The White House correspondents dinner “entertainment” was so bad, even the ene-media was embarrassed.

Is it any wonder that President Donald Trump opted out of the White House correspondents dinner? Sarah Huckabee attended, and a New York Times reporter was impressed that she didn’t walk out during the “comedienne’s” performance:

Besides joking about Sarah Huckabee’s appearance, Michelle Wolf joked about abortion, firmly in favor of “knocking” the baby out of the womb. Progressive values were on full display!

And everyone knows that, by exposing who they are on C-span, they have set themselves back in the next election.

See more media embarrassment at the Daily Caller’s story.

The Daily Beast reports, “Michelle Wolf Mocks Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Huckabee Sanders to Their Faces at WHCD.

Wolf may not have gotten to make jokes to Trump’s face, but she did seem to enjoy roasting administration figures in the room like Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who did not seem amused when the camera cut to them.

“Kellyanne Conway has the perfect last name for what she does: Conway,” she said. “It’s like if my name was Michelle Jokes Frizzy Hair Small Tits. You guys have to stop putting Kellyanne on your shows. If you don’t give her a platform, she has nowhere to lie. It’s like that old saying: If a tree falls in the woods, how do we get Kellyanne under that tree. I’m not suggesting she gets hurt. Just stuck.”

And then there was Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “I have to say I’m a little star-struck,” she said. “I love you as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid’s Tale.” With Sanders just a few feet away on the dais, Wolf praised the press secretary’s resourcefulness. “She burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye,” she said. “Like maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies. It’s probably lies.”

As is customary at these events, Wolf also told some jokes about the major news networks in the room, including Fox News. “So you know what that means, ladies, cover your drinks,” she said. “Seriously. People want me to make fun of Sean Hannity tonight, but I could not do that. This dinner is for journalists.” On the recently-engaged hosts of Morning Joe, she added, “Congratulations, you guys, it’s like when a #MeToo works out.”

Here’s the whole performance with all its foul language:
