Comedian Michelle Wolf Completely Decimates Trump In Response To Twitter Attack

President Trump is probably the worst person in the world when it comes to hearing criticism of himself. Once (pre-presidency), when he didn’t like an article she’d written about him for Vanity Fair, he poured a bottle of wine down a woman’s back. That’s the kind of stuff only the pettiest of the Real Housewives would ever dream of.

The WHCA announced yesterday that next year’s Correspondents’ Dinner would break the tradition of having a comedian host, opting for an author instead. That’s probably a reaction to the fact that Trump and the White House (and some of the correspondents) seriously can’t take jokes about themselves, and the dinner has long been a roast of the current administration.

Last year, comedian Michelle Wolf delivered a scorching set of spot-on jokes, including one about Sarah Sanders lying, and everyone freaked out. The right feigned outrage, as they’re wont to do, and everyone acted as though Wolf had gone too far just by joking about the truth.

When the WHCA announced their decision that they were having biographer Ron Chernow host instead of the customary comedian, Wolf called them “cowards.”

Trump himself hasn’t been in attendance at either of the dinners that have been held while he’s been in office (2017 was hosted by Larry Wilmore). But he was in attendance at dinner in 2011, when President Obama was still in office. Seth Meyers hosted, and he eviscerated Trump, who was in the audience, with lines like, “Trump has been saying he will run for president as a Republican, which is surprising, since I just assumed he was running as a joke.”

All of which is to say, it wasn’t a shock when Trump attacked Wolf on Twitter, calling her a “so-called comedian.”

[This isn’t the first time he’s attacked Wolf on Twitter, either, because of course, he had to say something after the dinner last year. He didn’t mention her by name, but he did call her “filthy.” And note how he still couldn’t let go of the Seth Meyers dinner, where he sat in complete silence while he and his character (or lack thereof) were dragged up and down creation.]

But Wolf, being the talented comedian she is, decimated Trump in her response to his direct attack.


That has to be, without a doubt, one of the sickest burns that Twitter’s ever seen.

Trump should definitely not mess with Michelle Wolf. He’s just digging his own grave.
