Barbara Walters Critiques The White House Correspondents' Dinner! Watch HERE!

| Filed under: TV NewsBarbara WaltersPolitik

Barbara Walters is not happy with the White House.

The View host and journalist aired her true feelings about the Correspondents’ Dinner on the show this morning, claiming that the tradition isn't what it once was.

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) and hear firsthand what Barbara had to say.

She explained:

“The White House Correspondents' Dinner has changed… It's why some of us didn't go this year, because it's got movie stars… you used to see other members of the administration, other politicians, but it's become more and more about the movie stars at the table."

She added:

"But there was more administration, and senators and congressmen. I mean, it's the White House Correspondents' Dinner… It used to be a wonderful opportunity to meet all different people in Washington, but when it gets to be about movie stars, not that it's not fun, but it's a little different.”

Hmm. Does she have a point??

    It's much like the Obama administration. Style but no substance. It sickens me how the White House has just become another Hollywood hook-up joint. I bet our Founding Fathers would be disgusted with how the Obamas treat the place. All Obama does now is golf and have concerts, does he do any Presidential work? Oh, he did do the sequester but he blamed that on others, just like everything else. Great that he cares so much about the people killed at the Boston marathon and the kids in Connecticut, wh doesn't he care about the victims of the Fort Hood shooter or the hundreds of kids that have been killed in Chicago (so much for tough gun laws, the criminals still have the guns). You wonder did Perez care about politics before? No, and he won't after Obama. He makes money off of Obama (and thus, us the taxpayer) to plant only favorable stories. I mean, has ever said one dispariging remark about Obama-then again, Perez doesn't talk about Obama policies, because he doesn't get it and he's not smart politically. People who love Obama know almost nothing about how an economy works and almost nothing about the world. It's a shame this idiot won re-election.

    Obama is president that's why….low rent people are obviously gonna be invited. Do you educated people want to go to a place where they refer to Beyonce as queen?

    Im not an american… But i think she's telling the truth… Now the president treats celebs like royalty (beyonce, jay z, etc) and its weird…

    Unfortunately, Anerica is all about the celebrity…I mean, more people can refer to these tarts and tramps actresses than they can local, state, and national politicians…….Just glad that Fug Cyrus broad was not there…that would have been the ULTIMATE low-rent/low-down No-Class Fat-Ass event !

    She is absolutely RIGHT. It's a shame what the Obamas' are doing, it's a damn shame. There are so many tragedies going on in our country, moreover our country is in the dumps but our president and first lady are too busy partying with movie stars. Is this a joke? The white house corr. dinner looked more like a Oscars Vanity Fair after party more than a official state dinner. SMH.

    that's what happens when your president is a fame whore. he cares more about vacations and how many celebrities he can hang out with than anything else.

    the joke is really on us. there are no journalist left, they are just note takers. Obama's write the script and they go with it. American Pravda. even the Russians are try to warn us but Americans are to stupid to even understand anything but the E channel and perez hilton

    Used to love watching that when I was in college (think they may have played it the following day or week so they could censor it).
    Barbara is right on!
    Just because she is old does not mean she does not have a good point.

    She's right, im surprised no one has complained or called this out earlier. You have morons actors, bimbo actresses and idiots from reality TV showing up. Katy perry? Really? Hollywood turned it into a joke, just a big fashion event. They did it with coachella too. You had celebs who wear 20,000 dollar wardrobes spend an entire week planning on what cheap hippie looking attire to wear to that..Jokes.
