Tom Brokaw Blasts Lindsay

YOU RUINED

White House Correspondents' Dinner

4/26/2013 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Lindsay Lohan
DESTROYED any shred of dignity the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner had left ... and now it's nothing more than a joke ... this according to Tom Brokaw.

The legendary newsman blasted the dinner during an interview with Politico -- saying the standards for the once-respected event have fallen so low, his daughter's junior prom has more dignity.

FYI -- Lohan was a guest of Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren at last year's event ... where booze flows freely and Beltway nerds routinely bring show-offy stars as plus-ones.

Brokaw says he's so pissed at the downfall of the event, he won't ever attend again.

However, there was one wild and crazy celebrity appearance that he actually enjoyed -- wait'll ya hear who it is.

Thats because there is more dignity at a teenage rave then there is at the Whitehouse these days.

After that being said I guess Lindsay will put Mr. Brokaw on her list of reporters NOT to be interviewed by.
Hope he can get over that.

I was trying to figure out why Lindsay would even WANT to attend an event like that … until I found this:


“This weekend, “distinguished celebrity delegates” attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner and related events in Washington are invited to raid a “Thank You Lounge” offering free loot from luxury jewelry, watch and perfume brands, as well as the St. Regis Bora Bora.”...........The Washington Post – April 25/13


The bigger question is why Greta thought Lindsay was considered a ‘distinguished celebrity delegate.’ I wonder who Linds will stalk, fake cry/beg, threaten, etc. to take her this year?

The Correspondents Dinner must be like Dinner for Schmucks. Who can outdo all the others by bringing the most outrageous guest.

I think Tom is your average talking head, but he has a really good point.

Proof positive that a pig in lipstick is still a pig. Gretta should not be invited back. A controversial guest is one thing, but dragging gutter trash in an evening gown into a function given for your peers where the Prez will speak is a new low in disrespect.
