Trump's Twitter targets for today, the WHCD and Michelle Wolf.


I would just first like to point out that if Trump thinks he is hurting Michelle Wolf's career in any way by going after her on Twitter he is dead wrong.

She is launching a new show on Netflix, and she has just gone from a comedian that only a few people know about, to a national figure who is the subject of tweets by the president of the United States.

There is no way this hurts her professionally.

And that goes for the attacks by the conservatives, and some self identified "liberals," as well.

Which by the way are completely without merit.

Courtesy of Vulture:

As soon as Michelle Wolf finished delivering her blistering White House Correspondents’ Dinner roast of the Trump administration and the members of the press that cover it, she was, not surprisingly, criticized for much of what she said. Oddly, however, a lot of that criticism zeroed in on something that Michelle Wolf did not actually say: a joke about Sarah Huckabee Sanders’s appearance.

The two jokes that seemed to irk critics were her Handmaid’s Tale dig — “I have to say I’m a little starstruck. I love you as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid’s Tale” — and the aforementioned line about Sanders’s smoky eye, which went like this: “I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful. She burns facts, and then she uses the ash to create a perfect smoky eye. Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies. It’s probably lies.”

Somehow this was misconstrued to be an attack on Huckabee Sander's appearance, which it clearly was not.

In stead it was an attack on her honesty, which, let's face it, was more than appropriate.

However both conservatives and some in the media spouted their faux outrage all over Twitter.
And of course Mika Brzezinski also had to give her two cents.
All of this seemed to puzzle Michelle Wolf who responded with this:
Exactly.

Look if you are a conservative then misrepresenting the facts and participating in faux outrage is kinda what you do.

But if you are supposed to be a "journalist" of some kind you are expected to adhere to the facts, and there were several media types who failed to meet that expectation.

And like I said all of this does nothing but help Michelle Wolf's career, and ensure that when her Netflix show drops on May 27 that it will have a lot more folks tuned in.

So keep it up conservatives (And Mika Brzezinski) cause all it does is put money in her pockets.

    I'd like to ask Mika Brzezinski what being a wife and mother has to do with anything. Do single, childfree women deserve to be mocked? For your information, Hillary Clinton has been a wife and mother for over thirty years and yet you've never passed up a chance to pile on to the hate that Hillary has graciously borne over the decades. Fuck you!

    OT? Bet NOT Megyn:
    “It’s good to remind people that in this #MeToo movement, you have this umbrella of allegations that fall within it,” NBC correspondent Stephanie Gosk told Kelly. “And they go everywhere from first degree rape all the way to the allegations. And it’s a reminder for everyone, as you sit here and try to go through all of this and come up with your own opinion on it, each case is different and should be considered on a case by case basis.”

    Kelly suggested that Clinton was partially to blame because she said that all women accusers should be believed except those who accused her husband of sexual misconduct.

    “That’s the thing,” Kelly explained. “You know, back during the presidential race, Hillary Clinton came out and said, I believe every accuser should be believed — like, except those accusing her husband.”

    The quip earned Kelly a mix of laughter and groans from the audience."

    Journalists Push Back On Correspondents’ Association’s Response To Michelle Wolf

    Some say the White House Correspondents’ Association president’s criticism of the comedian failed to recognize what the First Amendment is all about.

    Many in the media complained that Talev’s statement contradicts press freedom, and pointed out that Wolf’s performance took equal-opportunity jabs at White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, among others. They also noted that Talev’s disassociation from the comedian she said she picked herself for the performance ― who arguably did what she was hired to do ― questions the whole point of the White House Correspondents’ dinner:

    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/journalists-rebuke-of-michelle-wolf-doesnt-celebrate-press-freedom_us_5ae70b2fe4b02baed1bc4dd8

    'Every year, I see @whca attendees tweeting about how the dinner is about celebrating the First Amendment. That is sanctimonious enough. But this statement reveals anew what nonsense that is. This is performative rubbish, and I hope that next year’s comedian ridicules them for it.'

      'Dear Margaret Talev: You said you hired Wolf because she "was provocative and had a message." Well, she was provocative and she did have a message and she delivered! Now, what's your problem?'

      'Ms. Talev must have been shocked that the speaker called out her constituents as (partly) responsible for the problem. Ms. Wolf called out the media explicitly for condoning and covering POTUS' bad behavior in the name of ratings.

      Then she closed the evening with "Flint does still not have clean water".

      That story is important because people are being sickened and injured by an insensitive government... but it just doesn't bring in the ratings, so it does not get covered.

      #WHCAComplicit

      Michelle - you did not cross the line. You shone the light where others would not.'

      '"...arguably did what she was hired to do..."

      "Arguably"???? Really? She absolutely did what she was hired to do. There's no way anyone can convince me that the WHCA hired Wolf knowing NOTHING about her act.
      Why on Earth would any apology be needed when we have a "President" who routinely insults, mocks, falsely accuses and denigrates people for their looks, heritage, names and anything else he can find to use to attack someone? Shame on Margaret Talev.'

      'The real fly in this ointment is that even before Michelle was invited the people who did the inviting knew her schtick. At the correspondent’s dinner she did her thing, exactly what everyone expected. Afterward, a few people put on their wings and halos and criticized the exact thing they were craving.'

      'Michelle held up a mirror to the truth ... and if the Trump administration thinks the truth in an insult, then they should change their behavior.'

    Seth Meyers Recalls The Correspondents’ Dinner When He Torched Trump

    Talk show host Seth Meyers on Monday posted a sardonic response to President Donald Trump’s attack on this year’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner that included a mention of Meyers’ 2011 performance at the gathering — which some say helped stir Trump’s presidential ambitions.

    In a tweet on Sunday, Trump criticized the controversial comic routine by the entertainer at Saturday’s dinner, Michelle Wolf, and called it even worse than Meyers’ “weak performance.” Meyers cheekily responded by commemorating the “anniversary.”

    "The way the press corps treats the brilliant comedians it hires is an old joke by now, and we all know the punch lines. In 2016, when Larry Wilmore tore into the cable news industry’s history of racist coverage and greeted President Obama in a manner some took offense to, he was deemed to have gone “too far.” In 2006, Steven Colbert mercilessly mocked President George W. Bush from just feet away. Yet that now legendary performance was very poorly received at the time.

    I went back to watch the video again: The assembled press squirms in their seats, barely laughing as Mr. Colbert drops bomb after bomb of brilliant satire. The reviews that followed were just as scathing as those Ms. Wolf received: The Washington Post’s Richard Cohen wrote that Mr. Colbert was “not funny” and “rude”; the New York Observer’s Chris Lehmann said that his “timing was dreadfully off”; Representative Steny H. Hoyer said that the comedian had “crossed the line.” In response, the next year the White House Correspondents’ Association booked the celebrity impressionist and sexagenarian Rich Little, who did Johnny Carson impressions while President Bush happily smiled. So much for satire."

    It is confounding to me how people have piled on Michele Wolff that she made fun of Sarah Sanders “looks”. Since a smoky eye is a style of makeup I wonder if these reactions are truly from people who judge Sarah’s style choice negatively.

    Why are these people avoiding the topic that Wolff made fun of how much she lies? Wolfe burned Sanders on that. If Sanders is so religious, offended by the crude jokes why work for a thrice married leacherous man? She chose the prominent job for the pussy grabber.
