It’s that time of year again… for the painful and unfunny White House Correspondents’ Dinner. President Trump has not attended one yet and it is easy to see why considering the abuse that is leveled by comedians, celebrities, and the media at him and his cabinet. This year is no different and once again so-called comedian Michelle Wolf is leading the attack.
You remember her from last year when she viciously accosted White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders who sat there graciously and just took it. Wolf is mocking Trump for not attending this year’s dinner for the third year in a row. I wonder though exactly who the coward is here… a president who doesn’t like negativity or a comedic hack who feels secure in attacking, degrading, and belittling others.
Trump told reporters on Friday, as cited by The Hill: “The dinner is boring and so negative that we’re going to hold a very positive rally.” And exactly what is wrong with that? Nothing. In fact, it’s the correct thing to do. President Trump said he would hold a campaign rally instead, adding: “I like positive things, OK?”
Details are vague on the campaign rally… we don’t even know where it will be located yet. But Trump said it would “be a big one.” And there is sure to be a lot of patriotic Americans in attendance while the snobs of the WHCD pat each other on the back and congratulate each other on how great they are and how terrible Trump is.

Wolf talked it up big yesterday, telling an event in New York that the president “can’t take someone making fun of them.” No, he doesn’t brook with slander and hate. And this woman doesn’t know the difference anymore.
“You know, he’s probably just really busy because he’s got to golf and honestly, I don’t know if anyone really wants to watch him eat,” she said, according to The Hill. “So I think it’s for the best probably.” Who in their right mind would want to schmooze with the likes of Michelle Wolf? I need to take a shower to get clean just thinking about it. Geez.

“He doesn’t have a big enough spine to attend,” she added. “A person who can’t take someone making fun of them, I don’t really care about.” Well, that’s fair… because no one cares about Wolf or her bigoted opinions.
From Business Insider:
“Wolf’s speech at last year’s event, which explicitly insulted people in the room including White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, was widely criticized by the Trump administration, members of the news media, and the White House Correspondents’ Association, the organization behind the dinner.
“Others defended her, saying that the biting truth in her jokes were supposed to make people feel uncomfortable.
“This year’s dinner will take place on April 27. But instead of having a stand-up comedian headline the dinner — as is tradition — this year will feature Ron Chernow, the noted biographer whose books include Alexander Hamilton, President George Washington, and President Ulysses S. Grant.
“Trump teased a possible attendance shortly after the announcement that Chernow would speak at the dinner last November, tweeting: “Good first step in comeback of a dying evening and tradition! Maybe I will go?”
“Trump has never been to the dinner as president, opting instead of hold campaign rallies on the same day.
“Oliver Knox, the president of the White House Correspondents’ Association, said in response to Trump’s refusal to attend: “We’re looking forward to an enjoyable evening of celebrating the First Amendment and great journalists past, present, and future.”
Yeah, actually Business Insider was a little vague on just how vicious Wolf was last year. Here’s a refresher from Breitbart:
“Michelle Wolf hosted last year’s WHCD, using the event to viciously attack press secretary Sarah Sanders on her looks.
“I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful. Like she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye…like maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies. It’s probably lies,” she said.”
When it was announced that the White House Correspondents Association would ditch comedy for a speaker, Wolf called them “cowards.” “The @whca are cowards. The media is complicit. And I couldn’t be prouder,” Wolf tweeted at the time. She’s really big on calling people cowards when she doesn’t get her way.
I personally would much rather go to an upbeat, patriotic, rowdy rally than a self-involved, elitist WHCD. Call me jaded. Call Wolf washed up and very unlikeable.
