Big Name Comedians Rush In Wolf’s Defense After She Faced Huge Backlash From The Media

After comedian Michelle Wolf faced huge backlash for her shameful monologue at the White House Correspondents’ dinner, many famous comedians such as Jimmy Kimmel and Kathy Griffin have shown their support and aligned behind her.

All this happened while almost every American considered Wolf’s jokes to be one-sided and criticized her for being incredibly cruel to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.

Jimmy Kimmel posted a tweet saying that Wolf was funny and recommended that the association should hire a juggler for next years dinner.

‘Dear, “the media” – @michelleisawolf was FUNNY. Hire a juggler next year.’ said Kimmel on Twitter.

Kathy Griffin, who was at the dinner, made a series of tweets complementing Wolf’s set and saying that she ‘took no prisoners’ and went after everyone, ‘as it should be.’

Griffin also added that Wolf was hired to do a roast, so she did, and she did it ‘by pushing the line we force people to think differently.’

She went on to say that President Trump should be held to the same standard as Wolf and dismissed calls for the association and the comedian to apologize, labelling them “absurd.”

Griffin also claimed that the media is upset over Wolf’s performance because she ‘told the truth about them last night and the role they played in allowing Trump’s rise.’

Kumail Nanjiani also tweeted on the subject, but didn’t mention Wolf’s name, saying that the administration is being labelled ‘heroes’ for remaining in their seats when they’re called ‘out on what they do.’

Rosie O’Donnell, the comedian who hasn’t been shy about her feelings about our President, called Wolf’s performance a ‘brilliant job’ and explained that ‘truth-telling is required’ when a comedian is roasting someone.

Film and television creator and comedian Judd Apatow agreed with Rosie O’Donnell’s tweet saying that Wolf’s performance was ‘brilliant’ and argued that the WHCD is the time to ‘call out the madness, cruelty, and corruption.’

Late Night TV host Seth Meyers also praised Wolf — who, unlike many others in Washington, accomplished what she set out to do while staying true to herself.

Last Sunday night, White House Correspondents’ Association President Margaret Talev issued a statement saying that Wolf’s monologue was ‘not in the spirit of our mission.’

Aside from the comedians listed above, a large portion of Americans were disgusted by Wolf’s performance at the dinner. She just went too far.
