  • 'Our Cartoon President' Imagines White House Correspondents Dinner With Trump In Attendance

The White House Correspondents Dinner is an annual press event that is part meal and part roast. "I could be up there tonight smiling like I love when they're hitting you, shot after shot". The president, who skipped the dinner for the second year in a row, called the event "phony". Trump asked the rally goers. "These people are very dishonest people, many of them".

Usually, the president attends the dinner, but Trump will not be attending this year's Correspondents Dinner. "And then I'm supposed to." he continued, faking an exaggerated smile.

With Trump not in attendance, the WHCA dinner is decidedly less of a must-see event, but if you're home on a Saturday night-and you don't mind a little inappropriate coziness between journalists and the government officials they're tasked with holding accountable-you can live-stream the dinner and preceding coverage online.

Where can I watch it? .


Trump's aides skipped last year's dinner, too.

Margaret Talev, the president of the White House Correspondents' Association and senior White House correspondent for Bloomberg News, announced Trump will not attend, but he "will actively encourage members of the executive branch to attend and join us as we celebrate the First Amendment". "You know, one of the things we say in the south, if a Girl Scout egged your house, would you buy cookies from her?"

"A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation's capital right now", Trump told the crowd at last year's rally, held roughly three months after he was sworn into office.

Saturday's rally was held about an hour north of Detroit in Macomb County, a swing area won by President Obama in both the 2008 and 2012 elections, but swung in Trump's favor in his defeat of Clinton.
