Donald Trump Punks Out Of The White House Correspondents Dinner aka The Nerd Prom

Donald Trump announced Saturday that he’s skipping the 2017 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner.

“I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year,” Trump tweeted. “Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!”

 Multiple media outlets including Bloomberg News, Vanity Fair, and the New Yorker had canceled attending and its annual after events. CNN, MSNBC, and other mainstream news media outlets and independent journalists are among those still deciding whether to attend especially after the Trump’s White House treatment of many mainstream media outlets that report unflattering news about the current administration.

Association president Jeff Mason said the dinner will still go on.

“The White House Correspondents’ Association looks forward to having its annual dinner on April 29,” Mason said in a statement.  “The WHCA takes note of President Donald Trump’s announcement on Twitter that he does not plan to attend the dinner, which has been and will continue to be a celebration of the First Amendment and the important role played by an independent news media in a healthy republic.”

Since Calvin Coolidge graced the dinner in 1924, every President has attended.

Drummer and producer Tommy Ramone, the last surviving original member of the influential New York punk quartet the Ramones, died Friday at his home in the Ridgewood area of Queens the band was a major influence on the punk rock movement in both the United States and, perhaps to a greater extent, the United Kingdom.

Born Erdelyi Tamas in Budapest, Hungary, and known professionally as Tom or T.

He also co-produced the latter two albums with Tony Bongiovi and Ed Stasium, respectively. He appeared on and co-produced the 1979 live Ramones opus “It’s Alive.”

After leaving the Ramones to concentrate on studio work, he co-produced the band’s 1984 album “Too Tough to Die” with Stasium.

On July 20, 1999, Dee Dee, Johnny, Joey, Tommy, Marky, and C.J. appeared together at the Virgin Megastore in New York City for an autograph signing. This was the last occasion on which the original four members of the group appeared together

Rolling Stone list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time and VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.  In 2002, the Ramones were ranked the second-greatest band of all time by Spin magazine, trailing only the Beatles. On March 18, 2002, the Ramones—the three founders and drummer Tommy Ramone—were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. 

In 2011, the group was awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.



Mitt Romney’s Son Tagg Wanted To “Take A Swing” At The President Obama During The Debates

During an interview with North Carolina radio host Bill LuMaye, Mitt Romney’s eldest son, Tagg Romney said that hearing the President Obama call his father a “liar” made him want to “jump out of [his] seat and … rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him.”

He continued:

“But you know you can’t do that because, well first because there’s a lot of Secret Service between you and him, but also because this is the nature of the process, they’re going to do everything they can do to try to make my dad into someone he’s not. We signed up for it. We’ve gotta kinda sit there and take our punches and then send them right back the other way.”

So is there anyone likeable in the Romney family other than their poor dog Seamus?

A little info on Tagg Romney.   Just two months ago, he went to court to stop a hospice for the dying from being built in his affluent neighborhood, the same neighborhood where his father rammed through a 94,000 sq. ft. temple a few years back.
