Thoughts on the 2019 White House Correspondents' Dinner
Apr 30, 2019 at 02:45 PM

The Quick Facts

  • This Saturday was the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner, an event put on and attended by the journalists who cover the president.
  • The president typically attends the event, but Trump has skipped the last three. This year, Trump barred members of his administration from attending as well.
  • After comedian Michelle Wolf sparked controversy with her monologue at the dinner last year, the association opted this year to have a non-comedian deliver the main speech.  Pulitzer Prize winner and historian Ron Chernow, who wrote the biography of Alexander Hamilton which inspired the Broadway musical, delivered the keynote address.
  • While the event was taking place in Washington, President Trump was at a rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
