Comedians have long targeted presidents in their comedic scripts.
It used to be, however, that the jabs were light and the candor of the comedian was friendly, maybe borderline insulting.
That’s changed now that Trump is in office. Now, comedians seem to believe he’s fair game for all kinds of terrible/lewd/crude jokes.
This was especially evident when comedian Michelle Wolf hosted the White House correspondents dinner a few months ago. The correspondent’s dinner is filled with members of the media on both the left and the right and has been one of the few places where comedians could go after any President…right in front of his face.
But Wolf took it to another level entirely when she “roasted” the president.
This included making jokes about pedophilia, pornography, orgasming and more.
Well, come to find out, that kind of behavior isn’t well tolerated.
Even by the left (not because the left doesn’t enjoy these things, but because there’s no money made in selling trash).
Wolf, who has recently been given her own TV show on Netflix, recently found out she’d be losing that coveted spot on the “boob tube.”
It turns out that her show on Netflix was pulled after just a few short months on the air.
As the Blaze writes:
Her [Michelle Wolf]show, “The Break with Michelle Wolf,” premiered in May. The 33-year-old had then joked that she would be airing “the types of jokes my former bosses would tell me we couldn’t do on TV.”
Netflix confirmed to Fox News that they would not be ordering more episodes of the show.
Wolf was widely criticized for her jokes at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner that targeted White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
“I’m never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee Sanders, you know?” Wolf said. “Is it Sarah Sanders? Is it Sarah Huckabee Sander? Is it Cousin Huckabee? Is it Auntie Huckabee Sanders?”
“Like, what is Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women?” she added. “I know… Aunt Coulter.”
This is quite surprising considering NetFlix is filled with vile TV shows containing some of the banalest plot lines imaginable.
But, at the end of the day, NetFlix is a business, and it would appear there’s no market for an acerbic and controversial comedian like Wolf.
Her frequent jokes about incest, pedophilia, and abortion may have won her some fans, but support for her kind of comedy is obviously not worth spending money on…
Or listening to ever…
