The White House Correspondents Dinner has become a major point of contention for conservatives who lambast liberals as “snowflakes” one day, and then can’t seem to reconcile a comedy set the next day.
Per an article today in The New York Times, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders came under fire from Trump after the president called her “weak” for failing to walk out during Michelle Wolfe’s “controversial” WHCA monologue.
The controversy, it should be noted, was a line in which Wolf criticized Sanders for her constant barrage of lies on Trump’s behalf and then complemented her for having a “perfect smokey eye.”

“I actually really like Sarah,” Wolf said. “I think she’s very resourceful. But she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye. Like maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies. It’s probably lies.
Of course, had Sanders walked out, she’d have been viewed as pettier than even Trump– which perhaps explains his criticism in the first place.
Wolf, for her part, saw Trump’s ridiculous attack and issued her own blistering response.

While Trump can criticize Sanders for failing to make a childish display on his behalf at the WHCA dinner, it’s most telling that he failed to even show up for the second year in a row.
Perhaps he should consider having enough courage to face some criticism before lambasting those who do. Or, better yet, he could stop doing all that warrants such vehement criticism in the first place.
