Beyond 100 days, Trump faces more legislative challenges

President Donald Trump has skipped the annual White House Correspondents' dinner in Washington overnight, leaving the crowd to mock him mercilessly in his absence.

After slaying his headlining set at the dinner, Minhaj returned to The Daily Show on Monday night to gloat about taking down Trump.

"I could not possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from the Washington swamp, spending my evening with all of you", he told the crowd.

Trump held that divisive tone throughout the speech, prompting former presidential adviser and senior CNN political analyst David Gergen to call the remarks "deeply disturbing" in a special prime-time edition of "CNN Newsroom" with John Berman and Poppy Harlow. "The age of Trump, you guys have to be more flawless than ever because you are how the president get his news". "Others may disagree about that". "As for the other guy, I think he's in Pennsylvania because he can't take a joke".

Also speaking at the event were legendary journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, who famously broke the story on Richard Nixon's Watergate scandal.

Trump entered the arena and said there is no place he'd rather be than in Pennsylvania to celebrate his 100th day. Though the White House created a website touting its accomplishments of the first 100 days, Trump has tried to downplay the importance of the marker, perhaps out of recognition that many of his campaign promises have gone unfulfilled.

The comments comes amid a period of escalated tension between the U.S. and North Korea, sparked by Trump's hardline diplomatic stance towards the rogue state.

"The leader of our country is not here, but that's because he lives in Moscow". The president loves whipping his fans into a frenzy and said that he might return to Harrisburg at the same time next year.




"We're going to give Americans the freedom to purchase the health care plans they want, not the health care forced on them by the government", Trump said. "Like, if this goes poorly, Steve Bannon gets to eat me". "But I think I speak for all of us when I say he's done far too much bombing this month".

Comedian Hasan Minhaj took multiple shots at President Trump during Saturday night's White House Correspondents' dinner for his abstention from consuming alcohol.

In his morning radio address Trump issued an assurance: "My only allegiance is to you, our wonderful citizens".

It was the split-screen image that President Donald Trump wanted, a living, breathing testament to just how out of touch the "elites" in Washington really are and how he remains, despite all the barbs thrown at him by those elites, beloved among real Americans. After serving as commander in chief for 100 days, his achievements, as well as shortfalls, were being closely scrutinized.

Ferrell, as the 43rd president, also criticized Trump for his frequent visits to his Florida golf resort, quipping, "He can't even sit in the White House, he runs down to the Mar-a-Lago".

This is for the first time in decades that a serving United States president decided against attending the annual event of journalists who cover him round-the-clock. Subscriptions start as low as 25¢ per day.

-Merriman Smith Award victor for outstanding White House coverage under deadline: Edward-Isaac Dovere of Politico for his coverage of the historic meeting between Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro. At one point, the crowd revived the campaign-era "Lock her up", chant, though the election was nearly six months ago, and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has largely bowed out of the public eye.
