Heads Up: It’s WHCD arrivals time

Coverage starts at 6:15 on C-Span

Β And this is the C-Span WHCD channel – not sure if this link will have live coverage too, or if it’s just showing previous WHCDs?

Try MSNBC, CBS and CNN too – and E!

****

Don’t know when the President is due to speak, but coverage at White House live starts at 9:45

    LL, wow, great writing, saving to favorites so can read it over and over. Time to hit the phone calls again, those in Washington must not think we are not paying attention.

    What time will FLOTUS and POTUS arrive?

  8. April 27, 2013 at 6:20 pm

    I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it… can’t wait to see my dashing President and stunning First Lady. Hi Chipsy love the dress πŸ™‚

    Hey, TODers. I gotta hang out with the cool kids tonight to see what you’re saying about the WHCD. Who was that person saying she loved Fox and Bill O’Reilly?

    • April 27, 2013 at 6:21 pm

      Hellooooo Proud! Ugh, glad I missed that person.

    • 45 hopefruit2
      April 27, 2013 at 6:24 pm

      Proud you noticed that the camera never showed the person while they were singing O’Reilly’s praises? The camera was focused on another celebrity the whole time that fool was going on and on about how she “loved FOX news and O’Reilly?”

    I adore seeing my POTUS and FLOTUS at this but to me the WHCD shows exactly what is wrong with the beltway media. They think everything is all about them.

    • 55 hopefruit2
      April 27, 2013 at 6:26 pm

      And particularly since PBO came about. They see how popular he is and are desperately trying to tap into some of his popularity. As Pink Bunny said, when PBO leaves the WH, the WHCD is going to go right back to being the boring event that it was prior to 2009.

      • 56 proudofobama
        April 27, 2013 at 6:28 pm

        Exactly! I never watched until President Barack Obama. Nobody cares about chipmunk Ed Henry and GOP water carrier Chuck Todd.

    • April 27, 2013 at 6:26 pm

      Yeah, I was saying that last night Proud, I wish there was a feed of the President and Conan’s speeches that didn’t switch to the audience every minute, I seriously don’t want to see any of those creatures’ faces.

      April 27, 2013 at 6:27 pm

      I think that is true of at least 70% of the people who will be tuning in tonight πŸ™‚ This function has now become a huge event – thanks to PBO & FLOTUS.

        April 27, 2013 at 6:29 pm

        Some msm person was talking about how the WHCD has become the event that all of Hollywood wants to come to.Well, duh, only because of POTUS and FLOTUS.

      • 61 anniebella
        April 27, 2013 at 6:59 pm

        hopefruit2, you say 70%, I say more like 99%. One question, why are they having red carpet?

        • 62 hopefruit2
          April 27, 2013 at 7:03 pm

          I think you are right annie – it’s closer to 99% than 70%. I think the red carpet started because more celebrities from Hollywood have been attending, so they follow the tradition of the Golden Globes, Oscars, etc. πŸ™‚

      Proudofobama, I just almost spilled my first glass of wine all over me when my second crush, our wonderful AG Eric Holder walked in, but ofcouse, I love Dr. Sharon M. Holder so much. I had to control myself. I admire both of them so much! A lot of history in both of those two beautiful vessels, our AG Eric Holder and his beautiful wife.

      Okay, sipping and watching.HZ

      I am looking forward to seeing FLOTUS and POTUS. If they weren’t going to be there I wouldn’t be watching it.

  29. April 27, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    Ah, I see coverage at White House live starts at 9:45, so presumably speaks around then?

  30. April 27, 2013 at 6:41 pm

    screeeeeeeeeeech!!!!! ‘cuzi, cuzi, dahlinks….I just made it from the red carpet in time to share the rest of the evening with the real stars of the show, the one and only TODsters. When they asked me who I was wearing I said, ‘Why the naughty mat by Chica Chippa”
    Pardon me a moment while I slip into something a little less…..revealing and much more comfortable.

    Watching people pose is torture.

    • April 27, 2013 at 6:47 pm

      Truly. Who was that blonde woman who almost fell over backwards while posing? Very silly people.

      • April 27, 2013 at 6:49 pm

        UGH, that’s who I had in mind. Way silly.

          April 27, 2013 at 7:00 pm

          Some gals march right on by and others stand and pose—-for 20 minutes! Just watched one gal demonstrate multiple poses of her back! this way and that way and head tilted up and then tilted down—–and look this way and look that way. And then back to front view—-pout face. It was an amazing spectacle. I can’t imagine myself ever doing that—ever being that full of myself—-well, maybe if I ever got to borrow that stunning chips gown.

    too much chatter by folks who want to leave an impression. Little do they know that the impressions are not exactly the best foot forward kinda stuff. Who are these people anyway? This is as loud and unruly as I’ve ever seen it. It must be the E! in them.

      Same thing here, Linda. I could actually go as I am at the Buzzfeed party/bar crawl. I wonder if anyone going to #nerdprom will actually go to the other one. I probably wouldn’t. Not as many cameras, and if I’m wearing a 2K dress, darned if I’m going to ruin it at a pub crawl.

  41. April 27, 2013 at 6:54 pm

    WHOA, CSPAN covering the BuzzFeed whiniest? GEEZE.

  42. 150 hopefruit2
    April 27, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    So based on what I heard from the CSPAN reporter, the WHCD has become such a high-demand event that there weren’t enough tables for some media such as Buzzfeed?

  43. 153 proudofobama
    April 27, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    Bwahahaha! Buzzfeed was turned down for a table to WHCD. Guess they’re not as cool as they think they are.

    Tracy Morgan and Tamron Hall were separately asked who they think will be funnier POTUS or Conan – both said President Obama of course!!

    difference is stark between those of us who love PBO and the haters is really reflected in how we address him – supporters almost always say President

    • 172 hopefruit2
      April 27, 2013 at 7:12 pm

      I have heard some supporters call him “Obama.” There are some who use it disrespectfully, but a significant minority use it with no intention of disrespect.

    Since I thought this was on LAST NIGHT, I’m really anxious to see this. Check that. I’m anxious to see the President. I could care less about these other self important people that like to pose a lot….just reading what you all have posted….not turning it on until it’s almost time for PBO to be pointed with that megawatt smile on his face…and his little laugh at the end…that gets me every time!
    I’m ready, in my Saturday best. Yoga pants and bare feet. Gowns have nothing on this. All those women can only DREAM of being bare foot and comfy:) I’ll just sit here with my cocktail, listening to PBO…and LMAO, watching all the newsstainers get slayed in plain sight…..
