Gov. Ron DeSantis angrily denied he would have attended the White House Correspondents’ Dinner after his name was listed in the program.
The Florida governor's name was listed in the program as an attendee, but DeSantis denounced the event and insisted he would never consider going, reported Florida Politics.
"So, I never -- I would never attend that," DeSantis told reporters. "I have no interest in that. I did not watch it. I do not care what they do. But for them to advertise me when that invitation was rejected by my office, that is a lie."
Host Trevor Noah took a few shots at DeSantis during the dinner, and President Joe Biden mocked his feud with the Walt Disney Company, but the governor seemed more troubled that he was erroneously listed as an attendee.
"So the idea that I was there was false, the idea that I ever would have gone is false, and why they would want to perpetuate a lie about that, I don’t know," DeSantis said. "But I think it just shows you why that cabal of people in D.C. and New York are so reviled by so many Americans. I think that’s a reputation that’s been well-deserved.”
Desantis is all worked up this morning about the WH Correspondents Dinner listing him as an invited guest. He says he would never attend one since they are a \u201ccabal of people in DC and NY reviled by so many Americans.\u201dpic.twitter.com/TDCIfRXfZG— Ron Filipkowski \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\udde6 (@Ron Filipkowski \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\udde6) 1651503851
