White House Correspondents' Association Denounces Comedian's Routine

It was over the top.

If you missed it over the weekend, comedian Michelle Wolf headlined the annual White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) dinner. Many found her "jokes" to be over the top. Now, the WHCA is apologizing. 

Here's more from The Daily Caller:

It was supposed to be an event honoring journalism, but the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner devolved into partisan attacks on President Donald Trump and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckacbee Sanders. For that, Margaret  Talev, the outgoing head of the WHCA, wants people to know, she has regrets.

The WHCA released a statement Sunday night that, while short of an apology, did express regrets that “the entertainer’s monolog was not in the spirit of” the celebratory tone they aspired to.

The “entertainer” the statement refers to is comedian Michelle Wolf, who came under fire during the event for her mean-spirited and vicious cracks about the President and, in particular, Sanders, who was sitting at the head table at the event.
