WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump on Tuesday barred White House staff and members of his administration from attending this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner on Saturday, officials said.
CNN's Ana Navarro perfectly put into context the hypocrisy behind the Trump supporting whining about Michelle Wolf's brutally truthful set at the White House Correspondents Dinner.
Comedian Michelle Wolf took no prisoners at the White House Correspondents Dinner where she called out cable news for creating Trump and then profiting off of him as president.
Wolf said, “There’s a ton of news right now issues a lot is going on and we have all of these 24 hour news networks and we could be covering everything. Instead we’re covering three topics. Every hour is trump, Russia, Hillary and a panel full of people that remind you why you don’t go home for Thanksgiving. You guys are obsessed with Trump, did you used to date him? Because you pretend like you hate him but I think you love him. I think what no one in this room wants to admit is that Trump has helped all of you. He couldn’t sell steaks or vodka or water or college or ties or Eric, but he has helped you. He’s helped you sell your papers and your books and your T.V. You helped create this monster and now you’re profiting off of him. If you’re going to profit off of Trump you should at least give him some money because he doesn’t have any. Trump is so broke –”
"I just thought in light of the fake news and all the other things we're talking about...I just thought it would be better if I didn't do the dinner"
