The 2018 White House Correspondents’ Dinner can, again, be categorized as an example of what not to do as far as a professional dinner event is concerned.
The White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA), again, chose to invite a “comedian” (Michelle Wolf), (and I am using the term “comedian” very loosely here) who was extremely rude and nowhere near being funny.
Let me paint you the picture of what happened there that night (as I am sure you did not watch this event).
So, we’re at this big fancy, Washington D.C., dinner.
All of the correspondents that cover the White House are there, along with their guests.
We also had The White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders there, who was invited by the White House Correspondents’ Association to be at this dinner, sitting up on stage, as a guest of honor.
The “comedian” gets up to speak when prompted, (Imagine a 2-year old trying to play a violin and you’ll have an idea of what her voice sounded like!) and she proceeds to berate and insult a person they invited to be there (Sarah Huckabee Sanders)! The insults didn’t stop there, however. Anybody and everybody in the Trump administration was fair game.
Her remarks were so inappropriate that a number of people actually got up and left the dinner.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders chose to be a good sport about the whole thing (although no one could blame her if she wasn’t) and sit through all of the personal attacks. As usual, she displayed a level of professionalism and courage that many of these “correspondents” can only dream of. Not to mention the sad “comedian” making the remarks.
Wolf actually mocked the WHCA (the people who hired her) during her speech when she said, “You should’ve done more research before you (asked) me to do this.” (Yes Michelle, the Whist House correspondents should do more research in general!)
All you really need to know about her truly unfunny comments is that they drew high praise from Kathy Griffin and Amy Schumer on social media. They both thought she was “great,” and “hilarious.”
I feel pretty confident when I say that Michelle Wolf, Kathy Griffin, Amy Schumer, and any of the other people who felt this was acceptable, were probably bullies growing up (and still are).
It’s a shame that the liberals keep lowering the bar when it comes to following the law, enforcing the law, and social behavior in general. And then they have the gall to look down their noses at all of us “deplorables.”
Their level of confusion is really quite impressive.
