The last host of the dinner, the controversial Michelle Wolf, is unhappy with the reform — and called the group ‘cowards’
The White House Correspondents’ Association made an announcement regarding its dinner next year — and a former host, Michelle Wolf, is not happy.
The comedian (pictured above left), who performed at the event back in April, was not pleased to learn the event is taking a new turn.
Next year, the group will not have a comedian as host of the event.
Instead, the group invited historian Ron Chernow, a 2011 Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer who has written about prominent American figures such as George Washington, Alexander Hamilton and John D. Rockefeller.
In response to this announcement, Wolf tweeted, “The @wcha are cowards. The media is complicit. And I could not be prouder.”
Controversy surrounding the former “Daily Show” writer’s performance last time around could be the reason the association may have come up with this new direction.
Wolf viciously attacked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders last year as she sat right at the dais.
The attacks caused a great deal of controversy and made the event — which President Donald Trump did not attend — look classless. Some people actually walked out early because of Wolf’s comments. MORE HERE
