White House Cheers CNN’s Boycott Of Their Party

Newsweek reports:

There will be no armistice in the ugly feud between President Donald Trump and CNN this holiday season. The cable news network announced late Tuesday night that it will boycott the White House’s annual Christmas party for members of the media, news that will come as an early Christmas gift for Trump and his staff.

“In light of the President’s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests,” CNN said in a statement.

In keeping with the president’s petty attacks on CNN and other liberal media outlets, Trump’s press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders rejoiced that the boycott was “finally, good news from CNN.”

There’s also this from Newsweek:

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a “serial congenital liar” who buries the American people “in an avalanche of horse shit” and must know in her soul that what she’s doing is wrong, a GOP strategist and media consultant said Monday night.

Rick Wilson piled on Sanders after the White House mouthpiece defended Trump’s use of the insult “Pocahontas” during a White House reception honoring the Navajo code talkers, a group of Native American World War II heroes. Sanders said the term was “not a racial slur,” even though Native Americans absolutely see it as one.

    It is good to know that even people on the right are fed up with Sander’ bullshit.

    “In light of the President’s continued attacks on freedom of the press”

    What continues to be lacking is solidarity among the press. Others should follow CNN’s lead here and send a message. But they won’t, since they all want to continue to protect what little “access” they have.

    • ETownCanuck

      Exactly! If there were a shred of integrity left amongst them, they would all walk out in solidarity and put the motherfucker on blast that his shit will no longer be tolerated. It’ll never happen though.

    • kaydenpat

      Exactly. What do they have to lose?

  • Do Something Nice

    I’m tired of the petty bullshit.

  • DreadPikathulhu

    Every day worse than the previous one. When will it end?

  • Gerry Fisher

    There are many painful things about this administration. One of them is the consistent feeling that we’ve all been condemned to go back to middle school for 4 years. Their discourse and bullying are at that level.

  • james1200

    Any ladies that are planning on attending the White House Xmas party, take note and protect yourselves!

    • Tawreos

      Step 2 should be the go to move for any woman meeting the president.

      • james1200

        But note that much practice will be required before hitting such a miniscule target so u may not be able to take the the rapist out with just one kick.

        • Tawreos

          I’m all for as many knees to the balls as it takes to protect the assaultee from being grabbed.

        • Nowhereman

          Easy peasy! Just wear a big pair of steel toed work boots.

      • Tread

        Step 2 should be the go to move for any woman anyone meeting the president. FIFY.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      LOL Small target areas make me sad!

      • Tawreos

        If only it were possible to knee him in the ego.

    • Nowhereman

      “Small target area.” HAH!

  • NYCBullDog

    A friend of mine described her perfectly. She looks like Marie Osmond in a K hole wearing Blanche Deveraux’s headboard.

    • Gustav2

      Yeah, but fewer and fewer people care what Jeremy Corbyn says.

    • pj

      that was profoundly stupid of him. obamas minders would never let him tweet stuff like that. oh wait…

      • Dreaming Vertebrate

        Obama never needed any minders.
        Unlike spoiled Donnie, Obama was an adult.

        • kaydenpat

          Thank you.

        • Nowhereman

          Also, Obama had zero indictments and zero convictions in his administration for eight years. I’ll be interested to see what the final tally will be on Trump and Co.

      • Strepsi

        Oh wait what

        • pj

          obama never had a minder.

        • pj

          obama would never say anything like that.

        • pj

          obama wasent a stupid fat fuck.

          • Todd20036

            Nope. He was a caring, giving, and noisy fuck.

            Sigh!

    • JAKvirginia

      Well, no need to wonder anymore. Trump can kiss that state visit and wedding invitation goodbye. The Queen must be happy as a clam.

    • Nowhereman

      I hope that their government rescinds the invitation for a state visit by Trump. I think they have a law about keeping people out who only want to stir up shit, and that is all Trump does wherever he goes.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    ” a “serial congenital liar” who buries the American people “in an avalanche of horse shit” and must know in her soul that what she’s doing is wrong ”

    LOL accurate about our little Sarah except she has no soul.

    • Gil

      And she’s not” little”.

    • Andymac3

      And going by her dad, she knows what she is doing, but to her it’s normal to lie and insult in your job.

    • Nowhereman

      I look forward to the day that the smug arrogant look is wiped off of her face.

  • joe ho

    No self-respecting journalist should be going to that party in the first place.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    CNN was even invited ?

    • Jeffg166

      He wanted to ignore them.

      • Guess?

        You misspelled “gore.”

    Maybe NOW the 4th Estate will take the gloves off and start calling lies LIES instead of euphemisms?

      Ha. Fat chance.

    I’m so fed up with this ugly regime & everything they represent.

  • Friday’s_cat

    Will other print and broadcast news media outlets have the sac to do likewise or will they pay obeisance to the Great White Dope?.

  • DaddyRay

    If only CNN and other MSM would have boycotted giving Trump all of the free airtime during the Presidential campaign

  • another_steve

    No reputable person or organization will associate with this street thug parading as “President of the United States.”

    None.

  • Friday’s_cat

    IDK if the food is free journalists will show.

  • Nathaniel

    After they crazy coverage of Hillary’s emails I didn’t think I will praise them in decade to come, but this is great.

  • Gil

    I wish a reporter would ask her if she ” thinks” she and/or the prez is a good role model for her three children.

  • The entire press corps should just boycott these “briefings” altogether.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Ahh, but that would require integrity…something that, I hate to say, seems lacking of late in American journalism.

  • Bambino

    O/T Anyone watches The CW crossover of its DC super hero series Crisis on Earth X last two nights? Gayest super heroes thus far. Wentworth Miller play a gay version of Citizen Cold with Ray as his lover played by Russell Tovey. No time to make out but plenty of kisses. White Canary had a one night stand with Alex Denver. Mr. Fantastic brief solo appearance. As were Captain Singh and his fiancee. Nergasm for the gays 🙂

    • Reality.Bites

      I don’t know what you saw, but the second annual Glee Reunion episode really sucked.

      1. It was unfair to call it a reunion episode with just Sebastian, Marley and Quinn. At least Blaine and Will’s father were there and sang in the last one.

      2. Really, really lame for Ryan Murphy to recycle the plot device of a wedding not happening and use the same device of someone showing up in the same outfit – in this case, not even the bride, but Marley’s work clothes that she wasn’t even wearing.

      3. Sebastian, we might believe you’re good now, but straight? Please. Even less believable than Blaine dating Karofsky.

      4. So Marley didn’t get to sing in Shue’s wedding. No reason to give her the only solo.

      5. I am not sure about the recasting of Quinn, but can the character do nothing anymore but show up at weddings, get drunk and have a hook-up with a hot brunette lesbian while claiming to be straight?

      • Bambino

        It’s a great special event with theme of punching and killing the Nazis through out.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      I know right? Watching The Ray and Citizen Cold lock lips was DAYHEM!!! Yeah, the entire crossover was a delightful surprise…though the Jax and Martin storyline had me in tears (lost my dad a few months ago and it was like….).

      • Bambino

        Yup I was tweeter watch with a group, almost everyone cried because the story hit closer to home for us.

  • hdtex
  • kaydenpat

    All of the MSM should skip this party. He’s actively attacking our press for calling him out on his b.s. Why attend?

  • Scout

    I am so tired of our country being assaulted by these unprofessional liars!! Liar in chief and all the suck up liars underneath. So tired of the constant lack of professionalism and demonstration of stupidity leading our country for all the world to see, so tired of the GOP happily keeping it in place, so tired of our democracy and ideals being torn apart piece by piece. Once net neutrality is gone and the new tax bill in place, and no check on government ethics, sanctions, consumer protections, etc., will there be any chance? Once the courts are stacked, all will support Trump, as the consumer protection case just showed.

    No Sarah, the good news from CNN will be when they report that the orange one has been impeached and removed from office. That will be a day to rejoice.

  • Paula

    If only a sex tape of Sarah and Daddy Fuckabee would surface.

  • Ninja0980

    Would be nice if other media outlets would do the same.

  • fahvel

    with her background and that family of hers, she has no soul. Nice people have souls. She is the antithesis of nice in every way.

  • boobert

    I don’t know why any of them would go !

  • BlindBill

    Why is her boss throwing a party for people he detests, and why is Sarah Sanders, a self-identifying christian, so hateful?

      Answer to Question Number 1: He’ll have an entire evening to insult journos to their faces, and then tweet about it to his jackass fans, while earning some more nazi cred.

      Question Number Two answers itself.

    MY Christmas present, Huckleberry, would be if EVERYONE would boycott YOUR lyin’ ass, so just STFU, you cyclops.

  • EDinMCO

    Why are ANY media (other than the Reich wing spin machine, of course) attending this party? Grow some balls, folks!

  • JAKvirginia

    What if somebody had a party and no one showed up? Let’s find out. Media? Ball’s in your court.

  • coram nobis

    CNN simply didn’t want to risk polonium in their egg nog.

    There’s also the bit about the Time Warner/AT&T/DOJ merger. And CNN’s place in it.

  • Nowhereman

    I think that all serious news outlets should stay away. It’s bad enough that they have to cover the daily press briefing. I’d love to see people who are given awards for service to our country to stay the hell away from the white house during the Trump Era, too. It used to be an honor to be invited to the white house. Now it’s a slap in the face.

  • Ore Carmi

    Shame on her! Does not exactly produce an atmosphere supportive of freedom of the press.
