Gutfeld on CNN whining about Trump skipping the WHCD


♪ ♪>>Greg: CNN’S CUE BALL OF CONCERN, BRIAN STELTER, SLAM DONALD TRUMP FOR SKIPPING THIS YEAR’S CORRESPONDENTS’ DINNER.>>IN THE PAST, PRESIDENT HAVE SHOWN UP EVEN IF THEY’RE ANGRY AND DEPRESSED. IT’S USEFUL FOR WHITE HOUSE AIDES TO SCHMOOZE WITH REPORTERS. IT’S HELPFUL FOR US TO GET TO KNOW OUR SOURCES. THERE IS VALUE IN THESE EVENTS. IT’S YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF WHAT WE ARE SEEING, THE ADMINISTRATION’S ATTACK AGAINST THE MEDIA. IT TAKES MANY FORMS.>>Greg: ‘S ARE NOW SKIPPING A DINNER IS AN ATTACK ON THE MEDIA? BRIAN IS TAKING THIS ATTACK ON THE PRESS SHTICK TO CRAZY HEIGHTS. NO OFFENSE BUT MAY BE SKIPPING A MEAL NOW AND THEN MIGHT NOT BE A BAD THING FOR SOME PEOPLE IN THE PRESS. I INCLUDE MYSELF. THAT’S WHY I’M WALKING MORE, JESSE. AS FOR SCHMOOZING, BEING USEFUL, NO, FOR US THIS DINNER IS JUST AN ORGY. SWEATY LEMMINGS, PEERING OVER THEIR SHOULDER TO SEE WHO MIGHT STUMBLE INTO THE STINKING, OVERCROWDED MESS HALL. THE HALITOSIS IS SO THICK YOU COULD CUT IT WITH A CAKE KNIFE. SOME SAY TRUMP’S AVOIDANCE HAS COMMON SENSE. WHY GO TO A PLACE WHEN THE ENTIRE THEME WILL BE ORANGE MAN, BAD. THE SAME PLATITUDES EXPRESSED BY THE SAME — HERE’S A THOUGHT. WHY NOT HIRE HOST WHO DOESN’T APPEAR AT THE PREDICTABLE JOKES. IMAGINE JORDAN PETERSON, JOE ROGAN, DAVE RUBIN. THAT’S THE REAL COWARD, BEING AFRAID TO CHALLENGE THE MEDIA MOB ORTHODOXY. GREG IS FOR CHARITY, TRUE. BUT BY SKIPPING THE DINNER, TRUMP HAS STRIPPED AWAY THE NOVELTY THAT HAS CHANGED THE CHARITY EVENT. HE MADE IT GREAT AGAIN. IT’S NOW ABOUT JOURNALISM. IN ORDER THEY ARE MISERABLE. DANA, DO YOU KNOW THIS EVENT, IT SUPPOSED TO BE FOR CHARITY AND THAT’S GOOD BUT IT BECAME EVENTS FOR PEOPLE LIKE AVENATTI, THE FLAME OF THE MOMENT, THAT WOULD SHOW UP.>>Dana: YOU KNOW PEOPLE WHO WOULD INVITE AVENATTI. YOU KNOW THEM VERY WELL. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. I WENT SIX YEARS IN A ROW WITH THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION. I’M NOT A NIGHT OWL. I DID LIKE TO SEE THE FOLKS. I DID LIKE TO SEE PEOPLE. IT WAS FUN. IT WAS ALWAYS COLDER THAN YOU THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE. YOU DRESS UP IN YOUR MISERABLE. HE’S NOT COMING TO THE DINNER. LET IT GO. ALSO THEY DO HAVE A POINT. IT’S NOT LIKE HE’S JUST SKIPPING THE DINNER. HE’S GOING TO GO TO A RALLY AND SAY I CAME HERE INSTEAD OF BEING WITH THEM AND HE’S GOING TO ATTACK THE MEDIA.>>Greg: IT IS WIN-WIN. THEY GET TO SULK AND HE GETS TO LOOK AT PEOPLE SULKING. IT’S LIKE THEY GOT STOOD UP FOR THE PROM.>>Jesse: THEY RUINED THE WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT’S DINNER PARTY AND NOW THEY ARE COMPLAINING THAT TRUMP IS NOT GOING. THEY HAVE BEEN BRUTAL TO HIM AND HE DOESN’T CARE ANYMORE. THIS THING PEAKED A LONG TIME AGO. USED TO HAVE BETTER CELEBRITIES AND BETTER CELEBRITIES. I WANT TO GO PLAYERS AGO, IT PROBABLY PEOPLE THEN. NOW I DON’T GO ANYMORE. OUT OF RESPECT, YOU SHOULDN’T REALLY TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE’S PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS. I AM ABOVE ALL OF THAT. I WOULD NEVER DO ANYTHING LIKE THAT. I DON’T LIKE WHEN GROWN MEN SEEM SO CONCERNED AND UPSET ABOUT THINGS. IT’S LIKE YOU ARE A GROWN MAN. CONSTANTLY OFFENDED. WHAT GROWN MEN DO YOU KNOW THAT ARE CONSTANTLY FUNDED?>>Emily: WHO ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?>>Jesse: THE GUY ON CNN. [LAUGHTER]>>Greg: A JUAN, THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT THE EVENT IS THEY ARE HAVING A HISTORIAN — SO IT’S GOING BACK TO ITS ROOTS. ONCE AGAIN, DONALD TRUMP HAS IMPROVED SOMETHING.>>Juan: IS THAT RIGHT?>>Greg: HE HAS MADE THE CORRESPONDENCE AND A GREAT AGAIN. ARE YOU GOING?>>Juan: I GO USUALLY. I HAVEN’T FOLLOWED, I HAVE TO CHECK IT OUT. I’VE BEEN INVITED TO A BUNCH OF PARTIES. MY FEELING IS I AGREE WITH WHAT DANA IS SAYING. I THINK HE USES THAT TO PLAY TO RIGHT WING GRIEVANCES. THE PRESIDENT IS SO EVIL. [LAUGHTER]>>Greg: YOU KNOW WHAT HE DOES, HE IS LIKE THE NONSENSE REGURGITATE HER. HE TAKES WHAT YOU SAY AND SPITS IT OUT AND IT MEAN SOMETHING DIFFERENT.>>Juan: I HEARD HIM SAY THAT HE’S GONNA GO TO THE RALLIES AND SAM HERE WITH YOU AND NOT OF THE EVIL PEOPLE AT THE PRESS. HE SAYS FAKE NEWS, AND IT TURNS OUT ACCORDING TO THE MUELLER REPORT COME HE’S TELLING MORE LIES ABOUT THE NEWS AND THE MEDIA IS TELLING.>>Jesse: NO COLLISION, HOW IS THAT?>>Juan: OH, I WASN’T TRYING TO FIRE JIM COMEY.>>Greg: IT’S ABOUT THE CORRESPONDENCE DINNER. EMILY, ARE YOU NEW — WOULD YOU GO?>>Emily: I AM NOT ATTENDING.>>Greg: YOU WILL MISS GETTING HIT ON BY JEFFREY TOBIN.>>Emily: HE MADE IT SOUND AS — MADE IT SOUND EXCITING. STELTER FOCUSES ON, WHY WOULD HE CARE SO MUCH. HE SAYS THE TWO REASONS TO COME ARE TO CELEBRATE THE FIRST AMENDMENT AND RAISE MONEY FOR THE SCHOLARSHIP. ATTENDING DOES NOT PRECLUDE EITHER OF THOSE AND HE SAYS HE CELEBRATES THE FIRST AMENDMENT DAILY WITH HIS REPORTING.>>Jesse: SCHMOOZING WITH WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS.>>Dana: IT’S FUNNY BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT SAID NO ONE FROM THE WHITE HOUSE WILL GO. THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE FROM
