Last night the annual White House Correspondents Dinner was held. The event is a combination of media and current White House Administration members, minus Donald Trump, of course, who was off giving another campaign style rally somewhere in Michigan. The two sides, who are probably usually at odds, have an opportunity to be in one another’s presence without the pressures of their every day jobs, which usually pit the two sides directly against one another. Which is probably the reason a comedian is always invited to perform, and probably why lots and lots of alcohol is surely flowing at these events. In the hope to make what everyone knows will be an uncomfortable event, hopefully a little comfortable….or at least tolerable. Last night’s comedic relief was comedian Michelle Wolf. Wolf’s performance was immediately called offensive by Trump supporters. Offensive is probably the last word I would use for Wolf’s performance. Uncomfortable? Maybe. But offensive is not a word that I would use. I basically see it as getting a taste of your own medicine. Trump and his administration has made a living out of handing out mean nicknames to people (crooked Hilary, Lying leaking Comey, Rocket-Man Kim Jung Un, Little Marco Rubio…etc.etc.etc), but, when the tables turn, the name-calling tribe of supporters quickly find a way to make themselves out to be victims. I wish there was a name for people like that….WAIT! There is! SNOWFLAKES! Better yet, CUPCAKES. Anyway, here’s Michelle Wolf’s stand-up act last night. While I didn’t find it rib hurting funny, I did find it very ironically truthful. That’s probably the part that Trumpers found offensive. The truth hurts!
