Trump cancels White House Christmas party for the press
Howard Kurtz
By Howard Kurtz | Fox News
Excerpt:

EXCLUSIVE – President Trump has canceled the White House holiday party for the media, making the decades-old tradition a victim of his increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations.

The annual Christmas-season gathering was a significant perk for those covering the White House, as well as other Washington reporters, anchors and commentators, and New York media executives would regularly fly in for the occasion. At its peak, the invitation-only soirees grew so large that there were two back-to-back events, one for broadcast outlets and one for print organizations.

Journalists who attended the events, which featured a catered buffet of lamb chops, crab claws and elaborate desserts, got to roam the decorated mansion with a spouse or other family member, a friend or a colleague, adding to the invitation's allure.

But the biggest fringe-benefit was the picture-taking sessions, in which the president and first lady would patiently pose with guests and briefly chat with them in front of a Christmas tree, with the White House sending out the photos — copies of which were invariably sent home to mom. This would take a couple of hours, with long lines snaking across the building's first floor. Bill Clinton even posed for pictures with journalists days after he was impeached.

The White House made no announcement that it was dropping the press party. The president and first lady threw such a gathering last December but did not pose for pictures. Trump made a brief appearance with his wife and offered a few welcoming remarks.

Good, the media is not a bunch of Dukes, they are not royalty and they do not deign over us. They are plebes like the rest of us.

Maybe someone will spoof a picture of Acosta running away with an NPR reporter in tow, from Trump’s tear gas clouds...

Meh, they should rent a barren, tacky convention room in the sleaziest Holiday Inn or Motel 6 they can find in the DC area for the party, and have it catered by Chick-Fil-A, just to rub salt in the wounds.

I like it, No way would I throw a party for people who don't like me. And it probably saves the taxpayers several thousand $ for the food and clean up.

LOL

Or even better yet: Make it a children's party - You know, a clown who makes balloon animals, maybe a cheap amateur magician act, spread some straw or sawdust and have pony rides, etc. Let those whiny crybabies know exactly what we think of them.

Good!

Big waste of money. I doubt there are more than 2-3 Christians in the entire lot. Most are secular humanists, acolytes in the church of Big Government. Their god, Obama (of course), with judges and lawyers as their clergy. Their Holy Book is the US Tax Code.

Trump has made it a policy to cut off funding and perks to those who hate America...

Why would the press be surprised to have their free lunch canceled?

Perhaps a page from old Vlad The Impaler's book should be used. When he took over the city was plagued with pick pockets, thieves, and homeless panhandlers. He invited all of them to a feast in a huge barn on the outskirts of town. They were chowing down, and he asked "Would you like to be taken care of like this for the rest of your lives?" to which they enthusiastically replied of course! So he locked the barn doors and burned the barn down on them.
