Michelle Wolf’s “Disgraceful” Performance at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner | The Daily Show

We have a lot of laughs
here at The Daily Show, but comedy isn’t
just about jokes. It’s also about being polite
and respecting authority. Unfortunately, it seems
that some comedians, like Michelle Wolf,
don’t understand that. Now, if you’re new to the show, Michelle Wolf used to be
a writer and contributor here until last December,
when she left to go host her own show
on Netflix. And at the time,
I was very, very happy for her, but that was
before last weekend. NEWSMAN: President Trump
calling for an end to the White House
Correspondents’ Dinner. This personal jab
at White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, seated on stage. I think she’s very resourceful. Like, she burns facts, and then she uses that ash
to create a perfect smoky eye. (laughter, groans) Since when has it been okay
to make cheap jokes about a woman’s appearance? …so incredibly disrespectful,
it was shameful, it was disgusting. I thought the language
was filthy. It was really over the…
over the line, X-rated. It’s a complete disgrace that
there wasn’t a single person on the dais that
interrupted that woman as filth was coming
out of her mouth. Yeah! Why didn’t someone
stop that woman? It’s, like, Michelle roasted
these people so hard that they wanted
police protection. Like, “Why isn’t
the secret service jumping -in front of those jokes?!”
-(laughter) But it’s not funny. Because Michelle
should have had the decency not to comment
on women’s appearances in any way, shape or form. She’s a comedian,
for God’s sake. Not the president. NEWSMAN:
Donald Trump on the defense, after attacking Carly Fiorina,
telling Rolling Stone, “Look at that face!
Would anyone vote for that?” NEWSWOMAN:
Trump is under fire for how he treated 1996
pageant winner Alicia Machado. She weighed 118 pounds
or a 117 pounds, and she went up to 160 or 170. So this is somebody
that likes to eat. She said I made
inappropriate advances. You take a look, look at her,
look at her words– you tell me what you think. I don’t think so. I’d fire Rosie.
I mean, I’d look her right in that fat, ugly face of hers. I’d say, “Rosie, you’re fired.” You see, now, that’s how you
insult a woman’s face. Michelle’s joke was about how Sarah Sanders creates makeup
out of lies, you know. When Trump’s insulting women,
he just says “fat ugly face.” None of that smart comedy
with layers of meaning. Just insults. That’s why you don’t send
a woman to do a man’s job. Just get to it. And look, I know that comedy
is hard to analyze and set rules for,
but Trump’s people get it. Joking is no excuse if a comedian is insulting
the president. It’s only an excuse
when the insults are coming from the president. Trump insists that he wants
to call Obama the founder. He is the founder of ISIS. I think the title
that he gave, “founder,” was the-the point of sarcasm. Donald Trump made that comment
tongue-in-cheek about going and getting
her e-mails. The entire world knows
the president is kidding. The president certainly, uh,
never implied that the secretary of state was not, uh,
incredibly intelligent. He made a joke, uh,
nothing more than that. Maybe you guys should, uh,
get a sense of humor and try it sometime, but, um,
he simply made a joke. Exactly. Get a sense of humor,
snowflakes. Now, get out of the way. We have to put up this plaque
in memory of the brave people roasted
to death by Michelle Wolf. Hashtag, #NeverForget. So listen, I-I agree completely with President Trump
and his team, comedians should be held to
a higher standard than he is. Which is why, even though
Michelle Wolf left for her new show four months
ago, tonight I’m announcing that I’m officially firing her. You hear that, Michelle? (mimics Trump):
You’re fired!

About the author


  1. Jesus all of the conservatives that are pissed off at wolf for making those jokes are only hurting their own political agenda. Im on the independent side. Isnt the point of being a democrat or republican to convince us, the independents to join their side? We're all laughing because they are the ones that are being snowflakes right now.

    Edit: Btw i hate michelle wolf and i think shes a garbage comedian who cant deliver a punchline to save her life but lets be real for a second. The right are acting like sandy vaginas right now.

  2. I honestly never heard of Michelle Wolf. That screeching f*****g voice, Jesus! And she looks like a tranny with cheap makeup. Given that, go look at all the past WHCD's. The opposing parties speech givers were just as vicious to the then administrations in office. So let's dispense with how this is a first.

  3. Republicans after they make an offensive joke: Ha, take a joke snowflake! Why are you always so uptight! Its just a joke you SJW!


    Ah, what a time to be alive.

  4. For once Trevor was disappointing. Or maybe all the jokes went over my head. Trevor, I'm here for you to make funny situations funnier not do whatever it is you were doing in this video.

  5. The lefts media late night propaganda machine is a disgrace. Sad. SAD AND PATHETIC.

  6. Michelle comes off as awkward all the time. Like she is disabled or something. Makes me cringe.

  7. Trevor Noah, Michelle Wolf AND THEIR FANS are dumb f*ck ignorant morons who have zero clue as to what's going on in this world. Go watch "The Clinton Chronicles" and "Banished," posted by Danney Williams, both on YouTube. Trevor Noah is such a sh*t that he even dissed Danney Williams on his show, just to try and make Hillary look good- that's how much of a POS he is. Someone has been asking for a DNA test for decades, and he makes fun of that person? What a classless, ignorant as*hole.

  8. well the woman at 0:55 did a terrible smokey eye so i can't see why she'd be sensitive about it.

    and yes, that's a jab at her appearance

  9. Republicans are so stupid! I'm religious and have conservative values too as a Democrat but even I know when men make the same jokes or jibes about women they don't get as much pushback. There's evidence right there! And to see other people of my race defend Trump? What happened to my people for them to be so senseless?

  10. Damn! Trevor and Michelle are amazing comedians and absolutely rip snowflakes to shreds. Proud their on the side with us good guys.


  12. Insults are not good from anyone, but Michelle was disgusting. Trumps disgusting when he insults people on their looks etc too.

  13. Trump is repulsive
    Also how the fuck is making a joke about facts and makeup filthy and as bad as they were making it out to be?!

  14. I do not know how she got the job! Not funny, Sounds too irritating, cannot act, too ugly for the casting couch and not even a good looking for a child for the Pedo's……. Go figure! GOT CANCELLED!

  15. Misogynist Michelle's ugly aggression to Sarah, and your laughing at it, is sick, sexist, disgusting, & why more women voted for Trump than for hypocrite Hillary, who's stays married to a serial rapist. All narcissists.

  16. I say keep the WHCC going. Here are a few female honorable mentions: Joan Rivers, Wanda Sykes, Chelsea Handler, Kathy Griffin, Phillis Diller, Whoopi Goldberg, Tiffany Haddish, Lily Tomlin, Nicole Byer, Aisha Tyler, Gilda Radner, Margaret Cho and Joy Behar

  17. Well now she has been chancled and fuck her ! Tacking about fackt ? So hilary whatbhappen to the sniper fire episode ? And kkk frinds ? Her husband adultry and is her own daughter not anbastert child ? Sins bill is not her biological dad !

  18. Goddammit
    Is your politics and your jokes more important than the fact that it was meant to hurt Sarah
    It was not fun for her, she just vented on her
    You are just as bad, where the hell did the moral high ground go???

  19. you're ALL a bunch of partisan hacks. Michelle wolf was mostly funny, the huckabee part felt kinda cringey and dragged on, but overall it was a great comedy show.

  20. i'm not offended by what she said, i'm offended by her awful voice and her stroke-like facial ticks, along side her "am i right or am i right" attitude

  21. This is ridiculous, since when is it ok to make a joke about a women’s appearance? Since the dawn of time, they’re jokes their peoples funny opinions, stop thinking it’s ok to shame people for their jokes

  22. 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 has helped you sell your papers and your books and your TV. You helped create this monster and now you're profiting off of him.

  23. Trevor is an idiot who used his bullshit apartheid story to get sympathy. That dude grew up after apartheid…fuck this guy and that stupid bitch..

  24. Lmao and the right has the nerve too call others snowflakes. Lmao calling out a woman for mocking another woman .while there president habitually berates women? I'm fucking puzzled at this hypocrisy thin skinned bitches

  25. So funny that Trevor doesnt see the hypocrisy of saying they're just words….

    That's what conservatives have been saying for years, liberals are the ones who think words are violence.

    Bottom line: Hate Speech isn't real, not legally.
    And it is protected by Free Speech. Free Speech has to protect all language not just language you approve of or even the President approves of because then it will change every 4 to 8 years.

  26. her jokes weren't funny. end of line
    she had the right to poke at people for whatever she wanted…. if, she was funny
    she wasn't though. thats the problem. you can make fun of peoples appearances all day long, but u have to be funny.
    because lets face it… trump making fun of rosie was funny, and i don't even like him. rosie sucks.
    …trevor sucks too….

  27. Were you a sex slave or are you a predator #TrevorNoah? God bless you πŸŒ»πŸŒ»πŸŒ»πŸŒ»πŸŒ»πŸŒ»πŸŒ»πŸŒ»πŸŒ»πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸŒΈ

  28. Oh get over yourselves! Her jokes were jokes, not like the outrageous, sarcastic remarks of The Donald. He doesn't have a funny bone in his body, but he might think he does.

  29. What's really disgraceful is trevor noah been picked as a replacement for jon stewart.
    That's like replacing michael jordan with honey boo boo.
    Show has become a far leftist political platform instead of what used to be a comedy show.
    Poor black this, poor blacks that… heard it all before and as a fellow black man i'm deeply ashamed for obviously and shamelessly pushing the far left agenda without ever thinking America might be better off with everyone working together instead of setting up premises which make people want to choose a side.
    The division has never been bigger and it's thanks to shows like these, excusing the unaccountable.
    Always pointing fingers, always complaining… never coming up with a solution of any kind.
    It's like you folk are addicted to complaining.

  30. Interesting, calling people snowflakes on the right is a bit ironic, very, very ironic. This is self-projection at its finest.

  31. I say every time they want to fire shots at her someone should play Trump's tapes calling women fat and ugly and wanting to grab them by the P#ssy. Flint still has dirty water but these people are crying over being roasted at a dinner–Bitch, please!

  32. Michele Wolf isn't successful because her acts are visceral. The real joke was on her and how her career has tanked ….on the bright side she will always have gigs at the hate fests hosted by the left.

  33. wow, Michelle Malkin with her Degree in Music Majored English(WTF is this? did she master the pronunciation of the words Fender Stratocaster and Stradivarius violin?), and no one stopped the filth that came out of her Trumpwashed mouth. how many books did they have to buy themselves to get the title of "best-selling author"?

  34. Sara Sanders is So hypocritical Her and other Trump supporters got mad at Michelle Wolf because she made a joke stating β€œ Sarah Sanders is so resourceful that she gathers facts burns them into ash that’s why she has a Smokey eye β€œ then when the president actually Insulted those women and accused the former president of being the founder of isis . Sarah said β€œit was a joke you guys need to get a sense of humor β€œ πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ it’s crazy how she doesn’t see how Hypocritical that is .

  35. Why should Michelle Wolf be concerned about being respectful to authority at a what's supposed to be a roast? Everybody knows the POTUS
    clearly has a lack of respect for WOMEN, AFRICAN-AMERICANS, MEXICANS OR CONGRESS at that matter.

  36. Conservatives and leftists have paper thin skin. Neither of them can take a joke 🀦🀣 it's funny watching them fight. More entertainment for us logical folk.

  37. Lol I'm so late to comment but gotta love Trevor man. That intelligent humor that appeals to the rapidly depleting number of people blessed with common sense and critical thinking!!
