Samantha Bee to Host Alternative White House Correspondents' Dinner Event

Samantha Bee to Host Alternative White House Correspondents' Dinner Event

Samantha Bee just announced her plans to host an anti-Donald Trump event the same night as the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Aptly titled “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner,” the Full Frontal host’s event will take place on April 29 and invite “non-irritating celebrities” and journalists.

While many celebrities usually attend the annual White House event and presidential roast, many are thinking twice due to their opposition to the president.

“We’re really doing this. This is not a joke,” Samantha said in the announcement.

She added, “We’re not trying to supersede it. We just want to be there in case something happens — or doesn’t happen — and ensure that we get to properly roast the president.”

All proceeds from Samantha‘s event will go to the Committee to Protect Journalists.

    hehehe I forgot about the Correspondent’s Dinner! It’s usually such a fun event, but this time they’ll probably have to cancel it or get some middle school dance squads to perform.
