NYC Cardinal Timothy Dolan sat down with the TODAY show to spill the tea on last night’s Alfred E Smith Dinner, at which Donald Trump was booed for turning caustic against Hillary Clinton.

Dolan sat between the candidates as the host of the annual gala, which benefited Catholic charities.
Dolan said that in private he asked the candidates to pray together and after the prayer Trump told Clinton, “You know you are one tough and talented woman. This has been a great experience, the whole campaign – as tough as it’s been.”
And Clinton responded, “Donald, whatever happens, we need to work together afterwards.”

Trump changed his tune in public. “Hillary is so corrupt that she got kicked off the Watergate commission,” he told the crowd.
“We’ve learned so much from WikiLeaks,” he added. “For example, Hillary believes that it’s vital to deceive the people by having one public policy and a totally different policy in private.”
It got worse.
“Here she is in public pretending not to hate Catholics,” Trump continued.
