Donald Trump will be the first president in 36 years to be absent at the White House Correspondents Association dinner ? an annual tradition where media figures, politicians and celebrities schmooze for a night.

And while he and his staff likely turned down their invitations because of the president?s deep hatred for the media and so-called ?fake news,? the folks over at ?The Late Show with Stephen Colbert? have figured out how to get Trump to attend: Invite the Russians.

What would that dinner look like? In Trump?s mind (or ?The Late Show?s? version of Trump?s mind), it would probably include a Russian man like ?Boris Yacanovich? riffing on journalists.

It would feature jokes like:

A journalist criticized the administration. And he was shot dead in the street. In broad daylight.

And other knee-slappers, including:

Another journalist expressed dissent. And he was dropped out of window. Kaboom.

Fingers crossed that the actual WHCA dinner never ends up looking like this.
