Saturday, April 29 was the 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency, as well as the annual White House Correspondents Dinner. Trump skipped the dinner, hosted by The Daily Show’s Hasan Minhaj, and it was not quite the glitzy celebrity-attended party it has been in the past. Minhai got in pointed jabs about Trump and the meida, and you can watch the whole monologue below.

More of Hollywood, however, was in attendance at Samantha Bee‘s ‘Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner’ held early Saturday, which featured Will Ferrel (reprising his George W. Bush), Allison Janney (reprising her West Wing role, CJ Cregg), George Takei, Kumail Nanjiani, Rhea Butcher, Cameron Esposito and others. The night was opened by Peaches, who performed “Boys Wanna Be Here” (which is used as theme to Full Frontal With Samantha Bee). Peaches was backed by Thundercunt! which included Kathi Wilcox (Bikini Kill/Julie Ruin), Gina Volpe (Lunachicks), and Betsy Wright (Ex Hex). You can watch that, and the entire special, below.

Elsewhere: New York Senator Chuck Schumer made a Spotify playlist in response to Trump’s first 100 days, and Trump returns to NYC for the first time since taking office on Thursday.
