Michelle Wolf Nails Trump After He Attacks Her on Twitter

President Donald Trump lashed out at the performer from this past year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Twitter on Tuesday night after the organization behind the event announced it would not be hosting a comedian in 2019. “So-called comedian Michelle Wolf bombed so badly last year at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner that this year, for the first time in decades, they will have an author instead of a comedian,” the president wrote. “Good first step in comeback of a dying evening and tradition! Maybe I will go.” A little over an hour later, Michelle Wolf shot back, “I bet you’d be on my side if I had killed a journalist,” in response to Trump’s latest comments about the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, adding first lady Melania Trump’s anti-bullying hashtag #BeBest. Trump declined to attend the event during his first two years in office, leaving the comedian hosts to roast him in absentia. Following the decision to hire historian Ron Chernow instead of the traditional comedian, Wolf tweeted, “The @whca are cowards. The media is complicit. And I couldn’t be prouder.”
