I had no problems with Wolf, what she said and how she said it.  Sure, some of it didn't get laughs - but was pretty much dead on target.

 

Some people didn't/don't like Lenny Bruce, George Carlin, Bill Hicks, Richard Prior, Bill Maher, Dick Gregory, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Gilbert Gottfried, Lewis Black, Dick Gregory  etc - I've always liked them a lot. - will never forget Dick Gregory's comment about MLK stamps -  “I am really enjoying the new Martin Luther King Jr, stamp. Just think about all those white bigots, licking the backside of a black man.”

Were you talking about Wolf or Trump? 


I think you know since Trump wasn't there and he said "she" for the leftmost readers.


Ah, Thank you. I did miss that nuance.  A natural mistake,  it was a post about Wolf which also very accurately described Trump. I appreciate the clarification.

IS THIS WHERE COMEDY IS GOING???

Message 26 of 26

I believe in the First Amendment.

I believe that "SPANKY" Trump and his family were involved in illegal activities during the campaign.

I believe the the "SPANKY" Trump Administration has been involved in illegal activities since day one.

I believe that "SPANKY" Trump lies, exaggerates, and misdirects.

I believe "SPANKY" Trump's Press Secretary does the same.

I believe "SPANKY" Trump to be wholly unqualified for his position.

I believe "SPANKY" Trump purpose in his Cabinet appointments has been to reverse progress.

I believe "SPANKY" Trump is either thought of, on the international stage, as the court jester or a dangerous man.

I frankly believe that "SPANKY" Trump is the worst President ever elected and things are getting worse.

 

With that said, I like comedy.

I like satire.

I like satire with a cutting edge like that practiced by Jon Stewart, Trevor Noah, and Stephen Colbert.

I like satirical skits like those of Saturday Night Live, SCTV, 2nd City, and many other groups, past and present.

 

BUT I DIDN'T LIKE MICHELLE WOLF, THE FEATURED COMEDIAN AT THE CORRESPONDENT'S DINNER.

 

I found her to be too raunchy, too gross, too vulgar, and too foul-mouthed so as to not being comedic to me; but rather being improper and in bad taste.

 

It is not that I don't agree with some of the "subjects" she dealt with(like an RNC official who was against abortion until he impregnated his Playboy Bunny girlfriend); I just thought her delivery went too far.

 

So, from you liberals like me, and those of you from the other side, what do you think?????
