Did Michelle Wolf Kill the White House Correspondents' Dinner?

"But you know, because I'm a woman, I can say things about women because I know what it's like to be a woman, if that makes any sense".

"At the risk of diving into a master class episode of what-about-ism, I hink they are two completely different things", Miller began. I didn't want to cater to the room. Cuomo interviewed Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union, who tweeted that he and his wife, Mercedes Schlapp, director of strategic communications at the White House, walked out of the dinner.

Wolf's targeting of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders drew particular scrutiny, with some commentators interpreting her remarks as an attack on Huckabee Sanders's physical appearance.

Her performance was shown live on CNN and several other channels.

Margaret Talev, president of the reporters' organization that puts on the dinner, said in a statement that she'd heard from members who expressed dismay with Wolf's monologue.

Some prominent journalists joined Trump administration aides in defending Sanders.

She criticised Kellyanne Conway and Ivanka Trump but strangely, the most controversial joke of the night seems to have been one about Sarah Huckabee Sanders' "perfect smoky eye". "I think she's very resourceful", Wolf said at the WHCA dinner.

She then quipped, "I actually really like Sarah. I made fun of Mitch McConnell's neck and I did a small jab at Chris Christie's weight and no one is jumping to their defense".

Wolf's 19-minute set also took on Democrats and the news media itself.

On Facebook, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders proudly embraced an unflattering comparison to Aunt Lydia from the Handmaid's Tale.

"It's supposed to not be serious when the President of the United States, or candidate Trump did it".

Wolf told Gross that "having the ability to laugh at yourself is important". The Trump administration (and its legion of frothing supporters) love to scream FAKE NEWS and SNOWFLAKE, but when it suits them to retcon facts to indulge their own naked oversensitivity, they grab it with all the enthusiasm of a.well, you know what. Tensions have been heightened. "It's probably lies", Wolf said. Maybe she's born with it.

On Sunday the president called Wolf's act "filthy" via Twitter.

"This was a total disaster and an embarrassment to our great Country and all that it stands for", he wrote.

Wolf had become a political symbol, much like Parkland student Hogg when he spoke out on gun restrictions, Khan when he spoke against Trump at the Democratic National Convention, Griffin when she posted a picture of herself with a mock-up of Trump's severed head.

In particular, Sanders sat while a team of CNN reporters received the Merriman Smith Award for their reporting on the so-called Russian Federation dossier. And Wolf is right: Sanders really does lie a lot. "I would say if this is about celebrating the media, she wasn't there to celebrate the media".
