Michelle Wolf received major blowback over her jokes at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner last month.
Wolf joked about abortion and made fun of women working in the White House, including Sarah Sanders and Kellyanne Conway.
Wolf kept up the attacks in her new Netflix show, called “The Break With Michelle Wolf.” In her debut episode, Wolf attacked Sanders again, calling her an “ugly personality.” Wolf called Sanders her “best friend” and read aloud this tweet Sanders had sent congratulating Gina Haspel on her CIA nomination.
Historic day for our country: swearing-in ceremony for Gina Haspel, the first woman ever to serve as CIA director. Democrats are losing their war against women in the Trump administration.

“Well if anyone’s an expert on hypocrites, it’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” Wolf said, “And for the record, that was not a looks-based joke. That was about her ugly personality. She has the Mario Batali of personalities.”
Wolf was criticized for attacking Sanders’s looks in her WHCD speech. Wolf compared Sanders to a woman who plays a sex-cult ringleader in the show “The Handmaid’s Tale,” criticized her makeup and called her a liar.
