Michelle Wolf Claps Back At Mika Brzezinski For Claiming She ‘Humiliated’ Sarah Sanders’ Looks

Following Michelle Wolf’s roasting of White House officials — and the press that covers this administration — on Saturday night, a number of reporters and media figures took to Twitter to do some pearl-clutching and lecturing about how this was all VERY BAD for journalism. Many took specific issue with Wolf’s pointed jokes about White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

And, apparently, some believed that Wolf was making fun of Sanders’ appearance. By Sunday morning, Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski sent out a series of tweets claiming that the WHCA owed Sanders an apology for the “attacks” she suffered.

Well, Wolf clapped back a little bit later, asking why Mika and others were making this about Sarah’s looks when Wolf only joked about Sanders using burnt facts to make a “perfect smoky eye.”

Mika’s tweets seemed to parrot what the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman had to say about Wolf’s cracks.

Wolf also responded to Haberman, turning Haberman’s criticism around on her.

Considering how Sanders and her boss dismissively treat the press as a whole, it is interesting to see a couple of high-profile media figures who have absorbed tons of intense criticism from this administration go to bat for a White House official over a perceived attack that didn’t even happen.
