48 Times Trump Pissed Off Hollywood in His First Year as POTUS

But the former "Daily Show" correspondent gets support from other comedians, journalists and some Hollywood stars.

Comedian Michelle Wolf served as host and resident roaster at the White House Correspondents' Dinner Saturday night, and she sent spirited barbs flying all over the room, with many of them hitting White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. She also blamed the media itself for creating Donald Trump, and claimed they were both complaining about and profiting off of him.

"You guys are obsessed with Trump," she told the assembled reporters. "You helped create this monster, and now you're profiting off of him. And if you're going to profit off of Trump, you should at least give him some money, because he doesn't have any."

Her appearance proved to be one of the more controversial WHCD sets in recent memory, with everyone on the right and people across the media upset with her commentary. In particular, Wolf got a lot of grief for some of her jokes about Sanders.

At one point, she said, "I actually really like Sarah. I think she's very resourceful. She burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye." Many critics took this as an insult on Sanders' appearance, but we don't think it was, and neither does Wolf.

Below are some of the harshest tweets against Wolf from the worlds of politics and the media, followed by those who were willing to step up and defend her, with some arguing that Donald Trump does and has said things just as bad, if not worse.
