The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is usually a self-congratulatory powwow for politicians to mingle with the reporters who cover them, with a few celebrities thrown in. But this year was a more subdued Nerd Prom, as the event has come to be known, because of the Donald Trump administration’s war on the press. Enter Samantha Bee, who staged an event she described simply as “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner” that added a note of levity to an otherwise bummer of a weekend in Washington D.C. Here, go inside all the insidery events from this weekend in our nation’s capital.
