It is annual, albeit at times odd, event in Washington. But this year the leader of the free world is refusing to attend.

Politico has the details.

“I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening,” Trump tweeted.

Trump’s move comes in the heat of his ongoing battle with the media, which he has labeled the opposition party and “fake news.”

Of course, he couldn’t be man enough to tell journalists to their faces that he wouldn’t be there. He used Twitter.
