7 Hilarious Jokes From Samantha Bee’s ‘Not The White House Correspondents’ Dinner’
If youre a normal human with friends who made plans and actually followed through with them (unlike me), you might have missed the best thing on TV Saturday night. No, it wasnt the White House Correspondents Dinner. It was Samantha Bees special, Not The White House Correspondents Dinner.
Ugh. Even the specials name Its SO savage and I love it.
Bee announced back in January she wouldnt be attending the annual White House dinner, just days after President Donald Trump wassworn in to office. Her counter-event, which was held at DAR Constitution Hall, promised to celebrate journalists and non-irritating celebrities.
Not The White House Correspondents Dinner was just as hot of an event as the real WHCD, if not hotter. Celebrities who attended included Keegan Michael-Key, Jessica Williams and Gloria Steinem. We even got a surprise appearance from George W. Bush (AKA Will Ferrell).
Unfortunately, Vladimir Putin was a no-show.
As we could have guessed, the Trump roasts were plentiful. For those of you who missed it, here are seven of our favorite jokes from the special.

The one where Samantha Bee convinced us shes roasted every president.
The one where we found out whos been holding onto ouralternate reality.

The one where Billy Eichner compared Betsy DeVos to an ol bag of bones.
I mean I cant really argue with him on that one.
The one where we found out what the real deal was with Bill OReilly.
Samantha Bee joked,
Although, according to Infowars, Bill OReilly wasnt fired from Fox, he was murdered by Hillary Clinton for telling the truth about her presidency. You guys, I can verify that Bill OReilly is alive. He left me a long voicemail last night. It sounded like he was mixing custard while walking the stairs or something. Anyway, he sounded very relaxed by the end of the call.
The one where welearned about alternative facts from Steve Buscemi and a cat.
