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!!
