Samantha Bee is Hosting Her Own Trump Roast the Night of the White House Correspondents Dinner

samantha-beeThe White House Correspondents Dinner typically involves journalists hanging out with celebrities and members of the Trump administration. A comedian roasts the President and everyone else in the room at the event, which is known as “nerd prom.” Under President Donald Trump, things might be different.
