We’ve Never Seen James Woods as Angry as He Got for Sarah
James Woods is not having any of the Sarah Huckabee-Sanders bashing that took place last Saturday night at the White House Correspondents Dinner.
“Disgusting, Cruel, Inappropriate, Vile, Embarrassing!”
The performance was indeed nauseating, and everyone, including many card-carrying members of the mainstream media, were in agreement about that.
Michelle Wolf was the headliner at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, where she mercilessly mocked Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ appearance in between jokes about how, when it comes to abortion, one shouldn’t “knock it ’til you try it.”
According to westernjournal.com:
Comedian Michelle Wolf became more famous after Saturday night than she was before, much the same way the Hindenburg was a lot more famous after May 6, 1937 than it was before.
Wolf was the headliner at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, where she mercilessly mocked Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ appearance in between jokes about how, when it comes to abortion, one shouldn’t “knock it ’til you try it.”
There were plenty of people distancing themselves from Wolf’s performance — including the head of the White House Correspondents’ Association, who said the evening’s program “was meant to offer a unifying message about our common commitment to a vigorous and free press while honoring civility, great reporting and scholarship winners, not to divide people.
“Unfortunately, the entertainer’s monologue was not in the spirit of that mission,” WHCA President Margaret Taley said, according to Fox News.
“My guess is that James Woods won’t be accepting that apology.”
Woods has been known for venting his spleen on Twitter occasionally. However, after Saturday night’s performance, the actor went off on a tweetstorm like we’ve never seen from him before.
Woods began by responding to a Matt Drudge tweet wondering why neither Sanders nor Kellyanne Conway walked out of the “festivities.”
Woods then went after Taley and her “apology.”
He also predicted that Wolf’s clanging, misogynist routine would be great campaign fodder for the GOP.
New York Times reporter Maggie Haber called out Wolf, but Woods questioned the sincerity of her statement.
Woods closed by giving Wolf a taste of her own medicine.
That’s about as harsh as you can get. One can imagine former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is giving Woods a call this morning, first to thank him for defending his daughter, and then to ask Woods if his blood pressure’s a bit high.
While Woods may have gone scorched earth here, Wolf deserves to be criticized. And, to be fair, Woods was far from the first person to realize that her weak-sauce attempt at running a Stephen Colbert-like stunt was misguided and hateful.”
