Any event with a stand-up comedian hosting can be unpredictable, but there’s one thing you can count on during the White House Correspondents Dinner this year: Trump won’t be there. Even if there won’t be any viral moments involving the president during this year’s event, it’s still worth tuning in — but how can you watch White House Correspondents Dinner happenings if you don’t have cable? We have you covered.
Michelle Wolf made it clear in a recent interview with GQ that’s she’s ready to roast Trump as this year’s host. In fact, though she’s worried about her routine playing well with people watching on TV (or online, we’ll get to that), she’s “expecting it to not play well in the room.” That’s because the subjects of her jokes, other than Trump, will be sitting right there in the room.
