The Press Dinner is too hot for Trump
By Stephanie Fuentes
I can’t believe how big of a wimp Trump really has turned out to be. He is so narcissistic he can’t even withstand a little good natured deprecating humor. He is the only president since President Reagan, who was recovering from an assassination attempt, to miss the gala. To my horror, Trump is the first president since Calvin Coolidge in 1924 to purposely skip the dinner. This is Trump’s 2nd year evading the tradition.
That should tell you something about the character of the man you selected to lead the free world. Now when it comes to the N.R.A. he seems to bow down and kiss the ring. He has not missed an annual convention and this year he brought V.P. Pence. Some speculate Pence came for his own agenda should he get the opportunity to pick up the mantel from an impeached president….
The Daily Kos reported, Trump will not be speaking at this year’s annual NAACP convention. This is the second year in a row that he has declined an invitation to speak at the event. The same invitation has been extended to, and accepted by, his predecessors in previous years— with Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H. W.
Bush, and Ronald Reagan all speaking at the event. Trump is the first President in 30 years to break tradition.
However, in his words “Blacks love me!”. Well then one would say that should be a friendly audience. President Obama had no problems with that audience [Wink]. Trump has been disgusted with this tradition since he was teased by Obama about his “birther” claims. I’m still wondering how anyone took that claim seriously. The F.B.I. is very clear on the rules to be president and being a native born citizen is pretty foremost. Not like they missed that one. Well let’s see if he attends next year.
