    Most of the jokes were meh up until 2 minute part of the below video. You tell me if that was ok.

    These shitheads sign up these comedians than act shocked when they do their thing. It's like when Gilbert Gottfried got fired by AFLAC for his joke tweet about the Japanese tsunami. Howard Stern said on his show "Hey AFLAC, you hired Gilbert Gottfried!"

    And I loved her opening joke: "Like a porn star says when she's about to have sex with Trump, 'Let's get this over with.'" :D

    Good! I'm still not crazy about the newsreaders who act all offended.

    I stopped it after 30 seconds. There is comedy, there is roasting, then there is cruelty. What I saw was about 3 steps past cruelty. I have never wanted to forcefully insert an industrial-grade cattle prod into a person and fire it up to 11. Until I saw that.

    I think without even the insults, the abortion joke? I mean, how does one joke about that and I am pro-choice?

    It always ends badly for one when the only way they can justify their worth as a person is to verbally degrade others with malicious intent. Try to find malice in any WHCD prior to Trump. Now malicious is the standard.

    We probably saw the end of hiring comedians to give those speeches.

    A little fly for the ointment:

    Black comedian on a black comedian. I mean, if there's one group of people who wipe each other asses, it's blacks in the US (unlike Africa).

    Every mention I've seen of her race is that she's white.

    No, Michelle Wolf isn't Black, but after her savage takedown at White House Correspondents' Dinner, we'll trade Kanye for her in the racial draft - theGrio

    Well I'll eat my shoes. Doesn't matter to me but this is horseshit:

    I said she burns facts and uses the ash to create a *perfect* smoky eye.

    She didn't say facts, she said FAT.

    I'm no fan of Wolf, but it sure sounds like "facts" to me, and I have concluded that this joke was not about Sanders's appearance. Besides, how do you get ash to create a perfect smokey eye with burned fat, rather than burned facts? (First 15-16 seconds below)

    Fair enough. I guess the last standing thing that still pisses me off is the abortion "joke".

    how do you get ash to create a perfect smokey eye with burned fat, rather than burned facts?


    You are asking a former Siberian how fat can be burned and utilized? See, I didn't hear this as a dietary fat but animal fat. You can make so much shit out of animal fat it's not even funny.

    No, I was asking how fat, unlike facts on paper, can be turned into ash. Just another indicator that she said “facts.” :)

    Yeah, she really stepped in it to joke about abortion, but it felt like more of a setup for her punchline about the anti-abortion congressman who encouraged his mistress to get an abortion.

    If you think she said facts then I believe you. I don't view you as a biased person pulling to either side. As far as fat in to make up? I guess that would be the joke. But there's nothing here apparently.

    I didn't watch it. I just don't find any of these comedians funny.
