Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, August 18, 2019

When incendiary stand-up Michelle Wolf took the stage at last year's White House Correspondents Dinner, she was hoping to kill. It probably didn't occur to her that she'd end up killing the event itself.

From the link ...

Wolf wasn't the one who killed the tradition of comedians making a roast-filled speech at the event. That would be the cowards in the White House Correspondents Association, who caved in to the blowback that followed Wolf's performance ...

Now that a year has gone by, it's worth investigating exactly what happened. Why was Wolf's speech deemed so outrageously offensive?

What was it that led conservative viewers to bombard the FCC with tattletale complaint calls?

What made the people who seemingly aren't moved by kids being kept in cages stand up and walk out of Wolf's speech in righteous fury?

Which jokes were the ones that proved too spicy for the people who guffaw whenever the president calls a woman "horseface" or tweets a video of himself body-slamming the very concept of CNN?

It's important to note, of course, that it wasn't just the MAGA faithful who were mad about Wolf's speech.

Legacy reporters like Andrea Mitchell and Mika Brzezinski tweeted their outrage specifically over Wolf's jokes about White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Indeed, Wolf's Sanders jokes ended up being a flash-point for her performance altogether...

Michelle Wolf did a brilliant job in telling the truth about the Media's ---------- relationship with the politicians they're supposed to be holding accountable.

And Jimmy Dore's 26-minute breakdown on Wolf's performance is just as awesome ...

Especially at the 22:30 mark where he RIGHTLY points out the outrageously grossness of the media's BS "outrage" of Wolf telling the truth to their faces, while yucking it up over George Bush joking at the 2004 WH Correspondence Dinner about not finding WMDs in Iraq.

Jimmy Dore also points out that in Washington D.C. you're not allowed to called liars, liars ... because, everyone lies.

Even Bill Burr ripped the phonies and the fake outrage over Michelle Wolf telling the truth to the Media's face.
