Biden brings WH correspondents' dinner back, is roasted by Trevor Noah
The dinner is the first since 2016.
US President Joe Biden has brought back the tradition of speaking at the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner after its suspension which lasted 6 years.
Biden was the first to speak at the annual event, which dates back to 1921.
The event was boycotted by former president Donald Trump and was canceled for two years due to the pandemic.
Celebrities, journalists and high-ranking US officials attended the event, including Kim Kardashian, Pete Davidson, Chris Tucker, Trevor Noah, and Drew Barrymore.
Biden slammed Trump in his speech: "This is the first time a president has attended this dinner in six years. It's understandable, we had a horrible plague followed by two years of Covid."
Trevor Noah also threw a remark: "It's actually nice to, once again, have a president who is not afraid to come to the White House Correspondents' Dinner and hear jokes about himself."
Biden also took some blows.
Noah, addressing Biden, said "Ever since you've come into office, things are really looking up. Gas is up, rent is up, food is up. Everything."

"President Biden's lack of a filter does get him into hot water sometimes," he added. Last month he caused a huge international incident saying that Vladimir Putin should be removed from power.
"It was very, very upsetting to Russia. Until someone explained to them that none of the stuff Biden wants actually gets done."
