After last years controversial White House Correspondent’s Dinner, many in the Trump administration are not going to attend the annual dinner. Although an official announcement hasn’t been made, Fox News learned on Tuesday that they would not be attending. In response, the President of the White House Correspondent’s Association Oliver Knox stated, “We’re looking forward to an enjoyable evening of celebrating the First Amendment and great journalists past, present, and future.”
Even President Trump stated that instead of the dinner he would instead hold a rally in Green Bay, Wis, because according to Trump, “The dinner is so boring and so negative that we’re going to hold a very positive rally instead.” President Trump has not attended a single dinner since he took office but hinted this may be the year since the organization made plans for Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ron Chernow to speak instead of a comedian.
Last year comedian speaker Michelle Wolf made headlines after her controversial performance at last years dinner. In her act, she had spoken negatively of the White House and made snipes towards Secretary Sarah Sanders who went in the representation of the Trump Administration.
