Trump Is Ready to Meet the Press, in the Very Safe Space of the Gridiron
Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily BeastPresident Trump is preparing to face his chief tormentors, and the likelihood is he will emerge bored rather than bruised.

For the world at large and even some members of Washington's Gridiron Club—the 133-year-old private society that functions as the journalistic equivalent of Skull & Bones—it came as a surprise this week when the White House announced that Trump has accepted an invitation to attend and speak at the club's annual white-tie-and-tails, ball-gown conclave of media elites, politicians, lobbyists, deep-state denizens and other creatures of The Swamp.

It's the latest sign that the Republicans on the hyper-factionalized committee are willing to focus on anything but potential collusion between Donald Trump and the Kremlin in the 2016 election. Trump's associates tend to share their boss's love for Twitter and, like many users of the social network, have been known to use direct messaging for sensitive communications.
