Comedian Stephen Colbert told the White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) to “grow a pair” and stop bowing to media pressure after Michelle Wolf bombed at the correspondents’ dinner Saturday.
“Look, you didn’t like it, you have that right. Don’t invite her back again, but grow a pair,” Colbert said on “The Late Show” Monday.
Colbert said the responsibly for the fallout rests with the WHCA, not with Wolf and thinks they should have done better research before they decided to give her the role.
“This was a roast! And you’re the ones who hired Michelle Wolf! Being mad at her for doing her job is like accusing the valet of briefly stealing your car,” Colbert concluded.
“And stop acting like you’re surprised. I thought news people did research! But you’re telling me you couldn’t spend 90 seconds on YouTube to find out what her act was like? As a great man once said, ‘Fake News.’”
