Comic draws gasps at correspondents' dinner

Her response is instructive: To Wolf, an insult from Spicer is an accolade - and accolades, surely, would be an insult.

She said she wanted to address Democrats too, but "Democrats are harder to make fun of because you guys don't do anything".

Both Wolf's fans and detractors seemed to agree that it was a shocking performance, destined to go down in correspondents' dinner history. But, instead, we're covering like three topics. "And if you're going to profit off of Trump, you should at least give him some money because he doesn't have any".

But come Sunday morning, there was the 71-year-old Trump on Twitter, comparing himself to the 32-year-old comedian: "While Washington, Michigan, was a big success, Washington, D.C., just didn't work". Michelle Wolf, we salute you. Bush joked about missing WMDs - a war that killed hundreds of thousands. "She's joking. He's not". White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was the target of a number of Wolf's jokes, which took aim at her for bending the truth.

"She has the ideal last name for what she does: "Con-way" ..." All she does is lie. Is it Sarah Huckabee Sanders? We're graced with Sarah's presence tonight.

"I'm a little starstruck".

Wolf then took on Sanders, saying "I loved you as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid's Tale". If you do see the satire disclaimer it is of course also fake news. Here's an example of one of Wolf's barbs about Sanders: "I actually really like Sarah. And yeah, sure, you can groan all you want, I know a lot of you are very anti-abortion, you know, unless it's the one you got for your secret mistress". But she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a ideal smokey eye. (Maybe she should have made fun of disabled journalists instead.) With all the hullabaloo about Wolf taking aim at the Trump administration, as well as the news media for profiting off this freak show with serious domestic and worldwide stakes, a Stephen Colbert affiliated gentle jab at the President of the United States went largely unnoticed. So you know what that means, ladies. Is Sarah Huckabee Sanders? Is it Cousin Huckabee?

NBC's Kelly O'Donnell also stood up for Huckabee Sanders. She pointed out that the dinner had praised Mr. Trump for meeting with aspiring journalists at the White House and featured the story of an Egyptian social activist who was freed from prison with the help of the Trump administration.

Talev said her only regret is that Wolf's routine may now define what she called "a really wonderful, unifying night".

Wolf's act had some in the audience laughing and left others in stony silence. But, look, I invited her. It's practically her brand.

Wolf is pushing back and claims that her attacks on Sanders were not related to her appearance.

Her next remarks were saved for First Daughter and top White House aide Ivanka Trump, who she said was "supposed to be an advocate for women" but ended up being as helpful to women "as an empty box of tampons".
