TL;DR

For the first time in recent memory the White House Correspondents Dinner did not have a comedian emcee its annual dinner. Instead delivered a solemn address to open up the usually jubilant evening. Knox focused his remarks on the threat he said the White House is putting journalists under. I dont want to dwell on the president Knox said while discussing President Trump. Ive had to tell my family not to touch packages on our stoop he told the crowd. The historian headlining Saturday nights White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington took several shots at President Trump during his speech. Trump is not the first and wont be the last American president to create jitters about the First Amendment. White House Correspondents Association President Olivier Knox also lambasted the presidents treatment of the media. For the third year in a row Trump skipped out on the dinner and held a rally in Wisconsin. Like every future president Washington felt maligned and misunderstood by the press
