Apparently, the White House Correspondents Association isn’t trying to court President Trump for its annual dinner, an event POTUS skipped last year. Fierce Trump critic Michelle Wolf, a Daily Show alum whose weekly Netflix show will launch later this year, has been named host this year’s April 28 nerd prom. “Our dinner honors the First Amendment and strong, independent journalism,” said Margaret Talev, president of the White House Correspondents Association. “[Wolf’s] embrace of these values and her truth-to-power style make her a great friend to the WHCA.” President Trump had already said, via White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, that he hasn’t decided whether or not to attend.

Parks and Recreation creator Michael Schur was among those who did not take kindly to the NRA using Amy Poehler’s character in a GIF from his NBC comedy.

I would prefer you not use a GIF from a show I worked on to promote your pro-slaughter agenda. Also, Amy isn’t on twitter, but she texted me a message: ‘Can you tweet the NRA for me and tell them I said f- off?’”
