This past weekend the White House hosted its annual Correspondents Dinner - a celebration of the media elite, is complete with awards for excellent coverage, but what ends up taking all of the headlines is the president's humorous address and the subsequent comedic routine by the host. Sean kicked off Monday's show by explaining to his audience that he had no interest in ever attending a correspondents dinner.
"I did not hear or watch Jimmy Kimmel. I did not watch the stars or the media elite. I missed it. I was with my kids all weekend and couldn't have been happier. Hollywood, most of the media and the White House is full of liberals - why would I want to go there when I could be with my family?" Sean asked rhetorically. "It wasn't even a tough decision...not even a close call. I have no desire to meet Hollywood stars - zip. Hearing the president tell lame jokes about eating dogs doesn't do it for me. It's been my mission since I started in broadcasting to duck an d dodge this dinner. One year however I was told I had to go - there was no more getting out of it as I had used every excuse in the book. That year however, God blessed me and I got sick the day before and couldn't go. So I've been able to duck and dodge this dinner and I'm kinda proud of it," Sean said happily.
