Trump is holding a rally in Michigan tonight instead of attending the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. If you want to watch the rally, you’re in luck. Both FOX News and C-Span will be covering it.
The Washington Times reports:
Fox News, C-SPAN to cover Trump’s rally for his ‘favorite deplorables’
For the second year in a row, Mr. Trump will skip the White House Correspondent’s Dinner on Saturday, and instead join around 10,000 of his favorite people at a patriotic campaign-style rally in a Michigan sports arena.
“Why would I want to be stuck in a room with a bunch of fake news liberals who hate me?” the president asked a public message to his ardent fans. “I’m going to hold a rally in Michigan to spend the evening with my favorite deplorables who love our movement and love America.”
Some of those fans couldn’t wait.
Randal Thom of Lakefield, Minnesota and Cindy Hoffman of Independence, Iowa were the first to show up at Total Sports Park outside Detroit, arriving at 3 a.m. Friday — a full 49 hours before show time according to the Detroit News…
Fox News and C-SPAN will cover the rally live beginning at 7 p.m. ET. The other cable news networks — particularly CNN — have their cameras trained primarily on the White House Correspondents Dinner. CNN will begin their coverage at 7 p.m.; C-SPAN will join in at 9:30 p.m. for the after-dinner remarks by comedian Michelle Wolf, praised for her “feminist edge” by the White House Correspondents Association itself, and a contributor to Netflix and Comedy Central.
It will be far more entertaining than the self-congratulating journalists in Washington, DC, that’s for sure.
