Seth Meyers Agrees With Donald Trump: Michelle Wolf Is

"Everyone is talking about the fact that the White House Correspondents Dinner was a very big, boring bust...the so-called comedian really 'bombed, '" Trump tweeted Sunday.

Margaret Talev, a Bloomberg News reporter who heads the association, released a statement late Sunday saying Wolf's almost 20-minute monologue at the White House Correspondents' Dinner "was not in the spirit" of the group's mission.

Past comedians "go kind of table by table pointing at people and making fun of them, in a way that I think used to be fun because the dinner used to have the president there", she said.

Wolf, who worked at Bear Stearns before it collapsed in 2008, has developed a sometimes brutal comedic style that's been on display during her stints on "Late Night with Seth Meyers", "The Daily Show" and a recent HBO special.

Wolf was admonished both by the right and some White House reporters, particularly for roasting Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Is it Sarah Sanders, is it Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is it Cousin Huckabee, is it Aunt Huckabee Sanders? She pointed out that the dinner had praised Mr. Trump for meeting with aspiring journalists at the White House and featured the story of an Egyptian social activist who was freed from prison with the help of the Trump administration.

"If you've seen any of my comedy you know that I don't - I'm not", she continued.

"Honestly, I wouldn't change a single word", she said. There's been a backlash and a backlash TO the backlash, with supporters defending Wolf's controversial jokes. Mr. Trump, she said, "has helped you sell your papers and your books and your TV".

"For the record, I was in the room last night". Everyone is focused on Sanders but that was only 1 1/2 minutes of Michelle's act.

Ty Herndon represented country music at Saturday's (April 28) White House Correspondents' Dinner in Washington, DC.

And, depending on who you talk to, she was absolutely bad or she killed it or she should apologize. And I don't think they expected that from me. "And I don't want the cause of unity to be undercut". Congratulations, when the three of you go out to dinner, I'm sure you'll be laughing a lot.

Wolf said she wasn't expecting her performance to rise to the level of controversy it has, but added that she isn't disappointed by the response.

"Mr. Trump used his national and global audience of millions of people to make a false factual statement to denigrate and attack Ms. Clifford", it said.

It's quite hard to write about the White House Correspondents Association dinner when you think the worst kind of journalism is about journalists' reaction to a party thrown for journalists to honor journalists (and raise money).
