Saturday night at the 2018 White House Correspondents' dinner, Michelle Wolf took to the stage and quickly started roasting many of the White House Correspondents' and President Trump. 

Michelle Wolf was particularly hard on White House Press Secretary; Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ appearance and job performance. 

Mike Pintek said, “Everybody is outraged, everybody’s panties are in a twist, especially from the right, they are all upset about this comedian that hardly anyone has ever heard of.”

Mike Pintek didn’t listen to Michelle Wolf’s speech, but read the transcript of it and said he laughed out loud, reading most of it.  But what bothered Mike and was offensive were the vulgarities.  “The “P” word, the “F” bombs, the “S” word, I found these vulgarities unnecessary.”

CBS News Washington Correspondent, Bill Rehkopf was at the Correspondents’ dinner and told the Mike Pintek Show, “I just thought it was crude, this is just my personal opinion, but I just thought it went to a depth of crudeness that we hadn’t seen before and it just didn’t seem to fit the level of dignity that the event should have had.”

Bill Rehkopf also said, “When you were in the room and it was happening it was very cringe worthy, to the point where a lot of people were making an effort to go up to her (Sarah Huckabee Sanders) and saying sorry that she had to sit through that.”

Did you find what Michelle Wolf was saying offensive?
