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.

BEHAR GOES NUCLEAR: Joy Says There’s NO DIFFERENCE Between Trump, Assad, Kim
Comedian Joy Behar found herself in hot-water Thursday after she wildly claimed there was no clear “moral” difference between President Trump, Kim Jong Un, and Bashar al-Assad; saying she sees Trump as “provoking war” across the globe.
“We’ve gotten to the point in this world now where we have to rely on the sanity of Kim Jong Un and [Vladimir] Putin over the President of the United States,” said Behar.
“Do you think Kim Jong Un is less moral than Trump? Do you?” Behar asked co-host Meghan McCain.
“It’s hard for me to sit here with moral relativism about many things with Trump,” McCain fired-back. “If you think that Kim Jong Un, Vladimir Putin, and Bashar al-Assad, and President Trump are the exact same thing, it’s when you lose all arguments with me in every way.”
“What I’m saying is that the two of them are backing off of war and Trump is provoking war, that’s what I see,” said Behar.

CANNABIS NEWS NETWORK: Anderson Cooper SHOCKED by Weed-Fueled Broadcast
CNN anchor Anderson Cooper was reportedly stunned by his network’s weed-fueled New Year’s Eve coverage, telling a late-night comedian that he was just as “surprised as anybody else” over the outlet’s risqué broadcast, reports Fox News.
Cooper was speaking with “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert when he was asked to comment on his network’s infamous New Year’s Eve show, featuring intoxicated anchors, drunk hosts, and fellow journalist Randi Kaye reporting from a marijuana-themed party.
“Do you still have a contact high from Randi Kaye?” asked Colbert.
“It’s legal in Colorado… she did not smoke, obviously. She was just in the environment,” said Cooper.
“The whole thing surprised me as much as anybody else, I gotta tell you,” he added.
CNN found itself in hot-water New Year’s Day as viewers and readers complained the network took its broadcast too far, saying the cable news outlet was attempting to “trademark the debauchery.”
“CNN is trying to trademark the debauchery as its brand for New Year’s Eve coverage. I mean that quite seriously,” said Media Research Center President Brent Bozell. “So this year they’re doing pot and getting stoned.”
