Michelle Wolf claimed on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” Wednesday that Sarah Sanders called her to say she enjoyed the comedienne’s performance at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last month.

The White House says otherwise.


Wolf claimed that Sanders told her she loved the jokes. It was unclear if Wolf herself was joking or being serious when she said this.

“Everyone loved it, even — actually Sarah Huckabee Sanders called me and she was like, ‘I loved it so much, I got every joke.'”

The White House told the Daily Caller Thursday that Sanders never called Wolf.

It’s not clear why Wolf made the claim, other than to perhaps make a joke about Sanders’ alleged “lying.”

At the dinner, Wolf roasted Sanders for dishonesty and being like an “Uncle Tom,” for “white women who disappoint other white women.” (RELATED: Comedian Labels Sarah Huckabee Sanders A Disappointment To White Women)

Sanders responded to the jokes  in a “Fox & Friends” appearance last week, saying, “I think that evening says a whole lot more about her than it does about me.” (RELATED: WH Press Secretary Sarah Sanders Smothers Comedian Michelle Wolf With Kindness: Hope She Finds Happiness)
