In case you missed it, the next White House Correspondents’ Association dinner won’t feature a comedian, circumventing tradition.
It comes after Michelle Wolf’s utter roasting of the Trump administration and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders at this year’s event, which they didn’t like. At all.
Instead, the WHCA announced historian and author Ron Chernow will be speaking at the event, and he presumably won’t be teasing anyone.
It’s a decision that’s clearly pleased Trump, who tweeted that he’s now maaaaybe thinking of going, instead of ditching the dinner as he did this year. And last year.
So-called comedian Michelle Wolf bombed so badly last year at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner that this year, for the first time in decades, they will have an author instead of a comedian. Good first step in comeback of a dying evening and tradition! Maybe I will go?

Wolf earlier tweeted the WHCA were “cowards” for its decision to abandon comedy, but in response to Trump labelling her a “so-called” comedian, she hit right back.
After all, Trump did have harsher words for Wolf than he did for Saudi Arabia.
