Political Theater

Tweeting from tonight’s White House Correspondent’s Assn. dinner is Newsweek’s Karen Tumulty:

And this is what’s wrong with America. The Villagers are so infatuated with the political creature they created, so insulated by their own self-importance, that they don’t even recognize the revulsion America feels toward Donald Trump.

The White House Correspondents Assn. dinner has made more than one political observer uncomfortable, but it doesn’t matter. Politics today feels like nothing more than a made for TV movie: scripted, cast and paid for by our corporate sponsor.
