Pres. Trump says he won't attend White House Correspondents' Dinner”

Trump tweeted Saturday, "I will not be attending the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner this year".

The annual event, often referred to as "nerd prom", is actually a fundraiser for future journalists and the 103-year old White House Correspondents' Association.

"Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!" he tweeted Saturday afternoon.

Kate Upton's Sex Shocker About Fiancé Justin Verlander
Upton also received a question about what she thinks of the older generations of models being critical of the younger generation. Her fiancé, Justin Verlander, has been on three - as far as I can tell, the most combined boyfreind-girlfriend SI covers ever.

Trump's announcement, which gave no reason, came after a sustained attack on the media. According to a report in BuzzFeed, CNN, a recent target of the president's ire, is still considering whether to attend.

Trump has had a strained relationship with the press calling journalists "the enemy of the people" and frequently criticizing outlets and individual reporters whose coverage he does not like.

The 2016 White House Correspondents' dinner made headlines when President Obama dropped the microphone after his monologue and also when host Larry Wilmore said the n-word as a term of endearment aimed at Obama. The president traditionally speaks as well.

According to the History Channel the dinner has been cancelled three times: following the death of former president William Howard Taft, in 1930, after the USA entry into the second world war in 1942, and in 1951, during the Korean war.

He's been stung by the event before ― in 2011, when then-President Barack Obama roasted him. Meanwhile, CNN is still apparently sticking to its guns, weathering accusations of fake newsery and planning to hold its annual party; ditto The Atlantic and CBS News.
