With the dinner being held tonight, we are re-upping our posts from this week previewing theWhite House Correspondents' Dinner is Saturday, with festivities starting Thursday and lasting all weekend. The annual funniest/glitziest/most over-done night in Washington will be full of selfdeprecating laughs and selfies with celebrities. Here's what we know about it so far. "Saturday Night Live" comedian Cecily Strong will host. You might remember her as "Girl You Wish You Hadn't Started a Conversation with at a Party" and for her stint as a "Weekend Update" host.
