Donald Trump Will Skip White House Correspondents' Dinner

Donald Trump has announced that he will not attend the 2017 White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

The annual event is historically attended by the President of the United States and all of the press organizations invite many celebs to mingle with their reporters.

“I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!” Trump tweeted on Saturday afternoon (February 25).

Trump‘s decision not to attend comes after several major media outlets like CNN, The New York Times, and Politico were blocked from a White House press briefing on Friday. Several big sponsors of parties throughout the weekend have also announced they will not participate this year.

Samantha Bee is planning her “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner” in Washington, D.C. on the same night, April 29.

    Wow. Because no celebrities want to come, and the sponsors are pulling out, and he’s already p*ssed off the media. He HAS to know that everyone hates him. And now he’s just ruining the prestige of even being President.

    I love how unpopular he is making himself as President. There is no way the Republicans keep their seats in 2018 now. Then Trump will definitely now be impeached shortly into 2018. Unfortunately Trump has 2 years of power to screw over the Americans that will throw him and his party out before then.

    President Toddler will watch it on TV and tweet about the “lies” and how unfair they are.

  • shoes4life

    He’s just saving face because no one was coming anyway. So, shut it Grump!

  • Nova

    Of course. Dictators don’t like the free press

  • Phil the Donahue

    Isn’t that two months away? What a tool. Dork. Loser. He is so delusional he probably made something up in his head that he’s too important for it.

  • Truvey Taylor

    My God, what a poor sport!!!

  • Naynay

    He should cancel it at least that would save him a bit of money for all his expensive personal travels

    “people aren’t coming to my party, so I’m going to back out first so I can seem cooler than them” lollll this is all so silly

    President Chicken Shit.

  • Cooper

    If he was a dictator he would be controlling the press. He is just a narcissist and manchild.

    The less people that come to the party the more tax dollars we save. Why spend hundreds of thousands on food, security, and entertainment. Let’s spend that money on our public schools please.

  • Nova

    He is that also. He wants to control the media, it seems to drive him to defend himself with lies constantly.

  • Anna

    He’s 70, so probably never.

  • cutitout

    You mean “private” schools now with Devos in charge.

  • cutitout

    Well, when you decide to piss everyone off, attack the media for reporting on the truth, attack celebrities for not being fans of your foolishness, put ridiculously unqualified people in charge of important institutions, threaten to take away millions of people’s healthcare before you have a plan to replace it with something equally affordable, roll back protections on the LBGTQ community, threaten Roe V Wade, ………..yeah, stay your punk-ass home.
