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.

I’m not sure why you picked this thread to bash President Bush-—he certainly had nothing to do the the Correspondence Dinner.

Personally, I like President Bush—not everything he did, by any means, but I’d take him back any time, especially in light of what we have today.

I think you are on the wrong thread.

He even went after Matt Damon. Not that I like Damon but the way he did it was crass and rude.

More an artifact of lighting I think. Light is focused on the face. I’ve noticed this in my humble attempts at photography. Sometimes the difference makes for very odd pictures.

Oh, there were howls of laughter when Trump and the Pubs were being skewered.

The folks around Trump were nervous though. He looked like Mt. Vesuvius, ready to commence ash dispersion.

Fyi, the animal cartoon was from the Disney movie “Lion King.” Oddly, Simba...the Lion cub whose birth was honored’ was the rightful heir to the throne...he was displaced by his Uncle, Scar, who was a usurper to the throne. Scar ran the once magnificent Animal Kingdom into poverty and chaos. Scar surrounded himself with evil characters (jackals/hyenas). Sound like anywon we know?

Barry, complete with non explained head scars and his cast of evil doer IS the usurper King. Question is who is our Simba (the one who rescues the Kingdom?). My hope, its a Lion Queen, Palin 2012.

[Mrs] T and I did not personally make it but we contributed by making so posters. RongKirby, Fraxinus, Tammy Cat, and mojo114 and husband were supposed to be there. There should be an AAR which is being coordinated now. Not sure if there will be pictures.

How much of his much-proclaimed wealth has he given to the tornado victims? A nickel?

Who are you to demand Donald Trump give his money to anyone?

So agree. The guy has no idea how to be funny. He can only be snide and sarcastic. What does he think he has to gain by personally calling out Hollywood types, who, are, in essence, still just citizens like the rest of us.

Damon DARED to criticize ...

Geez she looks like she’s going out to the local dance club ... I mean, she looks “good,” but this is hardly an appropriate look for a First Lady.

Damon apparently complained about Obama’s being too conservative on some pet issue. Serfs do not complain about the King... not and live.

It really is a wig. Honest.

My two cents on her “look” wonderful if auditioning for a member of ‘Dawn’ at Tony Orlando’s Branson place. But for an almost 50 year FLOTUS...trying too hard to ‘keep it real.’. MAO must be very opinionated, because her latest stylist (Koop) flew the coop (probably because she suggest “Me!chelle, how about trying sleeves for once?’)

Oh, yeah, I know it’s a wig. I did think it softened her look a little, but maybe it was a little far out for a first lady. But, then, we don’t really have a first lady right now, do we?

Wasn’t that the worst display of viciousness by a US prez that you have ever seen?

This dinner traditionally is a roast of the sitting president! Not a roast of the paying guests.

How gauche, ridiculous, evil, venal, vindictive and juvenile was this? This president is an insane narcissist.

“If it hasn’t crossed your TV yet, you should know that dims are 100 percent in support of Trump running.”

That’s right. The commie would beat him in a landslide.

Draw your own conclusions.
