5. White House Correspondents' Dinner
Lots of ink (or in our case gigabytes) have been spilled over Saturday night's White House Correspondents' Dinner. Liberals say comedian Michelle Wolf spoke truth to power with her routine that savaged not only President Trump, but also key members of his administration who were there, like Sarah Sanders. Trump -- who once again skipped the event in favor of a rally -- and conservatives say it was a mean-spirited, filthy "embarrassment" that once again proves the coastal elites just don't get flyover country. The association expressed "regret" about Wolf's performance.
But the bottom line is this: Most Americans didn't catch Wolf's act at the dinner, nor do they care to pick sides in the controversy. They were too busy doing much more important stuff, like enjoying the nice spring weekend and packing theaters to see the latest "Avengers" movie.
