The liberal comedian at the center of this year’s annual White House Correspondents’ Press Dinner took the star-studded event from swamp straight to the gutter this weekend; slamming senior Trump officials and making wildly inappropriate jokes as the press watched in stone-cold silence.
Left-wing comic Michelle Wolf unloaded on members of the President’s cabinet -many of whom were in attendance- during the ceremony held in “honor of the First Amendment” and journalists across the country.
“I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful,” Wolf said, referencing White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “She burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye. Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies. It’s probably lies.”
“I’m never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” the comedian continued. “Is it Sarah Sanders? Is it Sarah Huckabee Sanders? Is it Cousin Huckabee? Is it Auntie Huckabee Sanders? Like, what’s Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women?”
Even the New York Times Maggie Haberman defended Sanders, saying she acted “impressively” by not walking-out of the event mid-roast.
That @PressSec sat and absorbed intense criticism of her physical appearance, her job performance, and so forth, instead of walking out, on national television, was impressive.
