- “A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation’s capital right now.”
- New York Times is getting smaller and smaller. ..It’s starting to look like a comic book.’
Instead of attending the 2017 White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington D.C., , Donald Trump held rally commemorating his first 100 days in office in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on Saturday with his 10,000 supporters.
President Donald J. Trump slammed the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
“A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation’s capital right now.”
‘They would love to be with us right here tonight. But they’re trapped at the dinner, which will be very, very boring.’
‘The media,’ he said, ‘deserves a very, very big, fat fat failing grade’ for its coverage of his first 100 days in office.
He singled out ‘the failing New York Times,’ saying its poor financial management has forced it to shrink its print edition past the point where ‘pretty soon they’ll only be on the Internet.’
‘The paper’s getting smaller and smaller. Did you ever notice? It’s starting to look like a comic book.’
The happy crowd also chant “CNN sucks! CNN sucks!” at President Donald J. Trump‘s 100-day rally.

President Donald J. Trump: “With hope in our souls and patriotism in our hearts, I say these words to you tonight on 100 days of devotion, hard work and love for our great country: Together we’ll make America strong again, we’ll make America wealthy again, we’ll make America prosper again, we’ll make America proud again, we’ll make America safe again, and we’ll make America great again!”
- Bullish Trump renews his battle with the ‘incompetent’ media as he mocks ‘boring’ White House Correspondents’ Dinner and boasts that his First 100 Days rally attracted ‘much better people’
( Daily Mail ) The ‘Daily Show’ comedian and host of the 2017 White House Correspondents’ dinner Hasan Minhaj mocked everyone from Bill O’Reilly to the 45th President himself during the annual event.
President Donald Trump, who was conspicuously absent for the proceedings, took the brunt of the jokes, with Minhaj referring to him as the ‘Liar in Chief’.
‘We’ve got to address the elephant that’s not in the room,’ cracked the entertainment headliner.
‘The leader of our country is not here. And that’s because he lives in Moscow. It’s a very long flight. As for the other guy, I think he’s in Pennsylvania because he can’t take a joke.’
Trump was indeed in Pennsylvania, having scheduled a rally in Harrisburg to mark his 100th day in office. He began his remarks with a lengthy if familiar attack on the news media while dismissing the dinner and its participants.
The dinner has gotten particularly favorable reviews this year by a number of media outlets for it’s lack of glitz and glam that come with Hollywood Stars, and renewed focus on praising the First Amendment and Freedom of Press.
