Last night, aspiring fascist dictator, stream-of-consciousness racist, and pussy-grabbing misogynist Donald Trump attended a rally in Pennsylvania instead of attending the White House Correspondents Dinner, making him the first president to skip the event in 36 years. In response, Full Frontal host Samantha Bee held her own night, Not The White House Correspondents Dinner, in Washington DC, roasting the jowly and war-hungry commander-in-chief.

The evening opened with a performance from Peaches, who played out out a live version of Bee's Full Frontal theme "Boys Wanna Be Her" with a violin intro and a full band. It was visually arresting, her punked up band wearing black t-shirts with statements like "FREE PRESS" and "FEMINIST." What was really impressive was the presence of three Flying-V guitars and two basses to round out the sound.
