WATCH: Michelle Wolf’s Full Performance At White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Comedian Michelle Wolf headlined the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner Saturday night, roasting everyone from White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Wolf’s remarks were so raunchy that Matt Schlapp — chairman of the American Conservative Union and a former Koch Industries vice president — and his wife Mercedes Schlapp — the White House’s director of strategic communications — walked out of the event complaining about “elites mocking all of us.”

Michael Calderone, Politico’s senior media reporter, later noted that both Schlapps attended the NBC/MSNBC after party for the event.

President Donald Trump, who did not attend the dinner for the second year in a row, said he’d heard it was a “very big, boring bust.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
