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

April 29, 2018 9:11 a.m.

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.”
