The President of the White House Correspondents Association apologized to Presidential staffers and the public following this weekend’s ‘Dirty Dinner,’ saying the event was meant to “unify” but the comedian’s “monologue was not in the spirit” of the evening.
WHC President Margaret Talev issued her official response after politicians and media pundits on both sides of the aisle slammed comedian Michelle Wolf’s offensive and inappropriate roast; slamming senior Trump aides as the press watched in horror.
“Last night’s program was meant to offer a unifying message about our common commitment to a vigorous and free press while honoring civility, great reporting and scholarship winners, not to divide people,” Talev said.
“Unfortunately, the entertainer’s monologue was not in the spirit of the mission,” she added.
President Trump weighed-in on the disastrous event on social media over the weekend, saying the evening was an “embarrassment to everyone associated with it.”
The White House Correspondents’ Dinner was a failure last year, but this year was an embarrassment to everyone associated with it. The filthy “comedian” totally bombed (couldn’t even deliver her lines-much like the Seth Meyers weak performance). Put Dinner to rest, or start over!
