Is it time to end the White House Correspondents' Dinner?

"Sarah Huckabee Sanders lies to the American people nearly every day and defends the lies, incompetence and cruel behavior of the most unqualified and embarrassing President in modern times", he wrote on Twitter. I have to say I'm a little star-struck.

If you were offended by Michelle Wolf's comedy routine on Saturday night, Stephen Colbert doesn't feel sorry for you. I think in general when I talk about women, like in my special when I talked about Hillary [Clinton], I called Hillary a b****, which you later find out is a compliment. Wolf also drew a comparison to the title character in the anti-slavery novel "Uncle Tom's Cabin".

"I mean, if there is two people that I actually made fun of their looks on Saturday, it was Mitch McConnell and Chris Christie", Wolf told Gross. "If you're going to profit off of Trump, you should at least give him some money, because he doesn't have any". Is it Sarah Huckabee Sanders? Is it Auntie Huckabee Sanders? "But that also means that the dinner must be non-partisan and done without hostility and personal animus toward the party that occupies the White House - regardless of who is in power".

The very amusing Michelle Wolf has been derided by Washington's least amusing folk because they didn't like what she said at the weekend. She said she will work with the incoming president of the group and take comments from members on their views "on the format of the dinner going forward".


"All these jokes were about her despicable behavior", Wolf tweeted in response to New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman, who complimented Sanders for sitting through a routine that attacked her physical appearance and job performance. "She burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a ideal smokey eye".

After starting her career working at Bear Stearns and JPMorgan Chase, Wolf made her late-night comedy debut in July 2014 on Late Night with Seth Meyers. "I said she burns facts and uses the ash to create a *perfect* smoky eye", she tweeted Sunday.

"It is kinda insane that the Trump campaign was in contact with Russian Federation when the Hillary campaign wasn't even in contact with MI", she said. So, you can see why Trump was upset: "She's stealing his act". "Then we can get to the comedian". I think she's very resourceful. "Stuck under a tree", Wolf said. 5. But that is the one that I thought was most effective.
