“Comedienne” Michelle Wolf told Late Night’s Seth Meyers Wednesday that “everyone loved” her White House Correspondents Dinner monologue – even, she claimed, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who Wolf had mocked in her speech as “an Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women” who “burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye.”
"It went great, and every single person loved it," Wolf quipped. "Across the board."
"Everyone loved it — even, actually Sarah Huckabee Sanders called me, and she was like 'I loved it so much; I got every joke,'" Wolf added.
Well, everyone, that is, except CBS News executives, who, according to the New York Times, “were so dismayed by Saturday’s presentation that the network considered ending its participation in future dinners.”
And NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell, who tweeted that an “apology is owed” to the White House press secretary.
And everyone at The Hill, who pulled their entire outlet from the White House Correspondents Association thanks to Wolf’s stunt.
And the actual White House Correspondents Association, who issued a formal apology for Wolf’s speech.
And Sarah Huckabee Sanders herself, who told Fox & Friends the following week that Wolf’s insulting speech “says a whole lot more about her than it does about me.”
Actually, come to think of it, Wolf may want to rethink her definition of “everyone.” Along with her definition of “comedy.”
