Wow. Michelle Wolf's remarks at the White House Correspondents' Dinner , which aired on CSPAN was pretty funny for much of her routine. While there was rarely rip roaring laughter, most of her jokes hit the mark. Some of the shout outs: Reince Priebus (great porn start name), Jake Tapper ( what his orgasm might look like), Rachel Maddow (well, we didn't agree with Wolf's assessment) and Morning Joe (Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough's engagement - "it's like a #MeeToo working out"). All in all it may not make you cry, but it did make you think.
