    • No ‘Nerd Prom’ for Him: Trump Says He Will Not Attend the White House Correspondents Dinner

      Donald Trump is skipping the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. “I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year,” Trump tweeted to his followers on Saturday.

    • Hmm, maybe this is why Trump doesn't want to attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner

      On Saturday, Donald Trump made history as only the third president to bow out of the White House Correspondents' Dinner. And while this has much to do with Trump's ever-worsening battle with the press and his constant struggle to book talent, it's also worth remembering that, to be frank, Trump probably has another reason for ditching: He usually gets clobbered at these things. So, in the interest of, uh, elucidation, please enjoy these videos of Trump getting roasted at the 2011 and 2016 White House Correspondents' Dinner. Better yet, enjoy Trump's mirthless reactions. They're uncomfortable to watch, but extremely worth it. SEE ALSO: An exclusive look at Donald Trump's Twitter drafts for Oscar night First, here's President Obama clapping back at Trump's relentless "birther" conspiracy-mongering. The Lion King is involved. Next, observe Seth Meyers insisting that Trump must be running for president as a "joke." Trump does not smile. And here's Obama ripping on The Apprentice.  Finally, here's a delightful compilation of all the best Trump burns from the 2016 dinner.  A Larry Wilmore highlight: "Yeah, Trump's campaign is inspiring ... mass violence." (Trump did not attend that one, BTW.) So, there you have it. While we're not sure about the future of this year's event, we'll always have those stunners to fall back on.  And you can always zoom in on this cursed image while listening to "Sound of Silence."

    • Transgender wrestler wins Texas championship for girls

      (Reuters) - Mack Beggs, a 17-year-old high school wrestler who is transitioning from female to male, took home gold in the 110-weight class of the Texas girls state championship after the state refused to allow the student to compete against boys. The University Interscholastic League, which governs school sports in Texas, said the state's education code allows the use of a banned drug such as steroids if it "is prescribed by a medical practitioner for a valid medical purpose." Beggs' win came days after the Trump administration revoked landmark guidance to public schools letting transgender students use the bathrooms of their choice, reversing a signature initiative of former Democratic President Barack Obama. Beggs, a junior at Trinity High School in the Dallas suburb of Euless, had a 52-0 record ahead of the weekend tournament and was favored to win the high school championship in his weight class.

    • Want to Be Like Jackie Kennedy? Here Are 8 Rules She Lived by (8 photos)

      There is, perhaps, no greater American figure more beloved for her style and grace as the late Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis . Her legacy as the wife of President John F. Kennedy and the keeper of the Camelot legend alone has been a subject of fascination for decades, inspiring countless movies and biographies along the way. It comes as no surprise, then, that Natalie Portman 's gripping portrayal of the former First Lady in Jackie drummed up buzz all awards season long. The Academy Award-winning actress's latest tour de force (for which she received an Oscar nod ), transcends an ability to retell history after JFK's assassination; it's her keen sense of zeroing in on all of the little details that lend credence to this biopic. "She's so well-known in terms of what she looks like and what she sounds like and how she moves, so to get that is definitely daunting," Portman told Entertainment Weekly about preparing for the role of a lifetime. VIDEO: Natalie Portman Talks About Becoming Jackie From capturing her signature breathy, mid-Atlantic accent to donning her famous pillboxes just so, it's clear Portman spent time studying Jackie's every move and every thoughtful action. We recently sat down with Beaumont Etiquette founder Myka Meier to find out what, exactly, made the former First Lady so magnetic and charming--and how we could apply some of this elegance to our own lives.
