The so-called comedian really "bombed'". "He can't digest simple jokes, that's why lol", one tweet read. Make people laugh their extremities off.
A blistering critique of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was seated just feet away, mocked everything from her truthfulness to her appearance and Southern roots.
It's amusing because it's true!
Comedian Michelle Wolf appeared at the dinner and in her monologue tore into the administration including, Sanders. "Did you really expect anything else?"
I mean, even the people who do not agree with her or don't like her have to admit that she's not a mean person.
"I have to say I'm a little starstruck, I loved you as Aunt Lydia in 'A Handmaid's Tale, '" jabbed Wolf. You know, the accusation is that Michelle Wolf is behaving like a political comedian in a comedy room but instead, you know, in our living rooms because this is a televised thing.
Meyers was the comedian at the association's 2011 dinner during which both he and President Barack Obama harshly criticized Trump in their remarks.

But she saved her best jokes for White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders.
"And when you have Andrea Mitchell and Mika Brzezinski at MSNBC agreeing with what somebody at Fox says, just apologize and move on", Henry said.
But what has not gone down well with many is apart from Wolf targeting Sanders for her job as Trump's spokesperson but also her looks. I was there when President George W. Bush was satirized. So why is she "despicable"?
I think the main point out of it all is: If the objective of the event was to elevate and celebrate journalism, and to bring the country together, I think it really may have missed the mark.
All the same, countless journalists rallied behind Sanders, the same woman who spends her days lying to them.
