Donald Trump’s skin is so thin, we can see the blood flowing through his veins. The brave comedian booked for the Correspondents Dinner apparently pierced more than a few thin-skinned people during her allotted time. They attacked her, and she said “Yeah, shoulda done more research before you got me to do this,” and more.
Award winning writer for The New York Times, Maggie Haberman, could not attend the event, but she defended Sarah Huckabee Sanders against Wolf’s remarks. The Times reporter said that Sanders was “impressive:”
‘The @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.’
The dinner is a gig many comedians refuse, because it has always been a no-win situation. People get offended. Some Trump staff members even walked out of the room. Thin-skin must be highly contagious.
Given the best interpretation, maybe they all had to go to the restroom at once.
Comedian Michelle Wolf took it on and had some people cracking up. CNN hosts covered the event and seemed to be appalled. Wolf responded to Haberman’s tweet, turning the joke back upon the journalist:
‘Hey mags! All these jokes were about her despicable behavior. Sounds like you have some thoughts about her looks though? ‘
Former White House press secretary, Sean Spicer was shocked, just shocked. He tweeted:
‘Tonight’s #WHCD was a disgrace.’
Wolf handled the criticism beautifully:
She ended with a callout to the travesty of Flint, Michigan’s water supply.
Wolf will be starring in her new Netflix series. This attention should turn into a far bigger audience.
The Twitter world went crazy after Wolf tweeted. Here are some of our favorites below:
