Trump says he relishes enthusiasm, 'love' at MI rally

Comedian Michelle Wolf roasts absent Donald Trump at White House Correspondents' dinner

Since abortion jokes are rare, whether in pro-choice or pro-life circles, I am going to give you Wolf's in full because I think it perfectly captures Wolf's particular comedic sensibility.

Wolf drew groans from the crowd as she commented on Sanders' appearance and Southern roots.

Wolf's performance, in particular the Huckabee Sanders material, sparked outrage from the conservative class and left some in the Washington media questioning the event's decorum.

A year after the White House boycotted the annual dinner - and with President Donald Trump holding a competing campaign-style rally in MI - director of strategic communications Mercedes Schlapp and her husband, conservative activist Matt Schlapp, were among those who marched out of the ballroom at the Washington Hilton long before Wolf's keynote routine was over. And that says a lot more about them than it does about Wolf's routine.

President Donald Trump, in a characteristically free-wheeling speech Saturday night, tossed out an unspecified allegation about Montana Democratic Sen.

That's how comedian Michelle Wolf answered Sean Spicer's declaration that her headlining stand-up set at the the White House Correspondents' Association dinner was "a disgrace".

Wolf's speech-particularly the portion targeting the women of the Trump administration-triggered a slew of sharp headlines on Sunday.

Wolf also went after Sanders for her willingness to continue to lie on behalf of Donald Trump. Mr. Trump, she said, "has helped you sell your papers and your books and your TV".

Sarah Huckabee Sanders always behaves with dignity, as she did Saturday night.

Even Lil Wayne weighed in as Derrius Guice's NFL Draft stock plummeted

Ford to discontinue all except two cars from the United States market
Lincoln now sells the mid-size MKZ and full-size Continental, and they share the same sedan platforms as their Ford counterparts. First quarter adjusted earnings rose to 43 cents a share, topping analysts' average estimate of 41 cents.

"I know things about Tester that I could say, too", Trump said. 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. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was in attendance, representing the White House.

Wolf was the after-dinner entertainment for the White House press corps and their guests, and she was surprisingly vulgar for the venue.

"It's 2018 and I'm a woman, so you can not shut me up, unless you have Michael Cohen wire me $130,000".

"Trump isn't here, if you haven't noticed".

Ahead of the rally Trump said in a fundraising pitch that he had come up with something better than being stuck in a room "with a bunch of fake news liberals who hate me".

"We are graced with Sarah's presence tonight", Wolf said.

"I think the hostilities need to be de-escalated on both sides", Scaramucci added.

It was the second dinner held in a row where Mr Trump had failed to attend.

Mike Allen, co-founder of news site Axios, said there would be "big debate whether to end the dinner as we know it, and whether some news organisations announce they will no longer attend". 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.
