This is vicious: “The best selective outrage, folks.”

If you think the above language is inappropriate, it’s being modeled, daily, by our President. Talk to him about it. Michelle Wolf was. vicious, powerful, speaking truth to power, and R-rated. Watch her go to town, below.

Michelle Wolf performs stand-up routine at White House Correspondent’s dinner. Maybe the best and most pointed since Colbert’s. Amazing President Trump can’t ball it up to show, as Obama & Bush did.

Apparently many on the Right are offended. Who’s the snowflake now? This is comedy. It’s all about being the fool in the king’s court–saying what isn’t said elsewhere.

Ya. Didn’t they vote for Trump because he “said it like it is” or “isn’t politically correct”?

Image and title via Twitter and Reddit.

The one pussy you’re not allowed to grab. He said it first.

It’s funny the Trump campaign was in touch with Russia before the election when the Hillary campaign wasn’t even in touch with Michigan. It’s a direct flight.

Mike Pence if you haven’t seen it…you would love it.

Vicious, brave, fearless, and bold—calling out Trump, the press…things got quiet there…Democrats, and mostly just Aunt Sarah Huckabee:

PS:

FLINT STILL DOESN’T HAVE CLEAN WATER

Waylon, I'm confused. Just 2 days ago you seemed to apologize for the Elephant Instagram post "Live Loudly & Unapologetically". You said "we value gentleness, silence, quite.....follow our values of kindness and empathy, NO MATTER WHAT". My emphasis is on the no matter what. This post seems to say, the right does it so if the left does it, that's ok too? And when it comes to a political agenda, anything goes, especially if you can say it's in the name of humor? I don't agree with everything on either political side of the table, but this post was a rare disappointment.

Stick to "Wisdom" talk my friend, this was cheap thinking...

Jason Baum Apr 30, 2018 11:49pm

This was my tweet today sort of on the subject, but more on the observation that Trump brings out the worst in me. Trump is extremely adept at leveraging the schisms resulting for a cultural civil war being fought for centuries. Villianizing the opposing side will miminally prolong the healing process if not make it untenable. https://twitter.com/jasonbaum/status/990933973273587712?s=21

I'm not sure what the takeaway is supposed to be. It seems to be "Yay! a comedian pissed some people off!" So now we are all pissed off, or, pushed back into justifying "our side". It's a lot of wasted energy on "who said it worse?" Trump or Wolf? I think that's why Flint's water is still dirty.

Laura Caragher I know it was a roast. I know all the other roasts have been designed the same way. You are missing the point - I don't care what she said... Some of it was funny... the issue here is whether or not the author of this article was correct in calling this bold, Brave, and fearless. It was none of these things. And I sincerely doubt Buddha would be laughing at cheap shots being taken at people in the name of humor. Had Waylon suggested that there are better ways to confront troubled times than by making fun of a person's size and weight or demeanor then perhaps Buddha could have gotten on board with the idea that respectful humor can be a tool to solve disagreements. If memory serves, there were no fat jokes or ugly jokes or jokes about shrill dispositions thrown at Michelle's expense. Trump is guilty of a lot of things but none of them will be fixed in this way.

Everyone is upset with Michelle Wolf being spotlighted on Elephant Journal - but you're going to tell me you feel enlightened by menstrual blood? It's okay to not like something. Just pass on it. It's simple.

Laura Caragher Apr 30, 2018 7:56pm

How do so many people *not* know that this has been par for the course for literally every Correspondents' Dinner? It's a roast. A nearly unknown comedian shed light to how absurd and upside-down the present state of our nation is. You don't have to like it - but learn the CONTEXT before bailing out. She was a tiny woman raining verbal karma. Buddha would laugh. Just sayin.

Laura Caragher Apr 30, 2018 7:52pm

It was a roast, doll. Please see literally every past Correspondents' Dinner for reference.

Much like Barbara Bush (God rest her soul!) my Episcopalian grandmother would have washed everyone's mouth out with soap (including the President, Michelle Wolf, and Mr. Hillyard below) and grounded most of them from further public discourse for at least a week, at least until they learned how to respectfully disagree without being disagreeable and disrespectful! What ever happened to the dharma of compassion? To speaking the Truth in Love? To the moral leadership of the Presidency? To the way, the truth, and the life of the one whom God "sent into the world NOT to condemn the world, but so that the world through Christ might be saved."? (John 3:17) For now I am cancelling my subscription in favor of a much deeper and richer quest for mindfulness, compassion, and the Kingdom of God both within, and yet to more fully come upon the earth, as it is in heaven. May God have mercy upon you and upon our beloved country.

I come to this site on a regular basis and understand that it is a liberal-minded operation. But I also very much appreciate the authors who work very hard to uplift the readers. This is an unfortunate deviation from what I, apparently, wrongly believe was an operation trying to inform and uplift its readers. There is simply nothing "brave, fearless, and bold" about this video and it is absolutely not informing or uplifting anyone. It is petty and childish and, for all intents and purposes, rooting on a bully under the guise of celebrating a woman's courage and Independence. But it's none of this... It's just shrill and unproductive. If only you had mentioned somewhere that this is an example of how not to seek Middle Ground and work together to effect positive change I might have bought into it but this is sad regrettable and unfortunate.

Mark Hillyard Apr 30, 2018 2:31am

Heh! whatever you think you are I'm not impressed! What are you dimwits "resisting"? The Truth!!! Perhaps you wouldn't see the truth if someone pointed out to you that HellFire was at the gate and the flames are burning the door down. You goofs think President Trump is mean...wait a while, maybe tomorrow, maybe years down the road, there will be something you fantasized could never happen.
