Radio Host: Attacks on Trump at WHCD Prove He Was Right to Skip
Radio host Tony Katz said that the attacks made by comedian Michelle Wolf at Saturday's White House Correspondents’ Dinner toward President Trump proved that the president made the right choice by not attending the event.
The president instead skipped the dinner for the second straight year and on Saturday held a rally in Michigan.
Wolf took jabs at the president and also mocked White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.
"How does it not prove that President Trump was right not to show up, to not be a part of it?" Katz said.
Trump called the dinner a "very big, boring bust" and said Wolf "bombed."
While Washington, Michigan, was a big success, Washington, D.C., just didn’t work. Everyone is talking about the fact that the White House Correspondents Dinner was a very big, boring bust...the so-called comedian really “bombed.” @greggutfeld should host next year! @PeteHegseth

Democratic strategist Antjuan Seawright said that by holding the rally instead of attending this year's dinner, Trump "went to where he's comfortable."
"He went back to a rhetoric that he is used to and where he gets applause from his base," Seawright said.
"He started doing what Donald Trump does best and that's 'Misleader-in-chief.' He started peddling the right-wing, red meat rhetoric and got his crowd going," he added.
Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) also called out Trump on Twitter over his rally, noting a drop in nationwide auto sales and how Michigan-based Ford is "shedding most of its car lineup."
Dear @realDonaldTrump: US auto sales dropped 8%; Ford is shedding most of its car lineup; and GM is cutting 1,500 jobs.

Katz added that Wolf's attack on Sanders shows that conservative women are not given the same credibility and respect as liberals by women's groups.
"We don't accept conservative women as women," he said. "It's obvious, it's everywhere, it's constant, it's consistent, it's horrific and it's wrong."
