White House Correspondents Dinner: Fairchild v. Trainor
With Elaine Donnelly, Christopher Buckley and Jack
Jack has a hilarious post up entitled “Walking the Red Carpet in 7 Easy Steps.” I love the part where he points out the two tennis poles growing out of his and Chris Buckley’s heads in the pic above. . .
My favorite story from the event comes from one of the pre-dinner parties. At one point I was standing next to a beautiful woman who turned, put out her hand and said, “Hi, I’m Morgan Fairchild.” Very friendly. I think I’m going to have to forgive her for being a Democrat.
We started to chat when I felt Jack pulling my elbow. “Come on. Quick,” he whispered.
I wondered what could possibly be pulling us away from chatting with. . .Morgan Fairchild. But ever the dutiful wife, I hurried away with him. . .
Lt. Gen. Bernard Trainor
“Hurry,” Jack says, a star-struck sound in his voice: “We’ve got to meet Bernie Trainor.”
Kid. You. Not.
