Comedian Michelle Wolf, a former contributor and writer for 'The Daily Show' with Trevor Noah, presented at the White House Correspondents' Dinner this past weekend. She's getting a lot of backlash for her comments that were not viewed as funny but instead insulting, distasteful, and ignorant. She made a lot of comments to the women in POTUS Trump's administation, taking stab at their looks or style in a way that was just plain mean, not funny. Wolf took aim at Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Trump's adult children, KellyAnne Conway, Democrats, Republicans, and of course President Trump himself. The comments made about Huckabee-Sanders are getting a lot of attention due to the fact that she was seated right next to the podium where Wolf was bashing her so it was awkward for sure.
Did you find her comments funny? As you can tell, Sarah here was not amused one bit. Many others were not either. Former Press Secretary Sean Spicer, "Spicy", expressed his thoughts on Twitter on just how he felt about the whole display...

President Trump was not in attendence at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. Instead he was at a rally in Michigan, talking to a jam packed crowd in what was a campaign style rally. He mentioned to the crowd...“You may have heard I was invited to another event tonight...I’d much rather be in Washington, Mich., than Washington, D.C.” He talked about his economic and diplomatic accomplishments and couldn't help but bash the media, most recently for not giving him credit for Friday's historic meeting between the two Korean leaders.
While the President did not attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner, he certainly got briefed on what happened and what was said. This is the second year the President has not attended the dinner, as it's no secret he's not a fan of the media. Instead he sent some members from his administation to represent him. He was not shy (as he never is) in expressing his disgrace regarding the dinner.
While Washington, Michigan, was a big success, Washington, D.C., just didn’t work. Everyone is talking about the fact that the White House Correspondents Dinner was a very big, boring bust...the so-called comedian really “bombed.” @greggutfeld should host next year! @PeteHegseth— Donald J.

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner was a failure last year, but this year was an embarrassment to everyone associated with it. The filthy “comedian” totally bombed (couldn’t even deliver her lines-much like the Seth Meyers weak performance). Put Dinner to rest, or start over!— Donald J.

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is DEAD as we know it. This was a total disaster and an embarrassment to our great Country and all that it stands for. FAKE NEWS is alive and well and beautifully represented on Saturday night!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 30, 2018
