While the big names of top media organisations in the country attended the White House Correspondent's Dinner at the Washington Hilton on Saturday, the United States President Donald Trump chose to give the event a miss, breaking nearly a century-old tradition.
"A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation's capitol right now", he added.
Well, in an address on Friday, he said his first 100 days had been "just about the most successful" in United States history. He was incensed after the press reported President Barack Obama had bigger crowds at his inauguration, a comparison clearly backed up by photos.
Trump also said his rally broke attendance records at the expo center. Although Trump mainly focused on touting his administration's "historic progress" so far, he wasted no time in launching a scathing attack on his long time foe - news media.
President Donald Trump said that the crowd at his Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, rally Saturday broke the "all-time" record for the arena and that people were lined up outside hoping to get in.
" MR DONALD TRUMP, on how he has made a difference to the country with his policies since taking office in January".
Meanwhile, on Saturday night, comedian Hasan Minhaj did not hold back in his criticism of Trump or his administration during his performance at the White House Correspondents Dinner.
Among those on hand for the 100 day rally was Vice President Mike Pence, who told the cheering audience that President Trump was doing what he promised during the 2016 campaign.

About 200 residents and protesters rallied against THAAD in front of a local community center, some hurling plastic water bottles. Chinese President Xi Jinping urged "restraint" on North Korea in a telephone call with President Trump on Monday.
But Mr Trump's overall popularity rating is the lowest of any president in modern American history, though it runs over 90 per cent among his supporters.
In Washington, crowds gathered for the Peoples Climate March in support of environmental protection efforts, some of which have been rolled back during Trump's first 100 days.
That included his decision, just three days into his presidency, to withdraw the usa from the Trans-Pacific Partnership with Australia, New Zealand, Japan and eight other Pacific nations.
Bob Woodward of Watergate fame directed his message directly to the absent Trump and said, "Mr. President, the media is not fake news". Trump's ban on visitors from some Muslim nations was blocked in court.
He said under his administration, more than 600,000 new jobs have been created and illegal immigration across the US' southern border has been reduced by 73 per cent.
Supporter Heather Frampton said that the blame shouldn't be limited to Democrats.
Reveling in the cheers in Harrisburg, Trump made reference again to his upset victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton in the crucial swing state of Pennsylvania, which he said "carried us to a big, attractive win on November 8".
He also emphasized, "We are not the enemy of the American people".
