Washington: Lindsay Lohan missed her scheduled 1 pm flight from LAX to Washington, D.C., for the White House Correspondents’ dinner. The troubled actress plans to make a later flight on Friday, a website has reported. The 25-year-old is booked to be Greta van Susteren’s guest at the annual dinner organized by the White House Correspondents’ Association.
The invitation had generated controversy when Meghan McCain, the daughter of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), tweeted on Thursday, “Let me get this straight Greta Van Susteren is bringing Lindsay Lohan to the WHC Dinner but has a moral offense to Louie C.K?”
Van Susteren had recently criticized the Radio and Television Correspondents Association for asking comedian Louie C.K. to perform at their 2012 dinner as she objected to his jokes about former Governor Sarah Palin.
Asked about Lohan missing her flight at the People/Time cocktail party on Friday, van Susteren answered by simply saying that the dinner was on Saturday.
“The dinner isn’t until tomorrow,” she was quoted as saying.
Van Susteren said that this wasn’t even the most controversial guest she had brought in 20 years of attending the WHCD.
“I brought Ozzie Osbourne ten years ago,” she reminded.
