The last hour a sitting chairwoman bounced the White House Correspondents Dinner( WHCD) was in 1981, when President Ronald Reagan bounced the happen after an slaughter endeavor had been attained on their own lives. When current President Donald Trump announced in February not even a month into his presidency that he wouldnt is currently under the WHCD, it caused a lot more than a few eyebrows. Even though hes skippingthe WHCD in order to hold a rally to celebrate his first 100 eras in bureau in Pennsylvania, the White House Correspondents Dinner memes and tweets prove that the night was still memorable, even without the POTUS.
To be honest, I dont recall Trumps White House is all that surprised that the president wasnt exactly missed. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee told George Stephanopoulos in an interview last Sunday on The Week: I think its various kinds of naive of us to think that we can all walk into a apartment for a couple of hours and suppose that some of that friction isnt there, contributing: You know, one of the things we say in the South[ is] If a Girl Scout egged your home, would you buy cookies from her? I think that this is a fairly same scenario. Theres no reason for him to be done in order to and sit and suppose like this is going to be just another Saturday night.
Trump knocked off the night by reminding everyone 😛 TAGEND
But Twitter responded. And the best memes and tweets from the night picture( is again) that the desire to #resist is strong amongst the American people.
