The 24-hour whirlwind of criticism or praise for Michelle Wolf's controversial grilling at the White House correspondent's banquet ended late on Sunday with President Trump who called the comedy "filthy" and the president of the association regretted that Wolf's monologist did not live up to the "spirit" of the dinner mission, which is "not sharing people".
Both took a little warmth for their answers: Trump to be gentle; The association for putting in a critic "spineless" or, as Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus expressed it, "disease."
They responded to Wolf's 19-minute routine Saturday night which contained what was perceived as vulgar commentary about the appearance of women in the administration, especially the White House's press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Wolf said that Sanders "burns the facts, and then she uses the ashes to create a perfect smoky eye." She also compared Sanders to aunt Lydia character in "The Handmaid's Speech" – a character that indoctrines the officials with sinful faith.
Trump's late night tweet gave rise to a response that responded to some of Trump's comments about women centered on their bodies or parts of their bodies.
There was a long list of examples.
He has called Megyn Kelly a "bimbo" and insinuated that he believed she must have been menstrual when she moderated a presidential dialogue.
At the Howard Stern show, he has ranked the women's appearance on one to 10 scale. He has called Rosie O & # 39; Donnell and Arianna Huffington respectively "disgusting" and "unattractive" "both inside and out".
And he has called MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski "Low I.Q. Crazy Mika" as "bleeding badly from a facelift".
"Any gem that spits [Wolf’s] comments and demands that she apologize must demand that Trump apologize for calling women fat pigs, slobs and talking about their bodies," wrote comedian Kathy Griffin in a highly circulated, 26-thirty who defended Wolf's monologue. "Not to say, apologize for comments like" blood coming out of her … "- but no they have not demanded him because they are afraid of Trump. Instead, they go for a comedian who is paid to make joke. "
And of course, was the Access Hollywood tape, where Trump talked about how he could" do something "for women.
The president, who did not attend dinner for the second consecutive year, said in a tweet that the event should either be interrupted or resumed. He also referred to the White Paper's 2011 correspondent when he was spotted by comedian Seth Meyers at a time when Trump led the "birther" movement against President Barack Obama.
The dinner "was a failure last year but this year was a shame for anyone associated with it," wrote Trump on Twitter. "The dirty" comedian "was completely bombarded (could not even deliver her lines, much like Seth Meyer's weak performance). Put dinner to rest or start over!"
"Like someone who has listened to all Trump-Stern- The interviews wrote "CNN's Andrew Kaczynski on Twitter, " I do not think he should be throwing stones on all "filthy" comments or joke. "
