Comedian Michelle Wolf has lost the support of the White House Correspondents Association following her disastrous performance at this weekend’s Correspondents Dinner.
Wolf’s vulgar attacks on Sarah Sanders and Kellyanne Conway proved too much for many viewers. Wolf’s terrible set was made worse by Sanders’ dignified blank looks at the comedian during the performance.
Wolf first appeared on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah in 2016, but was listed as a former cast member when she appeared at the White House.
The Correspondents head Margaret Talev from Bloomberg defended Wolf on CNN, but then backed off that defense in a statement. People are sick and tired of gross so-called liberal entertainers mouthing off with no professional consequences.
“Last night’s program was meant to offer a unifying message about our common commitment to a vigorous and free press while honoring civility, great reporting and scholarship winners, not to divide people. Unfortunately, the entertainer’s monologue was not in the spirit of that mission.”
