Trump for the second straight year skipped the annual Washington dinner for reporters, politicians and other famous people — where he, like presidents before him, was the target of jokes by the host.
The White House Correspondents’ Dinner ended with a barrage of vulgar anti-Trump jokes by comedian Michelle Wolf, who attacked the appearance of White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, who was sitting with her at the head table.

What they’re saying: White House officials in the audience thought Wolf’s patter went too far and thought the attacks on Sanders and Kellyanne Conway were too personal.
Be smart: That creates a new hurdle for the White House Correspondents’ Association to lure President Trump, who has snubbed the dinner the last two years.
Why it matters: If the dinner can only attract liberal presidents and liberal comedians, the conclusion is inevitable.
