In a showing of unprecedented cowardice, President Donald Trump announced that he will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ dinner. Trump is likely afraid that the audience will skewer him and his disgusting policies, and rather than subject himself to their ire, he is going to sit the event out. The last time a president did not attend the event was former President Ronald Reagan, and he did not attend because he was recovering from surgery after an attempted assassination on his life. It seems words are indeed weapons and they have wounded Trump so deeply that he cannot face his accusers, despite having the ability to have the last word during the event. In an attempt to justify his cowardice, Trump’s staff offered the most bizarre and nonsensical reasoning why he would not attend.
If a Girl Scout egged your house, would you buy cookies from her?
The reasoning seems to be because the media hasn’t given Trump a free pass on doing a horrible job as president, he won’t attend their party. Conversely, if Trump is indeed the biggest and baddest man who will protect the United States from all of its enemies, why is he afraid of a bunch of girl scouts?
