Lara Logan: Trump Doesn't Care That He's 'Snubbing' the Press by Skipping WH Correspondents' Dinner
POTUS to hold rally April 27 instead.
Former CBS News foreign correspondent Lara Logan joined Laura Ingraham Monday to react to President Trump once again skipping the the White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) dinner.
While criticizing the annual event, which is scheduled for April 27, the president said he had other plans for the day.
"The dinner is so boring and so negative that we're going to hold a very positive rally instead," said Trump, who has not attended the dinner since he took office.
Logan, who has spoken out against the mainstream media's anti-Trump coverage, wondered why the president would want to attend a dinner with people who see him as unfit for office and want him removed.
"Would you go to a dinner with a bunch of people who made it very clear that they were your enemies? It doesn't make sense for him," Logan said.
She noted that she has skipped the Correspondents' Dinner for several years because the annual event has become "very partisan."
"They make a lot of people very uncomfortable. They're not what they used to be. And journalists and journalistic organizations in this country need to stand up and go back to what we're supposed to be at our core," Logan said.
She added that the press has the right to be critical of the president, but they don't get to "weep about it" when he fires back.
"And this is very consistent with Donald Trump as a leader. It's a very bold move. He doesn't care that he's snubbing the 'elite press.' He doesn't care."
