Last Saturday, the White House Correspondents Association dinner took place in Washington, DC. The event is always a gathering of detestable journalists who congratulate each other about the garbage they provide to the general public. But what occurred Saturday night illustrates anew why the mainstream media’s approval ratings are at record lows.
President Trump has referred to the event as the “Fake News Prom,” and for good reason. Since President Trump took office, the mainstream media (CNN and MSNBC in particular) has shamelessly embraced the anti-Trump “resistance.” The news media has been increasingly unhinged and vicious, with their relentless coverage of “Russian collusion,” Stormy Daniels, the Robert Mueller investigation, and anything that they deem to be toxic to the Trump administration.
A recent study showed that 91 percent of Trump coverage by the news media is negative, despite a booming economy, significantly improved boarder security, tax cuts, low unemployment (especially among African Americans and Latinos) and a possible peace deal with North Korea. President Trump rightfully boycotted this ridiculous event, and chose to address his supporters in Michigan, who have benefited greatly from his pro-America policies.
However, unlike last year, many Trump staffers, including Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders, decided to attend the dinner. The Trump staffers mistakenly chose to dignify this event with their presence. It did not take long for them to regret their decision.
The event was hosted by the vulgar and untalented “comedian” Michelle Wolf. Michelle Wolf was vicious, nasty, distasteful and unfunny, particularly towards Huckabee Sanders. Wolf went on to denigrate the appearance of Huckabee Sanders, and refered to her as “Uncle Tom for white women,” as Sanders sat a few seats away unable to defend herself.
Most of the predominately Liberal audience were vigorous “feminists,” and speak out passionately against bullying and racism on their fake news shows. Yet these same “advocates” had no problem supporting (with some exceptions) a Liberal comedian bullying the intelligent and talented Huckabee Sanders on live television. Why is that? Is it because Huckabee Sanders is part of the Trump administration? Is it because Huckabee Sanders is a Republican? Is it because she is the daughter of a Christian minister? Could it be because Huckabee Sanders does not take their crap, and routinely calls them out (Jim Acosta in particular) for their bias and dishonest reporting? Whatever the reason, last night’s events showed that no one with half a brain should take these so-called “journalists” seriously.
“‘She burns facts and uses the ash to create a perfect smoky eye’: Sarah Huckabee Sanders is left on the verge of tears after Michelle Wolf attacks press secretary during vicious Correspondents’ Dinner speech that Trump skipped,” by Keith Griffith, Dailymail.com, April 29, 2018:
Comedian Michelle Wolf 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 in the audience. Priebus later tweeted that the performance was ‘An R/X rated spectacle that started poorly and ended up in the bottom of the canyon.’
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.’
Wolf also took shots at counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway. ‘Man, she has the perfect name for what she does. Conway. It’s like if my last name was tells-jokes-frizzy-hair-small-tits.’
Ivanka Trump also came under fire: ‘Ivanka, she was supposed to be an advocate for women but she is about as helpful to women as an empty box of tampons.’
Wolf also compared the president’s daughter to a ‘diaper genie’, saying she ‘Looks sleek on the outside, but inside is full of s**t.’
One of the evening’s most shocking moments came while Wolf was attacking Vice President Mike Pence, and joked about abortion.
‘Mike Pence is what happens when Anderson Cooper isn’t gay. Mike Pence is the kind of guy who brushes his teeth and then drinks orange juice and thinks, Mmm,’ said Wolf.
‘He thinks abortion is murder. Which first of all don’t knock it til you try it. And when you do try it, really knock it, you gotta get that baby out of there.’…
