Donald Trump is again skipping the White House Correspondents Dinner, and instead holding a rally in rural Michigan.

But unlike last year, when his staff boycotted, this year Trump advisers and former advisers came out.

Kellyanne Conway's husband, a Trump critic, did not join her, so she third-wheeled it with former adviser Gary D. Cohn and his wife Lisa Pevaroff.

"I wake up every day and choose to be happy," she said. "I really don't read 99.9% of the negative because it's so reflexive and unthoughtful. I'm so blessed to walk into that White House every day and do on behalf of the country I love."

Conway also said that Trump is part of a phenomenon she calls the "democratization of information" and praised him for speaking directly to his voters.
