President Donald Trump recently tweeted that he won’t attend this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner for no specific reason, Trump would be the first president who didn’t attend the dinner since Ronald Reagan in 1981, who missed the event because he was recuperating from an assassination attempt which was happened less than a month before, but even then he was able to give his remarks about the event via phone.
Come on, we all were looking forward to some new jokes! The event will be boring without him, Maybe the White House predict that Trump’s work might not lie in his comedy routines? Or maybe he wanted to be the one to back out before every other media organization could cancel?
Anyways, check out some really interesting tweets below.
I will not be attending the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!

Lol. That's like not being asked to go to the prom and then telling everyone you didn't want to go anyway. https://t.co/q0UIfDB6Uq

Is it the part where comedians make fun of the president? Or where they give out scholarships? It's the scholarships, isn't it https://t.co/UgoyQqbCDl

The White House Correspondents Association should just invite @AlecBaldwin to take Trump's place at the #WHCD.

Trump will not attend this year's White House Correspondents Dinner on April 30th, because of the good chance he'll be impeached already.

.@realDonaldTrump The good news is that if Trump wants to avoid places he's being made fun of, he'll never be able to go anywhere again.

President Trump's White House Correspondents Dinner tweet is intended to distract you from the fact that we're all dying.
