Why would the Leader of the Free World lend prestige to an event dominated by the partisan hacks? Total waste of time.

Right decision, Mr. President.

Instead, Trump will lock himself in his bedroom and lie on the bed watching Fox News whilst eating burgers. Now that's a boring evening.

If you take your TDS blinders off for a second, you'd know that he will be in a rally with a far more positive message for the American people.

President Donald Trump says he's got better things to do than attend the "boring" and "negative" White House Correspondents' Association dinner.

Hahahaha. The White House Correspondents' Association desperately wants to add a Trump appearance to their "boring" and "negative", haters-gotta-hate, trash-talking, over-priced dinner. Why? Because they want the huge media attention that the event would have received if Trump made an appearance. Without Trump's appearance, this is just another whiny get together by Trump haters. Yawn.

Why should he attend an event full of those who's clearly hate him? He's got more important things to do, like rally the people who voted him in to improve the economy, decrease unemployment etc.

If he attended he would just try to drag them all down to his level of gutter press.

It wasn't Trump's level they went down to, it was their level.

100% correct. Few people can sink as low as Trump. Even at "their level," they were orders of magnitude above Trump's level. Tee Hee!

That was one of your lamer posts, Chip. And who is Samders? Har!

Oh my . . . Sorrane, I simply assumed that Samders' name was open to interpretation like she does with facts. HAR!! (Notice the caps and double exclamation points.)

It was bad when they went down to Trump’s level and got a vulgar comedienne for last year’s dinner.

It wasn't Trump's level they went down to, it was their level.

That was pretty tasteless.

But nowhere near as tasteless as Trump's and Samder's assaults on facts. HAR!

LOL at least he's honest about it, it would be boring and negative

If I was the president, I would tell them to go have their dinner at McDonalds.

It was bad when they went down to Trump’s level and got a vulgar comedienne for last year’s dinner. It gave credence to Trump’s criticism about the one sided media. Hopefully, this year’s event will return to the way it used to be no matter who the president is.

The association decided to shift to a featured speaker instead of a comic after a sharply anti-Trump performance last year by comedian Michelle Wolf that some thought was too pointed against White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and other White House staff.

That was pretty tasteless.

He will be conspicuous in his absence, but not missed.

Orange man is too thin skinned to attend.
