The media is NOT the enemy of the American people — but journalists are a hell of a lot tougher than Donald Trump!
The President just tweeted out an important message about the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, and oh look, guess what — the big tough talker can’t take the heat!
Here’s what The Donald tweet about a half hour ago (below):
I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!
├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 25, 2017
Come on, Donald!
You talk MAD shit about the media, and then on the one night where they get to push back tongue-in-cheek at a notoriously funny ceremony, you all of a sudden will not be attending??
This will make him the first President NOT to attend the dinner in more than 30 years, by the way.
No wonder The Donald has caved so seriously to Vladimir Putin… the leader of the free world is terrified by something as simple as a free press, let alone a dictator! The poor President is scared of the news! He needs his alternative facts to feel good!
Weak! Sad! Scared!
Low energy President!
And the White House Correspondents Association just dropped some beautiful, beautiful shade on The Donald, too!!!
WHCA President Jeff Mason said in a statement:
“The WHCA takes note of President Donald Trump’s announcement on Twitter that he does not plan to attend the dinner, which has been and will continue to be a celebration of the First Amendment and the important role played by an independent news media in a healthy republic. We look forward to shining a spotlight at the dinner on some of the best political journalism of the past year and recognizing the promising students who represent the next generation of our profession.”
Nothing like shading The Donald and celebrating the First Amendment and the freedom of the press in one fell swoop!!
