White House Correspondents Association forced to cancel traditional dinner second year in a row

The annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner has been cancelled for 2021, marking the second year in a row the event has been ended due to COVID-19.

“We have worked through any number of scenarios over the last several months, but to put it plainly: while improving rapidly, the COVID-19 landscape is just not at a place where we could make the necessary decisions to go ahead with such a large indoor event,” the group noted in a statement.

“Our top priority remains ensuring that journalists can continue to safely work from the White House and fulfill their vital role in keeping the public informed,” the statement added.

“Expect information in the coming weeks about our annual membership town hall, at which we will outline plans to safely begin easing some virus-related restrictions,” the statement continued.

In contrast with the White House Correspondents’ Association, the Texas Rangers Major League Baseball team was at full capacity on opening day this month. More than 38,000 people attended the game.

In 2019, then-President Trump decided to skip the dinner completely (for the third year in a row). He chose to instead hold a political rally.

“Thee the dinner is so boring and so negative that we’re going to hold a very positive rally instead,” Trump said. “The correspondents’ dinner is too negative. I like positive things.”

The next award dinner is scheduled for Apr. 30, 2022. Maybe COVID-19 will be controlled enough by then for the group to present its awards in person once again.

Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) For more info visit any tab on this site Thanks a lot GOOD LUCK………._ http://www.works91.com

No big deal. All they do is pat each other on the back for being great liars.

Boo boo. I am devastated. It ain’t happening while JObama is in office. It’s no fun to roast someone who doesn’t even know where he is.

They are as bad as Hollywood. Eating a fancy meal and patting each other on the back. Too bad none of them will report the truth to the American people. You might hearing something at a White House Press Conference, but is ever the truth. No hard questions are ever asked of the current Administration as compared as the difficult questions asked of the Trump Administration.
Are you saying that President Joe wouldn’t even know where he was if the Dinner was at the White House? He would ask, “Why am I here?”

COVID-19? Hey, right. Maybe they will do us all a favor and declare this gathering of liars and liberals (Sorry, I guess they are one in the same, aren’t they?) a perpetual “COVID 19 Super-Spreader Event” so we don’t have to listen to those a******s anymore.

WHPC “Journalism”? What “Journalism”? It is simply propaganda! All Democrats (vast majority of Journalists) are VILE, EVIL people. Only exceeded in their VILE, EVIL ways by Biden and the Biden Administration (which included Obama!)

They practically own the media so to them this is Nothing!!! Them media spreads whatever it wants and frankly I’m tired of living with this constant barragement of nothing but terrifying news. I don’t want to live the rest of my life sucking on the FEAR BOTTLE!!!!

He obviously has deteriorated to the extent that his handlers can’t take the chance that he will exhibit another mental episode. There is no doubt that we will see less and less appearances of our president. His handlers can’t take the chance.
