Stand-up comedian and former Daily Show contributor Michelle Wolf used Saturday's Trump-free White House Correspondents’ Dinner to blast Democrats, Republicans, and members of the press alike. But she saved some of her most pointed criticism for Ivanka Trump, Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and the president.
Wolf immediately dug into Trump, who skipped the event in favor of a rally in Michigan.
“Like a porn star says when she’s about to have sex with a Trump, let’s get this over with,” Wolf said, as she took the podium with a nod to Trump’s alleged affair with Stormy Daniels.
After more barbs directed at Trump’s wealth, or lack thereof, Wolf took aim at Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway.
“Kellyanne Conway has the perfect last name for what she does: Conway,” Wolf joked. “It’s like if my name was Michelle Jokes Frizzy Hair Small Tits. You guys have to stop putting Kellyanne on your shows. If you don’t give her a platform, she has nowhere to lie. It’s like that old saying: If a tree falls in the woods, how do we get Kellyanne under that tree. I’m not suggesting she gets hurt. Just stuck.”
While other members of the Trump family caught some fire, Wolf got off several jokes at Ivanka’s expense.
“She was supposed to be an advocate for women,” Wolf said of Ivanka Trump. “But it turns out, she’s about as helpful to women as an empty box of tampons.”
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders ended up being on the receiving end of one of Wolf's harshest jokes.
“I’m never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” Wolf said. “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?”

Tonight’s #WHCD was a disgrace
Sanders’ predecessor, Sean Spicer, took to Twitter to voice his displeasure to a clearly unbothered Wolf. The absent Trump also chimed in to call the WHCD a "bust."
