The Latest Trump ‘Controversy’ May Be The Most Ridiculous Yet
The press has been throwing a tantrum ever since Trump was elected and on Tuesday night he did something so horrible they just couldn’t hold back anymore. This is “Dinnergate”.
The Hill reported:
Donald Trump left Trump Tower without his press pool on Tuesday to have dinner with his family, according to reporters.
The president-elect reportedly received a standing ovation and cheers upon arriving at 21 Club, a New York City restaurant, an hour after his spokeswoman had called a “lid,” signaling to the reporters following him that he was in for the night.
Spokeswoman Hope Hicks said she “wasn’t aware of this movement,” adding she wouldn’t do anything to “leave the press in the dark.”
Here are some of the breathless headlines this tragic and unprecedented incident generated:

The press was eventually alerted to the President-elect’s whereabouts when Bloomberg reporter Taylor Riggs tweeted a photo of Trump receiving a standing ovation as he entered the 21 Club:
The media’s heads are going to explode over the next four if Trump keeps this up and it’s going to be fun to watch. What do you think?
