Michelle Wolf: 'I Wouldn't Change a Single Word' of My WHCD Speech

Comedian Michelle Wolf's monologue at the April 2018 White House Correspondents' Dinner prompted widespread controversy, with some criticizing the nature of her jokes and others defending the routine. "That crowd, OK, many of whom were probably laughing at Colbert".

"I'd say to Michelle Wolf, 'Hallelujah, girl. I'm very happy with what I said, and I'm glad I stuck to my guns", she told Gross.

Wolf said Conway "has the ideal last name for what she does: Con-way", and also directly called her a liar. "I made fun of Mitch McConnell's neck and I did a small jab at Chris Christie's weight and no one is jumping to their defense". "I think they didn't pay attention to what was said", she added.

Although he urged future WHCA presidents not to "censor" their chosen comedians" speeches, he encouraged them to "pick one who you know is going to be more fair, not somebody who is part of the resistance and has all of Hollywood going, "You go, girl'".

And so the White House correspondents bring a self-defined edgy comedian to the dinner and expect something other than what she is known to do?

"Last night's programme was meant to offer a unifying message about our common commitment to a vigorous and free press", she wrote. "Unfortunately, the entertainer's monologue was not in the spirit of that mission".

Wolf has drawn both condemnation and admiration for her brunt, brutal jokes about Sanders and Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway.

Wolf, who begins a Netflix show later this month and is best known for work on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show", was not made available to The Associated Press on Monday. Oh, I know: "Aunt Coulter", Wolf said.

In expressing outrage after a purported attack on her looks, these reporters have gone out of their way to expose not only their lack of comedic comprehension, but their own apparent feelings about Sarah Huckabee Sanders' appearance. "I think she's very resourceful", she said. Like, she burns facts, and then she uses the ash to create a flawless smoky eye. Maybe she's born with it.

Unlike past year, when Trump aides also declined to attend, the Trump White House had its contingent, including Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

Last week: Does Trump deserve credit for peace progress between North and South Korea?

When Camerota pushed back, Miller did too, insisting "I don't see how a bad comedian, who wasn't amusing at all and went out with specific goal of trying to get even because Hillary Clinton didn't win the election in 2016...doesn't like Trump". "Put dinner to rest, or start over!"

Also, for what it's worth, if the aim is to make the White House Correspondents Dinner about journalism and scholarship, maybe don't invite a bunch of celebrities to the event or christen the event "nerd prom".

"This was a total disaster and an embarrassment to our great Country and all that it stands for".
