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."

TVNLComment:  Those reacting to Wolf's jokes should keep in mind that Trump, as recently as last night, consistently tells his base that the media hates them.  He has done more to destroy freedom of the press than any president before him.Wolf is a comedian who is the center of attention because she was a bit over the top with her raunchy jokes.  That's what comedians do.  Trump's attacks on the press are NOT what presidents do. It's what Donald Trump, in his crude, despotic attempt to control journalists, does.  Grow up, those who are offended by Wolf.  Be offended by the man who would be king.
