How about this joke from Michelle Wolf?

"Trump is so broke... (How broke is he?)

He had to borrow money from the Russians, is now susceptible to blackmail, and will be responsible for the collapse of the republic."

Doesn't sound like anybody here believes this joke has a ring of truth to it...


I believe you've hit upon facts, not a joke. It has never been the least bit funny.

I don't like Michelle Wolfe's bit. I thought it was needlessly cruel and cringeworthy, a personal attack is a personal attack.

It is worth noting that all these conservatives loved it when Trump didn't have time for PC and was attacking reporters by name, making fun of handicapped people, talking about grabbing women by the P***sy, but that was all fun and games, called Obama a "sick guy" - but the right gets the vapors and clutches their pearls if a comedian does it.

I don't like it when anyone does it. Comedy isn't funny when it comes to humiliating one person - as she intended to do with Huckabee-Sanders. But, then I started out complaining about Trump doing it years ago, "she'd do ANYTHING for money" ...

It's ok if Trump does it, not okay for Wolf.

The quote is wrong.
"Trump is so broke he had to borrow money from the Russians and now he’s compromised and susceptible to blackmail and possibly responsible for the collapse of the Republic. Yay, it’s a fun game!

Yes, that has a ring of truth to it.

After seeing snippets all day on different news shows, I actually wanted to look at her whole routine, to be fair. I looked for a video and realized I couldn't listen to her voice for the 20 minutes that it lasted. She has the type of voice that is like fingernails on chalkboard to me. So I found a transcript of her full routine and read that instead.

To be honest she did give the press and the Dems a little ribbing but she didn't call them out directly by name, like she did Conway, Sanders, and Pence. Some of her stuff was really funny. She could have edited one or two jokes down just a little and essentially kept the main part of the joke and it wouldn't have been considered so mean spirited. It actually would have been funnier if she had done that because when she went slightly over that line into meanness it made the jokes fall flat.

Some of her stuff was funny. No doubt about it. If she had pulled back just a little, she would have gotten a lot more laughs.

i really cannot believe the hypocrisy and lack of a sense of humor by the very people that bashed obama for everything from being a muslim, commie to his body odor and lets not forget the way they spoke about michelle..tranny, gorilla, man etc etc and all those things were said on the daily not just at a roast where the whole jist of the event is to be made fun of and take it all in stride but obviously king name caller trump can give but he can't receive. trump is the very epitome of a triggered, snowflake who suddenly wants political correctness, when it comes to taking a jab trump has no chin!!!!!!

i find it hilarious that trump can make fun of everyone and find a non flattering knick name for his political opponents but he has the thinnest skin known to man when it comes to taking a joke, the weasel couldn't even have the guts to show up and take it like a man he had to send sarah to take the punishment for him. what a coward!

Fortunately, I missed it last night...but I WAS able to watch an AWESOME Trump Rally in Michigan.

This morning, however, I WAS treated to some really classy highlights of Carrot top trashing Sarah Sanders.
Mandatory Sarah Sanders FAT joke?---CHECK.
Mandatory Sarah Sanders is RACIST joke?...CHECK.
For HER part...Sanders handled the unfunny Leftist vomiting ignorance on her with stoic class...but it was cringe-worthy to watch.

It struck me that, by the looks on their faces,...many of the Press in the audience might actually have looked ashamed of that exchange.
Perhaps I'm wrong...and they were merely experiencing mass spontaneous orgasm.


Now...I'm wondering how everyone, especially our Progressive friends here on ATS, felt about this last night.
FUNFEST...or HATEFEST?

Did Sarah Sanders get what she deserved?
...or did Carrot Top go too far?


It obviously wasn't Carrot Top but apparently several posters fell for that.
Please point out the part where she made a fat or racist remark about SHS?

"We are graced with Sarah’s presence tonight. I have to say I’m a little star-struck. I love you as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid’s Tale. Mike Pence, if you haven’t seen it, you would love it. Every time Sarah steps up to the podium I get excited, because I’m not really sure what we’re going to get — you know, a press briefing, a bunch of lies or divided into softball teams. “It’s shirts and skins, and this time don’t be such a little bitch, Jim Acosta!” I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful. She burns facts, and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye. Like maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies. It’s probably lies. And I’m never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee Sanders, you know? Is it Sarah Sanders, is it Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is it Cousin Huckabee, is it Auntie Huckabee Sanders? Like, what’s Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women? Oh, I know. Aunt Coulter."

She did "fat shame" Chris Christie:
Republicans are easy to make fun of, you know, it’s like shooting fish in a Chris Christie.

She made fun of McConnell:
Mitch McConnell isn’t here tonight, he had a prior engagement, he’s finally getting his neck circumcised. Mazel.

And Paul Ryan:
Paul Ryan also couldn’t make it. Of course, he’s already been circumcised. Unfortunately, while they were down there, they also took his balls. Yeah, bye Paul. Great acting, though, in that video.

Note: None of them are clutching their pearls over it.

She did call Trump a racist:
"Trump is a racist though. He loves white nationalists, which is a weird term for a Nazi. Calling a Nazi a white nationalist is like calling a pedophile a kid friend, or Harvey Weinstein a ladies’ man..."

I thought she was amusing but not as funny as some of the past comedians there. Trump sent SHS to it and she displayed no sense of humor. She needs to lighten up, it was a roast.

For those looking for balance, she also went after the press and some Democrats:
Democrats are harder to make fun of because you guys don’t do anything. People think you might flip the House and Senate this November, but you guys always find a way to mess it up. You’re somehow going to lose by 12 points to a guy named Jeff Pedophile Nazi Doctor. Oh, he’s a doctor?

I watch Morning Joe every morning. We now know Mika and Joe are engaged. Congratulation you guys, it’s like when a #MeToo works out.

Rachel Maddow. We cannot forget about Rachel Maddow. She’s the Peter Pan of MSNBC, but instead of never going up, she never gets to the point. Watching Rachel Maddow is like going to Target — you went in for milk but left with shampoo, candles, and the entire history of the Byzantine Empire. I didn’t need this.

If you are truly offended by any of the above, then the problem is uniquely yours and anyone trying to tell you that you should be offended is conning you.

it was a roast not an attack!! if you can't take the heat don't call people "low energy" "lying ted" "pocahontas" "sloppy steve" %90 of his tweets are "roasts" on people that don't worship him!!!

remember it was a roast and they were supposed to make fun of him and his administration, the coward couldn't take the name calling and neither can his followers. boo freaking hoo.

Maybe you should watch some Roasts from the past. I'd suggest the classic Dean Martin Roasts of yesteryear. There is a difference between what we saw and what a Roast is.

Thank you for the transcript.

The part about Sanders started off OK... the softball thing sounds like good-natured humor. The problem comes when she outright calls Sanders a liar. Then she attacks Sanders' ancestry with that Uncle Tom mess. That's overboard, because it was just a hateful jab.

Christie... I almost laughed out loud reading that one. Everyone, even Christie, knows he's overweight. That's just ribbing.

McConnell's neck needing circumcised? Funny. He does have a lot of loose skin around his neck.

Ryan... I considered it pushing the line but not crossing it. There's some truth in him not having the 'balls' to push through certain things.

Calling Trump a racist was too far. He's not a racist.

Democrats in general... yeah, funny. The Ryan joke should have been toward Republicans in general, but oh well.

I didn't get the reference in the Morning Joe bit. Old fogey here. I didn't get all of the Sanders references either.

Maddow... yeah, she does ramble some, so that one worked.

But this:

If you are truly offended by any of the above, then the problem is uniquely yours and anyone trying to tell you that you should be offended is conning you.

No one is telling me how to feel, to start. I am quite capable of making up my own mind on issues, thank you very much. If I say I think a joke was over the top, that means I think the joke is over the top. It does not mean some idiot on TV told me to think it was over the top. If you think that is how people make up their minds, then I feel sorry for you for not being able to make your own decisions without some idiot on TV helping you out, bless your little heart.

Secondly, if you will bother to attempt comprehension of my explanations above, you will notice that certain things that have some basis in truth and are not just more hate being slung, I find humorous. Sanders' ancestry is not one of those; I have no idea what her ancestry is and I doubt you or the excuse for a comedian do either. It is irrelevant to the job she is doing.

Calling ANYONE a racist is NOT FUNNY. You want to call me a snowflake because I don't agree with your personal insults into my world view? Stay behind your keyboard. In the real world, that has become a serious threat. You might as well say "I'm going to sue Trump for everything he owns, erase everything he has ever done, and drag his name through the mud until he gets buried in an unmarked grave because no one ever wants to read his name again, all while destroying the lives of anyone who has ever associated with him." That is simply not cool. Before someone launches that kind of an attack, I want to see freakin' evidence of actions taken against a people of a specific culture/background... otherwise it is slander.

That's the problem. You've worn out the racism tag by using it as an attack and destroying lives over it. It no longer means someone who hates a certain group of people; now it only means "I don't like what you said and I'm not smart enough to actually tell you why so I'm going to try and destroy you."

The condition is called, "Hate Induced Confusion".

This will never be reported by the "Good ole boy's club" (aka Liberal MSM), but CNN President Jeff Zucker has just been exposed as COLLUDING with foreign governments...for a price.

One person is the president of the united states, the other is a comedian.

I laugh at the hypocrisy of claiming a comedian is being disrespectful while the president does the same thing and his supporters call everyone snowflake if they talk about the obvious shift in political discourse once Trump got involved.

No one on here even knew who Michelle Wolf was when Trump started making fun of disabled people, moving on women like a bitch, comparing the size of his d+ck to others, hurling insults at former prisoners of war... the list just goes on and on. Not to mention the right absolutely skewered Obama and his wife every day for 8 years... calling her an ape, a man, saying he was a gay socialist kenyan muslim america hater who was coming for your guns.

The truth is Trump and some of his followers are super thin skinned but they call everyone else snowflakes.

I think Millenial women had the best time of their life - I guess they stopped by on the way to another "We hate white men but beaver is OK" rally.
