President Trump Skipping White House Correspondents' Dinner

25 February 2017 4:24 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which airs annually on C-span, will be down at least one major guest this year.

The announcement comes just one day after Trump banned several reputable news outlets — including The New York Times, The Washington Post and CNN — from access to a White House press briefing, and after months of referring to various news media as “fake news.”

Ryan Murphy made headlines on Feb. 16, when during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, he revealed that the next season of American Horror Story would center around the defeat of Hillary Clinton by Donald Trump in the election.

The news launched a thousand dreamcasts. But while accepting the award for Television Showman of the Year at the 4th annual Icg Publicists Awards Luncheon in Los Angeles on Friday, Murphy clarified that while the 2016 presidential election might be the theme, viewers won’t necessarily see its main players as characters.

Ryan Murphy: American Horror Story Season 7 Won't Feature Trump

25 February 2017 12:01 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Remember when Ryan Murphy revealed to the world that American Horror Story‘s forthcoming season would focus on the 2016 election? Yeah, he was just kidding about that — sort of. (It was more of an “alternative fact,” if you will.)

During the Publicists Guild Awards Luncheon in Beverly Hills on Friday, Murphy clarified that the “reveal” made on the Feb. 15 episode of Watch What Happens Live should not have been taken literally. In other words, while Season 7 might be inspired by the 2016 election, it will not include actors portraying then-candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. »
