Comedian Michelle Wolf delivers searing takedown of Donald Trump after he attacks her on Twitter

At last year's controversial White House Correspondents' Association Dinner comedian Michelle Wolf brought the jokes – and the truth.


Yes, Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a liar. Yes, she is the enabler of an anti-women regime powered by the religious right.

Her jokes about Trump and his administration elicited a good deal of anger from the president, which may have been the point.

On Tuesday, the White House Correspondents' Association announced instead of hiring a comedian, a noted historian will speak.

Trump immediately pounced Tuesday night, teasing he might even attend this year – while once again attacking Wolf.

"Michelle Wolf bombed so badly last year," Trump claimed.

Wolf, who is anything but shy, slapped back with an explosion of truth based on Trump's decision to ignore all the evidence about the assassination of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The President shocked the world, announcing he is standing with Saudi Arabia because oil and (non-existent) arms deals are more important than the life of a journalist.

Here's Wolf's brutal but accurate response:
