Trump Again To Skip “Bad And Fake” Press Gala

The Hill reports:

President Trump says in a new interview that he will likely skip the upcoming White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCD), his second skip of the annual event so far as president. In an interview with “Bernie & Sid in the Morning” on 77 WABC, the president said he will “probably” not attend the annual gala hosted by the White House press association. “It’s unlikely I will do the White House Correspondents dinner this year,” Trump told the hosts, before getting in one of his signature attacks at the news media: It’s “so bad and so fake.”

Last year Trump petulantly scheduled a campaign rally on the same night of the gala so that many reporters would be forced to miss the event.
