Full disclosure: I hate roasts of any kind.
White House Correspondents’ Dinner gut-busting pasquinade by jokester Michelle Wolf makes it difficult to refrain from being as despicable as she was.
First, some of her jokes:
“Of course, Trump isn’t here…. I would drag him here myself, but it turns out the president of the United States is the one p***y you’re not allowed to grab.”
“I know there’s a lot of people who want me to talk about Russia and Putin and collusion, but I’m not gonna do that because there’s a lot of liberal media here, and I’ve never wanted to know what any of you look like when you orgasm. Except for you, Jake Tapper.”
“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 Aunt Huckabee Sanders? What’s Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women?”
She has a First Amendment right to be nasty, brutish, and vulgar, but that doesn’t mean doing so is right. I guess if you call it a “joke,” it’s not bullying. Last night was a teachable moment for all those kids who take pleasure in making nasty sport of others. Wolf taught them that it’s okay to be thoughtless, mean-spirited, and distasteful as long as you’re part of the cool crowd–you know, the crowd that’s on the “right side of history,” like the sanctimonious Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, and David Letterman.
Oh, and here’s another of her rib-ticklers, this one on abortion–a topic that’s always good for a laugh:
“Don’t knock it till you try it. And when you do try it, really knock it, you gotta get that baby out of there.”
One tidbit of info about Wolf from CNN editor-at-large Chris Cilizza: “Wolf knew exactly what she was doing…. Did the average person know who Wolf was before Saturday night?… She is the talk of every Sunday talk show…. On a related note, her Netflix series, ‘The Break with Michelle Wolf’–comes on May 27.”
Vulgar, mean, divisive, self-serving, and calculating. Wolf should go into politics–on the cool kids’ team.

Listen to this article read by Laurie:
Worldview has never been so important than it is today! The contemporary culture is shaping the next generation’s understanding of faith far more than their faith is shaping their understanding of culture. The annual IFI Worldview Conference is a phenomenal opportunity to reverse that trend.
This year we are excited to have well-know apologist John Stonestreet leading our session. Please join us this Saturday, May 5th at Medinah Baptist Church. Mr. Stonestreet is s a dynamic speaker and the award-winning author of “Making Sense of Your World” and his newest offer: “A Practical Guide to Culture.”
