Michelle Wolf compares First Daughter Ivanka Trump to herpes and cancer, faces severe backlash
Besmirched comedian Michelle Wolf is at it again, this time drawing a crude comparison between Ivanka Trump and a sexually transmitted disease
Disgraced comedian Michelle Wolf is at it again. Lacking in creative quotient, Wolf resorted to making jokes at the expense of various White House officeholders at this year's White House Correspondents’ Dinner. After targeting White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Counselor Kellyanne Conway and several others in the Trump administration, Wolf was made the highlight of a new GOP campaign advertisement that slammed the "unhinged" political left as we inch towards the 2018 midterm elections.
Unabashedly refusing to apologize for her crass jokes about Sanders, Wolf stooped to a new low this week. Appearing on Netflix's The Break, she doubled down on Rep. Maxine Waters calls for violence against Trump administration officials in public, providing liberals with a number of off-color lines if they were to take Waters' advice seriously and publicly confront them.
While agreeing with Waters, Wolf suggested that anti-Trump protestors should step up their game.
In the said Netflix episode, Wolf mocked the GOP's calls for civility in politics and went on to brazenly attack Ivanka Trump, comparing the President’s eldest daughter to cancer and a sexually-transmitted infection, among other comments.
In her monologue, the comedian referenced an incident in which another discredited comedian, Samantha Bee, called the first daughter a “feckless c**t” on her TBS show 'Full Frontal'.
“You can’t just casually harass these people; you have to insult them specifically,” Wolf joked. “C**t doesn’t hurt them — it’s on their vision board. You have to make sure your words are life-alteringly hurtful.”
Although Wolf wanted to suggest some effective ways to insult officials in the Trump administration, her primary target was Ivanka, who she repeatedly insulted with sub-standard jibes.
“If you see Ivanka on the street, first, call her Tiffany,” Wolf said. “This will devastate her. Then talk to her in terms she’ll understand. Say, ‘Ivanka, you’re like vaginal mesh. You were supposed to support women, but now you have blood all over you and you’re the center of a thousand lawsuits.’ "
While she aspired to target as many officials as she could in her limited segment, she kept interrupting herself with fresh libels against Ivanka. Others targeted in her derogatory speech included Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and EPA administrator Scott Pruitt.
She compared Ivanka to Yaz, a contraceptive pill that was banned due to carrying a higher risk of blood clots. “Oh wait, real quick, I thought of another one for Ivanka,” Wolf said after bringing up Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. " ‘Ivanka, you’re like that birth control pill Yaz. At first, it seemed like it’d be really cool and helpful, but you need to be immediately recalled.’ "
It did not stop there. Wolf targeted a number of famous Republican leaders but kept jumping back to Ivanka.
She suggested that if one happens to meet Ivanka on the street, she should be addressed such: “Say, ‘Hey girl, do your legs hurt? Because you’ve been running afoul of government ethics all year.’ And that will satisfy you more than it will hurt her, so follow it up with something like, ‘Is your nickname herpes? Because you’re not necessarily the most dangerous person in the administration, but you’re very unpleasant, totally incurable, and you always show up when we’re about to get f***ed.’ “
Wolf could not resist shooting a final barb towards Ivanka as her segment concluded. “This has been Mind Your Manners,” Wolf said. “Remember, discourse is the path to change, and Ivanka is the prettiest tumor in a swiftly moving cancer.”
While it is a mystery as to why the disreputed Wolf repeatedly lands comic gigs in the biggest shows on mainstream media, one can easily say she is no stranger to controversy. During her distasteful segment at the 2018 White House Correspondents’ Dinner held in April, she attacked Ivanka in her polarizing speech, comparing her to “an empty box of tampons”. “She was supposed to be an advocate for women, but it turns out she’s about as helpful to women as an empty box of tampons. She’s done nothing to satisfy women. So I guess, like father like daughter.”
The audience could distinctly be heard, mumbling uncomfortably at her words, to which she added: “Oh, you don’t think he’s good in bed. Come on! She does clean up nice, though. Ivanka cleans up nice. She’s the diaper genie of the administration. On the outside, she looks sleek, but the inside, it’s still full of s**t.”
At the time, she did not miss the opportunity to criticize Sanders, who she likened to Aunt Lydia from The Handmaid’s Tale. Aunt Lydia's character in the story forces women to accept their fates by indoctrinating them with beliefs of the new society.
“And of course we have Sarah Huckabee Sanders. We are graced with her presence. I love you as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid’s Tale — Mike Pence if you haven’t seen it you’d love it,” Wolf said.
“Every time Sarah steps up to the podium I get excited because I’m not sure what we’re going to get, a press briefing, a bunch of lies or divided into softball teams. It’s shirts and skin and this time don’t be such a little b**ch Jim Acosta.
“I really, really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful. Like, she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye. Like, maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies. It’s probably lies.”
A class act, to say the least.
