Michelle Wolf's White House Correspondent's Dinner Jokes Send Twitter Into Furious Rage

But Mr Trump has boycotted the event since winning power, choosing this year instead to hold a rally for supporters in MI.

In hindsight, she should have gone in even deeper on the reporters who wasted no time coming to the defense of the Trump administration's mouthpiece, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, when Wolf said "she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a flawless smoky eye". Mike Pence is the kind of guy who brushes his teeth and then drinks orange juice and thinks, Mmm, ' said Wolf.

In the aftermath, the question seems to be: Did Wolf go too far?

Wolf also targeted Vice President Mike Pence ("what happens when Anderson Cooper isn't gay"), counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway ("has the ideal last name for what she does"), first daughter Ivanka Trump ("done nothing to satisfy women. like father like daughter"). In her reference to The Handmaid's Tale, Wolf compared Sanders to a character that was a complicit oppressor on behalf of an authoritarian government. We're graced with Sarah's presence tonight. "What I would like to see is a little good old fashioned consistency". Like, what's Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women?

"I'm never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee Sanders". If you want to watch the credits, you better know which button to push - and fast. Is it Sarah Huckabee Sanders?

Trump went after Tester for raising concerns about the President's former nominee for secretary of veterans affairs, White House physician Ronny Jackson, who withdrew his nomination last week after a series of allegations surfaced, including that he loosely handled prescription drugs and was periodically intoxicated.

She continued: "I knew what I was doing going in".

Yes, the White House Correspondents Association issued a statement yesterday from its president, Margaret Talev.

Sweden confirm Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not play at 2018 World Cup
Andersson hasn't spoken to Ibrahimovic recently but insinuated having Ibrahimovic back on the team would have caused issues. Sweden open their World Cup Group F campaign against South Korea on June 18 before going on to meet Germany and Mexico.

Believe it or not, Wolf even joked about abortion.

Wolf joked: "I actually really like Sarah". Like, she burns facts, and then she uses the ash to create a flawless smoky eye. 'Maybe she's born with it, maybe it's lies. These lies ignore Wolf's very real observation, which is that the president's press secretary is a fucking liar.

"That @PressSecsat and absorbed intense criticism of her physical appearance, her job performance, and so forth, instead of walking out, on national television, was impressive", tweeted Maggie Haberman of the New York Times.

Navarro noted Wolf's not the first comedian to scorch the administration in office and have the dinner survive, citing Don Imus's at bat during the Clinton administration and Stephen Colbert's appearance when George W. Bush was in office.

Lots of the dinner guests, we now know, did not end up feeling right at home as Wolf toed the line between being provocative and being offensive - a line that comedy, particularly political comedy, routinely blurs.

Some couldn't even bring themselves to admit that Sanders lies on behalf of her boss for a living.

"If a tree falls in the woods, how do we get Kellyanne under that tree", Wolf said. I'm not suggesting she gets hurt; just stuck.

Wolf, the latest professional wit invited to entertain those gathered at the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner by roasting the president, the media and the rest of the Washington establishment, cracked wise, funny, ruthless, cruel and vulgar for 19 minutes about subjects near and dear to those stakeholders.
