Correspondents' dinner lacks glitter without Trump

That seemed to spur him on: "They are gathered together for the White House correspondents' dinner - without the president".

President Donald Trump says North Korea "disrespected" China with its most recent ballistic missile test. But the effort today to get this best obtainable version of the truth is largely made in good faith. "As for the other guy, I think he's in Pennsylvania because he can't take a joke", Minhaj said amidst laughter from the audience.

In this footage, Bee watched herself perform at the White House Correspondents' Dinner and roast Clinton, whose cabinet was "51% women".

President Donald Trump is marking his 100th day in office by saying he's brought - in his words - "profound change" to Washington, and he's reaffirming that "my only allegiance" is to those he governs. Trump ended up being the butt of the jokes that night from comedian Seth Meyers and then-President Barack Obama.

Members of the White House Press Corps agreed the doing away with the glitz & glam returned the dinner to its origins. Attending are Alysia Reiner of "Orange Is the New Black", Retta of "Parks and Recreation" and Matt Walsh of "Veep". Bee's show, a comedic tribute to American news organizations, featured actor Will Ferrell and other guests roasting Trump and his allies. Eric Podwall, a talent manager who's attended the last eight WHCDs and hosted private dinners for his visiting clients (including Matthew Morrison, Miles Teller, Tony Romo, Sophie Turner and JC Chasez) for the past three, says that he didn't even consider attending this year.

During Donald Trump's first 100 days in office, her most notable public appearance occurred in late March at the Department of State, where she pledged the USA would closely monitor nations that fail to protect women's rights and work to combat gender-related violence. Although he was asked to avoid ribbing the new administration - since Trump broke with tradition in not attending and the rest of his royal court followed suit - the Daily Show correspondent couldn't help himself.

Mason said the media can not ignore the rhetoric from the president about who they are and what they do.

"There was a lot of comedy", she said, "but we really did do it for the free press". "We're going to give Americans the freedom to purchase the health care plans they want - not the ones forced upon them by the government".

After lots of trades and picks, Jets fill big needs in draft
It was the Jets' only compensatory pick this year, and they were on the clock preparing to spend it at tonight's NFL Draft. Stewart compiled a career 1,713 yards on 129 catches (13.3 yards per reception) with 12 touchdowns.

Trump's decision came after The New York Times, CNN and Politico were denied access to a White House news briefing in the first weeks of his presidency. From mocking press secretary Sean Spicer to calling out Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and pointing out the elephant that WASN'T in the room (ahem, Donald Trump) Minhaj didn't hold back. ET was on the scene to highlight a few things you didn't see from this alternative take on Washington, D.C.'s "Nerd Prom".

Late-night TV star Samantha Bee has organized the first "Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner".

The White House press corps gathered Saturday for its annual black-tie dinner, a toned-down affair this year after Donald Trump snubbed the event, becoming the first incumbent USA president to bow out in 36 years.

But this year President Donald Trump is skipping the dinner on what is his 100th day in office.

The "Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner" special airs Saturday on TBS at 10 p.m. ET.

On Saturday night, Hasan Minhaj became the first Indian American on Saturday to catch the headline section of the annual White House correspondents dinner.

Trump is the first president since Ronald Reagan in 1981 to skip the event, which officially began in 1921.

Trump is heading to Pennsylvania in the evening to visit a shovel factory and appear at a rally in Harrisburg, the state capital.
