White House Correspondents' Association knew what it was getting with Michelle Wolf

"She burns facts then uses that ash to create the ideal smokey eye".

It is not clear whether Eric Trump liked the tweets roasting Huckabee Sanders intentionally, given he also appeared to back his father for skipping the event. "It's probably lies", Wolf said.

Donald Trump, who spent Saturday in MI holding a rally where he spewed his usual racist, xenophobic lies to the joy of his stalwart followers, had several paroxysms of rage on Twitter ("Put Dinner to rest, or start over!").

Wolf fielded widespread backlash after she repeatedly insulted White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.

I don't think I can fall asleep tonight until I say a few things publicly.

"I knew what I was doing going in", she told NPR.

If we were at a club - or if this were part of her TV show - Wolf's schtick would not be remarkable.

Conservative journalist Mika Brzezinski tweeted, "Watching a wife and mother be humiliated on national television for her looks is deplorable". You guys love breaking news, and you did it. President Reagan is one of the most revered modern presidents, and as Brian Stelter at CNN wrote, "The last president to miss the correspondents' dinner was Ronald Reagan in 1981 - because he was recovering from an assassination attempt".

That said, Wolf didn't expect the routine to be quite so divisive - but she doesn't mind that it was. "I would say if this is about celebrating the media, she wasn't there to celebrate the media".

Sanders takes to the White House podium day after day to lie to the American people to further the agenda of her megalomaniac boss.

Indeed, WHCA president Margaret Talev delivered wonderful remarks about her late father who fled Communism in Bulgaria to immigrate to this country; the WHCA's scholarships and the WHCA awards to top White House reporters.

Wolf also compared Sanders to the cruel and surly Aunt Lydia character (played by Ann Dowd) from the Hulu series The Handmaid's Tale.

Of course, the real subtext is that the people rallying to defend Sanders by reading accusations of unattractiveness into jokes about deceitfulness, female misogyny, and intimidation are actually showing that they themselves think she is unattractive, or else why would this misinterpretation have even occurred to them?

Sarah Sanders Huckabee was stony-faced as she was mocked by Wolf.

"I just want people to be like, 'Those were amusing jokes, '" she told CBS News ahead of the dinner. "And I don't want the cause of unity to be undercut". Second, Michelle Wolf thought it was amusing comparing me to Aunt Lydia from the Handmaid's Tale, but I'm proud to be associated with that hard-working and fearless woman.

The days of the comedian hosting the event going "table by table pointing at people and making fun of them" are over, she said.
