The White House Correspondents Association’s annual dinner won’t have a comedian in 2019, they’ve invited a historian to speak instead. Hm. They should have just gotten Michelle Wolf to do it again. [Dlisted]
I actually think some of this food-serving is cool? [OMG Blog]
Sarah Sanders is the most incompetent propagandist. [Jezebel]
Here’s Penelope Cruz’s boring, cheap-looking black dress. [GFY]

    Cowards in the White House, even scared of comedians! I will love Ron Chernow forever if he takes a shot. I’ve seen him interviewed, he’s no fan of Trump.

    A real time account of me scrolling down to see Jenna Coleman’s dress: “She’s so pretty, oh that’s not so ba…Oh my god!! MY EYES! MY EYES! IT BURNS!!!” The end.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Cowards, indeed, although I’d love it if the historian’s monologue were written by a comedian. We could be pleasantly surprised & the WH unpleasantly so. And it’s not a free press if they cannot ask pertinent questions & follow up questions. We need a revolution!

    • Veronica S. says:

      Chernow? Interesting choice, though I suppose sensible since the success of Miranda’s “Hamilton” gave his name (and book) far more mainstream presence than most historians have.

    • Alarmjaguar says:

      Hey man, historians can be biting and witty (full disclosure, historian here). Plus, many of us are liberal college professors, so I’m sure Trump will hate this choice, too. Plus, as already mentioned, Hamilton! And finally, Veronica S. is so right, we don’t really have much of a mainstream presence, though the Washington Post has a great blog series, Made By History, were a bunch of academic historians are weighing in on contemporary issues. Anyway, just popping in to say, yay for history! Carry on.

      • BeanieBean says:

        So true! I think back to my history profs at a liberal arts college–each one would be able to eviscerate trump. And would jump at the chance!

    The whole look would have been so much more chic on Meghan with trousers and without the strap. The strap makes the top look like a tankini.

  3. tealily says:

    I mean, this is a time during which we need to value historians, sure. But no one’s gonna watch that.

  4. LightPurple says:

    If the historians I follow on Twitter are any indication, Trump and crew will be begging for a return of comedians next year.

      Kevin Kruse?

      I agree! They’ve been some of the most passionate dissenters that I have heard, because they truly understand the importance of these deviations from the norm.

    • Darla says:

      LOL! So true. I don’t think this is going to be the win the right thinks it is.

      The only danger is, trump is now saying he might go since there is no comedian. And if he goes, he will get up there and bash the press. I mean, we know he’s not going to do anything self-depreciating like past presidents have. So it will be him bashing the press, and that will be quite ugly.

    Ha! Boy Erased is like watching a movie through a muddy puddle? I hate “dark” movies where I feel like I have to turn on a light. It’s super distracting and hard to focus – I have no idea why movies are shot that way. Hearing that Boy Erased is hard to watch will make it… hard to watch.

  6. Pandy says:

    Wah! Suckabee doesn’t want her make up criticized again. A historian will eviscerate this WH.

    But it’s us who are the snowflakes. God these people are such babies.

    I love the princess meat cake, I now know what I will be doing for my next bday!

  9. adastraperaspera says:

    Is Sarah Sanders still going to be in the administration by the time of the WHCA dinner? I heard a rumor she’s getting out. Plenty of criminal fools left to lampoon, of course. Chernow should just bring the cast of Hamilton with him and stand back.

    Sorry but I think the comedian at WHCD is supposed to be funny. It seems they have been trying to be scandalous the last couple of terms. They have a couple of good jokes but most seem unfunny and hateful.

  12. agnes says:

    Did you notice, that Suckabee was never again seen with smoky eyes after the WHCD 2017?
    Michelle Wolf sure did hit the bullseye there. *LOL*

    And for the memories, Wolf’s perpetual truth:
    “I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful. She burns facts, and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye. Like maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies. It’s probably lies.”

  13. Ramona Q. says:

    God bless Peas and Carrots, the pardoned turkeys. The turkey recall makes me sick. Animals suffered and were slaughtered just to get thrown out in the trash. It’s tragic.

  14. milky way says:

    Trump wants to kill any kind of serious media who might report what he is actually doing.

    So by refusing to invite comedians he sends out the signal that it will be dead boring. As a result less and less media people will attend this dinner. It will become less and less important. Go figure.
