    Um, my guess is that someone or several people will be fired after the Michelle Wolf routine. Stunning that someone slipped her past the goalie!

    Dammit.  Forgot it was on.  Just saw a couple jokes..and the end.  Talk about uncomfortable applause.

    Some was funny. Much of it was cringey. Someone didn't do their homework.

    Just watched it on youtube.  It was fantastic from beginning to end.  The Huckster looked like she was going to get up and leave and Kelly Anne looked none too happy.  I found it laugh out loud funny.  I predict Trumpy will be crazy tweeting about this.

    I'll just say I enjoyed it, but partly because I enjoy uncomfortable moments where nobody knows how to react.  I was always that dude that loved blind dates because I liked the weirdness of them.  That comedy routine had its moments, but WOW.  Considering how overall inappropriate the president is, I'm not losing sleep or worrying that she disgraced the president.  If she'd have put forth an act like that during Obama, or either Bush or Reagan or Carter or Ford, I'd have found it offensive.  Fuck Trump and his loathsome shitbag administration.

    If you liked her tonight, she has a pretty good Netflix special that Pam and I laughed our asses off at a couple months ago.

    I'll check it out.  I just re-watched the Correspondence Dinner with Dale.

    Gotta figure the thing that will piss off Trump the most were the jokes about him not being rich. 

    I so loved watching Wolf making true statements/jokes about SHS.  I liked the Pence material, too.  It was all good.

    It was locker room talk. No harm, no foul.

    I didn't watch, but did read some of the comments of Michelle Wolf and found them to be much more mean-spirited than Correspondent Dinners of the past. Even the old Dean Martin roasts left those being roasted laughing.

    Yes.  It was definitely more mean spirited.  I've heard arguments for and against her approach, and both have merit.  This is a mean spirited administration.  Sarah Huckabee is insulting, condescending, mean, and tells lies every time she steps in front of a microphone.  That said, I thought that event was supposed to be silly, funny, and an overall good time.  It might have been a good time for the libs that hate Trump and Sarah, but I'm of the belief that jokes that are cutting but also funny to both sides end up leaving more of a mark.  All this comedy set did was send the tribes running into their corners.

    I certainly won't find it in the bald guy who has an obsession with young Asian girls. I think his kids are more adult than he is.

    Probably.  Then again, I have an 11 yr old kid that's more mature than I am.

    I have two granddaughters, both under six, who make more sense than Kark does.

    Just my 2 cents....and yeah I think Wolf probably went over the top. That said, Fuck Sarah Huckabee, fuck her dad Mike Huckabee for the matter, and fuck KelleyAnne Conway. Bottom line, and call me petty...I'll own it...I just can't dredge up even the slightest shred of sympathy for any of these pathological lying assholes. Mad

    Fuckin' A right, Cream.  Exactly.  Probably not the best venue for that kind of comedy and probably a bit mean spirited, but do i feel sorry for those shitfucks?  Hell to the no!  Nothing she said is any worse than what our president utters almost daily on Twitter or in old clips of him ripping on people.  If the president is saying it, isn't that sort of setting the trend and guidelines?
