President Obama and Larry Wilmore at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner The annual White House correspondents’ dinner—the last of Barack Obama’s presidency—will take place Saturday night.
As he does every year, Obama will speak and tell jokes. Comedian Larry Wilmore will host the event, and he has said he’s looking forward to taking on the challenge of hosting Obama’s last dinner and using the 2016 presidential race as comedic inspiration. Wilmore and other celebrities have also predicted that Republican frontrunner Donald Trump will be the subject of many of the evening’s jokes. C-SPAN’s coverage of the 2016 White House Correspondents’ Dinner features guest red carpet arrivals, interviews on preparations for the event, as well as remarks by President Obama and The Nightly Show’s Larry Wilmore.
