Donald Trump’s midday tweet Saturday announcing that he will not be attending this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association annual dinner sent social media into a feeding frenzy, calling the media-bashing POTUS everything from an orange chicken to a “scared little b-tch.”

In recent years, the so-called “nerd prom” — a star-filled charity benefit for journalism scholarships — has become a showcase and lightning rod for pointed political satire with a rotating line-up of comedian hosts.

The event is known for celebs playfully poking fun at the sitting POTUS, who has always taken the jokes in stride and then ribbed right back.

Trump, who famously took the brunt of President Obama’s jokes at the event in 2011 but never cracked a smile, has had a decidedly more hostile relationship with the White House press corps since taking office last month.

So the president’s decision not to break a three-decade-plus tradition and not attend — announced on Saturday via Twitter, naturally — was taken by many on social media as a sign the president might be more thin-skinned than his predecessors.
