On today’s Daily Daily Caller Podcast, we relive the White House Correspondents’ Dinner disaster and the personal attacks from comedian Michelle Wolf on both Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Ivanka Trump. Both are public officials, and therefore fair game to poke fun at, but Wolf went nasty and personal.
Sanders was mocked for her looks and called a liar, which did not happen during the Obama years — particularly the liar part. Weird how the “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan” lie wasn’t roundly mocked at the dinner in the Obama years and Josh Earnest and Jay Carney weren’t called liars when they attended, isn’t it?
Dear “the media” – @michelleisawolf was FUNNY. Hire a juggler next year.

Apology is owed to @PressSec and others grossly insulted ny Michelle Wolf at White House Correspondents Assoc dinner which started with uplifting heartfelt speech by @margarettalev – comedian was worst since Imus insulted Clinton’s

Unfortunately, I don’t think we advanced the cause of journalism tonight.

MSNBC personality Joy Reid has “apologized” for her newly discovered homophobic blog posts, sort of. She didn’t simply apologize, she denied she’d written them, but said she was sorry anyway. Liberals were quick to accept her non-apology, but is saying, “I genuinely do not believe I wrote those hateful things” really an apology, or is it an attempt to quickly put this behind her in an attempt to keep her job? Would she or any of her supporters accept a similar statement from any Republican and simply move on? Absolutely not. So why should anyone accept it from her?
