I wasn’t surprised when I heard that Donald Trump announced he would not be attending the annual Correspondents dinner.
This man is extremely arrogant and narcissistic and can’t take the HEAT, so I guess he will stay out the KITCHEN!!!
The people are now calling for Alec Baldwin to replace him, at the dinner!!
Dear White House Correspondents Association: Please ask Alec Baldwin to stand in for Donald Trump at your annual dinner. Thank you.

It is tradition for the president to attend the annual dinner, which takes place every year to raise money for journalism scholarships. The last president to miss the event was Ronald Reagan – who was recovering from being shot.
At the dinner, the president is usually subjected to a “roasting” by a comedian, and also delivers a speech that often pokes fun at the press – a difficult task for Trump, who has derided the media since his presidential campaign.
