Comedian Michelle Wolf caused an uproar in Washington after she delivered a searing 20-minute set that took aim at President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump rips correspondents" dinner, "filthy" Michelle Wolf White House Correspondents" Association: Michelle Wolf's routine "not in the spirit" of our mission Trump to meet with crew of deadly Southwest Airlines flight MORE, Vice President Pence, Ivanka TrumpIvana (Ivanka) Marie TrumpTrump rips correspondents' dinner, "filthy' Michelle Wolf White House Correspondents' Association: Michelle Wolf's routine "not in the spirit' of our mission Tech relishes role as Trump antagonist MORE, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the media, several Democratic politicians and others.

Her performance should not have come as a surprise as she pointed out at the event, telling the White House Correspondents' Association, "Shoulda done your research".

Margaret Talev, head of the White House Correspondents' Association, said the night was "meant to offer a unifying message about our common commitment to a vigorous and free press while honouring the civility, great reporting and scholarship winners, not to divide people".

But Mr Trump has boycotted the event since winning power, choosing this year instead to hold a rally for supporters in MI. It's become a celebrity-driven social event on the D.C. calendar.

Scores of news outlets pay for tables at the annual fundraising dinner. "This dinner is for journalists". People involved in the discussions said executives from Politico, CBS News and The Washington Post were among those urging the change. Saying Wolf was vulgar and attacked another woman for her looks is a smoke screen - smokier than Sanders's smoky eye shadow. "Kudos to the comedians and anyone with the courage to speak her or his mind".

He added, "We're seeking a reset, a re-examination of the format from top to bottom". Wolf, 32, made her talk show realm debut as a "Late Night with Seth Meyers" writer in 2014 before landing a contributing gig on Trevor Noah's "Daily Show" two years later. "Actually, we'll go [to] somebody else this time, John".

Fox News reporter Ed Henry on Sunday said Sanders deserves an apology.

Ravens Add Orlando Brown, Mark Andrews In Draft's Second Day
The 6-foot-1, 236-pound Young posted 110 tackles, 8.5 for loss, one sack, and three passes deflected in his senior season with UCLA.

But in recent years, the WHCA has had trouble attracting top-flight names.

"Mitchell's expression reflected that of a certain clubby, elite Washington, a place in which insiders view one another as people who have to do their jobs even if they don't like everything their boss says or does, and therefore should be respected and excused". Are we really this clueless about how most human beings react to stuff like this?

"The pay is chicken feed", said one journalist active in the WHCA. It's good for them, not us. Remember: The comedian's roast of the room is the cap of the evening.

Trump has been urging voters to support Republicans for Congress as a way of advancing his agenda.

During a joint press conference with Nigerian President Muhammandu Buhari, President Trump seemed to be leaning toward the DMZ for his highly anticipated and historic summit with North Korea leader Kim Jong-Un.

Among options under discussion by the WHCA are replacing the comic with a musical performer, although that, too, has proved problematic in the past. But reporters who were there said Schlapp was still lingering around at the hotel where the event was hosted, and he was later spotted at an after-party event hosted by MSNBC.
