Cam Newton Invited to WH Correspondents Dinner

Newton is one of several NFL players invited to attend the high profile event.

Editor's Note: Though this topic is obviously politically-related it is not an invitation to violate the ToS against political discussion.

Newton, Romo, Sherman among NFLers headed to White House | ProFootballTalk
You can get to the White House by winning the Super Bowl, or just by being a star. Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will be among the NFL players in attendance at the White House Correspondents’ dinner, according to multiple reports. Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman (who earned a trip to D.C. the old fashioned way), Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins are also scheduled to attend the high-profile event.

Considering this event is basically a celebrity roast of politicians and whoever else is in attendance I don't see how Newton avoids being a target. I'm guessing a joke about his 'fake smile' or some type of mocking of his Supercam pose. Romo and Sherman also present easy targets. I'm sure the joke writer's are drawing stuff up as I type this.

I've always enjoyed this event regardless of what party is in the White House though I don't always watch it live. I might have to try and watch this time around since Cam will be there.Doubly so now that I see who the host is. This guy is one of my favorites:

Joel McHale to host White House Correspondents’ Dinner
Comedian Joel McHale will host the White House Correspondents' Association's annual dinner this May, the group announced Friday. McHale, best known for hosting "The Soup" on E! and for his role on the NBC series "Community," follows a long line of TV hosts who used the event to skewer America's leading politicians. This year's dinner is the 100th in the history of the WHCA.

Wow I would not have guessed this tradition is a 100 years old. I don't expect McHale to pull any punches.
