The White House Correspondents’ Dinner returned following a two-year pandemic-related hiatus. In the dinner's notorious roasting style, Trevor Noah delivered remarks poking fun at politicians and pundits in both parties -- whether or not they were in the audience.

While mocking Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL), Noah alluded to DeSantis being in attendance, though the governor was not there.

"The Daily Show" host and comedian said he was surprised DeSantis found the time to attend, given how busy he was trying to “outmaneuver Trump for 2024." 

Many expect DeSantis will enter the race for president. DeSantis has denied it.

Noah kept on his roll, roasting DeSantis, describing him as better than Trump because DeSantis could “walk down ramps.” 

Noah also commended DeSantis for being one step ahead of Trump. “Trump said he won the election, but everyone was just able to look at the numbers and see that he was wrong. That’s why Ron DeSantis is one step ahead. First, you ban the math textbooks, then nobody knows how to count the votes,” Noah said.

DeSantis said his office had rejected the invitation to the dinner and that he did not watch the program.
