By now most people reading this have probably heard that there was quite a bit of controversy following Michelle Wolf’s performance at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Personally, I didn’t care for it. While I don’t feel sorry for anyone she targeted (after all, they’re just jokes), I’m also someone who doesn’t believe some of them were good representations of what being a progressive is about.
Basically I don’t believe that we, as progressives, should stoop to the level of those we oppose simply because they seem to lack any sense of morals, values, or decency.
We’re better than that.
I know not everyone on the left will agree with me on that point, and that’s fine. It’s simply my opinion on the matter.
That said, I couldn’t help but laugh at Donald Trump and his supporters whining about some of the jokes that were said, attacking Wolf as a “disgrace” and “trashy.”
Are you kidding me?
The same people who constantly call anti-Trump people “snowflakes” for pointing out all the things that prove he’s a terrible person — the same people who support a petty, vulgar lowlife who constantly attacks others, often using childish names to describe them — have the nerve to criticize someone else for distasteful remarks?
Again — are you freaking kidding me?
The same clowns who support and defend someone who told people to look for the non-existent sex tape of a former Miss Universe and accused MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski of bleeding from a face-lift are calling a comedian’s jokes “trashy,” a “disgrace,” and “disgusting” while condemning her as a terrible person who should be ashamed of herself.
This is another example of the unprecedented hypocrisy and snowflake nature of your typical Trump supporters. These are people who call others “weak” who, when Trump’s criticized or attacked, are some of the biggest crybabies I’ve ever seen.
That makes sense because Donald Trump, himself, is the exact same way. He’s a typical bully who loves attacking others, often in extremely personal ways, yet whenever people push back against him he rushes to whine about how “nasty” and “unfair” his critics are while portraying himself as the victim.
If you’re someone who wants to feel as if Wolf’s jokes crossed a line at some point during her performance, that’s fine. I agree that some of them did and I think it’s important that people on the left don’t fall into a trap of constantly acting like Trump and those who defend him. As I said earlier, as progressives and reasonable Americans, I believe we’re better than that.
However, what you cannot do is attack Wolf who, again, is a comedian, while also being someone who supports Donald Trump — a disgusting, vile bottom-feeder who’s said and done far worse things about other people while being “president” of the United States!!
It really is astonishing to sit here and think that there are millions of people who hold a comedian to higher standards than the orange buffoon they are proud to call their “president.”
