Last Friday, Bloomberg announced a cancellation for this year’s White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) dinner. However, the organization’s representatives will be sent to the dinner. The New York Times had earlier reported that the New York-based magazine would not host its traditional after party. Similarly, Vanity Fair, which has always co-hosted an exclusive party with Bloomberg, announced it wouldn’t host the party this year.
Hot Air reports:
“We’ve taken a break from the dinner in the past,” Graydon Carter, the editor of Vanity Fair, wrote in an email, adding that he planned to spend the weekend fishing in Connecticut instead. Mr. Carter, who has feuded with Mr. Trump for decades, was asked whether he had a particular reason for canceling this year’s festivities. “Trump,” Mr. Carter replied, “and the fish.”
The White House Correspondents Association dinner is scheduled for April 29th at the Washington Hilton
