‘Typical Comedian’ Trevor Noah Selected as Host of White House Correspondents Dinner

Late-night host Trevor Noah has been chosen to host the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and media experts predict that most of the hitting will be on Donald Trump, not the current White House occupant.

For years, the comedian has poked fun at both political leaders and journalists at the Correspondents’ Dinner with previous celebrity hosts including Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Meyers.

Trump skipped the event for three years in a row, dodging a flood of jokes made about him.

In 2019, Trump said he was skipping dinner to hold a rally instead because it was “so boring and so negative.”

The White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) said the proposed dinner offered “the first opportunity since 2016 for the press and the president to laugh at a good deed.”

Proceeds from the event will support the work of the White House press office, scholarships for emerging journalists, and awards for professionals.

Biden and First Lady Jill are sure to be pleased with their host choice: Noah’s autobiography, Born a Criminal: Stories of a South African Childhood, is one of two required reading introductory English courses the First Lady taught last year. year.

Noah, host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central, will host an April 30 dinner in Washington DC, becoming the first comedian to headline the event since Michelle Wolfe in 2018.

Noah is also set to host the Grammys on April 3rd.

Wolff ruthlessly poked fun at Trump administration officials in 2018, which proved too controversial for the White House Correspondents Association, which then selected historian Ron Chernow to host the event in 2019. Dinner was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus.

“Trevor Noah will be the featured artist at the WH Correspondents Dinner. The most predictable comedian on television will hardly joke about Biden, a lot about Trump. In a related story, the Daily Show can’t even get 500,000 viewers these days and Gutfeld beats it,” wrote The Hill columnist Joe Concha on Twitter.

“Trevor Noah, who repeatedly joked about the Marikana massacre, will speak at the White House Correspondents Dinner because the White House Correspondents Association does not mind laughing at working-class massacres,” wrote radio host Eric Erickson.

In 2012, the South African Police Service killed 34 miners in the so-called Marikana Massacre.

“Everyone knows what had to be done, the people on the radio, the people on the news…” You know the damn police. The damn police are out of control, they’re busy shooting people. why didn’t they use rubber bullets, why didn’t they use rubber bullets and tear gas?” Because those things don’t work anymore. They used it all week and they couldn’t control people so they had to come with ammo because these guys had guns. Plus tear gas is a waste of time. What strike has ever ended because of tear gas,” Noah said in an excerpt from an old report that went viral on Twitter.

Noah often made fun of Trump during his own show, even after the former president left office.

Last week, a comedian disembowelled the former president after reports surfaced that Trump littered the White House toilets by flushing official documents. Noah called it “the biggest thing Trump could do.”

“It’s funny that in every scandal involving Trump and the documents, not one of them is related to the fact that he reads them,” Noah said on Thursday.

“And by the way, let me put it this way, I know it’s easy for us to say, ‘Trump tried to obstruct justice! That’s what it was. Do you remember what was lacking at the beginning of the pandemic? And I don’t know about you guys, but when there’s no toilet paper, government paperwork starts to look really tempting.
