Twitter Reacts to Michelle Wolf’s ‘Hateful’ Monologue: ‘I Don’t Think We Advanced The Cause of Journalism’

Twitter had A LOT to say about Michelle Wolf as the host of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Wolf was criticized by both mainstream and conservative media for her “hateful and unfunny” monologue.

Several reporters thought this year’s WHCD didn’t “advance the cause of journalism” and it “undermined” what should have been a “meaningful night.” Others praised Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for stomaching the brutal jokes that were said about her.

Former Press Secretary Sean Spicer called it a “disgrace” while Matt Schlapp and his wife Mercedes Schlapp, who serves as the White House Director of Strategic Communications, walked out during Wolf’s monologue.
