Take on the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner
I'm not surprised that Our Dear Leader is skipping the White House Correspondents' Dinner this year, mostly because that weird bronzing thing he does is probably meant to help thicken his very thin skin. Trump is neither funny nor able to take a joke well, so he would actually be a poor choice for the Alfred E. Newman crowd, so maybe it's for best. It was always a great spot for Obama, who could take a joke and deliver one, too but with the way this administration has jousted with the media, it's probably smart he declined. I always found it to be sort of an odd day, with the POTUS and press getting a little too chummy, so don't mind it going by the wayside for a bit especially when it's become so adversarial. Although it would have been brilliant if Trump had showed up and the bouncer at the door told him that he wasn't on the gaggle list and wouldn't let him in.
