#WHCD: Michelle Wolf’s Crass ‘Comedy’ Tanks Any Credibility Media Has Left [VIDEO]

It was a pretty fair bet that the White House Correspondant’s Dinner, nicknamed the ‘Nerd Prom’ was going to have some awkward moments. Yet it’s highly doubtful that anyone expected it to turn into such a raging dumpster fire.

The media and the WHC Association itself had been making much of the fact that President Trump was going to diss them again and be a big ole meany during a campaign rally.

White House Correspondents’ Association president Margaret Talev said, “We reject efforts by anyone, especially our elected leaders, to paint journalism as un-American.”

“An attack on one journalist is an attack on us all,” Talev, a Bloomberg reporter and CNN analyst added.

Yipes… that quote didn’t age well at all!  In fact, it had a shelf life of about 15 minutes.

Exactly. So, What Happened? Well, an unfunny ‘comedienne’ by the name of Michelle Wolf turned the entire evening into a sewage filled dumpster fire. This was her opening line.

“Good evening, here we are at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner; like a porn star says when she’s about to have sex with Trump, let’s get this over with,” the first of many bawdy insults.

“Bawdy???!!” Uhhh…no. I’d call that offensive and definitely unfunny. This is as well.

Sure, some folks are reporting that she attacked the media themselves as if that makes everything else she vomited out ok. But no, no it doesn’t. To be true comedy, jokes aren’t specifically directed at a person. Michelle evidently never got that memo. Furthermore, for someone who said she was only there to make jokes without an agenda, her agenda was loud and clear.

The routine should’ve been entitled, ‘How deep into the sewer can I dig, how many personal attacks can I make, and how big of a dumpster fire can I light?’

NY Times Maggie Haberman, who was given an award at the dinner, sent this out.

And Michelle fanned the flames a bit more.

Many in the media who were there and watching from afar were not amused and, in fact, recognized the damage she incurred.

I’d say journalism took a major hit.

Yes, exactly. In fact, I’d say Michelle’s supremely crass routine made life all the more difficult for credible journalists.

Yes, yes it did. Susan Katz Keating is one of many who saw last night as the dumpster fire it was, and makes an excellent point here. 

As you’ve probably seen in the media, the annual White House Correspondents Association Dinner was held last night in D.C. Over the years, I’ve been to some of these, but I always had an unsettled feeling in my gut about going. Truth is, the dinner as it now stands is corrupt and unethical. As journalists, we are charged with being independent chroniclers of events. We cannot schmooze, party, and hang out with the people we may wind up investigating.

There are credible journalists out there who work hard to objectively research and report on issues/people/events. What happened last night made things worse, not better, for great reporters like Susan.

Memo to the media hovering in the anti-Trump bubble, this doesn’t help your cause.

Yes, exactly. Michelle Wolf vomited up her crass brand of ‘comedy’ last night, and any remaining credibility the media had was hardest hit.

    I tried to not watch clips of The Wolf because I knew it would be vile. I finally gave in and watched this one minute clip. It’s worse than I thought. Whoever was responsible for hiring her needs to apologize to Sarah and if they don’t then I hope the committee fires them. That was just all around mean. There was nothing funny about it at all. I felt like I was back in high school. And some in the audience actually laughed at that crap. I hope Sarah was taking notes on who her enemies are.

  • Bryan Koeff says:

    If Sarah was this comedian’s daughter, mother, or sister, I don’t think she would have been so terribly hurtful in her prepared remarks. Regardless of politics, we human beings need to be gentle and respectful of each other at ‘all’ times.

    Sarah is tough, but no one, especially officials held in high regard by millions, should have to endure such unkind treatment. This unfortunate presentation will go down as an example of what ‘not’ to do at a ‘civil’ gathering…

    “I hope Sarah was taking notes on who her enemies are.” That should be easy. Everyone in the WH Press room on Monday.

  • harleycowboy says:

    And the media’s outrage response is …………..*crickets*………

  • Andrew says:

    While Michelle Wolf can be dismissed as a tasteless hack who used an opportunity to spew ugly ideological nonsense, the fact is that the camera caught many so-called journalists seated in the audience laughing and applauding in agreement. More than a few. We need to remember THEM.

  • MrSatyre says:

    This simply reenforces what conservatives already know. And reenforces the fantasy world liberals think exists. In other words, this article is like stating air is dry, or water is wet.

  • Harvardr says:

    Come on, be nice to Michelle. I mean, look at that picture, she’s obviously a burn victim and from the looks of it, in excruciating pain…

  • askeptic says:

    “…Yes, exactly. In fact, I’d say Michelle’s supremely crass routine made life all the more difficult for credible journalists…”

    Both of them!
