakers on the guest list included Democratic Sens. Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), Edward J. Markey (Mass.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), and U.S. Reps. Adam B. Schiff (Calif.) and Debbie Dingell (Mich.).

Politico shared other Republicans targeted by Sununu:

— On VIRGINIA THOMAS’ now-infamous text messages to MARK MEADOWS: “We know she may be extreme, but let’s face it: when it comes to texting, she’s no ANTHONY WEINER. And you guys thought we forgot about that freakshow.”

— And TED CRUZ hanging out with the People’s Convoy: “Nobody really knows why [the Convoy protesters are] in Washington in the first place — which pretty much describes Ted himself, right? … What is with Ted? You see that beard? … He looks like MEL GIBSON after a DUI or something.”

— On Trump ally and MyPillow CEO MIKE LINDELL: “This guy’s head is stuffed with more crap than his pillows. And by the way, I was told not to say this, but I will: His stuff is crap. I mean, it’s absolute crap. You only find that kind of stuff in the Trump Hotel.”
