And the April 27, 2019 event will break with the tradition of featuring a comedian, with the guest speech coming from historian and biographer Ron Chernow, who is best known for his biographies of Alexander Hamilton and two former United States presidents.
Wolf appears to be referring to Mr. Trump's vow to stand with Saudi Arabia, regardless of the CIA's conclusion about the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman's involvement in the slaying of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
And using Melania Trump's freaky anti-bullying campaign slogan as the signoff coup-de-grace? I think she's very resourceful.
Trump used the social media platform to call Wolf a "so-called comedian" following the news that the featured speaker at the 2019 White House Correspondents' Dinner would be an author instead of a comedian.
"I bet you'd be on my side if I killed a journalist", Ms. Wolfresponded on Twitter.
"Good first step in comeback of a dying evening and tradition", he added. He never acknowledged Khashoggi's status as a US resident, instead, writing that Saudi Arabia thought of the journalist an enemy.Читайте также: Amazon hit by data breach before Black Friday
"The media is complicit".
Wolf's performance a year ago, which included jokes on White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders' appearance, elicited mixed reactions.
"Freedom of the press is always a timely subject, and this seems like the ideal moment to go back to basics", he said, adding that, "While I have never been mistaken for a stand-up comedian, I promise that my history lesson won't be dry".
He also used the opportunity to blast Wolf.
Some critics, including Trump, took issue with the "smoky eye" comment because they felt it attacked Sanders' appearance. The group started its annual dinner in 1921, and presidents have traditionally attended.
Wolf did not back down from criticism, telling NPR's "Fresh Air" in May, "I wouldn't change a single word that I said".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
