In my view, it is well within The Donald's power, will and fancy to not attend this event in any year of three remaining years. And he could very well not do so in his second four years.
This sustained insult upon this collective of media people will totally reduce their egoistic exaltedness. They will have had 8 consecutive dinners without the main on their menu.
And if they scrap this dinner, do you think The Donald will have a heart attack?
He would probably immediately put on a white dinner party at the White House for the publishers and editors and wives and significant others of American Newspapers that have been fair in their reporting about him and his actions.
Don Lemon, for sure, will NOT be invited.
