The black-tie event, which Obama has previously joked is “a night when Washington celebrates itself,” brings together journalists and media moguls, Hollywood stars and policy wonks and the powerbrokers from Capitol Hill. For Obama, who is scheduled to speak around 10:20 p.m. ET (0220 GMT Sunday), it will be his final correspondents’ dinner as a sitting president.
