Vladimir Putin has accepted an invitation to replace Donald Trump at this year’s White House correspondents dinner after Trump tweeted he wouldn’t be attending this year. “Why have the puppet when you can have the puppeteer?”, said key organizers of the dinner. “Trump is rather thin skinned and he’s afraid that other people will do to him what he’s done to other presidents. Trump is going to stay home and tweet about it.”
Putin will be seated next to Trump’s current wife Melinia who was also born in the former Soviet Union. Putin is expected to joke about that there is no truth to the rumors that she is a KGB agent, or that he is having an affair with Trump’s wife. Vodka will be served with the meal.
