A report out today from The Hill says that Donald Trump will not attend this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner on April 30th. Back in 2011, Donald Trump, a guest of the Washington Post, was roasted to the crowd’s delight by President Obama.
Asked why he wouldn’t be attending the event this year, “I was asked by every single group of media available to mankind [to attend this year]. But I’ve decided not to go. Do you know why? I would have a good time and the press would say I look like I wasn’t having a good time.”
In his interview with The Hill he said of his 2011 experience, “I had a great time. I was very honored by all of the attention. The president told joke after joke and it was good. They were all very nice and delivered nicely and I had a great time and told the press. For four years, I’ve read what a miserable time I had.”
