Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Press Secretary, has taken the role of being the most classy when it comes to responding to the jokes told by Michelle Wolf that targeted Sanders in an unprecedented incident during the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Wen asked on Fox & Friends about the icky jokes told by Wolf, directed at Sanders, she just replied that the whole evening says a lot more about Wolf than it does about Sanders.
The Daily Caller reported how Sarah Sanders responded respectfully and with kindness towards Wolf: “White House press secretary Sarah Sanders turned the other cheek on “Fox & Friends” Thursday and responded to criticism from comedian Michelle Wolf by wishing her a happy life.
“Look, I think that evening says a whole lot more about her than it does about me,” Sanders said of the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner on Saturday.
“The people that were my friends before that evening are my friends today and I’m going to continue doing the job that I came here to do every single day,” she said. “I’m very proud of the fact that I work in this administration for this president and we’re going to keep pushing forward and doing everything we can to make America better.”

Sarah, you are the best of the best.

Wolf viciously targeted Sanders over her looks and also her job performance.
“Every time Sarah steps up to the podium, I get excited. I’m not really sure what we’re going to get, you know? A press briefing, a bunch of lies or divided into softball teams,” Wolf said.
“I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful,” Wolf added. “But she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye. Like maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies.”
The President had his own choice words for the perturbed comedian after her lackluster performance:
The White House Correspondents’ Dinner was a failure last year, but this year was an embarrassment to everyone associated with it. The filthy “comedian” totally bombed (couldn’t even deliver her lines-much like the Seth Meyers weak performance). Put Dinner to rest, or start over!

To which the Wolf defended herself with:
Hey mags! All these jokes were about her despicable behavior. Sounds like you have some thoughts about her looks though? 😘 https://t.co/JRzzvhBuey

Why are you guys making this about Sarah’s looks? I said she burns facts and uses the ash to create a *perfect* smoky eye. I complimented her eye makeup and her ingenuity of materials. https://t.co/slII9TYdYx

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner was reportedly a mess from start to finish and here are some highlights:
Wolf’s first offensive remark referred to Trump’s absence at the event. “I would drag him here myself, but it turns out that the President of the United States is the one p-ssy you’re not allowed to grab.”
Then the comedian went after Sarah Huckabee Sanders, “I loved you as Aunt Lydia in ‘A Handmaid’s Tale.’”
Of course, she couldn’t stop short of attacking VP Pence either, “He thinks abortion is murder. Which first of all don’t know it till you try it. And when you do try it, really knock it. You gotta get that baby out of there.”
Last but not least, what liberal media function is complete without attacking the President’s daughter who happens to be Jewish, “Ivanka, she was supposed to be an advocate for women, but she’s about as helpful to women as an empty box of tampons.”
Here is more on this outrageous display of disrespect and bullying by Wolfe via Indie Wire: “If anyone was tuning in to this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner for some simple jokes about the President, they got a lot more than they bargained for.
Michelle Wolf started off her hosting gig by fast-forwarding through the kinds of jokes that usually pepper a White House Correspondents’ Dinner set, even skipping over the customary C-SPAN nod that the channel itself even highlighted earlier in the day.
Instead, the rest of her jokes, delivered to the gathered crowd at the Washington Hilton Hotel in Washington, DC, played no favorites and left no one exempt. Even after the White House Correspondents’ Association went out of its way to thank Trump Administration officials for attending, Wolf wasted no time going after former and current officials both in the room and elsewhere.
The jabs ranged from the tame (“Mike Pence is the kind of guy who brushes his teeth and drinks orange juice and thinks, ‘Mmmmm…’”) to the scathing, including a barrage against the White House’s representative on the dais, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders (“I love you as Aunt Lydia on ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’”). It was hard not to watch that salvo against someone sitting at arm’s length away and not think of Stephen Colbert’s infamous 2006 performance, which deflated the room in a similar way. (Sitting next to Sanders, ABC News’ Jonathan Karl looked decidedly unamused.)
Maybe by design, not all of Wolf’s jokes went over well with the audience. A “Match Game”-style call and response section separated the willing participants from the visibly annoyed. A joke about wanting Kellyanne Conway trapped under a tree seemed to make more than a few in the audience nervous. And specific jabs at Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC didn’t leave quite the same soft-punch-in-the-shoulder feeling the usual gags have in the past.
Not all the jokes with an unexpected aim were as piercing as those directed at Conway, Sanders, or Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough (“It’s like when a MeToo works out”). When cycling through jokes intended for the colleagues of people in the room, Wolf said, “Watching Rachel Maddow is like going to Target: You went in for milk and you came out with shampoo, candles, and the entire history of the Byzantine Empire.”
It’s the second consecutive year that the President has chosen not to attend the event, but like Hasan Minhaj did last year, Wolf had her share of Trump material to make up for it. But like her closing statement that “Flint still doesn’t have clean water,” her approach was more to say things that a WHCD host isn’t usually expected to say.
“People call Trump names all the time, and look I could call Trump a racist or misogynist or xenophobic or unstable or incompetent or impotent, but he’s heard all of those and he doesn’t care,” Wolf said in her setup for the “How broke is he?” section.
On a Democrat’s chances in the upcoming 2018 midterms: “You’re somehow going to lose by 12 points to a guy named Jeff Pedophile Nazi Doctor.”
The undercurrents of support for the political/cable-news press that went through Minhaj’s monologue at last year’s event were largely absent this year, especially when Wolf finished off her closing remarks.
“You helped create this monster and now you’re profiting off of him. And if you’re gonna profit off of Trump, you should at least give him some money because he doesn’t have any,” Wolf said.
In contrast to last year’s opening, which used archival footage to highlight the history of tumultuous presidential/press corps relationships, the 2018 version looked to some help from the inside baseball of a WHCD-specific “Our Cartoon President” segment and a painfully awkward intro from outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan.”
What is your opinion of Sarah’s response to Wolf? Was it better for her to respond politely and brush it off? Or did you want her to respond with equally scathing remarks? What would you say to Michelle Wolf?

First Video of Latest Trump Star Vandal Swinging Pickaxe Shows What Happened – Spread Like Wildfire
TMZ is now reporting that the LAPD has released the first video and has made an arrest in connection with the unhinged destruction of President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week. In it, a man used a pickaxe to unleash his intense frustration and anger at the president and shred the star to pieces.
The suspect, who has been identified as 24-year-old Austin Clay, was arrested on Wednesday and released early Thursday morning on bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s online records. A department spokesman later said he had been held on bail of $20,000 on a charge of felony vandalism. It wasn’t immediately clear who posted bail for Mr. Clay but unsubstantiated rumors were circulating that the money came from a gofundme page which was set up right after the arrest.
In this latest incident, LAPD later confirmed that they received a call around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday morning claiming that someone had taken a pickaxe to President Trump’s Hollywood star. The police later confirmed that the vandal had pulled a pickax out of a guitar case and proceeded to smash the star which is located on the 6800 block of Hollywood Boulevard.
Here is more on this via Hot Air:
“It’s a victory for La Résistance, one supposes, but mainly just another demonstration of empty nihilism. Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame got attacked by a vandal with a pickaxe this morning, the latest in a series of attempts to deface the installation. This attempt was a little more complete than others:
President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was destroyed Wednesday morning by a man with a pickax that witnesses say he concealed in a guitar case, police said.
Officers were called around 3:30 a.m. to the star’s location on Hollywood Boulevard near Highland Avenue, where they found a small pile of rubble in place of the star that Trump received in January 2007 for his role in the NBC show “The Apprentice.”
The suspect later turned himself in to Beverly Hills police, after having conducted the vandalism in full view of a number of witnesses:
Even at in the pre-dawn hours, there were a number of witnesses to the destruction, including two security guards and a Walgreens worker who was on her way to work.
“I just seen a guy going to town on, I guess, the ground or whatever,” Patricia Cox said. “I didn’t know what was going on. …
A man turned himself in at the Beverly Hills Police Department at about 4:30 a.m. in connection with the destroyed star.
Trump’s star had to be replaced after being vandalized in October 2016 by a man dressed as a construction worker. James Otis used a pix ax and a sledgehammer then, and later pleaded no contest to felony vandalism.
Since Trump announced his candidacy and his subsequent election, the star has been a magnet for visitors unhappy with the current political climate. It has been defaced by tourists and dogs, had a model of a border wall built around it, and covered with “I resist” stickers.
All of which make perpetrators feel good about themselves, and … well, that’s just about it. All of these attacks, on a sidewalk or on other such locations, are the political equivalent of masturbation. It doesn’t even have the political impact of an honest, legal protest, which requires at least some coherent thought and rhetoric. Instead of mindless lust, it’s mindless rage, directed at an object no one really cares about except the people who will have to pay to have it repaired. And repaired and replaced it inevitably will be, which makes this exercise entirely pointless except for the revenue the city will get from the fines it will impose on the perpetrator.
But hey, at least the perp didn’t have to do any real work, like make an argument or organize to change the status quo. Probably because he’s incapable of either, frankly.”
What is wrong with these people? It’s okay to not agree with the president, or have voted for Hillary Clinton instead of him, and express your own opinion about what he’s doing in office, but it’s unacceptable for an adult to do that by vandalizing. What makes it worse is that in doing so, he’s supported by many others who somehow accept this as a good expression of speech and allegedly financially support him in doing so. That, combined with the notoriety he receives from it, is a winning combination for attention deprived activists.
Bail handouts or not, until some of these vandals and anti-Trump attackers are locked up for pulling stunts like this, things won’t stop. Maybe if all these so-called “resist” people focused on what they could do for their own lives to improve them, rather than blaming all their issues on Trump being president, they would find meaning in their life, rather than lurking around in the middle of the night destroying public property.
Hillary’s Big TV Sitcom Debut Coming To CBS This Fall With An Infuriating Show Theme
“It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse…”
Hillary Clinton is set to be a guest-star who will star as herself when she makes an appearance on a major sitcom. The show will also feature two other former secretaries of the state. It’s the show on CBS titled Madam Secretary and Hillary will be on the show along with Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell. They will play themselves on the show, which might be infuriating to some people as not everyone appears to be a fan of Hillary Clinton thanks to all the alleged scandals she’s been involved in.
It appears as though it might only be a single episode, but the fact that Clinton, the most scandalous of the three former secretaries, would be playing herself. People might wonder if part of her debut will show her deleting emails one at a time. Will the show go into what happened with Benghazi? Will the show discuss Clinton having the Democratic nominee ripped out of Bernie Sanders heart? Although, that part is ironic because socialist Sanders learned what it felt like to have something he worked for taken and given to someone else.
Is Hillary hoping to have the same success on the big screen that Roseanne did? Not sure that will happen considering the number of people who are very upset with Clinton and her allegations.
“The fictional secretary of state of CBS’ Madam Secretary will turn to three former real-life holders of the post when the show begins its fifth season this fall.
Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright will appear as themselves in the episode, set to air Sunday, Oct. 7. The trio filmed their cameos on July 11, Madam Secretary‘s first week back in production.
“We’re delighted to have these three former secretaries of state be part of our season premiere,” said series creator and executive producer Barbara Hall. “It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse both in and behind the scenes.”
Added executive producer Lori McCreary: “Having three powerhouses of diplomacy agree to come on our show is awe-inspiring and humbling. And that we were able to find a time in their busy schedules when they were all available is a miracle.”
In the episode, Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Tea Leoni) asks Albright, Powell and Clinton for advice on a delicate matter.
Albright served as secretary of state from 1997-2001 under President Bill Clinton and was the first woman to hold the post. She has appeared on Madam Secretary once before, guest-starring early in season two. She also has played herself on Parks and Recreation and Gilmore Girls.
Powell was President George W. Bush’s secretary of state from 2001-05. The former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had an uncredited cameo on JAG in 1997.
Clinton served under President Barack Obama as secretary of state from 2009-13. She did a cameo on Broad City in 2016 and appeared opposite her Saturday Night Live portrayer, Kate McKinnon, in 2015.”
Good thing it’s just a cameo because I’m not sure Hillary’s health would hold up with the brutal schedule that some actors go through. Hours of makeup, multiple takes, and that doesn’t even include walking up and down steps in foreign countries. On that note, it might include an updated wardrobe to help get Hillary out of those pantsuits and muumuus.
Keep your eyes peeled for this episode as it will likely go viral once commentators pick apart the pieces worth sharing on news outlets and social media.
If you’re wondering about Roseanne’s success, then here’s an excerpt from Deadline: “The ratings records keep coming for the debut of ABC’s Roseanne revival last week. After setting a new record for the largest-ever total viewer Live+3 lift, the sitcom’s Season 10 opener has scored TV’s largest-ever Total Viewer L+7 increase for any single telecast on any network with a big +8.81 million viewer lift over its L+SD tally. That topped the previous high,+7.86 million gain for the 9/25/17 debut of ABC’s new drama The Good Doctor. After seven days of delayed viewing, the audience of the Roseanne premiere has grown to 27.26 million total viewers (from 18.45 million in Live+Same Day).”
Hillary probably won’t come anywhere close to getting numbers like these. In fact, this is the first time I’ve ever heard of the show Madam Secretary, so maybe it’s not that popular anyway. Having Hillary on the show now seems like nothing more than a gimmick to pick up some viewers.
