Seth Myers went to town on critics of comedian Michelle Wolf’s White House Correspondence’s Dinner performance. Myers opened his bit with a reference to President Trump’s tweet criticizing Wolf, whom he called “filthy.” What audacity!
Wolf cause an uproar over the weekend among the dainty, pearl-clutching conservatives on Fox News, who suddenly developed a sense of decorum after exhibiting pin-drop silence on Trump’s misogynistic, pussy-grabbing, sex-assaulting, porn-star bedding, wife cheating antics.
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!

The president had the audacity to call Wolf “filthy.”
“The White House Correspondents’ Dinner was a failure last year, but this year was an embarrassment to everyone associated with it,” Trump Tweeted. “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!”
Myers personally thanked Trump from bringing up his 2011 performance. “It’s always nice when the ‘Eye of Sauron’ is upon you,” he quipped. You may recall, from the “Lord of the Rings,” a symbol adopted by the Dark Lord during the Second Age and the Third Age.
Myers pointed out that Wolf used to work for his show. “First of all she doesn’t need anyone to defend her,” he said. “So just know when you call her filthy, you… are right. She is filthy, and she is mean, which is what we love about her.
“Because those are wonderful qualities for comedians and terrible qualities for free world leaders.”
