    (CNN)President Donald Trump will host a dinner at the White House this week celebrating the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The iftar is scheduled for Wednesday, according to Politico, which first reported Trump would host the dinner, and a guest list was not made available by the White House. The event was not held last year, breaking nearly two decades of tradition by previous Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.

    President Trump on Sunday joined in on the criticism of comedian Michelle Wolf's performance at this year's White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) dinner, calling her "filthy" and slamming the event as an "embarrassment." “The White House Correspondents’ Dinner was a failure last year, but this year was an embarrassment to everyone associated with it,” Trump tweeted. “The filthy ‘comedian’ totally bombed (couldn’t even deliver her lines-much like the Seth Meyers weak performance). Put Dinner to rest, or start over!” he added, referencing Meyers' 2011 headlining performance in which he roasted Trump. That same event also featured former President Obama mocking...

    Norm poked fun at the president and many of the famous persons present Maurice Harting 4 months ago Norm MacDonald is a comedian with perfect timing ... he leaves enough room to make himself look like a simple ignorant man while coming up with the most brilliant jokes. Some of his best was his joke about Alan Greenspan' s wedding to Andrea Mitchell, President Bill Clinton's parking spot, Martha Stewart fish bone birdhouse, and Larry King's table waitress joke was also brilliant.

    "We reject efforts by anyone, especially our elected leaders, to paint journalism as un-American," WHCA chief says Margaret Talev, president of the White House Correspondents' Association, opened the dinner with an address about the core of journalism. "Real news is sometimes happy, heart-warming, or heart-breaking and critical or makes you angry. But we reject efforts — be it anyone, especially our elected officials — to undermine journalism as un-American," Talev said.
  • Thick Sea Ice Has Been ‘Catastrophic’ For Canadian Seal Hunters

    Sea ice around Nova Scotia is so thick, Canadian sealers will have trouble meeting Quebec’s growing demand for grey seal meat. “We’ve never had trouble meeting demand, but for 2018, we’ll have to see,” Réjean Vigneau, president of the Intra-Quebec Sealers Association, told CBC News. CBC reports that crews usually haul in 2,000 seals during the winter season, but two failed expeditions in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence since January turned up nothing. Vigneau called it “catastrophic” for the working men of the Magdalen Islands who depend on seal hunting for their livelihood, and to the environment. This year, thick...

    Colorado Democrats have renamed their annual “Jefferson Jackson Dinner” the “Obama Dinner” to honor the legacy of the 44th president and his wife. Barack and Michelle Obama are the ones that the Colorado Democratic Party has been waiting for — to usurp a fundraising event named after the third and seventh U.S. presidents, respectively. Party spokesman Eric Walker had two words for critics of the decision: “Damn right.”

    Apparently a head charge for attending Grandma’s Thanksgiving dinner is now trending. Lmao y’all really don’t understand this $30 thanksgiving plate thing. My aunt charges us and cooks everything and we just eat.— Barty Crouch JEvr. (@beetaylora) November 1, 2017 Some have given this idea a thumbs down but it looks like up-votes are trending among progressives. They say it’s not fair for one family to do all the work and pay all the freight; they think everyone should contribute. Too bad they don’t feel that way about taxes.If they treated Thanksgiving the way they treat taxes your rich uncle...

    Christmas dinner just wouldn't be Christmas dinner without turkey and all the trimmings in the UK and the US. But a fascinating photo series reveals that these countries are almost the only ones that celebrate by eating these foods. Twenty-five families from across the world were asked what they tuck into on December 25 by Christmas tree maker Balsam Hill, and some of the meals are very different to a traditional roast dinner. From slices of veal in a creamy tuna sauce to a starter of goat soup, these are the most unusual Christmas dinners that families enjoy on the...

Our tentative times are 2:30 and 7. Freepmail me to let me know if you are interested and which time is better for you.

    BOSTON (CBS) – TSA agents have found a number of strange things in luggage over the years, but their latest unusual discovery is uniquely New England. A spokesman shared a photo Monday of a lobster weighing more than 20 pounds. The crustacean was detected in a checked bag in Terminal C (JetBlue) on Sunday morning. Lobsters can travel in either carry-on or checked bags. They’re a common sight at New England airports, but this one was notable because of how large it is. The TSA tells WBZ-TV that the lobster was traveling in a cooler and was alive and well....

    Seeking to "roll out a red-carpet welcome" to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President Donald Trump would host him for a working dinner at the White House on Monday, the first of its kind under this administration. "The White House is very interested in making this a special visit. We're really seeking to roll out the red carpet. In fact, the two (leaders) will have dinner, a working dinner at the White House. “This will be the first dinner for a foreign dignitary at the White House under this administration. So, we think that's very significant," a senior administration official...

    Problem with that is that their listeners, viewers and readers do not want to be entertained. They want to be truthfully informed. With the bulk of the mainstream media having long ago thrown totally in with the progressive left, should anybody have to guess who won’t be coming to tonight’s annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner? President Donald Trump stuck to his boycott of the event, and it took less than a nanosecond for a highly offended media to come across like the aggrieved party.

    Washington Times ^ | Joseph Curl
    Since well before his historic and shocking win, President Trump has done fierce battle with the media. It’s an adversarial relationship in which neither side likes — or perhaps even respects — the other. There’s nothing new about that. Chief executives have done battle with the press corps since America’s founding, and it’s often been even uglier than it is now. What’s more, the media has become ever more liberal. That, too, makes sense. Newspapers have been gobbled up by huge media corporations, and both depend on ads for revenue. Where are the best markets? In the cities, populated by...

    The president was heading to his new flagship property in D.C., the Trump Hotel, for a private dinner at the BLT Steakhouse inside. Once the president arrived at the location, the reporter who was on assignment to cover him, Jordan Fabian of The Hill, was not let into the building and had to wait in the van outside for the remainder of the dinner, without a guest list or details of what was happening inside. Inside the restaurant, I was seated at a table that had booked hours earlier, directly next to where Trump would be dining. I made the...

    President Trump announced Saturday that he would not be attending the White House Correspondents Association Dinner in April, punctuating his combative relationship with the news media. “I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!” tweeted Mr. Trump. The annual dinner is a light-hearted affair that traditionally featuring comedians and the president giving roast-style speeches. But Mr. Trump has been battling the press throughout the presidential campaign and has had repeated run-ins with reporters since taking office. He’s railed against what he calls “fake news” and recently...
