‘This Man Has No Sense of Humor’: ‘The View’ Hosts Roast Trump for Ditching Correspondents’ Dinner

Whoopi Goldberg and the co-hosts of “The View” ripped President Donald Trump on Wednesday for his decision to skip the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner again.

Not only is Trump skipping the dinner, but he has reportedly instructed his staff to forgo the invitation as well. The event had previously been announced to forgo the tradition of featuring a comedian emcee.

Responding to this news, Goldberg suggested that everyone might as well stay home.

“How can you do the correspondents’ dinner if you don’t have a person in charge who has a sense of humor?” she asked the panel.

“Well, that’s the problem,” Sunny Hostin quickly interjected, as she explained the event is designed “to celebrate a free press.”

“But it’s unfortunate because not only do we have a president that doesn’t seem to have a sense of humor, he doesn’t seem to enjoy the fact that the Constitution provides for a free press,” she said. “And I think that’s why he’s telling the folks within the White House that they can’t go.”

Abby Huntsman then argued Trump could attend and make jokes about the Mueller report, but Goldberg quickly checked her, saying that’s “not going to work” because “that’s not funny.”

Goldberg continued pushing her opinion that “this man has no sense of humor”:

“If you’re in the public eye, somebody’s got something to say. Somebody will always crack on you. What you can’t do is you can’t go after them personally. You can’t go after their family. You can’t retaliate. That’s not how that works. If you can’t take it, you shouldn’t be in the job because everybody is kicking your ass as president. It doesn’t matter what side you’re on. Every president has taken it, and taken it like champs.”

This statement elicited Joy Behar to chime in, comparing Trump to “Typhoid Mary” because “everything he touches turns to dust.”

Goldberg then reiterated her view that a president should have a sense of humor and “cannot be a vindictive, angry man.”

It may be that the “lack of a sense of humor” you criticize him for is the reason he has accomllished so much for middle class and the previously. He sought office to help average Americans; not to dither.

More coverage of the Leftist harpies. How sad for IJR.

Here’s the thing about humor. Like pornography it is highly subjective. What they consider funny is on them and they CANNOT insist that others feel the same way.

Oh wait, their Leftists. What they say goes.
