    To hear the amount of consternation coming from the cable news community you’d think that the United States was about to invade Canada. Shock waves are roiling the press over President Trump’s Twitter announcement saying that he would not be attending this year’s White House Correspondents Dinner. Could this be the end of Nerd Prom? (The Hill) President Trump announced Saturday he will not be attending this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, which is usually attended by the president.“I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great...

  • Byron York: At correspondents dinner, Obama lets second-term anger out

    Depending on your perspective, President Obama's performance at the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday night was either funny or filled with rage. Or perhaps it was funny about being filled with rage. Either way, there's no doubt that Obama, by incorporating comedian Keegan-Michael Key into his act, went public with the anger — specifically, the black anger — that has become part of the general conversation about Obama's time in office. Key and partner Jordan Peele do a Comedy Central routine in which Peele, playing Obama, delivers a calm, measured speech while Key, playing Obama's "anger translator," named Luther, acts...

    CNN host Wolf Blitzer praised actress Jane Fonda and acting U.S. State Department spokesperson Marie Harf on Saturday night at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner. “Nothing better than Jane Fonda,” the CNN host said of his guests. “Can you believe I’m here with Jane Fonda and Marie Harf, acting spokeswoman of the State Department?! How cool is that?” Harf joined in to gush about Fonda. “I was looking forward to meeting Jane Fonda, so this was a dream come true,” Harf said. “We’ve already done selfies in the car.”

    They may govern the free world's leading nation and regulate the globe's biggest economy, but when it comes to celebrities, Washingtonians are as starstruck as folks from Des Moines. That's why the annual White House Correspondents' dinner has assumed an outsized importance on the capitol social calendar and one of the reasons many locals are feeling let down by this year's dearth of A-list actors and film figures. Apart from Robert De Niro, who is promoting a documentary on his artist father, there will only be a smattering of high-wattage names at Saturday night's edition of the annual event. A...

    The Russians warned the Obama regime of their concerns that the Tsarneav's could be religious extremists, but this regime wasn't interested because there is no longer such a thing as "Islamic extremism." There is no longer such a thing as "jihad." Had they only been white right wing militias. Obama was ready for them. The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement officials about a rise in “rightwing extremist activity,” saying the economic recession, the election of America's first black president and the return of a few disgruntled war veterans could swell the ranks of white-power militias. Yeah, those...

    NBC News Political Director Chuck Todd says President Obama was making it “clear” at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner over the weekend how he feels about the rise of Internet news sites like Politico, Buzzfeed and … well, WND. “He hates it.” Appearing on “Meet the Press” Sunday morning following Saturday night’s media, politics and celebrity soiree, Todd explained the president’s disdain for independent online news sources was showing during his speech. “It did seem … I thought his pot shots, joke-wise, and then the serious stuff about the Internet, the rise of the Internet media and social media and...

    Speaking at the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday, President Barack Obama made a birther joke. Obama was talking about how his recent appearance at the dedication of George W. Bush's presidential library inspired him to start his own legacy. He then made a quip about the potential location of his library. "Some have suggested we put it in my birthplace, but I'd rather keep it in the United States," Obama joked.

    The Democrats thought they had a great distraction from the economic issues that bedevil most Americans in the form of 30-year-old activist Sandra Fluke. Rush Limbaugh foolishly (as he later acknowledged) called her a “slut” and a “prostitute” in the course of ridiculing, entirely properly, her very silly claim that the federal government should force all employers to pay for their female employees’ contraception–I never did figure out whether the plan extended to buying male employees condoms and vasectomies–regardless of whether either the employers or employees prefer such benefits to cash compensation. Ms. Fluke’s theory, really, was so stupid as...
