Stephen Colbert Tells WHCA To 'Grow A Pair' After Michelle Wolf Debacle

02 May 2018

Wolf was not without her supporters, as late-night talk show hosts on Monday night rallied to her defense.

Wolf has denied she took aim at Ms Sanders looks, and said "all these jokes were about her despicable behaviour". "You can't just say whatever you want". "She burns facts, and then she uses that ash to create a ideal smokey eye", Wolf said of Sanders.

On Late Night, Seth Meyers said that Trump likely has some questions for Mueller, too, and he listed some.

Fallon then speculated on why Trump was so upset about Wolf's jokes at Sanders' expense. "That's like a parent sending an email saying yesterday's birthday was meant to celebrate Kevin turning six years old".

"First Michelle, let's address your potty mouth", he said directly into the camera.

"Trump called it a very big, boring bust", Jimmy Fallon said Monday night.

These two sides are two of the biggest in Europe, so it is no surprise they have met more times than anyone in Champions League . We'll have to play like we never have before this year: we need concentration, determination, commitment, to win battles.

Afterward, she was criticized for her use of expletives and her personal jabs at press secretary Sarah Sanders and counselor to the president, Kellyanne Conway. "Now get out of the way, we have to put up this plaque in memory of the courageous people roasted to death by Michelle Wolf".

But there's been an edge to the event since Donald Trump became president, since his disdain for the media is well-known and the left-wing media has called him a danger to the country.

Some have pointed to a controversy earlier this year over former staff secretary Rob Porter, who was ousted amid a scandal involving allegations that he abused two ex-wives, as a turning point in terms of Kelly's influence.

Now, pressure on the Correspondents' Association to reimagine the dinner is building, ratcheted up by social media, a heightened political climate and a frustrated press corps wondering if a sober moment for American journalism requires a comparably sober event. The inclusion of an entertainer was meant, originally, as a counterbalance to the president, who traditionally delivered his own zinger-packed monologue, flaying his foes and roasting the roasters.

On Sunday the president called Wolf's act "filthy" via Twitter.

Wolf has since pushed back against the criticism, saying she didn't mock Sanders' appearance and joked about her "despicable behavior". "Being mad at her for doing her job is like accusing the valet of briefly stealing your vehicle", he joked.

We can be upset for 10 minutes and then after that, we've got to get our rest and then get ready for Tuesday". Jacob Trouba has watched Mark Scheifele's progression to becoming a star forward more closely than others.

"Stop acting like you're surprised", he continued.

Wolf sparked both praise and condemnation for her scathing "roasts".

There's an important backdrop for this dinner debate: President Trump's sustained attacks against the news media, including the White House press corps.

Wolf is known as a contributor on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show With Trevor Noah". "Unfortunately, it seems that some comedians like Michelle Wolf don't understand that". She also said she loved Sanders as "Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid's Tale" - references some commentators allege were about Sanders' appearance. Is it Sarah Huckabee Sanders? You know, when Trump's insulting women he just says fat, ugly, face and none of that smart comedy with layers of meaning.

In his interview with Schlapp, Cuomo pressed the point that many Trump opponents made: how can you be insulted by Wolf's routine and not by some of the things that Trump has said or done?
