CFP: “Hardy-Har-Ha!”. The sound of canned laughter when the heroes of the mainstream media convened for their ongoing Donald Trump-hate-fest at last night’s Dinner with No Dignity White House Correspondents’ annual get together.
They tossed a morale boost to their disgruntled heroes, 2016 election losers Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton; a pathetic stab at bravado while their industry heads deeper into irrelevancy and financial failure.
Records were broken at the feast. Hardy-Har-Har comedian Hasan Minhaj got a standing ovation for lines such as “Trump, the Liar-in-Chief, which he swiped from patriots who called Obama just that a thousand and one times before.
“Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein spoke to the White House Correspondents Association dinner, recalling their most famous story to the press corps gathered as the media is under attack from President Trump and others in the administration.” (Variety, April 29, 2017)
In the topsy-turvy world in which they star, it’s the downtrodden bedraggled media— and not the president— who is under attack.
