TRUMP IS RIGHT TO SKIP THE CORRESPONDENTS' DINNER

The White House Correspondents' Association dinner is the embodiment of the establishment. It has evolved into a celebrity studded event that mixes entertainment and politics in a toxic combination. It represents the elitist bubble at its worst. It's an event that celebrates the importance of the media and the unimportance of the people.

It's against everything that President Trump stands for. And he's entirely right to skip it.

Attending would have been a disaster. Dumping it once again sidelines the core of the media establishment. It transforms the story from which media associations or organizations are pulling out, to Trump's rejection of it. It's also another opportunity for the media to fulminate about private grudges that the country doesn't care about.

You can't blame the President for not going.

Who in their right mind would want to subject themselves to being surrounded with lying scumbags for even one minute, let alone an hour or so.

Mr. President, on behalf of all of us deplorables, stay far away from the libtard press trash.

Unlike the previous resident on Pennsylvania Avenue, President Trump will be working.

when will the media learn to just report the news and not make it all about them 

Why would he attend this.  The media is the enemy.

Trump is so different from Obama I can hardly believe it!  Obama never made a right decision, Trump almost never makes a bad decision.  When he does he corrects it.  Obama doubled down on his bad decisions and made them 10 times worse.  Obama said Trump had no experience and would make a lousy president.  The fact that Obama said that about Trump tells me that Trump will make a great president.  You could bet on the fact that what ever Obama says it will be wrong.  You can bet on the fact that what ever Trump says will be right.   

Douglas, you are exactly right !!!!   One thing I have noticed about Obama and the liberals, is that when they say something , the opposite is always true.   And that is the facts !!!!!!!!

Here what I am saying and you will notice also !

Next year it may be known as the Former White House Correspondents' Association dinner

I am proud of TRUMP!

SCREW THE WHCA DINNER!  IT'S ATTENDANCE HAS NOTHING MORE THAN THE "DESPECABLE, LYING, SENSELESS SCUM" THAT MAKE UP THE MEDIA!  THE DEPLORABLES SHOW TOTAL DISDANE FOR THE GROUP.  HOPE ALL IN ATTENDANCE GET DISINTARY FROM THE MEAL! 

Wise move. . . . . .President Trump knows exactly what is going on and knows how to handle it !!!!!!!

What a tear jerky for sure when the First Lady read The Lord's Prayer at Melbourne, Florida rally.

Everyone needs to watch !!!!!!!                 I'm sure the Lord was pleased !!!!!!!!!!!!

Trump's no fool - and he's not bent on self-destruction, either!!  Wonder what they'll say and do WITHOUT anyone (please, God!) from the Trump Administration to diss and bat about? In the past - even with W - there had been, at least, a modicum of respect and even humor.  But with Trump, it's become totally crazy!  Keep on keeping on, Mr. President - the only ones who love you are THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
