The liberals’ War on Women kicked into high gear at the 2018 White House Correspondents Dinner, when D-lister Michelle Wolf tore into WH press secretary Sarah Sanders in a series of sexist, cringe-worthy attacks disguised as “comedy.”
Wolf gleefully mocked Sanders’ appearance and job performance in nasty jabs that even some liberals thought crossed the line. “I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful,” Wolf said. “She burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye. Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies. It’s probably lies.”
Wolf also snarked: “I’m a little starstruck. I love you as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid’s Tale.”
She continued: “I’m never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee Sanders. 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?”
Wolf also trashed the other women in the Trump Administration, including senior adviser Kellyanne Conway, whose name she mocked: “Man, she has the perfect last name for what she does: Conway.”
Ivanka Trump wasn’t spared, either. Wolf said:”She was supposed to be an advocate for women. But it turns out, she’s about as helpful to women as an empty box of tampons.”
As BizPac Review previously reported, few people had ever heard of Michelle Wolf until recently, when she made headlines for mocking Sarah Sanders‘ decision to attend the White House Correspondents Dinner by saying, “Sarah finally gets to go to prom!”

Here are some highlights (or lowlights, as it were) from Wolf’s WHCD stand-up routine, which was stale and not funny. You need new material, Michelle! We’ve heard all these jokes on CNN and MSNBC.
- Like a porn star says when she’s about to have sex with a Trump, ‘Let’s get this over with.’
- All [Kellyanne Conway] does is lie. If you don’t give her a platform, she has nowhere to lie. It’s like that old saying, if a tree falls in the woods, how do we get Kellyanne under that tree?
- I did have a lot of jokes about cabinet members, but I had to scrap all of those because everyone has been fired. You guys have gone through cabinet members quicker than Starbucks throws out black people.
- Tonight, I’m going to try to make fun of the president in a new way, in a way that I really think will get him. Mr. President, I don’t think you’re very rich. Like, I think you might be rich in Idaho, but in New York you’re doing fine.
- As much as some of you might want me to, it’s 2018 and I’m a woman, so you cannot shut me up — unless you have Michael Cohen wire me $130,000.
To their credit, Sarah Sanders and Kellyanne Conway were troopers who took the insults in stride. However, many on Twitter weren’t so gracious, slamming Wolf for her tasteless “comedy.”
“Tonight’s #WHCD was a disgrace,” said former WH press secretary Sean Spicer.

Politico reporter Kyle Cheney tweeted: “Michelle Wolf didn’t fail just because she was (spectacularly) one-sided. It was because she was unnecessarily cruel on a night the WHCA was trying to showcase decency and purpose.”

Undermined an otherwise meaningful night.

Conservative author Jack Posobiec observed: “I was in the room. Sick to watch so many “journalists” laugh along as Wolf attacked Sarah Sanders. Sarah showed courage by keeping her cool.”

Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra quipped: “The saddest part of the #WHCD is that whoever organized it thought Michelle Wolf was a comedian.”

Sarah Sanders was prescient when she made this remark in early-April: “Democrats love to talk about the ‘War on Women.’ The only ‘War on Women’ that I see is the one that’s being waged against every woman and every female that is close to this president.”

Check out these photos from the 2018 White House Correspondents Dinner. President Trump made the right decision to boycott this year. And he should do the same next year based on how poorly his staff was treated.
