Comedian takes shots at Trump, staff at journalists' dinner

Comedian Michelle Wolf takes shots aat Trump- For the second year, Donald Trump wasn't in Washington for the White House Correspondents Dinner, but he was the focus of attention as comedian Michelle Wolf leveled pointed attacks at him and his administration.

On Saturday night, the president was returning from a campaign-style rally in Washington Township, Mich., as the former Daily Show was pointing points jabs at him.

"People call Trump names all the time," Wolf said. "And look, I could call Trump a racist, or a misogynist, or xenophobic, or unstable, or incompetent, or impotent. But he's heard all of those and he doesn't care. So tonight, I'm gonna try to make fun of the president in a new way, in a way that I think will really get him. Mr. President, I don't think you're very rich. You might be rich in Idaho, but in New York, you're doing fine."
