Trevor Noah To Host Return Of WH Press Dinner

Just in via press release:

The White House Correspondents’ Association is pleased to announce that Trevor Noah, the host of “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central, will entertain at the association’s annual dinner on Saturday, April 30, 2022.

“The White House Correspondents’ Dinner celebrates Americans’ freedoms and the working people who bring the news to the world,” said Steven Portnoy of CBS News Radio, president of the WHCA.

“Trevor is an incredible talent who keeps us laughing — and thinking — four nights a week,” Portnoy added. “We can’t wait for him to help bring our 100-year Washington tradition ‘Back to Abnormal.’”

This year’s dinner will be the WHCA’s first since 2019 and offer the first opportunity since 2016 for the press and the president to share a few laughs for a good cause.

Trump refused to attend the event every year because his tender feelings would have been hurt.
