Correspondents Dinner | Tarragona Newspaper

Since Calvin Coolidge attended the first in 1924, fifteen presidents have attended the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which in recent years has been skipped by Donald Trump, who was no joke.

Joe Biden, 79, showed his good humor at last week’s gathering when he began by telling his 2,000 listeners: “I’m excited to be with the only group of Americans with a lower approval rating than me.” For his predecessor he had a taunt: “We had a horrible plague… followed by two years of Covid.”

Seriously, Biden paid tribute to the war reporters in Ukraine, whom he described as “guardians of the truth, increasingly necessary when disinformation grows, the poison of our democracy.”
