President Trump made history as the first sitting president to have missed White House Correspondents Dinner


Hmm, what's different this year?
President Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday that he won't attend this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner for, uh, no reason.

Amid an ever-escalating war with the media, Donald Trump tweeted Saturday that he wouldn't attend the White House Correspondents Association's annual dinner.

Maybe the White House foresaw that Trump's skills might not lie in his comedy routines? Maybe Trump remembered how the last few dinners that mentioned him went? Or maybe he wanted to be the one to back out before every other media organisation could cancel?

Whatever the cause, Twitter was pretty happy..

The dinner is an opportunity for a comedian to roast the press and the president, and for the president to roast everyone else. Only rarely in the event's 100-year history, have sitting presidents declined to attend.
