Last night’s White House Correspondents Dinner was again not attended by President Trump, and since January 20th, 2017 the event has been re-branded to be a brave stand for the First Amendment:

Try having a “celebrating the Second Amendment” dinner and those same people will accuse you of being complicit in mass murder, but I digress.
The headlining “comedian” at the WHCD, who frankly I’d never heard of, was fairly awful (the whole monologue is here if you can take it). For me one of the funniest jokes told wasn’t even during the dinner, but rather it came from CNN’s Jim Acosta, who from the drama queen nature of his rhetoric seems to fancy himself America’s version of Tiananmen Square’s “tank man,” except he believes he’s standing between the First Amendment and Trump wielding a paper shredder. Get a load of this selective concern and self-victimization:
My problem with last night’s dinner is not that we had a comedian who told some nasty jokes. It’s that we did not really address the nearly constant attacks on the press from the president. The dinner should change with the times so we send a strong message to the world. #WHCD

The president of the White House Correspondents Association is equally concerned:

Those two people alone help explain why so many people have turned on the mainstream media, and he just doesn’t get it. Call it SOFATT — Sudden Onset First Amendment Trump Triggering. Where were so many of these media tools when this was happening under Obama?
The last people to be taken seriously are the lefty media types who are panicking about things Trump hasn’t even done other than mock them (for obvious reasons) after they spent eight years giggling like schoolgirls at Barack Obama while he did all of the above and then some. The MSM has created its reputation — not Trump.
