EXCLUSIVE – President Trump has canceled the White House holiday party for the media, making the decades-old tradition a victim of his increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations.

The annual Christmas-season gathering was a significant perk for those covering the White House, as well as other Washington reporters, anchors and commentators, and New York media executives would regularly fly in for the occasion. At its peak, the invitation-only soirees grew so large that there were two back-to-back events, one for broadcast outlets and one for print organizations.

Great move by President Trump!! Why reward the rebellious and lying press?

They're so awful and disrespectful towards him, the presidency and his family.

President Trump is one of the most honest chief executives in a long time.

The media are his enemy.

So he refuses to be a hypocrite and attend the annual correspondents' dinner or to throw a White House party for his enemies.

Financially, he has saved the media from financial collapse. The New York Times, for example, was on its last legs until he was elected. Now it has rebounded as the leader of the Resistance.


When he inevitably leaves the White House in January, 2021 (sob!), the media are really going to miss him.


The media will become bored being a mere cheerleader for the new Democratic president. And some of the weaker prints will close down. (Yea!)

A canceled party. So what.

Trying to count that as some sort of victory is pathetic.

You are a bean counter, right? Trump just saved the country at least a million dollars on a party that a lot of the press was going to boycott anyways.

Like last year, I wasn’t planning on going. I don’t break bread w/people who don’t like me. I feel sorry for those who wanted 2 go. Party on? The White House’s holiday press soiree may be a ghost of Christmas past - The Washington Post https://www.washingtonpost.com/life...c39b02-faa1-11e8-8d64-4e79db33382f_story.html

The Person of the Year will interpret it as an attack, discuss the attack ad nauseam, which in turn will enable the President to rub more salt on it to amplify the "see, they are self-aggrandizing douchebags" angle.

Its his approach to everything: make an opponent stoop to your level of absurdity, then attack them for being absurd. Its clearly been effective for 50+ years, so why change now.

Well, it shows how paranoid, vindictive and childish the Trump administration is, as well as Trump's own personal sense of entitlement. The party itself is meaningless compared to what it's cancelling means as a window into the state of Trump's mind.

And just like that, plans by CNN staff to break away from the party so that they could clandestinely scrub the inside of their assholes with Trump's toothbrush are foiled. #StableGenius!!

Of course you do because you support division instead of unity. Trump and his supporters are dividers and not Uniters. Thank you for proving me right about not only trump but trump supporters .:lamo

At least he's awake at 3am, unlike Hillary and Obama.

Sorry bub, but I know many conservatives that are against trump so you only prove your comments ignorant and dishonest. For such a newbie you’re getting a bad rep.
