The person who hired comedian Michelle Wolf for the White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCD) set the journalists afire. Many were shocked, just shocked. The comedian managed to slam a wide variety of people in the snow globe world of politics and journalism, and one prominent, surprising person liked it.
The point of hiring Wolf was to get the political journalists talking, and no doubt, she accomplished that goal. During the event, even those who loved it tried to hide their laughter behind an appropriately placed hand.
That was not the case with son number two in the Donald Trump family. Eric Trump had a grand old time watching Wolf roast the White House press secretary.
The comedian bravely carried on her routine, even though Sanders was a mere two feet away from her. Wolf even turned to the press secretary as she continued comedic line after line.
Washington has always been a town where people tend to be pleasant to another’s face, then shove a stiletto in deep the moment they pass. People walk away hardly aware that blood has been dripping down their backs.
Yet, that was not Eric Trump’s attitude. He jumped on a tweet where Wolf “destroy’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders to her face” and hit the like:
‘Michelle Wolf Destroys Sarah Huckabee Sanders To Her Face At White House Correspondents Dinner https://www.politicususa.com/2018/04/28/michelle-wolf-destroys-sarah-huckabee-sanders-to-her-face-at-white-house-correspondents-dinner.html … via @politicususa’
Sanders looked lovely at the event in a patriotic blue dress and with her hair and makeup well done. Unfortunately, the grimaces on her face during Wolf’s performance ruined the entire effect.
