Comedian Wolf has lost the support of the White House Correspondents Association after her performance at this weekend’s correspondent’s dinner. After her attack on Sarah Sanders and Kellyanne Conway, the association initially attempted to show support for the comedian but due to the public outrage, they ultimately reversed their position.
After the details of her monologue were made public, people responded with outrage. Not so much in defense of Trump but mostly in defense of Sanders and Conway. The maligning of Trump was considered fair game but her malicious attack on the physical appearance of Sander went beyond the line.
The Correspondent’s head Margaret Talev from Bloomberg initially defended Wolf when she appeared on CNN. Once she was faced with the extent of the public’s outrage, she backed off and tried to mollify the backlash by stating “People are sick and tired of gross so called liberal entertainers mouthing off with no professional consequences”.
