Michelle Wolf took lots of shots at Trump (he skipped the dinner and wasn’t in the room so we missed those priceless reaction shots) The media that covers him also got skewered during her set at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday.
White House figures like Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kellyanne Conway (who doesn’t seem to do much but won’t seem to go away) skipped the dinner last year too but showed up this year to take shots right to the face.
Wolf started her speech, after annual journalism awards were handed out. Here are some of her best lines,
“ON STORMY DANIELS
All right, this has been long. Here we are at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Like a porn star says with a Trump, ‘Let’s get this over with.’
It’s 2018 and I am a woman, so you cannot shut me up. Unless you’re Michael Cohen and you want to wire me $130,000. Michael, you can find me on Venmo under my porn star name: Reince Priebus.
ON KELLYANNE CONWAY
Like the old saying goes, if a tree falls in the woods, how do we get Kellyanne under that tree? I’m not suggesting she gets hurt. Just stuck.
ON SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS
I’m just excited Sarah Huckabee Sanders finally gets to go to prom.
I’m never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Is it Sarah Sanders, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Is it Cousin Huckabee? Is it Auntie Huckabee Sanders? Like, what’s Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women? Oh, I know, Aunt Coulter.
I loved you as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid’s Tale. Mike Pence, if you haven’t seen it, you would love it.
ON MEGYN KELLY
Megyn Kelly got paid 23 million dollars by NBC, then NBC didn’t let Megyn go to the Winter Olympics. Why not? She’s so white, cold, and expensive, she might as well BE the Winter Olympics.
ON THE PRESS & CNN
You guys love breaking news, and you did it, you broke it! Good work! The most useful information on CNN is when Anthony Bourdain tells me where to eat noodles.
Mike Pence is what happens when Anderson Cooper isn’t gay.
People want me to make fun of Sean Hannity tonight, but I could not do that. This dinner is for journalists.“
She ended by saying,
“Flint still doesn’t have clean water!“
