On fire! Trump skips ‘depressing’ press dinner, ‘has already won the night, with one single sentence’


Rather than attend the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday, President Donald Trump celebrated the close of his first 100 days in office by hosting a rally for his supporters in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

“A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation’s capital right now,” he said of the event he had opted out of, which he has traditionally attended by past presidents.

Pennsylvania was the state that put Trump over the top to capture the electoral votes he needed to win the election.

“And I could not possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from Washington’s swamp spending my evening with all of you with a much, much larger crowd and better people,” he told the cheering throng.

After pointing out members of the press covering the event, Trump’s supporters began chanting
“Media sucks! Media sucks!”

Trump has often accused CNN of purveying in “fake news,” as he did this time, and included MSNBC into the mix.

He said that a lot of Washington’s journalists are trapped into attending a “very boring” dinner when they would rather be attending the rally.

And Trump called it on the money. The mood at the White House Correspondents Dinner was somber without the president in attendance, as observed by attendees, beginning with CNN Senior Diplomatic Correspondent Michelle Kosinski.

The president’s supporters believed he made the right call — by doing it his way.

And what of next year?

“But next year, maybe we’ll make it more exciting for them in Washington and show up,” he said — then again, maybe not. “But we have a good chance of showing up here again next year too.”

And the crowd loved it.
