The Hill, a left of center website in Washington DC, announced today it is dropping out of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner until changes are made.
The White House Correspondents’s Dinner was held last night in Washington DC.
President Trump skipped the event again this year and held a rally in Washington, Michigan instead.
The WHCD comedian came with an agenda this year to hurl vile insults at President Trump and his administration.
The worst part came when this “comedian” hurled tasteless insults at White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the far left audience squealed in delight.
Michelle Wolf mocked Sarah Sanders as Aunt Lydia in the Handmaiden’s Tale, a bull-dyke gym teacher and attacked Sanders over her ‘smoky eye’ look. Wolf concluded with the racist, sexist attack in which she called Sanders a traitor to ‘white women.’
Here is the far left entertainer abusing Sarah Huckabee Sanders to the delight of the far left mob.
— CBS called this awful abuse of the female official a “jab.”
Here is their full statement, via Mediaite:
“We recall fondly how past dinners were tremendous spectacles of dignity that were enjoyed by all.
Comedians headlining those dinners were sharp and made fun of both the media and the Commander-in-Chief in a way that could induce laughs while not being so offensive and vulgar that C-SPAN actually cut off its radio broadcast, as was the case this year for the first time ever.
The kind of jokes told by this year’s headliner, Michelle Wolf, were out of line for an event that’s supposed to be fun – and fair.
Based on what Americans witnessed on national television at Saturday night’s dinner, a once-fine evening celebrating the strong, free press the WHCA speaks of has turned into an angry display and ad-hominem attacks.
A solid majority of journalists from the left and right have condemned this year’s comedian and rightly so.
The association made apologies, albeit not to the press secretary, only after the pressure compelled it to happen.
We hope the dinner can get back to talking about the importance of the Fourth Estate without the kind of ugly sideshow that completely overshadowed the event this year.”
