Trump orders boycott of White House Correspondents’ Dinner after his Twitter meltdown over press scrutiny

Published

on

President Donald Trump has ordered everyone in his administration to boycott the White House Correspondents’ Dinner amid anger of media coverage of his administration.

Politico reports that Trump’s boycott order “was conveyed to agency chiefs of staff on Tuesday morning by White House Cabinet Secretary Bill McGinley, who indicated that the order was coming from the president himself.”

Trump on Tuesday morning had a massive Twitter meltdown in which he lashed out at multiple media outlets, ranging from the New York Times to MSNBC to CNN.

Among other things, Trump said that the strength of the U.S. economy should render him immune to criticism — despite the fact that former President Bill Clinton was impeached during a time of even stronger economic growth — and he suggested that the New York Times give him a personal apology for its coverage of his campaign’s multiple contacts with Russian government officials during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump is scheduled to have a campaign rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin on the night of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Trump's racist Twitter rant on Sunday — in which he suggested that four nonwhite congresswomen, three of whom were born in the United States, are "originally" from somewhere else and should therefore "go back" — might have seemed at first like a spontaneous eruption of racist rage from the simmering bigot in the White House.

Soon, however, it became clear that this was strategic. Trump thinks it's a winning move to echo the claims of David Duke and other white nationalists who believe the United States is for white people. He justified his racism by saying that "many people agree with me," and by continuing to rave on Twitter about how the real purveyors of "racist hatred" are those who look askance at his embracing the rhetoric of Stormfront and the KKK.
