Suckabee Goes Down in Flames as a Proxy for Donald Trump at White House Correspondents’ Dinner; Snowflakes Liquefy

I didn’t know who comedian Michelle Wolf was before, but I know her now. And I think I love her.

At Saturday night’s annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, Wolf flamed the Trump administration and its flunkies (since Donald Trump is too much of a punk to take the jabs himself), and conservatives the world over found themselves drowning in melted snowflake juice and white tears.

Wolf, absolutely devoid of fucks, was unrelenting in her assessment of the disaster that is the Trump presidency, and opened with zingers like this: “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.”

She also skewered White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, whom Wolf called Aunt Lydia from The Handmaid’s Tale, but also mostly a liar.

I almost felt a wee bit sorry for Suckabee after Wolf said this: “What’s ‘Uncle Tom’ but for white women who disappoint other white women? Ah yes, Aunt Coulter,” a reference to conservative commentator Ann Coulter.

Well, damn.

As Barack Obama did in his final White House Correspondents’ Dinner, Wolf also had words for the press in its sycophantic support of Trump: “You guys love breaking news, and you did it, you broke it.”

In the aftermath, Politico reports, the “director of strategic communications Mercedes Schlapp and her husband, conservative activist Matt Schlapp, were among those who marched out of the ballroom at the Washington Hilton long before Wolf’s keynote routine was over.”

Twitter also exploded with conservative angry faces:

But the best yet was former White House press secretary Sean Spicer calling the event a “disgrace,” to which Wolf replied, “Thank you!”

Ana Navarro, my favorite conservative, pointed out the hypocrisy in all the hand-wringing:

The Final Days of Gawker Have Come

Shes not wrong and for anyone who’s listened to how harsh Wolf talks about things like Harvey Weinstein when doing guest appearance, it souldda been obvious she would swing for the fences

One of the most disgusting aspects of all this is watching worthless cunts like Joe&Mika pretend they weren’t the OG cheerleaders for our Orange Overlord.

Now that Don Lemon and Ava Navarro are getting racist flack in public, both suddenly realize unchecked nationalism might be a problem worthy of commentary.

90+% of cable news shows abdicated all responsibility in 2016 and it took a handful of months for them to be all “nah, nah, we were always against the obvious white supremacists”.

What a shock, these little trust fund babies (look it up, how many hosts/pundits come from humble backgrounds?) lose their shit when someone shits on their pathetic parade.

Scorn and mockery is all the people in that room deserved.
