How to Watch the White House Correspondents Dinner 2022 Online

·2-min read

Following a two-year hiatus, the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner is back on. Each year, the black-tie gala brings together politicians and the media to celebrate the First Amendment, the fourth estate and the relationship between government and press. That relationship stood on shaky ground throughout Trump’s presidency, when he boycotted the event all three years. This year, President Biden will become the first sitting president to attend the dinner since 2016.

In addition to the president, the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner is headlined by a featured entertainer, typically a comedian or political satirist. This year, “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah will be taking on the job. WHCA speeches are notorious for taking jabs at the current administration and many of the guests in attendance, so expect some heavy roasting.
