STIFLE IT, DONALD: TV character Archie Bunker, a creation of Norman Lear, comes to mind on news that Donald Trump won't attend the Kennedy Center event honoring Lear and others because he doesn't want to be a political distraction.  Lear and at least two of the other honorees didn't want to attend the White House reception with Trump.
  • STIFLE IT, DONALD: TV character Archie Bunker, a creation of Norman Lear, comes to mind on news that Donald Trump won't attend the Kennedy Center event honoring Lear and others because he doesn't want to be a political distraction. Lear and at least two of the other honorees didn't want to attend the White House reception with Trump.
The White House announced early this morning that Donald Trump would not participate in the annual Kennedy Center event paying tribute to influential artists. He didn't want to be a political distraction, a release said.

Honorees Norman Lear, Lionel Richie and ballerina Carmen de Lavallade had earlier said they planned to skip the traditional White House reception associated with the Kennedy Center event. LL Cool J had not commmented. Gloria Estefan had said she'd go to try to influence Trump on immigration policy.
