Michelle Wolf Torches Trump Over 'So-Called Comedian' Insult

Share

Trump suggested on Twitter.

Comedian Michelle Wolf pushed back against President Donald Trump after he criticized her performance at the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) previous year, in a tweet where he said he may attend the function after skipping it repeatedly.

He said Ms. Wolf "bombed so badly" at last year's dinner, which prompted the change.

US President Donald Trump hinted Tuesday (Nov 20) he may attend the next White House Correspondents' Dinner - an event he has shunned since taking office - as no comedian is on the program.

Trump said Tuesday that the Saudis' hundreds of billions of dollars in USA military equipment purchases would go to China and Russian Federation if he didn't stand his ground despite evidence of human rights violations.

Chernow has been critical of Trump in the past, calling the president a "demagogue" in a 2016 video.

According to Reuters, Trump posted to Twitter on Wednesday to announce that it was a "good first step of a dying evening and tradition" for the White House Correspondents' Association to feature a historian, not a comedian, at its annual dinner event next year. Her personal jabs at Sarah Huckabee Sanders caused the most outrage, as well as an endless news cycle.

"Maybe I will go?" he added.

But he shouldn't expect an apolitical lecture next year from Chernow, the author whose Alexander Hamilton biography was the inspiration for Lin Manuel-Miranda's hip-hop musical about America's first treasury secretary. Maybe she's born with it, maybe it's lies'.

In an apparent response, the WHCA scrapped the traditional comedic roast this week and invited presidential biographer Ron Chernow to speak at next year's event, in a speech that's expected to touch on reporters' First Amendment rights-a move that led Wolf to denounce the organization as "cowards" while asserting that she "couldn't be prouder" of her performance. But she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a ideal smoky eye.

Prior to Trump skipping out on the 2017 and 2018 affairs, Ronald Reagan was the last president to miss the dinner in 1981 as he was recovering from an assassination attempt.

"The media is complicit".
