It’s time conservatives took a page from the left’s playbook…
The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is the same thing every year. No matter which party is in power, the Republicans are the punchline of the harshest jokes. It’s time to create an alternative event that offers some balance.
Liberals have been copying conservative successes for years. The Huffington Post was created to be the left’s Drudge Report. The Occupy Wall Street movement was created to be the left’s Tea Party. Some Democrats are already saying they need their own Trump.
It’s time conservatives took a page from the left’s playbook and created an event just like the White House Correspondents’ Dinner that’s geared towards the right.
This was not my idea, credit goes to FOX News host Greg Gutfeld.

Greg Gutfeld Suggests Hosting ‘Counter-Dinner’ After Trump Proposes He Host WHCD Next Year
President Trump liked Pete Hegseth‘s idea for Greg Gutfeld to host next year’s White House Correspondents Dinner. And Gutfeld is on board. Well, sort of.
On The Five today, the hosts mostly panned the dinner and Wolf’s speech, with Jesse Watters saying the jokes were “very dirty.”
Kimberly Guilfoyle then brought up the President’s tweet about her co-host:
While Washington, Michigan, was a big success, Washington, D.C., just didn’t work. Everyone is talking about the fact that the White House Correspondents Dinner was a very big, boring bust…the so-called comedian really “bombed.” @greggutfeld should host next year! @PeteHegseth

Gutfeld is up for hosting an event the night of the dinner next year, but “not there.”
“We have to do a counter-dinner,” he proposed. “Maybe do it for police widows. The money goes there and then Trump has to go to that instead of that.”
The video below is cued to begin at the 11 minute mark, just press play:
Greg’s idea to make it a charity event is excellent and he would make an outstanding host for the first one. You could sell tickets at various levels for different seating areas. Open it up to conservative writers, journalists, bloggers, and video makers. I would go.
