Comedian Michelle Wolf (btw F YOU) has roasted President Donald Trump at the White House Correspondents’ dinner, and savagely attacked some of the president’s top staff in attendance.
The second White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in a row without the president was held on Saturday night at the Washington Hilton, as Trump held a campaign-style rally in Michigan.
Wolf’s routine was raunchy and controversial at times, including one joke about abortion that visibly unsettled the crowd, and uncomfortably personal attacks on White House staffers present.
‘It’s 2018 and I am a woman so you cannot shut me up. Unless you have Michael Cohen wire me $130,000,’ said Wolf, referencing the Stormy Daniels controversy.
‘You can find me on Venmo under my porn star name: Reince Priebus,’ she added, receiving a thumbs up from the former White House chief-of-staff Priebus in the audience.
Wolf also addressed Trump’s absence head on. ‘I would drag him here myself, but it turns out that the president of the United States is the one p***y you’re not allowed to grab,’ said Wolf, best known from her work on the Daily Show.
The room grew quiet and groans were heard as Wolf directed harsh jokes at White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was sitting just feet away, including attacks on her appearance.
‘I have to say I’m a little starstruck, I loved you as Aunt Lydia in A Handmaid’s Tale. Mike Pence, if you haven’t seen it you would love it,’ said Wolf, turning to Sanders, who had been graciously thanked for her work earlier in the evening by White House Correspondents’ Association President Margaret Talev.
‘I like Sarah, I think she’s really resourceful. She burns facts and uses the ash to create a perfect smokey eye,’ the comedian added. ‘Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies.’
‘I’m never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Is it Sarah Sanders, is it Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is it Cousin Huckabee, is it Aunt Huckabee Sanders?’ Wolf said, continuing, ‘What’s Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women? Ah I Know, Aunt Coulter.’
