Michelle Wolf is, so they tell me, a comedienne.
She has her own Netflix show coming up soon and her “coming out” appearance at the recent White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCD) was designed to shock, horrify and create interest in this upcoming show. All the while entertaining the well-heeled, elitist crowd at the lavish DC dinner.
Well, she checked nearly all those boxes. She was indeed shocking, horrifying and did certainly stir up some publicity for herself.
The one box she failed to put a check in? That would be entertaining. Or Funny. Or even mildly witty and humorous.
And that has become an ongoing issue with a whole lot of what passes for today as comedy from our brothers and now sisters on the left.
Where to start?
Ms. Wolf, a self-proclaimed “ultra-feminist” bashed Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House Press secretary for her looks, referring to her as dowdy, fat, a clueless sack-wearing mouthpiece who sets fashion back decades and a harlot with too much eye liner and cited KellyAnne Conway who also sat stoically in the audience as she was mercilessly attacked as something close to what Goebbels was during the Hitler regime. Let’s see, stop me when you start to laugh. The classless Ms. Wolf referred to the President’s daughter Ivanka as “nothing more than an empty box of tampons” while Melania Trump was maligned as plastic and brain-dead.
I’m sorry, but did we all just get transported back to middle school?
Are these the witless, pointless and just plain mean-spirited personal insults that the Left was fawning over after the dinner? Is this the type of “humor” we need right now in our country? I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that Jimmy Kimmel referred to Ms. Wolf as his “new, personal hero.”
Has the entertainment industry in our nation become so enraged, so full of white, hot hatred that they have lost all sense of right and wrong?
And whatever happened to sisterhood?
Or have women on the left of the political aisle like Ms. Wolf become so consumed by their hatred for Trump that it matters not that when they choose to launch such vicious, vile personal attacks on their fellow women they seem to casually set the entire women’s movement back some 50 years?
Can you imagine what women like Ms. Wolf would be saying about how there are so many prominent women in this White House, this Administration (and there are in record numbers) if it was a liberal presidency?
Wow. There wouldn’t be enough awards to present or movies to be made in Hollywood to memorialize the courageous, female pioneers of the Trump Presidency.
But, since the Left despises Trump and all he stands for they apparently feel emboldened, even obligated to spew incredibly base, juvenile and offensive insults at any and all women they feel aren’t part of their “resistance.”
The folks who keep lecturing us about harmony, diversity and tolerance sure have become truly nasty women.
But the real problem as I referenced earlier is that all of this name-calling, body-shaming and appearance attacking is just not funny. As Jerry Seinfeld, who has forgotten more than Ms. Wolf will ever know about tickling the funny bone once noted, “If it’s not funny, you can’t call it a comedy, and if you can’t call it a comedy then you don’t get to call yourself a comedien.”
Ms. Wolf may be a number of things but based on her painfully unfunny blistering attacks she made the other night one thing is clear, she’s no comedienne.
What once was an event noted for its good-spirited humor, an evening where the press and the president playfully “roasted” each other has become, especially in the absence of the president merely another fancy, high-priced, self-congratulatory event designed to vent the collective spleen of the Left on this presidency and all who serve it.
Especially, or so it would appear, the women who have the audacity to not be card-carrying members of the Planned Parenthood or fully support the agenda of the Left.
I guess you’re only a sister if you agree with the resistance.
If not then you are fair game. No matter how hideous, cruel and vile. There, take that Sarah, KellyAnne, Melania, Ivanka and Nikki. How dare you break from the pack and have your own political views and opinions?
Time for the WHCD to turn off the lights and put the silverware, especially the sharp knives away. It just isn’t funny anymore.
Or, to put it another way, more people tuned into see Roseanne last week than they did to see the Academy Awards, the Grammys, the WHCD, Jimmy Kimmel and the Stephen Colbert shows. Combined.
To quote a legendary “sister” of comedy, Joan Rivers, “If you are funny they will come and they will stay and they will laugh. And if you aren’t then your sex won’t save you.”
Kudos to Sarah Huckabee Sanders and KellyAnne Conway for sitting just a few feet away from Ms. Wolf and not leaping to their feet and leaving that sad excuse for a show. No one should have to endure that type of personal attack in the name of comedy and journalism.
But they did.
Nice to see some sisters have class.
