Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were the keynote speakers at the Alfred E. Smith charity dinner in New York on Thursday night.

And things definitely got a little awkward. During election years, the dinner serves as a roast featuring the major presidential candidates. But both Clinton and Trump got booed more than once for their jabs at each other.

"Donald really is healthy as a horse. You know, the one Vladimir Putin rides around on," Clinton said.

"Hillary is so corrupt, she got kicked off the Watergate commission," Trump said.

And no scandal from the election was off-limits.

"People look at the Statue of Liberty and they see a proud symbol of our history as a nation of immigrants, a beacon of hope for people around the world. Donald looks at the Statue of Liberty and sees a four," Clinton said.

"Hillary believes that it's vital to deceive the people by having one public policy and a totally different policy in private. For example, here she is tonight, in public, pretending not to hate Catholics," Trump said.

But hey, at least it was all for a good cause. All of the money raised at the annual dinner goes to children in need.
