I have read the annotated transcript of Michelle Wolf’s set last night at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. I am definitely with those who think the snowflakes in the media need to stop whining about her. She spoke some plain truth but nothing that was unusually mean for one of these speeches.
I wanted to especially highlight this bit, for pure truth. To the assembled media:
You guys are obsessed with Trump. Did you used to date him? Because you pretend like you hate him, but I think you love him. I think what no one in this room wants to admit is that Trump has helped all of you. He couldn’t sell steaks or vodka or water or college or ties or Eric, but he has helped you.
He’s helped you sell your papers and your books and your TV. You helped create this monster, and now you’re profiting off of him. And if you’re gonna profit off of Trump, you should at least give him some money because he doesn’t have any.
If you want to watch her speak in person, YouTube has it all.

A blast from the ’80s.
Yes, it was as horrible as you might imagine, and still mesmerizing to watch.
