Donald Trump will be the first president in 36 years to be absent at the White House Correspondents Association dinner ― an annual tradition where media figures, politicians and celebrities schmooze for a night.
And while he and his staff likely turned down their invitations because of the president’s deep hatred for the media and so-called “fake news,” the folks over at “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” have figured out how to get Trump to attend: Invite the Russians.
What would that dinner look like? In Trump’s mind (or “The Late Show’s” version of Trump’s mind), it would probably include a Russian man like “Boris Yacanovich” riffing on journalists.
It would feature jokes like:
A journalist criticized the administration. And he was shot dead in the street. In broad daylight.
And other knee-slappers, including:
Another journalist expressed dissent. And he was dropped out of window. Kaboom.
Fingers crossed that the actual WHCA dinner never ends up looking like this.
