Michelle Wolf rips Trump over Khashoggi murder

President Donald Trump waves after speaking to the media before leaving the White House in Washington Tuesday Nov. 20 2018 to travel to Florida where he will spend Thanksgiving at Mar-a-Lago

Wolf earlier tweeted the WHCA were "cowards" for its decision to abandon comedy, but in response to Trump labelling her a "so-called" comedian, she hit right back.

The White House Correspondents' Association announced Monday that Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ron Chernow would address its annual dinner next year following the pushback over Wolf's sharply anti-Trump performance last time.

Wolf's performance a year ago was divisive.

Michelle Wolf won't be making any jokes from the podium at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, but last year's host was ready with a one-liner after the president attacked her on Twitter.

Trump said Tuesday that the Saudis' hundreds of billions of dollars in USA military equipment purchases would go to China and Russian Federation if he didn't stand his ground despite evidence of human rights violations. In a video on Facebook before the 2016 election, he cited a long list of what disturbed him about Trump's campaign, calling him a demagogue. 'Good first step in comeback of a dying evening and tradition!

"Maybe I will go?" he added. Presidents usually go to the dinner, but since his election, Trump has declined to attend.




'I have to say I'm a little starstruck, I loved you as Aunt Lydia, ' Wolf told Sanders during the April 28 event. He's not exactly a stranger to show business: His 2004 Hamilton bio became the basis for Lin-Manuel Miranda's smash Broadway musical Hamilton, and 2017's Grant reportedly is getting a movie adaptation - directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by Leonardo DiCaprio.

The comedian's jokes about White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was sitting a few feet away, garnered the most outrage.

"I actually really like Sarah", Wolf said. Like, maybe she's born with it, maybe it's lies. And I couldn't be prouder, ' she tweeted.

"The media is complicit".

Moments later, Wolf made her move.
