Hilarious, President Trump Cancels White House Christmas Party for Press Corps


President Donald Trump has canceled the annual Christmas party the White House usually throws for the press corps.

The party has become an annual tradition, but with the hate the media displays for Trump on a daily basis, it is entirely understandable that Trump would be uninterested in hosting a feels good party for that pack of braying jackals.

According to Fox News:

The annual Christmas-season gathering was a significant perk for those covering the White House, as well as other Washington reporters, anchors and commentators, and New York media executives would regularly fly in for the occasion. At its peak, the invitation-only soirees grew so large that there were two back-to-back events, one for broadcast outlets and one for print organizations.

Trump did allow this event to continue last year, but he did not pose for photos with the press:

The White House made no announcement that it was dropping the press party. The president and first lady threw such a gathering last December but did not pose for pictures. Trump made a brief appearance with his wife and offered a few welcoming remarks.

But don’t imagine this is because Trump is the Grinch:

While dropping the media party, the White House is in the midst of a full panoply of other parties this holiday season. Selected media people generally favorable to Trump, including a few Fox News hosts, have made those guest lists.

In fact, we have but to look at an ignorant tweet by NPR’s April Ryan to show just why this cancelation was a good idea:

“FYI, I had never planned to attend the White House Christmas party last year or this year. Why break bread with folks who hate you & call you names?” she wrote. “That is not the Christmas spirit I know. I feel sorry for those who wanted to go and can’t. SAD!”

Other members of the press also whined about missing the party:
