President Donald Trump’s skin is apparently not as thick as he pretends it to be. In a seemingly random tweet, the commander-in-chief announced on Saturday that he will not be attending this year’s White House Correspondent’s Dinner in April, a traditional event for press and politicians.

The only president in history to miss the event is Nixon in 1972.

“The dinner, a major fundraiser for an organization that represents the free press covering the WH, will go on —and be a success, I’m sure,” said Jennifer Jacobs, a White House reporter for Bloomberg News.

“Is it the part where comedians make fun of the president?,” Dave Itzkoff, culture reporter for The New York Times said. “Or where they give out scholarships? It’s the scholarships, isn’t it.”

The announcement come the day after the White House barred left-leaning news outlets from attending a Sean Spicer-led press briefing. On Friday, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, CNN, BBC and Politico were asked to step aside as all the major broadcast networks and conservative pubs Breitbart News and The Washington Times.

Looks like Trump is being consistent about his disdain for free speech.

    Trump, being the ego-maniac that he is, probably thinks he’ll be missed. Half the big name journalist were planning to boycott the event anyway. Now….maybe they’ll show up.

  2. I think he should go just to thumb his nose at those who hate the fact he’s the POTUS
    And also to thank Seth Meyers for his joke that motivated him to run in the first place
    They made fun of him talking about Sweden’s growing problem with immigration and that night there was a riot in a suburb of Stockholm

    Of course he will not attend he can’t stand the heat and he NEVER wants to be wrong. I guess he thinks that if he keeps saying “fake news” somebody will believe his stupid butt. Boy Bye no one cares
