The Trump Administration has pulled the plug on the annual press Christmas party at the White House.

It's about time.

Just imagine the outrage in the social circles of the elite media. They hate Trump's guts, but wouldn't miss the opportunity to stand in line for hours for a photo op with him in front of the White House Christmas tree. What a bunch of pretentious bores.

Members of the media elite from all over the land are crushed at the prospect of not being able to dine on crab legs and lamb at the taxpayers' expense, all the while leering and belittling the First Family and the millions of deplorables who actually support these rubes.

These vipers spend their days questioning the morals, sanity, and ethics of the president, and then expect to be welcomed to the White House for a party?

Good enough. I guess Mika and Joe and Don Lemon will have to find someone else to sponge off of this year.

Merry Christmas!
