I MAY Go to the White House Correspondents' Dinner Now

Donald Trump and Michelle Wolf

Donald Trump and Michelle Wolf

According to Trump, Wolf "bombed so badly last year" that decision makers were left no choice but to ditch the tradition of having a comedian host the annual event.

Wolf's tweet is in reference to Trump's support of Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman in the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

In case you missed it, the next White House Correspondents' Association dinner won't feature a comedian, circumventing tradition.

"Like many other historians, I have been deeply disturbed by the Trump campaign more deeply disturbed than by any other presidential campaign in our history", he said in a video statement, expressing alarm that Americans might "forget who we are as a people and succumb to historical amnesia".

Trump's response had been evasive until yesterday when he said outright he stands with Saudi Arabia.

Everyone involved in the accident was uninjured, and according to Kerith Burke, Curry later arrived at the Warriors' shootaround. In 12 games this season, the two-time NBA MVP is averaging 29.5 points per game in addition to 6.1 assists and 5 rebounds.

Notoriously thin-skinned Donald Trump, who skipped out on last year's roasting, responded by teasing he may attend this time.

The president's tweet about the correspondents dinner "doesn't necessarily mean" he will attend in April, a White House official said Wednesday morning. He also came for last year's WHCD host Michelle Wolf, saying that she "bombed". Maybe I will go?' This week, the association took a more drastic step and announced that they were doing away with a comedian altogether next year.

'The @whca are cowards. The last time he showed up to one of these functions was in 2011, when he was mercilessly roasted by that year's host, Seth Meyers, and then-President Obama.

Chernow, whose biography of Alexander Hamilton became the basis of "Hamilton", Lin-Manuel Miranda's hit Broadway musical, is unlikely to go easy on Trump.

Wolf slammed the White House Correspondents Association on Monday for choosing Chernow instead of another comic in her own mold.
