TRUMP: CORRESPONDENTS DINNER IS DEAD

By Brett Samuels - thehill.com

President Trump joined in on the criticism of comedian Michelle Wolf's performance at this year's White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) dinner, calling her "filthy" and slamming the event as an "embarrassment."

“The White House Correspondents’ Dinner was a failure last year, but this year was an embarrassment to everyone associated with it,” Trump tweeted.

“The filthy ‘comedian’ totally bombed (couldn’t even deliver her lines-much like the Seth Meyers weak performance). Put Dinner to rest, or start over!” he added, referencing Meyers's 2011 headlining performance in which he made a number of jokes at Trump's expense.

That same event also featured former President Obama mocking Trump, who at the time was one of the leading promoters of the "birther" conspiracy theory, which sought to cast doubt that Obama was a naturally born American citizen. Some point to Obama's monologue that night as the moment that led Trump to run for president.

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! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 30, 2018

Trump did not attend Saturday night's gala. For the second consecutive year, he held a campaign rally outside the nation’s capital that coincided with the event.

In his absence, Wolf gave a 20-minute monologue that took aim at the president, Vice President Pence, Ivanka Trump, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the media and others.

Numerous journalists and conservative commentators expressed disapproval with Wolf's remarks, saying she had gone too far, particularly in her jokes aimed at Sanders. Some reporters went as far as to suggest the dinner cease to exist in its current form.

WHCA President Margaret Talev said in a statement Sunday night that Wolf's monologue "was not in the spirit" of the organization's mission of promoting journalism and a free press.
