No one who has heard about Lindsay Lohan’s invitation to The White House Correspondents’ Dinner on April 28 has received the announcement without letting their jaws drop to the floor. Unfortunately for Daily Show correspondent, John Oliver, Hollywood.com was the one to break it to him on the red carpet at the second annual Comedy Awards in New York on April 28. And he was not happy about the news.
And while many of the Daily Show’s cast were appalled or entertained by Lohan’s attendance at the annual press event, Wyatt Cenac had a very distinct point to add into the mix: “She’s not a news a person, but the news does devote a lot of time to her, so by that logic she is owed anything. They’ve made a lot of ad sales doing stories about the minutiae of her life, so I think she’s probably earned the right to walk into any news establishment, eat anything out of their breakroom, and then vomit wherever she wants to.”
Luckily for news establishments everywhere and for America, Lohan didn’t make any such mess and her presence at the event did not destroy the country (as far as we know).
