Trump abruptly cancels traditional White House Christmas party for reporters: Fox News

Published

on

President Donald Trump has reportedly squashed a decades-long tradition by canceling the annual White House Christmas party for members of the media.

Fox News’ Howard Kurtz reports that the Christmas party has become “a victim” of Trump’s “increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations.”

Just because the annual media Christmas party is canceled doesn’t mean that no one in the media industry will be going to the White House for holiday festivities, however, as Kurtz reports that “selected media people generally favorable to Trump, including a few Fox News hosts” have been invited to “a full panoply of other parties this holiday season.”

Trump this year has regularly labeled the press as the “enemy of the people,” and the White House also went through a failed attempt to revoke CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s White House press pass.

Trump’s hamfisted attempt to wag the dog with Iran unraveled fast

Published

Welcome to another edition of What Fresh Hell?, Raw Story’s roundup of news items that might have become controversies under another regime, but got buried – or were at least under-appreciated – due to the daily firehose of political pratfalls, unhinged tweet storms and other sundry embarrassments coming out of the current White House.

We can’t say with any certainty that Iran wasn’t behind the attacks on two ships in the Gulf of Oman this week, but it is clear that the Trump regime’s account of what happened unraveled very quickly. Shortly after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo released a video of a small vessel removing something Pompeo said was a mine from the damaged port side of one of the ships, the vessel's owner said that it had actually been struck on its starboard side, above the waterline, by a flying object. If this were in fact an effort to pull a Gulf of Tonkin, then the fact that this was the best dog-wagging they could conjure up would be downright pathetic.
