Trump Will Ice White House Correspondents’ Dinner; Presidential Cold Shoulder Meant to Nuke “Nerd Prom”

President Donald Trump plans to stick a fork in the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

President Trump will not attend the annual journalistic love-in in 2017. White House strategists believe Trump’s snub of the controversial gathering of so-called Beltway power brokers and Hollywood’s Beautiful People will serve as the final blow to kill the controversial dinner as a D.C. tradition, White House insiders said.

And Trump doesn’t want any of his administration at the dinner either. Or at the lavish after parties sponsored by media conglomerates.

The so-called “Nerd Prom” has long drawn criticism from many corners, especially since Washington and New York media figures schmooze with politicians and Hollywood personalities while trying to maintain the guise of professional objectivity the rest of the year. The event normally serves as an annual roast of the sitting president but with a twist: D.C. media insiders spend not just one night — but an entire week of events — boozing and sucking up to politicians and Hollywood types, while verbally skewering Conservative figures in U.S. politics. It’s an epic night for many self-bloated names in journalism, especially after having spent most of their formative years stuffed in a gym locker.

President Trump does not want to mix socially with the media or Hollywood celebrities, insiders said. In any capacity. The optics of such imagery would send Americans the wrong message about Trump’s presidency, White House insiders said.

The event truly has become a true snapshot of the corrupt and problematic media in America where reporters cozy up to politicians for selfies when they should be digging into their backgrounds and deal making to generate enterprising news. Unfortunately, such comfortable back-scratching relationships extend far beyond the dinner.

It is hard to fathom the Founding Fathers signing off on such an event as the First Amendment was created to foster healthy and open media checks on political power, Not crawling into bed with it.

    Why do we have such STUPID “traditions” that only invite awkwardness and corruption?

    I have wanted a TRUE PRESIDENT who stops all this nonsense. There is no law that says he has to take part in any of the BS.

    God bless you Donald J Trump, you’re helping make America Great Again

    NO! Please go! President Trump must stand up to these crooked journalists! The White House should do its own “Saturday Night LIve” skit— Oh PLEASE!!! KellyAnne Conway & Steve Bannon & President Trump should act out a rehearsal by Alec Baldwin, et al. Have Rosie O’Donnell as a spoof guest & make fun of her! Have a Schumer personality ordering a staffer to squirt lemon juice in his eyes, so he can cry! Have a hero in the background who’s building the set (working America), who are insulted & mistreated by the self important, grandiose celebrities brushing elbows w/Schumer politicos. “Where is my vegan grass juice?” Very demanding & silly! Like celebrities on set. While working Americans rush around to serve them! PLEASE DO THIS!!! This would be SOOO FUNNY!!! Please Go President Trump!!! This is the White House chance to produce its own Saturday Night Live show!

    I’ve NEVER understood the “Correspondents Dinner’…………………
    Years ago it was ‘a fun time’ to say ‘stupid stuff’……………..
    You don’t NEED the dinner anymore, because they say ‘STUPID STUFF’ all the time ! Period.

    Meanwhile, this on voter fraud:

    “President Donald Trump said in remarks broadcast on Sunday that he would put Vice President Mike Pence in charge of a commission to probe what he believes was voter fraud in last November’s election.”


    But OF COURSE they would say THIS:


    “There is an overwhelming consensus among state officials, election experts, and politicians that voter fraud is rare in the United States, but Trump has repeatedly said he thinks perhaps millions of votes cast in the Nov. 8 election were fraudulent.”

    In my opinion it will be better to organize an event for conservative patriots and LOL our Tuches’ off about the other event’s participants.

    California State Senate Leader: ‘Half My Family’ Here Illegally –

    California State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Léon (D-Los
    Angeles) said last Tuesday that “half his family” was in the country
    illegally, using false documents, and eligible for deportation under
    President Trump’s new executive order against “sanctuary” jurisdictions.

    De Léon, who introduced the bill, made his remarks at a hearing in Sacramento on SB54, the bill to make California a “Sanctuary State.” Illegal Aliens Voted!

    I’m torn, watching Trump skewer them to their faces is always fun.

    I generally enjoy the humor, but last year was a freak show. The racist comments by Larry Wilmore were abhorrent. He stung Obama with his reference to drone warfare though. They are a cabal and Trump does not need to attend. Watch what happens at last year’s dinner when Obama mentions Trump….the camera cuts directly to Scott Foval. Remember Scott from Project Veritas expose? Now how did they know that that would be the money shot????? Check it at 20:40. This was before the Veritas investigation. Apparently they were ALL in on it…big joke!!!
