The White House Correspondents Dinner happens Saturday night, broadcast on CSPAN (6 p.m.), CNN (7 p.m.) and MSNBC (9 p.m.).

The rest of it will be painfully boring.
Wilmore, host of “The Nightly Show” on Comedy Central, promises to skewer Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump pretty hard, so take note. Trump (subject of many birther jokes at the 2011 event, which he attended) has said he will not attend.
