President Donald Trump plans to once again skip the White House Correspondents Dinner this year, and his reasoning is driving the media bananas.
“I call them novelists,” Trump said of journalists, according to Daily Caller White House correspondent Saagar Enjeti.
“I probably won’t do it”…”I sort of feel that the press is so bad,”….”It’s so fake, it’s so made up. I mean, ‘sources say’ and they have no sources. They’re like novelists. I call them novelists,” Enjeti quoted the president saying about the annual dinner.
Politico is reporting White House Correspondents’ Association President Margaret Talev said the president will send his press secretary, Sarah Sanders, to the dinner instead.
