“Roast” of Sarah Sanders at media banquet ignites media firestorm

The White House Correspondents Dinner was supposed to be a celebration of the free press, but it turned rather ugly once the so-called comedian took the microphone.

Michelle Wolf, a not-so-well-known comedian immediately started in with off-colored jokes about Trump, Roy Moore, then tried to obliterate Sarah Sanders.

Women Support Women, Right?

Wolf, in fact, was so offensive, there have been more than a few calls for the association to apologize to Sanders as well as members of the press being outraged over her routine.

The “comedian” lashed out at Sanders with several attacks.

First, calling her Aunt Lydia from ‘The Handmaid’s Tale.”

The character, in case you are not familiar with the show, is an unattractive woman responsible for brainwashing women to fall in line with government beliefs.

Some of her preferred methods include the use of a cattle prod and whipping the women.

Wolf took another shot at Sanders’ appearance, saying “She burns facts, and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye.”

Surprisingly, Maggie Haberman of the New York Times and Mike Brzezinksi were also outraged over the comedian’s comments, calling for an apology, but they were liberals in the minority, that is for sure.

Sarah Sanders, as you know, is Trump’s press secretary.

However, she is also a mother and wife.

This dinner was televised, so imagine the anguish of knowing your children are sitting there watching you get ripped to shreds in front of the entire country.

No Class

In addition to her jokes against Sanders, one of Wolf’s opening comments attempted to make light of the Roy Moore situation.

She said she was 32, which made her 20 years too young to attend the dinner, but 20 years too old for Roy Moore.

In a day and age when sensitivity to sexual assault is an at all-time high, the joke was more than just a bit over the line.

The Double Standard

While it would be nice to think Wolf’s attacks against Sanders were a rarity, this is the new norm for the Democrat party.

They say they are for women, yet they attack conservative women with outrageous comments like the ones made by Wolf last night.

They pretend they are for gay rights, yet people like Joy Reid are clearly homophobic.

They tell conservatives we are the lowest of the low and break down every word said until they can manipulate them and turn them into something to suit their narrative, but they expect to get away with conduct like last night.

When you stand for women, or any cause, you stand by them all, not just the people that fall in line with your political beliefs.

These attacks against conservative women need to stop, and they need to stop now.
