Have Alec Baldwin at the White House Correspondents' Dinner

This petition had 32 supporters

President Donald Trump, who has called the media the "enemy of the American people," has announced he is refusing to attend the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner. This is in keeping with his disdain for the press and attempts to bar respected journalists who are at the top of their profession.

Alec Baldwin has made Americans keel over with laughter with his spot-on imitations of Donald Trump. His attendance at the dinner would add a note of levity to a traditional event that Trump is trying to quash. Alec Baldwin's imitations of Donald Trump would not only restore a Trump-esque note to this event, but would be an appropriate response to Trump's war against the press.

We count on the press to tell us what's happening in out government. Freedom of the press is a constitutional right.  A president who does not take this cherished values seriously does not deserve to be taken seriously.
