Trump skips correspondents dinner


White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will take President Trump's place at the White House Correspondents Association annual dinner.


Can Trump possibly be more chicken? Seriously, he is sending in Huckabee? He can't face the press? Perhaps those bone spurs are acting up.

Let's state the obvious here. Obama was spectacular at these events and Trump doesn't want to be out classed by Obama.

President Trump has big brass ones. Why in hell's name would he want to go to such an affair.

It is giving the media a message. Let us see how they respond.

Much easier “battling” the media on Twitter.

Oh please. They fawned over Obama and have gave Trump nothing but sh** from day one, so why would he even bother?
Do you go to dinner with people who hate you?

Trumplethinskin has no sense of humour especially when he is the butt of the joke , it's probably best he doesn't attend.

Right. Go to dinner with people who had a meltdown over 2 scoops of ice cream, condemn your every move, second guess your every decision and doing their best to get you fired.

Where I'm from that's called "kissing ass".
Also see "brown noser" and "hypocrite"

^^Exactly. Going to a dinner with people that hate everything about you and work everyday to ruin your credibility makes total sense...


You call him a coward? < - Case in point of why he shouldn't be bothered with going. OP and CNN together are like birds of a feather.

Who would want to go to that B-O-R-I-N-G back-slapper thing anyway.

It's nothing but a NWO love-fest clogged with Left-Wing agitators and infiltrators.

The only part that might be good is when they award the gold plated dunce hat for failure of the year.

Where I'm from it's called good grace , surely the multimillionaire President is big enough to let them have their fun without throwing a sulk.

Trump doesn't need to stoop to their level, hes not chicken. we have more pressing matters to attend to than liberals massaging their holier-than-thou ego.

Surely the MSM and Liberal Democrats can lose an election without sulking.
See how that works?

Yeah I see how it works , it's a staple tactic of the faithful.


Here's a President who really had no reason to go but bit the bullet and turned it to his advantage.

Comparing Trump and Obama going to the Correspondents Dinner is like saying - a man should be comfortable going to his exes family reunion. Just because they love their wife/daughter/niece doesn't mean they will love the ex-husband.

In todays America, the Fourth Estate has become a Fifth Column. Why provide them with ammunition?

I do all the time... like family events and work functions. Sometimes you just have to act like a responsible adult and interact with people you don't really want too, even I know that.

Rather than lying in bed assuming the fetal position, eating ice cream and watching fox news, well sobbing about how unfair it is that CNN doesn't worship you like a god... which is obviously what he'll be doing instead.

You make a great point, here.

With any luck, in another year or so the media will at least not be like a pack of salivating hyenas ready to giggle and pounce simultaneously.

That said, we both know that thin skin is a character flaw of his. Someone should ask him if he like fish sticks. I recall him and Kanye were quite chummy. LMAO.

I ain't gonna lie...it would be fantastic to see. I bet without him there they are just savage. He coulda softened the blow a bit by showing up...but that wouldn't give him 2 weeks of Tweet content.
