Michelle Wolf: 'I Wouldn't Change a Single Word' of WHCD Speech

Did Michelle Wolf go too far with her jokes about Sarah Huckabee Sanders?

Ryan heard about the jokes made by Michelle Wolf at Sarah Sanders expense, and said, "I heard from people I know and I can trust it was extremely inappropriate", the Washington Examiner reports.

But Wolf wasn't without her supporters.

The head of the correspondents association, Margaret Talev, expressed regret that the jokes overshadowed the dinner's celebration of the First Amendment.

For the second year in a row, Trump skipped the dinner, instead holding a rally in MI.

E. Coli outbreak tied to romaine lettuce gets worse
Forty-six people have been hospitalized, including 10 with kidney failure, which is an unusually high number of hospitalizations. If you already have store bought romaine lettuce in your fridge, the CDC said you're better off not eating and throwing it away.

Due to the feud, it didn't come as a surprise when the former host of "The Apprentice" announced that he would skip the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner for a second year in a row. "This was a total disaster and an embarrassment to our great Country and all that it stands for".

Talev, now the association's president, issued an apology after members complained about Wolf's performance. But she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a ideal smoky eye. "They shouldn't be Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders". Like maybe she's born with it, maybe it's lies"-into a sexist attack on her looks".

In the interview, airing on Tuesday's "Fresh Air" radio broadcast, Wolf said "I wasn't expecting this level" of controversy, "but I'm also not disappointed there's this level".

Washington D.C. [United States], April 30: Comedian Michelle Wolf received support by comedians as the latter was criticised by United States President Donald Trump for her comic gig at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Sunday. He liked a tweet about Wolf's takedown of Huckabee Sanders, which also included footage of the roast, and enjoyed another that described the comedian as a "class act", the Huffington Post reported.

And it appeared that the 104-year-old association's leadership was aware of that bombastic style when announcing the Hershey, Pa., native would headline the event.

She continued: "I knew what I was doing going in". That she was invited by the WHCA to keynote makes a difference.

The WHCA didn't immediately return a request for comment Monday.

Of course, the real subtext is that the people rallying to defend Sanders by reading accusations of unattractiveness into jokes about deceitfulness, female misogyny, and intimidation are actually showing that they themselves think she is unattractive, or else why would this misinterpretation have even occurred to them? Mr. President, I don't think you're very rich.

But we're now in a "much more serious environment" she said, "and to kind of not go after the big issues and just have a little fun in the room seemed just not as exciting to me".

"I know as much as some of you might want me to, it's 2018 and I'm a woman, so you can not shut me up - unless you have Michel Cohen wire me $130,000".
