(Newser) – He didn't get an invitation, but that didn't stop President Trump from dropping in on a wedding at his New Jersey club, to the delight of the guests. Video obtained by CNN shows the president walking into the reception Saturday at 10:30pm, at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster—the so-called summer White House—where he was spending the weekend. As guests cheered and clapped, bride Kristen Piatkowski scurries over and links hands with the "Crasher-in-Chief," per the New York Post, who gave her a kiss. Guests snapped photos and hollered "USA" as Trump waves and shakes hands. "Mr. President, looking good, baby!" someone yells.

Trump signed "Make America Great Again" hats and posed for photos with Piatkowski and groom Tucker Gladhill, which guests splashed on social media. The newlyweds were unaware of the presidential drop-in until moments earlier, when Secret Service agents made a sweep to ensure the president wouldn't get mobbed, per CNN. Trump is known for crashing weddings at his resorts, one time taking the Japanese PM with him at Mar-a-Lago. "I said, ‘Come on, Shinzo, let’s go over and say hello,'" Trump said after the February drop-in, per the Post. The adoring welcome followed a tough week for Trump.
