Obama and Seth Meyers headline

Politics and Hollywood collide again at tonight's annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner. The event has evolved into a star-studded affair as celebrities descend upon Washington, joining journalists and President Obama.

This year's comedian headliner, Saturday Night Live's Seth Meyers, is charged with the task of poking fun at the President and Washington politics.

Each year, the President uses the occasion to show a more humorous side as well, making fun of himself and the people who cover him.

The purpose of the annual dinner is “to raise money for WHCA scholarships and honor the professional recipients of the WHCA's journalism awards," according to the White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) website.

C‑SPAN begins tonight’s live coverage with the red carpet arrivals at 6:45pm EST. See complete coverage at C‑SPAN's White House Correspondents' Dinner webpage.

“Tim Pawlenty makes Al Gore look like RuPaul.”

“Donald Trump syas he is running for President as a Republican. We thought that he was running as a joke.”

“It is ironic that Trump is on FOX. The fox is on his head.”

Now Seth making statements about the birth certificate, weaving in “jokes”.

Seth is definitely on Trump’s short list now.

Seth is roasting Donald. Trump is not laughing. I expected a joke or two about Trump, but he went on and on and the jokes weren’t funny they were mean-spirited.

None of his 2012 GOP hopeful jokes were funny. And didn’t get a lot of laughs.

I am recording it now.... this has gone beyond the pale. This is a campaign commercial by media for Obie. Roasting of Trump and all contenders against the ONE. If ANYONE believes the media is NOT a propaganda tool for Obama they are delusional..

Seth the Mess now talking about Obama.

“What can I say about Joe Biden that hasn;t already been mis-said by Joe Biden.”

“If Joe Biden attended the Royal Wedding: Wedding Crashers 2.”

“Joe Biden: I’d like 2 Amtrak tickets to London.”

Disclaimer: not actual transcript of comments. Abridged because I can’t type all of the words fast enough.

I agree getting into Obama’s face does not make you a conservative- but I would take ANYONE over Obamnbi now, and Trump is the ONLY one with the balls to confront him

That being said, I think it will be Palin/Bachman 2012 and they will kick O’s butt all over the place, and Trump will be gracious and an active supoort

I am not sure if he thinks he can win- but i think he is smart enough to help defeat obama if he does not

When you watch old Bob Hope monologues, and the Dean Martin roasts, you see real humor.

Not this crap.

Well if it would have been one or two jokes and not so mean-spirited maybe Trump would have laughed. But this was the White House Correspondents Dinner not a Donald Trump roast.

Not a single joke at Obama's expense. As the head writer of Saturday Night Live, I guess that shouldn't be surprising to anyone.

It's also telling that Obama can't make jokes about himself. This compounds the fact that he just isn't a very funny person. Bush, OTOH, was a riot and almost all of his jokes were either about himself, or his administration. Obama used the night as a platform to launch political weapons at his enemies. Again, probably not surprisingly.

I tuned in only to see this Meyers twerp. The jokes about the networks were okay, but the personal attacks...yes, personal...on Trump were absolutely vicious. I wonder if the flammable tie joke could open Seth Meyers up to a lawsuit? He actually slandered a product (and Macy’s).

“...Trump is steaming”

as well he should be. That was more an attack on Trump (and incidentally Republicans) and fawning over Obama (Michelle looked pretty? Who was he kidding? Her?)

I knew I didn’t want to click on this tread. Gave up watching the WH Correspondents Dinner when they had Steven Colbert, who spent his whole time attacking Bush. How redundant1 Isn’t that what the WH press corps was for in those days?
