Normally it’s an evening of polite smiles and handshakes and great food and photo opts with the first family. But not this year “The Grinch” I mean the President has canceled the annual White House Christmas party for the press. The invitation-only event grew so big that at one time there were two back to back events, one for print and one for broadcast. Washington reporters, anchors and commentators as well as New York executives would often fly in for the party. I guess he the president dosen’t want the place full of fake reporters cooking up fake news stories. Of course he’s busy tryng to find a new Chief of Staff as well.
