President Donald Trump is skipping the White House Correspondents Dinner in 2019 as he has done in past years.
“The dinner is so boring and so negative,” President Trump said on his way to the border Friday, as reported by the Washington Times.
While the D.C. reporters enjoy each others’ company without the president, Trump plans to convene a competing rally so his supporters can watch Trump instead of the vitriolic Correspondents’ Dinner ceremony.
A historian named Ron Chernow is speaking this year instead of a comedian after Michelle Wolf’s vindictive routine at the 2018 dinner.
BLP reported last year: Comedian Michelle Wolf has lost the support of the White House Correspondents Association following her disastrous performance at this weekend’s Correspondents Dinner.
Wolf’s vulgar attacks on Sarah Sanders and Kellyanne Conway proved too much for many viewers. Wolf’s terrible set was made worse by Sanders’ dignified blank looks at the comedian during the performance.
Wolf first appeared on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah in 2016, but was listed as a former cast member when she appeared at the White House.
The Correspondents head Margaret Talev from Bloomberg defended Wolf on CNN, but then backed off that defense in a statement. People are sick and tired of gross so-called liberal entertainers mouthing off with no professional consequences.
“Last night’s program was meant to offer a unifying message about our common commitment to a vigorous and free press while honoring civility, great reporting and scholarship winners, not to divide people. Unfortunately, the entertainer’s monologue was not in the spirit of that mission.”

U.S. Intelligence Reports that China Hid the Extent of the Wuhan Virus Outbreak
According to a Bloomberg report, China has not been forthcoming about the extent of the Wuhan Virus in its country.
It has apparently, under-reported “both total cases and deaths it’s suffered from the disease, the U.S. intelligence community concluded in a classified report to the White House, according to three U.S. officials.”
The officials requested to stay anonymous because the report is confidential and declined to give further details about its contents. The main takeaway though is “that China’s public reporting on cases and deaths is intentionally incomplete. Two of the officials said the report concludes that China’s numbers are fake.”
The White House received this report last week, according to one of the aforementioned officials.
The pandemic originated in China’s Hubei province in late 2019, but the country has officially reported only about 82,000 cases and 3,300 deaths, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University. America, on the other hand, has 189,000 cases and more than 4,000 deaths which is allegedly the largest publicly and reported outbreak in the world.
“The reality is that we could have been better off if China had been more forthcoming,” Vice President Mike Pence said on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 on CNN. “What appears evident now is that long before the world learned in December that China was dealing with this, and maybe as much as a month earlier than that, that the outbreak was real in China.”
China imposed one of the strictest lockdowns of all nations afflicted by this pandemic. However, the Chinese government has not been transparent about its recording strategies and is constantly changing its methods for recording cases.
Republicans have been skeptical of the numbers coming out of Beijing.
“The claim that the United States has more coronavirus deaths than China is false,” declared Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse. “Without commenting on any classified information, this much is painfully obvious: The Chinese Communist Party has lied, is lying, and will continue to lie about coronavirus to protect the regime.”
U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has called on China to be transparent about their outbreaks.
“This data set matters,” he said during a news conference in Washington on March 31, 2020. The development of medical treatments and public-health measures to combat the virus “so that we can save lives depends on the ability to have confidence and information about what has actually transpired,” he asserted.
The Wuhan Virus pandemic illustrates the pitfalls of globalism and global integration at all costs.
When authoritarian regimes like China are treated like equals on the international stage in terms of trade and migration, Western countries could be susceptible to demographic displacement, national security breaches, viral outbreaks, and corporate espionage.
This sage may be the wake-up call the West needs in trying to socially distance itself from China.
