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."
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!
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!
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.
Few people go to DC and accomplish what they set out to do while staying true to themselves. @michelleisawolf is one of those people.
She is definitely not funny if you are fine with a President who grabs pussy and lies daily, is a racist and sells us out to the Russians. Then it was clearly unfunny from that perspective.If you are fed up with the madness and hatred and corruption of Trump then it's was funny. https://t.co/S5JQBDfL3V
They call you liars. They call Mexicans rapists. They call Muslims murderers. They support white supremacists. But someone calls them out on what they do, & suddenly they're heroes for not walking out. https://t.co/B9aT7moy2C
i completely disagree - journalist dont get to decide which comedy is vital necessary challenging clever and funny - especially when you all were called out for ur creation of TRUMP - complicit MSM . wolf was perfect prepared and poignant. comics r truth tellers - deal with it
