President Donald Trump has announced on Twitter that he will not be attending the White House Correspondents Association dinner.
White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos to defend Trump’s absence from the dinner. Huckabee-Sanders explained, “I think it’s kind of naive of us to think that we all can walk into a room for a couple of hours and pretend that some of that tension isn’t there. You know one of the things we say in the south is ‘if a girl scout egged your house would you buy cookies from her?'”
