When members of the media get together to congratulate each other and bash Trump in a couple weeks, the president will be many miles away in Michigan, rallying with supporters. It’s such a better use of his time.

Trump to hold rally on same night as White House correspondents’ dinner
President Trump will speak at a campaign rally in Michigan on April 28, the same night of the White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) dinner, the president’s campaign announced Tuesday.
The event will take place at 7 p.m. in Washington, Mich., located just outside of Detroit.
It is the second consecutive year that Trump will hold a rally outside Washington instead of attending the annual dinner. Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is expected to attend this year to represent the White House.
“While the fake news media will be celebrating themselves with the denizens of Washington society in the swamp that evening, President Trump will be in a completely different Washington, celebrating our national economic revival with patriotic Americans,” Michael Glassner, chief operating officer of the Trump campaign, said in a statement.
Trump indicated in an interview earlier this month that he would skip the event for a second straight year.
Why would Trump ever attend the White House correspondents’ dinner? So that liberal journalists can insult him to his face?
