While speaking at a rally in Pennsylvania celebrating his 100th day in office, the 70-year-old president slammed the event that happens to be going on at the same time in Washington DC.
“A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation’s capitol right now,” Trump said as the crowds booed. “They are gathered together for a White House Correspondents’ Dinner without the president.”
Trump continued: “I could not possibly be more thrilled to be more than 100 miles away from the Washington swamp … with much better people.”
Trump is the first president to skip out on a White House Correspondents’ Dinner since President Ronald Reagan in 1981 as he recovered from a gun shot wound.
Dr. David Dao and United Airlines have come to "an amicable settlement" after he was forcibly removed from one of their airplanes. Dr. Dao received injuries after being removed from the airline when it was overbooked and he refused to give up his seat. United has taken "full responsibility" for the incident.

The 49-year-old actress is backing Missouri students as they fight to protect LGBTQ youth rights within their state schools.
Julia and 16-year-old student Miguel Johnson attended the GLSEN Respect Awards to talk about keeping LGTBQ protections in place under Donald Trump‘s presidency.
“As a parent, I want all students to feel safe and protected at school, and I stand with Miguel and trans students across the country. You are loved,” Julia told People mag. “Before Trump got elected, he always said he was totally for LGBTQ students, because they’re people too and they deserve an education. And then after he got elected, he was basically like, ‘Just kidding, I lied.’”
In Missouri, the trans-inclusive Title IX guidance has been revoked and new anti-trans state bills are being introduced.
In the meantime, Miguel says he will continue to fight to protect fellow LGTBQ students.
“I’m still trying to figure out what I can do to feel okay and how to make my friends and fellow students feel okay, and honestly I don’t have an answer,” Miguel said. “There’s not an easy solution, especially when the person with the most power is messing stuff up. “
Will Ferrell is bringing back one of his signature Saturday Night Live impressions!
The 49-year-old actor hit the stage at Samantha Bee’s Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner dressed as former President George W Bush on Saturday night (April 29) at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington DC.
For the longest time I was considered the worst president of all time — that has changed,” Will said as Bush. “I needed eight years, a catastrophic flood, a war built on a lie and an economic disaster. The new guy only needed a hundred days.”
Will went on trash President Donald Trump by saying that he “can’t handle the heat” of the White House and runs down to Mar-a-Lago every chance he gets.
Will then went on to praise journalists for remaining strong in their industry.
“It’s like being on the titanic…” Will said. “The iceberg is coming, and you guys are hanging on to your journalistic integrity, playing your violin as the ship goes down. You should do what they’re doing over at Fox and Friends: dressing up as women and children and stealing the lifeboats.”
Samantha Bee’s Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner airs on TBS tonight at 10/9c.
“I initially trusted this would be an amazing & memorable experience for all of us, which is why I agreed to do one promotion…not knowing about the disaster that was to come,” the 20-year-old model wrote on Twitter. “I feel so sorry and badly because this is something I couldn’t stand by, although of course if I would have known about the outcome, you would have all known too.”
