Busy Saturday – Dem’s choose a new leader – former Labor Secretary – Tom Perez –

Pres. Not Attending W.H. Correspondents’ Dinner –

Last story first… Pres. Trump is not quickly becoming a friend of the media – his people are not welcoming to the media  (after all, they are now the ‘opposition party’…) and we are nearly guaranteed to find out more Tuesday evening as Trump addresses a joint session of the Congress.  

Why not attend the Correspondents’ Dinner?  Too many options but most observors are suggesting that the way was paved earlier during the past week when certain news outlets (NY Times, CNN… etc) were not welcome to a press gaggle. On the other hand – why not attend?  It may turn out to be a roast and also an opportunity for some press who may not have wanted to attend to be there and celebrate the moment along with Alec Baldwin who is being chatted up as a possible attendee.

So what’s to be made of this and the “Thanks BUT – No Thanks” response to the Dinner… the suggestion is that the W.H. is gearing up for the long term and why show up when the dinner will be nothing more than a gang-on that he (the Pres.) has no interest in being part of at that moment.    

Watch the TWEETS the next morning —  see if you can predict what is going to be TWEETED –  

So the ‘opposition’ is holding a dinner that same evening and you can bet that is where Dem’s and others will be gathering to lay it all out.  A good one to watch. 

About the new Dem. leader Perez?   

Watch this morning’s talking head shows and stay tuned for MUCH, MUCH more.

POINT OF INTERESTWe hear this mistake over and over and it simply is one of those points of grammar usage that we all learned at one point or another way back when.   The issue is differentiating between ‘Further’ and ‘Farther’ –

Are you guilty of missing this one on occasion… then you may benefit from this clever note we ran across from “Grammar Girl” –
