‘Comedian’ Who Called Trump a Nazi at WH Correspondents’ Dinner Can’t Figure Out Why He Isn’t Going

The main entertainment at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner this year won’t be a comedian, as is usually the case, but historian Ron Chernow. Perhaps this is because the White House Correspondents’ Association wants to add a bit of gravitas to the proceedings.
Or perhaps it’s just because Michelle Wolf’s performance last year was so far below the bottom of the barrel they almost had to send a rescue crew in to save tact as if it were a trapped miner.
Wolf, who proved once and for all that the dinner had become a make-work program for the dregs of “The Daily Show,” took exception to the fact that President Trump wasn’t going to be attending this year.
You know, why he won’t attend the same dinner where she called him a “Nazi” and nobody on the left seemed to bat an eye.
“I’m going to hold a rally, because the dinner is so boring and so negative,” Trump said to reporters on the White House’s South Lawn, according to the Washington Examiner.

This will mark the third year in a row Trump hasn’t gone to the event.
Responding to the news, Wolf said the president “doesn’t have a big enough spine to attend.”
“He’s just really busy, you know? He’s gotta golf. And honestly, I don’t know if anyone really wants to watch him eat,” Wolf said Friday on the red carpet at an event in New York City.

Michelle Wolf: Trump doesn’t have the "spine" to attend Correspondents’ Dinner http://bit.ly/2Ut8NyV  presented by @lifetimetv
“You’ve got to love someone that just can’t handle being made fun of. I think he doesn’t have a big enough spine to attend. If a president can’t take someone making fun of them, I don’t really care about them.”
Just so we’re clear, here are some of the greatest hits from Wolf’s set at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last year:

      • (Trump) loves white nationalists, which is a weird term for a Nazi. Calling a Nazi a white nationalist is like calling a pedophile a ‘kid friend.’”
      • “I actually really like Sarah (Sanders). I think she’s very resourceful. She burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye. Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies. It’s probably lies.”
      • “You guys gotta stop putting Kellyanne (Conway) on your shows. All she does is lie. If you don’t give her a platform, she has nowhere to lie. It’s like that old saying: If a tree falls in the woods, how do we get Kellyanne under that tree? I’m not suggesting she gets hurt; just stuck. Stuck under a tree.”
      • (Mike Pence) thinks abortion is murder. Which first of all, don’t knock it ‘til you try it — and when you do try it, really knock it. You know, you’ve got to get that baby out of there. And yeah, sure, you can groan all you want. I know a lot of you are very anti-abortion. You know, unless it’s the one you got for your secret mistress.”
      • “Of course, Trump isn’t here, if you haven’t noticed. He’s not here. And I know, I know, I would drag him here myself, but it turns out the president of the United States is the one p— you’re not allowed to grab.”Gosh, I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t want to sit through that kind of monologue.
        Wolf’s routine, by the way, elicited an apology from the head of the White House Correspondents’ Association.
        “Last night’s program was meant to offer a unifying message about our common commitment to a vigorous and free press while honoring civility, great reporting and scholarship winners, not to divide people,” WHCA President Margaret Talev said in a statement, according to Fox News. “Unfortunately, the entertainer’s monologue was not in the spirit of that mission.”
        It’s also widely seen as the reason why there’s going to be a historian as opposed to a comedian at this year’s dinner, scheduled for April 27.
        So, please, tell us about taking a joke, Michelle. Tell us how we’re supposed to take it as we’re called Nazis and told we deserve to be crushed by falling trees. Tell us how not wanting to hear this at “nerd prom,” an event where the media meets yearly to fete themselves, makes a person spineless.
        Is it really too hard to figure out why Trump isn’t going? Here’s a hint: It’s not because he’s a comedic invertebrate.
