I just watched Michelle Wolf’s comedy routine for the White House Correspondence Dinner. Just like every year, there are times I cringed and times I laughed. Jokes that went well, and those that fell flat. The only noticeable difference from any other year was the president’s protesting absence and that it was a woman speaking.
The comedic roast during the Correspondence Dinner is almost a century long tradition, but because one woman made jokes about women’s issues, news agencies are threatening to permanently pull their support if it continues next year. That seems absurd and reactionary, but here we are.
For a country that has come so far on women’s issues, we have no shortage of current witch hunts.
Michelle Wolf has been fired and falsely accused of beastiality. Yes, really.
