The Mainstream Media Doesn't Get It.

They're highly offended because Stephen Colbert made fun of them along with the Prez at the dinner last week.

Too bad. They show up at the annual dinner all dressed up and expect the usual gentle poking fun at someone who has done more to lead this country to destruction than any President in history.
