Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has finally responded to comedian Michelle Wolf’s attacks at the White House Correspondents Awards dinner.
Appearing on Fox & Friends, Huckabee Sanders said Wolf’s comments – including that Sanders ‘burns facts and uses the ash to create a perfect smokey eye – “says a whole lot more about her than it does about me.”
“I hope that [Wolf] can find some of the same happiness that we all have, because I think she may need a little bit more of that in her life because the rest of us here are doing great,” she said. Sanders added that she was putting the comments behind her and just carrying on with her job.
‘The people that were my friends before that evening are my friends today,” she said. “I’m going to continue doing the job that I came here to do.” .
Wolf has been under fire by both the Left and Right for her jokes at the WHCA dinner, with even the association’s president claiming the remarks were off target.
Wolf has stood fast and claimed she has no regrets.
