At any rate, the speaker at this year's event will NOT be a comedian for the first time in 16 years.
Ron Chernow, who wrote the 2004 biography of Hamilton that became a play, seems like a good choice.
Since Trump criticized the cast of "Hamilton" last year, he is unlikely to attend - but Jim Ocasta will likely be in attendance.
A stand up comic making fun of Trump could generate a real shitstorm. Nobody wanted to be responsible.
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.
Trump also ordered EVERYBODY else to boycott the dinner as well.
The tweet below says a lot about Trump:
Sorry to say but @foxandfriends is by far the best of the morning political shows on television. It rightfully has BY FAR the highest ratings, not even close. Morning Psycho (Joe), who helped get me elected in 2016 by having me on (free) all the time, has nosedived, too Angry...
..Dumb and Sick. A really bad show with low ratings - and will only get worse. CNN has been a proven and long term ratings and beyond disaster. In fact, it rewarded Chris Cuomo with a now unsuccessful prime time slot, despite his massive failure in the morning. Only on CNN!
There is an trend; he's boycotting everything now, including that the Dem's exists in the House. Yes the picture is as I indicated a while ago as: he wants to be like Putin or Kim, thus an dictator. Just put all the "loyalists" in place and "dictate" and cover your ass. Barr and the Supreme Court will help in that. Mueller's report was totally presented the wrong way by Mueller (on purpose?) which is actually now helping Trump. If he wins again in 2020 then this country will absolutely become an full dictatorship as Russia. The Democratic Party will be gone for sure.
America wake up, the "dictatorship" is now just about completed and right around the corner.
