Trump Cancels White House Christmas Party for Media


Many in the press were left speculating whether the Christmas party would occur.

Last month, White House Communications Director Bill Shine told the New York Times he couldn't comment on the party, but quipped, "This year we're inviting Mueller."

The news of the cancellation isn't that surprising considering the media's hostility towards Trump. A study by the Media Research Center found that 92 percent of press coverage over the summer of Trump was negative, compared to just eight percent positive.

And who could forget CNN "reporter" Jim Acosta's disrespectful behavior at a press conference last month where he engaged in a contentious discussion with President Trump and refused to hand over the microphone to a female White House intern.
