The Decline and Fall of the WH Correspondent’s Dinner

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.

    I will pour myself a full pint of schadenfreude to sip along with y’all.

    I’m shaken to my core, Sir Bubba!  My outrage meter is at 115%!  One pulls a pint, not pour one.

    Well, if I had it handy on tap I would pull it, but since the only handy supply is in glass bottles in the beer fridge, then pouring will have to do.   (Although, I may scandalize Snooks and drink from the bottle.)

    10 Cents:
    Is the WH sending anyone instead?

    I would bet … NO!

    They have in past years. Witness last year’s event where Sarah Sanders was the designated sacrifice… and the target of disgusting Rat-Woman Michelle Wolf.  Several admin members were there. I think NONE of them should attend, nor any Republican. These people have dedicated their lives to destroying healthy, normal civilization. Shun them and all their works.

  4. We know Sarah isn’t attending and certainly hope Kellyanne isn’t either. Ivanka and Jared wouldn’t be caught dead there, so who is left?
