We don’t know what was on the menu at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, but Comedian Michelle Wolfe took the podium gave the entire Trump administration a good roast.
As expected, she went in on Trump and his affair with porn star Stormy Daniels — but what seems to have caused the most outrage were her jokes about press secretary Sarah Huckabee.
Hey mags! All these jokes were about her despicable behavior. Sounds like you have some thoughts about her looks though? ? https://t.co/JRzzvhBuey

With Sarah sitting at a table to her left, Michelle addressed:
“We are graced with Sarah’s presence tonight. I have to say I’m a little star-struck. I love you as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid’s Tale. Mike Pence, if you haven’t seen it, you would love it.”
If you didn’t catch the reference, Aunt Lydia is a fearsome character from the dystopian Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale who re-educates women into subjugation and enforces strict punishment on them.
Michelle wasn’t finished.
“Every time Sarah steps up to the podium, I get excited, because I’m not really sure what we’re going to get — you know, a press briefing, a bunch of lies or divided into softball teams. “It’s shirts and skins, and this time don’t be such a little bitch, Jim Acosta!”
I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful. She burns facts, and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye. Like maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies. It’s probably lies.
And I’m never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee Sanders, you know? Is it Sarah Sanders, is it Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is it Cousin Huckabee, is it Auntie Huckabee Sanders? Like, what’s Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women? Oh, I know. Aunt Coulter.”
According to reports, Michelle went so hard on Sarah and other republicans that some people left the room.
The WHCD was supposed to celebrate the 1st Amendment. Instead they celebrated bullying, vulgarity, and hate. They got all dressed up so they would look nicer when they had a hired gun savagely attack their guests. Do they really wonder why America has no respect for them? Sad!
