White House Correspondents Dinner host Michelle Wolf sparked considerable controversy on Friday night after she attacked the physical appearance of Sarah Sanders and made a graphic joke about abortion.
Wolf’s abortion bit began with an attack on Vice President Mike Pence and his faith.
“Just when you think Trump is awful, you remember Mike Pence,” she said. “Mike Pence is what happens when Anderson Cooper isn’t gay.”
Several reporters, including CNN’s Don Lemon, can be seen on video laughing hysterically.
Then she went after Pence for his Christian beliefs about abortion.
“Mike Pence is also very anti-choice, he thinks abortion is murder,” she said. “First of all, don’t knock it until you try it. And when you do try it, really knock it. You got to get that baby out of there.”

There were laughs and also some uncomfortable groans from the WHCD audience.
“Yeah sure, you can groan all you want. I know a lo of you are very anti-abortion, you know, unless it’s the one you got for your secret mistress,” Wolf said. “It’s fun how values can waver, but good for you.”
The comedian then went on to call Pence a “weirdo” for refusing to meet alone with women who aren’t his wife.
The dismissal of the beliefs of over half the country is arguably why President Donald Trump is now in the White House. Maybe they are working on making sure he wins in 2020 too.
