The Oscar Dig Won The Crowd

The infamous slapping incident wasn’t forgotten at the 2022 Oscars and not at the White House Correspondent dinner event. Trevor joked by saying, “It is risky making jokes these days,” “We all saw what happened at the Oscars. I’ve actually been a bit worried about tonight. I’m not going to lie.

What if I make a really mean joke about Kellyanne Conway, and her husband rushes up on the stage and thanks me?”

This clearly referenced the slap that took place when Chris Rock made an insensitive joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair. Well, Jada is very open about her struggles with alopecia and chose to be the bald cause of that.

Now, after that, the comment was passed, Will Smith got angry and he went up on the stage and slapped his long-time friend, Chris Rock. Though the matter has been solved by now. On that note, Will Smith is banned for 10 years from the Oscars.

So, Trevor taking a dig at an incident that happened days before reveals that Hollywood is still recovering from the effects of this incident.

He Also Addresses About The Rise In Prices

Even President Biden wasn’t spared when it came down to roasting the current price inflation. “I think everyone will agree that it’s actually nice to once again have a president who’s not afraid to come to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and hear jokes about himself. I’ll be honest, if you didn’t come, I totally would have understood because these people have been so hard on you, which I don’t get.

I really don’t. And I think ever since you’ve come into the office, things are really looking up. You know gas is up, rent is up, food is up, everything.”

Ongoing Russia’s war with Ukraine did affect the prices of gas, food, and much more. Besides, the aftermath of the pandemic has worsened it and many Americans are failing to cope-up with the rise in prices and the government is in hot water now.

Though Biden himself has joked about his recent poll ratings and how it has lowered compared to before. It was very sporting of the president to take all these matters in a light mood.

 Trevor did go ahead with his jokes and one was even about the First Lady. He said, “Even as the first lady, Dr. Biden continued her teaching career.

The first time a presidential spouse has done so, ever. Congratulations. Now, you might think it’s because she loves teaching so much, but it’s actually because she’s still paying off her student debt. I’m sorry about that, Jill. I guess you should’ve voted for Bernie.”

Different controversial topics were highlighted and even Donald Trump got a spot in it. Well, Trevor did really win the show and hearts of the attendees and this dinner event went excellently well. Trevor Noah was definitely the showstopper and this event surely opened new doors of success.
