"Offended?" Don't make me fucking laugh.

I'll tell you, the political and media denizens of this great nation have no right to be "offended" by Michelle Wolf's routine at the White House Correspondent's Dinner. Especially since they're the very people who willfully imposed Trump and trumpism on our body politic for fame and fortune.

What Michelle Wolf did last night was that she held up a mirror to all of these people, so they could gaze upon the lies, crassness and ugliness within. Did they expect to be congratulated? Praised? Coddled? Fuck that, they're adults and they know what they all did. It's about time that they sat back, shut the fuck up and face the music for once in their pathetic lives.

And all of this happened just as Trump was continuing his shit show just directly north of where live, right here in Michigan. (Shit, I wish that I could have teleported everyone inside that gawd damned arena to Mars).

So what the fuck did these people expect after witnessing the last two years of bullshit? If anything Michelle Wolf let them off easy by not mentioning the fact that treason and the enabling of treason has not only put us into this mess, but it also prevents us from punishing the traitors.

There they were, sitting around in their fancy outfits, drinking and dining sociably, while this country is being undermined by a foreign power and its puppet in the Oval Office. THAT'S offensive.

So, no. They don't get to be offended because Michelle Wolf had the bravery and the temerity of putting into proper perspective the state of affairs that these very people aided and abetted by promoting Donald Jackass Trump.

The mere fact that Trump was a mere thirty minutes away from Flint last night and all he did last night was to tell lies and massage his own ego was a testament to the fact that everything that Michelle Wolf said had to be said. If it made them uncomfortable, they only have themselves to blame.

Bravo to Michelle Wolf, a real American hero.

I am so sick and tired of these coddled so called reporters

The right despises them and now they are dangerously on the brink of having all the middle and left despise them

Who will they have left then to feed their little tender egos?

I hate Maggie Habermann who just got a big turd laid on her head by dump last week and there she is.....the poor little snowflake

And on Joy Reid's show this morning, we have two reporters, EJ Dionne and Dana Milbank whining that we need to get rid of the comediennes and just go back to talking about great reporting..... (well maybe IF there was great reporting)

They all make me sick -they aid and abeit the totalitarian regime that has taken over this country

Unless we begin to get REAL HONEST and Brutal reporting of what is happening we might all have to kiss our asses goodbye

The country--indeed the world--is literally burning up because this administration says climate change is a hoax. And these pearl clutchers want us to act like everything is normal. Well excuse the fuck out of Michelle Wolf for screaming fire in a crowded theater that is actually on fire.

Edgy comic monologues are what draws attention to the WHCD and the awards given there. It is absolutely good for the WHCD and for the First Amendment. If not for this attention, no one would ever know about the work & scholarships celebrated at that dinner.

24. NO DEMOCRAT should let these assholes shame Wolf or them into silence

Is the "smoky eye" comment the only thing she said about Huckabee's looks?

That isn't a comment about her physical attributes - it's about a STYLE OF MAKEUP.

The blogs talk about Meghan Markle's smoky eye effect all the time.

The Trumpsters are too obtuse to know that's a style, and that the REAL point was that Huckabee torches the truth to ashes on a daily basis.

I loved MW's response to Sean Spicer today. She's not backing down, nor should she.

Everyone who was uncomfortable should have been, because they got called out. This is much the same way the new lynching memorial in AL is making certain people uncomfortable. Unpleasant truths and all that.

Howard Fineman got it right. Wolf is a comedienne - she did her job.

The defenders of Sanders have issues of their own, probably stemming from guilt.

Wolf never mentioned anything about things beyond Sanders' control, any facial or body anomaly. She never mentioned Sanders' weight, shape or height. She didn't mention Sanders' haircut or mannerisms.

Wolf talked about her eye make-up.

I'm dumbfounded that Republicans and others are getting all upset over some tough jokes. OK, I'm not dumbfounded, but spare me the fake outrage GOP and allies.

Did Wolf call anybody Pocahontas? Did she call SHS "Miss Piggy" ? Did she say that Africa is filled with Shit Hole countries? Did she say that women without big breasts can't be 10s? Did she call out Megyn Kelly for having blood coming out of her "wherever"? Did she go up to any women in the media and grab them by their private parts? Or, even start kissing them without asking?

indignation for something else. I saw Mika this morning who I generally like and Andrea Mitchell and have two words for them “SHUT UP”. And for any Dems who were offended kindly step aside and let us do iur work. There is no room for “Snowflakes” in the Dem party any more. This is survival and the weak and wounded will only slow us down. Only the strong and determined will break the scourge that is the Republican Party.

56. Truth isn't often pretty. Comedy is often cruel. Roasts can get hot...

I blame the media for a lot (not all) of the bs that came down on us during the campaigning.
Respect for them was battered by their own embracing of Reality Show mentality and ratings.

There is, beyond the disgustingly enabled Stupid who dwell so brainlessly in our country, real blame for some seriously unprofessional journalism, cowardice and outrageous enabling done by the media that helped put a lunatic Cretin and his immoral political party in office. A party that continues to destroy and undermine decency.

They should be fiercely held accountable for their part.

I finally watched a clip of Michelle Wolf’s roasting of everyone, including herself.

I naturally tend to cringe at pointed comedic attacks, but truth can be ugly. I did cringe, but wasn’t offended...and back Wolf up. And it certainly needs said especially in the face of the pathological lying that has become the norm.
