The White House Correspondents’ dinner, enthusiastically called “nerd prom” for years by Washington journalists looking for champagne and selfies, is sobering up, with next week’s gala drawing few celebrities, no president, and now no press secretary.
As if to rub in the lost luster of the event, instead of the usual comedian, a historian will serve as the “entertainment.”
President Trump, snubbing the dinner a third time to host a rally, diverted top aides from the gala, while a faction within the White House Correspondents’ Association nixed the comedy routine, resulting in the least glitzy gathering in decades
Don’t you just love it??? I’m especially delighted that the Donald is doing a rally the same night that will be sure to dominate the ratings.
