One of the things that I most enjoy about President Trump is his canny trolling of the media; he holds up hoops, they jump.  He whispers, “look! Squirrel!,” they scurry off chasing squirrels.  It’s highly entertaining.

In perhaps the best example of his expert trolling yet, the president has announced that he will be holding an event in Pennsylvania at the exact same time as the White House Correspondents Dinner.

You may recall that in February Trump decided against attending this year’s “nerd prom.”

Many who would otherwise attend are going to be forced to instead cover the president’s competing event, a fact not lost on Politico‘s Kenneth Vogel.

Twitter, of course, lit up over this move.

At least Vogel hasn’t lost his sense of humor.
