The President of the White House Correspondents Association apologized to Presidential staffers and the public following this weekend’s ‘Dirty Dinner,’ saying the event was meant to “unify” but the comedian’s “monologue was not in the spirit” of the evening.
WHC President Margaret Talev issued her official response after politicians and media pundits on both sides of the aisle slammed comedian Michelle Wolf’s offensive and inappropriate roast; slamming senior Trump aides as the press watched in horror.
“Last night’s program was meant to offer a unifying message about our common commitment to a vigorous and free press while honoring civility, great reporting and scholarship winners, not to divide people,” Talev said.
“Unfortunately, the entertainer’s monologue was not in the spirit of the mission,” she added.
President Trump weighed-in on the disastrous event on social media over the weekend, saying the evening was an “embarrassment to everyone associated with it.”
The White House Correspondents’ Dinner was a failure last year, but this year was an embarrassment to everyone associated with it. The filthy “comedian” totally bombed (couldn’t even deliver her lines-much like the Seth Meyers weak performance). Put Dinner to rest, or start over!

CRYIN’ WOLFF: ‘Fire and Fury’ Author FAKES TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES on LIVE TV
“Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff flat-out refused to answer questions surrounding his baseless allegations that President Trump was having an affair inside the White House; going so far as to fake technical difficulties when asked about his bogus assertion.
Wolff was speaking with an Australian morning news program when he was pressed on wild claims he’s made about the Commander-in-Chief in the aftermath of his book’s publication.
“You said during a TV interview just last month that you’re absolutely sure that Donald Trump is currently having an affair while President behind the back of the First Lady. Just last week you back-flipped,” said the ‘Today’ host. “Do you owe the President and the First Lady an apology?”
“I can’t hear you. I’m not getting anything. I’m not getting anything,” said Wolff, after experiencing absolutely no technical problems during the previous five minutes of conversation.
“We were hearing each other well just before,” fired-back the anchor. “I guess the interview is over.”
Watch Wolff dodge the question above.
X RATED AFFAIR: Comic Takes DC Dinner from the SWAMP to the GUTTER
The liberal comedian at the center of this year’s annual White House Correspondents’ Press Dinner took the star-studded event from swamp straight to the gutter this weekend; slamming senior Trump officials and making wildly inappropriate jokes as the press watched in stone-cold silence.
Left-wing comic Michelle Wolf unloaded on members of the President’s cabinet -many of whom were in attendance- during the ceremony held in “honor of the First Amendment” and journalists across the country.
“I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful,” Wolf said, referencing White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “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.”
“I’m never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” the comedian continued. “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?”
Even the New York Times Maggie Haberman defended Sanders, saying she acted “impressively” by not walking-out of the event mid-roast.
That @PressSec sat and absorbed intense criticism of her physical appearance, her job performance, and so forth, instead of walking out, on national television, was impressive.
