Comedian Michelle Wolf roasts absent Donald Trump at White House Correspondents' dinner

So what exactly did Wolf say?

These commentators spun the odd narrative that Wolf went after Sanders for her appearance, when in reality Wolf's barbs centered on the press secretary's falsehood-filled performance on the White House podium.

Wolf even took to Twitter on Sunday to confirm that her comments were about Sanders' "despicable behavior".

Many commentators thought her lines about Sanders included inappropriate jabs about her physical appearance.

President Donald Trump took aim at familiar political targets and added a few fresh ones during a campaign-style rally in MI, an Upper Midwest state so crucial in sending him to the White House. "It's probably lies." It was a risque and uneven routine at first met with laughs but often greeted by awkward silence.

President Donald Trump, in a characteristically free-wheeling speech Saturday night, tossed out an unspecified allegation about Montana Democratic Sen. Wolf called the Trump administration out for tearing down democracy.

Both Wolf's fans and detractors seemed to agree that it was a shocking performance, destined to go down in correspondents' dinner history. She noted Trump's decision to avoid the dinner by saying, "It turns out Trump is the one (expletive) you're not allowed to grab". Is it Sarah Sanders, is it Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is it Cousin Huckabee, is it Auntie Huckabee Sanders?

Raptors back in charge after Game 5 win over Wizards
Asked to rate the Wizards' chances of coming back to Toronto for Game 7, Wall said, "I like our chances, we're very confident". The Wizards held a five-point lead in the fourth quarter, but ultimately lost 108-98 to fall behind 3-2 in the series.

She said she regretted that Ms. Wolf's monologue had overshadowed the rest of the evening, but added: "When the entertainer is a comedian - as has been the case for the last 30 years or so - they are often controversial, they are often to some extent polarizing, or provocative, and it's a night about free speech".

"10 years too young to host this event and 20 years too old for Roy Moore". Several cracks about Sarah Huckabee Sanders landed poorly, such as her alleged confusion over how to refer to Sanders" full name: "Is it Sarah Sanders?

The debate is raging about Michelle Wolf's stand-up act at the White House Correspondents' Association's annual dinner.

Trump also broke some news, threatening to shut down the government in the fall over funding for border security and saying a U.S. "And if you're going to profit off of Trump, you should at least give him some money because he doesn't have any". "And yeah, sure, you can groan all you want, I know a lot of you are very anti-abortion, you know, unless it's the one you got for your secret mistress".

As he did previous year, Trump flew to a Republican-friendly district to rally supporters on the same night as the dinner.

Mike Allen, co-founder of news site Axios, said there would be "big debate whether to end the dinner as we know it, and whether some news organisations announce they will no longer attend".

Prominent journalists from the New York Times, CNN, Politico and others took home prestigious awards.
