To nobody's surprise, Trump is skipping the WHCD for the third year in a row because "he finds it boring", which is entirely logical for somebody who has absolutely no sense of humor at all. Instead, he will be attending "a really big rally" someplace to stir up his base.
The WHCD used to be fun to watch when Obama was president because Obama had a sense of humor.
Trump has NONE - which may be the reason that he decided to run for president.
When the definitive history of Donald Trump’s presidency is written, it’ll likely begin on April 30, 2011, long before he was actually elected.
That’s when Seth Meyers, then the anchor of “Weekend Update” on “Saturday Night Live,” told a joke that, some believe, so infuriated Trump he resolved to run for president.
Speaking at the White House Correspondents' Dinner that night, Meyers acknowledged Trump in the audience, and then said: “Donald Trump has been saying he will run for president as a Republican, which is surprising, since I just assumed he was running as a joke.”
It got a big laugh, but not from Trump, who sat rigid and stone-faced in the audience, staring daggers at Meyers. A few more zingers followed.
Of course it’s impossible to know what, precisely, motivated Trump to run for president in 2016, but the comic beatdown he endured that night at the correspondents' dinner, not only from Meyers but also President Obama, did have a profound effect on him.
Meyers knew Trump would be at the dinner and he wanted to poke fun at him. Not just because he was hosting a popular reality show, “The Apprentice,” but also because Trump was promulgating the discredited birther conspiracy theory, alleging that Obama hadn’t been born in the U.S.
Meyers wasn’t the only one who taunted Trump that night. Obama also took a turn, mocking the birther conspiracy by playing his “birth video” — a clip from Disney’s “The Lion King” — and also praising Trump for demonstrating presidential leadership in firing Gary Busey on “The Apprentice.”
