After Michelle Wolf brought down the house in 2018, angering two Trump aides in the process, this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner on April 27 won’t feature a comic roast, but rather historian Ron Chernow as keynote at the Washington Hilton event. (The president, skipping the WHCD for the third year, scheduled a Wisconsin rally instead.) So the job of making journos laugh will fall to Samantha Bee, who’s hosting her second Not The White House Correspondents’ Dinner. “We have so many fun, dumb things planned and so many good guest appearances and we also want to honor journalists,” Bee says. “They can have one night of respite, maybe? Just one hour and a half where they don’t check their phones constantly?” While two events that typically lure Hollywood are off — the Creative Coalition gala and the White House Correspondents’ Jam, hosted by the Rolling Stones’ Chuck Leavell — a few key fetes will still bring sparkle to the swamp.
