President Trump Derides White House Correspondents’ Dinner As “Fake News”

President Trump took to Twitter Sunday and Monday morning to share his opinion on the widely criticized White House Correspondents’ Dinner that took place this Saturday.

“Everyone is talking about the fact that the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was a very big, boring bust…the so-called comedian really ‘bombed.'” Trump, of course, is referring to “comedian” Michelle Wolf who spent a large portion of her “Act” by mocking Sanders as Aunt Lydia in the Handmaiden’s Tale, a bull-dyke gym teacher and attacked Sanders over her ‘smoky eye’ look.

On Sunday, Trump suggested that comedian Greg Gutfeld should host next years dinner.

Monday morning, Trump called the White House Correspondents’ Dinner “fake news.”

Trump tweeted: “The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is DEAD as we know it. This was a total disaster and an embarrassment to our great Country and all that it stands for. FAKE NEWS is alive and well and beautifully represented on Saturday night!”

Believe it or now, a handful of liberal reporters seem to agree with President Trump on the actual lack of success of the dinner. New York Times and MSNBC contributor Peter Baker wrote, “Unfortunately, I don’t think we advanced the cause of journalism tonight.”

The New York Time’s Maggie Haberman wrote, “That [Sarah Sanders] sat and absorbed intense criticism of her physical appearance, her job performance, and so forth, instead of walking out, on national television, was impressive.”
