Will he go? Trump dangles he might attend 2019 press dinner

Trump says he might attend White House Correspondents Dinner
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is suggesting he might attend next year's White House Correspondents Dinner now that the event is no longer featuring a comedian.
Trump tweeted Tuesday night: "So-called comedian Michelle Wolf bombed so badly last year at the White House Correspondents' Dinner that this year, for the first time in decades, they will have an author instead of a comedian. Good first step in comeback of a dying evening and tradition! Maybe I will go?"

NEW YORK (AP) — Comedian Michelle Wolf doesn't have a show on Comedy Central, wasn't fired from it and the network hasn't apologized for her remarks about Sarah Huckabee Sanders at the White House Correspondents Dinner, despite several online stories about Wolf's speech.
The reports emerged from an uproar over her jokes about the White House press secretary at the dinner April 28 in Washington.
Apparently, people angry with Michelle Wolf’s performance at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner just don’t “get it.”
Saying people who don’t “like abortion” should try it isn’t some horribly insensitive scream at women who have anguished with that choice for years.
It isn’t a stab into the hearts of families that have wept and hugged and fought and reconciled over their teenager’s situation.
