The Correspondent’s Dinner was Funny: Is that Supposed to Happen?
This week the White house held the correspondent’s dinner and some pretty funny events ensued throughout the dinner. But should the dinner be held to a higher standard and be more conservative. I liked that they decided to do the anger translator and that they had a funny dialogue. That was probably the highlight of the dinner. Also a comedian had something to say about people. Cecily Strong talked about a variety of things, but the one thing she said that stood out was, “Since I’m only a comedian, I’m not going to try and tell you comedians how to do politics. That would be like you guys telling me what to do with my body. I mean, can you even imagine? Crazy.” That is really powerful to me, for some reason. If you don’t know how to do something, don’t tell other people how to do it. I think people do that a bit too often, and people don’t realize that.
Back to the anger translator: if you haven’t watched Comedy Central’s Key and Peele, one of the skit’s that is more known to the public is Obama’s anger translator. One of the actors plays Obama, and the other one plays his anger translator. They incorporated that into the correspondents dinner. What did you think of the correspondents dinner?
