Colbert's 'Our Cartoon President' Popped By The White House Correspondents' Dinner

Wolf went after Trump, but she blasted Sanders who often looked uncomfortable during the dinner.

She also leveled a cringe-worthy attack on Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, who was sitting on the dais just steps away from Wolf. I don't know how she did it. Wolf's name is trending all over social media just a few weeks before the launch of her new Netflix show.

"I'm never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee Sanders".

Historically, the annual dinner is a night where the white house press corps and the administration come together to roast the president and to acknowledge the important relationship between the White House and the Fourth Estate. "I appreciated Sarah Sanders for joining us at the head of the table and her grace through the program". But she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a flawless smokey eye. "We in the media have constantly for years been accused of being too cosy with power - during the Bush years, during the Obama years.

This dinner is for journalists".

His explanation of the word "covfefe" in a tweet by Mr Trump sparked incredulity.

Wolf compared Sanders to fictional character Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid's Tale, a book and television show about a dystopian future in which a far-right political movement enslaves most women for breeding purposes.

"And then I'm supposed to ..." he continued, faking an exaggerated smile. "He gets it. When he sees that African-American unemployment is the lowest in history - you know, people are watching".

"If you don't smile, they say, 'He was bad, he couldn't take it.' And if you do smile, they'll say, 'What was he smiling about?'"

At this year's dinner, Wolf, an alumna of the Daily Show, delivered an at-times raunchy, sometimes amusing, and definitely controversial roast of the president, his staff, the political press, and more, provoking an outpouring of both support and outrage from across the internet. "Like, what's Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women?" Naturally, torches and pitchforks were out for Wolf making fun of Sarah Huckabee Sanders' lies and smokey eyes, because you have to have government clearance to mock someone the White House Correspondents' Dinner. "Every hour, it's Trump, Russia, Hillary and a panel of four people who remind you why you don't go home for Thanksgiving".

Wolf wrapped up her speech by accusing the news media of benefiting from the Trump administration.

Clinton later did a partial rollback, said she had been "grossly generalistic" and regretted saying the label fit "half" of Trump's supporters. "You helped create this monster and now you are profiting from him".

Many conservative voices criticized Wolf's routine, including former press secretary Sean Spicer ("a disgrace"), Fox News anchor Abby Huntsman, and President Trump himself ("a very big, boring bust").
