'Train Wreck'? Liberals Panic Early About White House Correspondents Dinner with Trump

Image result for liberal panic meme mediaPoynter’s James Warren (a former Chicago Tribune managing editor) has turned to the next press horror under President Trump: “What will the White House correspondents’ dinner look like under President Trump?” Warren admitted  “It seems way off — April 29, 2017 — but the election of Donald Trump is already raising questions and some fears among [White House Correspondents] association members.”

"This is unchartered [sic] territory," said a former WHCA board member who's discussed the matter with board members. "We've never had a businessman-reality TV star as president, somebody who understands the importance of this particular event."

That sounds a little odd, considering Obama and Bill Clinton understood this was an event where they could easily own the room. See the media adoration of Obama’s mic-drop routine earlier this year.

Liberal journalists now associate the dinner with journalists being too cozy with the power elite, and conservatives associate it with leftist comedians offering either a cauldron of acid for Republicans (Stephen Colbert trolling Bush) or a cauldron of acid for Republicans (Wanda Sykes sparing Obama).

Both these groups of critics would just call the whole thing off. Warren turned to the media to wonder about the future:

"Will this guy who sat here and took it in not altogether gracious fashion from President Obama sit there and take it as president of the United States while a comedian who is hired does what comedians normally do? Can he take it?" asks Bill Plante, just-retired CBS News White House correspondent and a former association president.

"And can he do (at the dinner) what presidents do, make fun of himself?"        

Plante asked exactly the wrong question. Trump came to the dinner and took his lumps from Obama and NBC's Seth Meyers in 2011. The better question is can the media take the ridicule? Can the media make fun of itself?

The question is being asked and answered everyday.
Liberal progressive democrat media sycophants are churning with (anger cum news) reports all attempting to hurt President Trump.
A media party would be a national Trump "bashional" ending in violence.
Cancel the stupid event and sponsor neighborhood get together cook out day for people to come together. The press does nothing but divide us.

Love it...was thinking the same thing...do something useful with the money and not feed the pariahical pirranahs. 

LOL This Fantastic!.....This out have the shrinks busy for years to come....Merry Christmas Everyone.

Trump  will  feign a National Issue that requires his immediate attention. He will send his wife, Ivanka, to replace him. As she speaks, her stunning beauty and confidence will leave all the liberals, who arrived in attack mode, tounge tied and drooling.

this is what is wrong with the media : they think it is always about them

The better question is can the media take the ridicule?

Can the media make fun of itself?

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
