Michelle Wolf made all the headlines after last night’s White House Correspondents Dinner in D.C., as her set touched on everything in Washington with humor and a few biting comments… and reaction from across the spectrum is now accusing her of going too far!
The 19-minute speech focused on Donald Trump and his administration, including PR flack Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and as you can see in her full remarks (above), Wolf did NOT hold back in going after Sanders, sitting just a few seats away at the table.
There was plenty of Twitter reaction to the whole thing, too — we’ll get to that in just a second (below) — but first, ch-ch-check out two other video highlights from last night’s WHCD, first starting with our cartoon president:
And followed up with Trump’s reaction to the whole thing, during his rally in Michigan last night (below):
Why, again, does a sitting President need to do rallies for his base in the middle of his administration when he should be, you know, governing?
Wait, don’t tell us. We know the answer.
Anyways, Twitter wasn’t short on reacting to the showdown between Wolf and Sanders. Here are all the highlights (below):
A lot of people are whining “what if a man made fun of a woman’s makeup” in relation to Michelle Wolf and it’s like, my dudes, you guys elected that man

The most offensive line in Michelle Wolf’s routine was “Flint still doesn’t have clean water;” if something else she said bothers you more than that then maybe we shouldn’t trust your judgment about anything.

It’s funny how the same people who condemned Michelle Wolf as a part of the Hollywood “coastal elite” celebrity culture at the #WHCD last night were quick to embrace celebrity rapper Kanye West Kardashian last week when he spoke up for B-list Hollywood celebrity Donald Trump.

The more I think about it, the more impressed I am that Michelle Wolf did such a harsh act WITHOUT insulting any woman’s looks. She aimed straight at the white female enforcers & never once suggested that anyone was a bimbo or a dog—like the man they work for surely would have.

Every tweet I see from journalists coming to the defense of Sarah Huckabee Sanders makes more and more adamant that the only way to fix what’s broken is by replacing the entire press corps with Michelle Wolf

If conservatives really thought Michelle Wolf insulted women and mocked their appearance, they would have elected her president

Barack Obama managed to laugh at exceptionally painful birtherism at WHCD- a grievous lie fueled by the man Sarah Huckabee Sanders defends every day.
But people think Michelle Wolf was too brutal just because Sanders didn’t laugh.
It’s no wonder we are in such trouble.

Michelle Wolf did great. If it had been me, there wouldn’t even have been jokes – just me pointing at each of them and saying, “Go fuck yourself.”

There were two speeches last night:
Michelle Wolf – “Sarah Huckabee Sanders tells lies”
Trump- “Mexico is World War Z and I will shut the country down if Congress doesn’t pay for my wall”
Press Coverage – MICHELLE WOLF IS A MONSTER

Let me make sure I got this right…
Michelle Wolf roasted Sarah Huckabee Sanders on a platform where roasting is expected and she is getting criticism…
Minutes earlier Donald Trump threatened a Senator in front of thousands and gets no criticism…
This is sad.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders isn’t a fucking victim.
She chose to work for Trump, as spokesperson for the most powerful political office in the world.
She chose to shamelessly lie everyday to the American people in service to Trump.
Nobody gives Sarah Huckabee Sanders credit for dealing w/that apostate press room every day while the other Sister Wives get to rest at home in the compound.

Shameful! Sarah Huckabee Sanders went to the WHCD to be gently ribbed about constantly lying to the American people to defend this awful administration, not roundly mocked!
— Patrick Monahan (@pattymo) April 29, 2018
The worst part of Michelle Wolf’s garbage performance last night wasn’t her nasty riff on Huckabee Sanders. It was that dumpster fire abortion joke. But few were as offended by her literally celebrating baby killing as they were by her knocking eye shadow.
— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) April 29, 2018
Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a bad person, and should be reminded that others think she’s a bad person.
