Taking a break from the nastiest campaign in recent memory, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton came together Thursday for a New York white-tie soiree intended to bring some levity just weeks before the Nov. 8 vote.The candidates shared some laughs but several of Trump's jokes turned sour and drew boos at the annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, a fund-raiser for Catholic charities that is normally one of the more lighthearted events on the presidential campaign calendar.Trump traded punchlines for caustic barbs aimed at Clinton's hacked emails, calling the Democratic candidate "corrupt".Clinton later slung a zinger at Trump's penchant for judging women harshly based on their appearance, envisioning how Trump might rank the Statue of Liberty.Besides the two presidential candidates, the guest list included two former New York mayors -- Michael Bloomberg and Rudy Giuliani.Bloomberg has rallied behind Clinton while Giuliani is one of Trump's most prominent campaign surrogates.
