THE INTERNET IS FREAKING OUT OVER WHAT SHE JUST SAID. This is Amazing!
The Internet Is *Freaking Out* Over Michelle Wolf's White House Correspondents' Dinner Jokes
Last night, comedian Michelle Wolf took the stage at the White House Correspondents' Dinner to roast the Washington elite and the media alike. Her no-holds-barred (and hilarious!) speech gained mixed reactions. While some snowflakes thought she was too harsh, others said her jokes were probably just hard for some to stomach because they cut to uncomfortable truths.
I attended the WHCD last night. Donald Trump has so poisoned the atmosphere by attacking the disabled, gold star parents, Muslims, Mexicans, Blacks, women, the press, the rule of law that a comedian who simply tells the truth is offensive? She’s joking. He’s not.— Rob Reiner (@robreiner) April 29, 2019
Here are some of Wolf's best jokes from the 2019 White House Correspondents' Dinner.
On Sarah Huckabee Sanders:
“I have to say I’m a little star-struck. I love you as Aunt Lydia inThe Handmaid’s Tale. Mike Pence, if you haven’t seen it, you would love it."
“I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful. But she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye. Like maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies. It’s probably lies.”
Some thought Wolf went after Sanders for her looks:
Watching a wife and mother be humiliated on national television for her looks is deplorable. I have experienced insults about my appearance from the president. All women have a duty to unite when these attacks happen and the WHCA owes Sarah an apology.— Mika Brzezinski (@morningmika) April 29, 2019
But others pointed out that Wolf explicitly didn't do that.
The more I think about it, the more impressed I am that Michelle Wolf did such a harsh act WITHOUT insulting any woman's looks. She aimed straight at the white female enforcers & never once suggested that anyone was a bimbo or a dog—like the man they work for surely would have.— Emily Nussbaum (@emilynussbaum) April 29, 2019
And Michelle herself responded to the controversy:
On Kellyanne Conway:
"She has the perfect last name for what she does, Conway … You guys have got to stop putting Kellyanne on your shows. All she does is lie. If you don’t give her a platform, she has nowhere to lie. It’s like that old saying, if a tree falls in the woods, how do we get Kellyanne under that tree? I’m not suggesting she gets hurt. Just stuck. Stuck under a tree."
On Ivanka Trump:
"There’s also, of course, Ivanka. She was supposed to be an advocate for women, but it turns out she’s about as helpful to women as an empty box of tampons. She’s done nothing to satisfy women. So, I guess like father, like daughter."
On the voices of women in 2019:
"It’s 2019 and I’m a woman so you cannot shut me up. Unless you have Michael Cohen wire me 0,000."
On the media:
"You guys are obsessed with Trump. Did you use to date him? Because you pretend like you hate him, but I think you love him. I think what no one in this room wants to admit is that Trump has helped all of you. He couldn’t sell steaks or vodka or water or college or ties or Eric. But he has helped you. He’s helped you sell your papers and your books and your TV. You helped create this monster and now you’re profiting off of him. And if you’re going to profit off of Trump, you should at least give him some money because he doesn’t have any."
On an insult she thinks would actually hurt Trump:
"People call Trump names all the time. And look, I could call Trump a racist or a misogynist or xenophobic or unstable or incompetent or impotent. But he’s heard all of those and he doesn’t care. So tonight, I’m going to try to make fun of the president in a new way, in a way that I think will really get him. Mr. President: I don’t think you’re very rich. Like I think you might be rich in Idaho, but in New York you’re doing fine."
On white nationalists:
"[Trump] loves white nationalists, which is a weird term for a Nazi. Calling a Nazi a white nationalist is like calling a pedophile a ‘kid friend.’ Or Harvey Weinstein a ‘ladies man.’ Which isn’t really fair.
