President Trump announced on Twitter that he will not be attending the annual White House Correspondents’ dinner held in April, which is called “nerd prom” by attendees and the media.
I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!
— President Trump (@POTUS) February 25, 2017
How did the liberal media take this snub of their annual event? Not so well.
- CBS News: Trump announces he won’t attend annual White House Correspondents Dinner
- CNN: Trump declines to attend White House Correspondents Dinner
- NBC News: Trump will be first POTUS to skip White House Correspondents’ Dinner in over 30 years
- NPR: Trump will be the first president in 36 years to skip White House Correspondents Dinner
Also, Trump attended the event and was picked on by Seth Meyers and then-President Barack Obama and rumors alleged that the jokes contributed to Trump running in the 2016 presidential campaign.
