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.

Full program expected to start at approximately 9:45pm ET

Not smart to make Trump angry.

I see white people. They’re out there calling Trump and Republicans racist meanwhile they had a handful of “blacks” at their big event. The only joke tonight was the press themselves.

I’m happily watching Dr. Who on BBC America instead of the disgrace in Washington, but monitoring here and Hot Air . . . Am I correct in my understanding that the general hate-fest launched by Obama and the rest left the Palins essentially untouched?

Even the MSM on twitter seem a bit surprised at the Trump jokes. I’m no Trump fan but what Obama and NBC did to him tonight was down right cruel. And not the least bit funny.

I don’t know exactly how much Trump is worth, but I suspect it’s a good bet that you don’t make him a laughingstock to his face, and not invite some serious and well-thought-out counterstrokes.

Trump is a lot of things but I don’t think “stupid” and “passive” is among them. He will not simply sit there and take this.

Start popping the popcorn. This may be very, very entertaining.

Republican President, all jokes about the Republican President.

Democrat President, all jokes about Republicans.

Remember, that room full of Obama worshipers are the ones dispersing “information” to the masses.

Goebbels is smiling, he taught them well.

I just read that the White House states it had requested a copy of the short form...but got the COLB. It just goes on and on....and these miscreants at their party tonight don’t have the minerals to ask barry what to the hell is going on. Party on. I’ve never seen an entire profession choose to make themselves irrelevant like these pricks.

It was something to do with John Kyl and some agency (”He told me 90% of what they do is abortions”). Even the lady on the dais on Meyers’ left side didn’t laugh. Abortion is only joke material to monsters.

Sum up the non-roast of Obama: Roast potential GOP POTUS candidates

Roast various journalists

Roast Americans who don't believe OBie is a natural born citizen

Roast Tea Party

Roast Joe Biden - in place of roasting Obie...

Ah. That's OK, then (for certain values of "ok.") Wouldn't want her to feel left out.

Have I ever mentioned how much I find the current occupants of the White House and most of the media utterly loathsome?

looks like Sarah Palin attended the Bloomberg after party. If those are her bare legs, then I'd say she needs to lay off the self tanner for awhile as that does not look natural.

The Palins escaped unscathed. The Idiot-in-Chief went after Pawlenty (called him Tim Hosni Pawlenty), attacked Michelle Bachmann (said she is a Canadian citizen), and reamed Donald Trump.

Seth Whoever (never heard of him) attacked Biden, Trump, and Republicans in general.

It was a Hatefest.

After watching part of it back again as well as thinking back about past WHCDs (especially the one with Colbert), I have to ask - Why do the Republicans participate in this charade?

If the GOP was smart, it would hold a counter-event/dinner on the exact SAME night someplace else - maybe in a different city. You could create a charity their own journalism scholarships at reliably conservative universities like Liberty or Hillsdale. And/or, you could create a troop support charity of some kind. But, to participate in this annual in-kind contribution to the DNC, is RIDICULOUS. It gives to the media and their partners-in-crime, a kind of legitimacy by participating. A counter-event would have another long-overdue effect - it would finally draw a BIG line in the sand that conservatives and Republicans can finally say in no uncertain terms - Hey media, you're wildly biased and we're not going to pretend otherwise anymore.

For the second time this week, Trump looked Presidential. First on BC drop day (with the live, ad lib taking live questions press w/helicopter blades spinning in the background) and tonight. He is not a candidate (yet) but he ruled that room. More telling then Trumps steely resolve in NOT ‘playing along’ was the wide shot reaction of those around him...fear of his reaction and more the WHCD topic tomorrow is Trump. NOT Barry...who btw, sounded small, cannot make a joke at his own expense...and his delivery (or how they wrote the words on TOTUS sucked). He has no sense of comedic timing...

And when Trump left he took Melania. When Soetaro left...well he took Me!chelle (and her wighat) along.

And the dilemma: who will carry it? Who will buy the commercials ? The bulk of the American citizenry are so apathetic and/or stressed out and/or 60% thumb sucking entitlement wombats and slugs, thanks to increased govt handouts, liberal/radical academia, and all constant print and television press lies and spin.

Now, things may possibly start shifting as this buffoon
in our WH increasingly shows the evidence of his total incompetence and anti-Americanism, or .. God forbid the terror risk here increases dramatically .. and folks get totally steamed at their financial futures and what/who’s making it so untenable == more critical mass.

And that would be helped and boosted immensely, IF ONLY there were brave, wise and savvy patriot warriors fighting for us on our side.

Dear God .. let it be so.

These liberals are not tolerant and loving as they claim, but they are vicious beast.

Trump, Sarah Palin, and conservatives have a lot of guts to attend that liberal freak show in the first place. I would not want to be among a big group of liberals in one place. I’d be afraid that God would take the opportunity and crack open the ground and swallow up the whole bunch of wicked beast in one swoop.

And the fool that was telling jokes about abortion has a special place in hell waiting for them. Murdering babies is not a joke.
