Michelle Wolf White House Correspondents' Dinner Roast 2018

Wow, Michelle Wolf Didn't Hold Back While Roasting People at the White House Correspondents' Dinner

Under Donald Trump's administration, we've seen plenty of comedians use modern politics as inspiration for their material. The 2018 White House Correspondents' Dinner, where comedian and writer Michelle Wolf delivered a speech that poked fun at the president and many of his cabinet members, was no exception. Though she began the roast by reassuring the crowd that she was only there to "make jokes" and had "no agenda," her jokes, especially those about White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, have been a source of controversy.

Trump was not in attendance at the gathering, but he did tweet about Wolf's speech afterward, and — surprise! — he wasn't pleased.

The Correspondents' Dinner is traditionally used to roast journalists and members of the current administration, at times making the audience uncomfortable, but did Wolf take it too far? Watch her entire 19-minute speech above, and we'll let you decide for yourself.
