While Donald Trump and many in the media lick their wounds and whine about her set, Wolf's fellow comedians are tweeting their support.

Michelle Wolf has been getting a public beatdown from the media after her savage stand-up set at the White House Correspondents' Dinner Saturday, but Jimmy Kimmel and other comedians have her back.

The ABC late-night host jumped to her defense on Twitter Sunday evening, declaring her jokes "FUNNY" and then suggesting the offended journalists "hire a juggler next year."

And Kimmel wasn't the only comedian to have her back, even as the White House Correspondents' Association president, Margaret Talev, was sending out a near-apology, and Donald Trump continued to rail against the event he skipped for the second year in a row.

"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," Talev said in a statement received by the New York Post. "Unfortunately, the entertainer’s monologue was not in the spirit of that mission."

But while Donald Trump spent the weekend tweeting repeatedly about what a "total disaster" the WHCD event was, and the media on both sides of the aisle were licking their wounds and whining on social media about how mean Wolf was by attacking them and Sarah Huckabee Sanders' appearance -- which she totally did not do -- Wolf had plenty of supporters in her corner.

Below is some of that support from her fellow comedians who not only get what humor is, but what a roast is. According to them, Wolf did what she was supposed to do, and both the president and the media just need to get over it.
