The White House Correspondents Dinner: The Media Debases Itself Once Again

Those who are perplexed as to why the mainstream media is held in such low esteem by a good portion of the American public need look no further than the nauseating and quite deplorable exhibition of Trump bashing on display at the White House Correspondents Dinner this past Saturday.

The original intent of the event was to bring the President and the press together for an entertaining evening of poking fun at the commander-in-chief.

After the vulgar, profanity-laced diatribe masquerading as “humor”by alleged comedian Michelle Wolf, many journalists, who have a modicum of introspection and perspective are praying for the event to die an unceremonious death.

This is the second year President Trump has been notorious by his absence.

And, who can blame him? The event has degenerated into a bash Trump in absentia gala run by members of the deranged Resistance.

But, it was Trump who had the last laugh.

Michelle Wolf was simply following her marching orders as a member of the opposition. Vulgarity and poor taste is condoned even encouraged by those who cannot abide the results of the election, as it is done for the higher purpose of driving a duly elected president from office.

No one but members of the political and media establishments participate in this orgy of self-congratulation.Trump has diminished the event and by being absent twice has had the last laugh on the mainstream media. How pathetic the entire exercise has become without a president to be the object of liberal jokesters.

The glitzy, celebrity-filled Hollywood charade has degenerated to a unhinged display of Trump hatred that when viewed by the rest of the country, only enhances the public’s low opinion of the Fourth Estate.

Someone should have hung a sign outside the door of the event proclaiming: “Hate has no home here.”
