According to the current trends on Twitter, the hashtag #WHCD is ruling the roost. That’s because WHCD stands for the White House Correspondents Dinner, and those who aren’t privy to attend the event can find out all the happenings via social media updates from those who are there. First and foremost, First Lady Michelle Obama chose a curly look for her hair that’s receiving plenty of compliments online.
