Not everyone was laughing at Michelle Wolf's White House Correspondents' Dinner performance

Not everyone was laughing at Michelle Wolf's White House Correspondents' Dinner performance

"I have an enormous amount of respect for Margaret [Talev] and what she does at the White House Correspondents' Association", said Scaramucci on CNN's Reliable Sources.

Wolf responded by saying she wasn't poking at Sanders' appearance. "But she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a flawless smokey eye", Wolf joked about Sanders.

Trump, who didn't attend the gala for the second straight year, decided instead to hold a campaign-style rally with supporters in Washington, Mich., which he contrasted with the WHCD in a tweet early Sunday.

The television pictures showing President Donald Trump at a MI rally asking why he would want to be in a room full of people that hate him and Wolf's diatribes may have reinforced the narrative that elite journalists are out of touch.

The reviews are in: President Donald Trump is giving a thumbs-down to the comedian who roasted his chief spokeswoman at the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner.

And of course, the president weighed in on Wolf's set from his Twitter account on Sunday morning.

President Trump's Favorite Coons Diamond & Silk Deliver False Statements Under Oath
They now have almost 150,000 subscribers on YouTube and several of their videos have been viewed over a million times each. Diamond and Silk appear with Donald Trump at a campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa on January 28, 2016.

Wolf also went after Sanders for her willingness to continue to lie on behalf of Donald Trump. Talking about Trump's ties to Russia, she said it was "kinda insane that the Trump campaign was in contact with Russian when the Hillary campaign wasn't even in contact with MI".

Michelle Wolf's performance didn't have everyone laughing when it came to Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I have to say I'm a little star-struck. To her credit NBC's Andrea Mitchell tweeted that an apology was owed Sanders and said that Wolf was "the worst" since Don Imus had mocked the Clintons at a previous White House Correspondents Dinner. "We in the media have constantly for years been accused of being too cosy with power - during the Bush years, during the Obama years".

President Trump stayed far away from the disaster of a White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday evening (another brilliant chess move on his part).

"Every time Sarah steps up to the podium I get excited because I'm not really sure what we're going to get", she continued. Her speech hit everyone from Paul Ryan to Mike Pence and a notably absent President Trump, but it was her comments about White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that elicited uncomfortable silence in the room and immediate ire on social media.

The dinner also features the presentation of journalism awards. Among the non-Washington-based attendees were comedians Jordan Klepper of Comedy Central's The Opposition and Kathy Griffin, who is resurrecting her career after the fallout from her photoshoot with a bloodied replica of Trump's severed head. "I don't think the comedian speaks for the press corps". "So, I guess like father, like daughter".

"Just a reminder to everyone, I'm here to make jokes, I have no agenda, I'm not trying to get anything accomplished, so everyone that's here from Congress you should feel right at home". This year, journalists from CNN, The New York Times, Reuters, and The Washington Post received various awards for journalistic excellence, news coverage on deadline, and excellence in coverage of subjects of significant national or local importance.
