Anti-Choice Conservatives Freak Out Over Michelle Wolf’s ‘Salute To Abortions’: ‘Disgusting’

The comedian's segment on the importance of abortion access was predictably met with anger and outrage from the right.

Former Daily Show star and comedian Michelle Wolf found herself labeled Public Enemy #1 by MAGA Nation after she took aim at White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. She has remained squarely in conservatives’ crosshairs since the launch of her Netflix show The Break, especially after she compared Ivanka Trump to herpes.

After this past Sunday’s broadcast, Wolf has once again found herself as the right’s most-hated figure after she devoted a segment to saluting abortions.

At the end of the episode, Wolf reacted to the current anxiety over Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement and how Roe V. Wade could soon be overturned. After explaining the irony of Donald Trump possibly making abortion illegal and noting that the term “pro-life” is propaganda from the anti-abortion crowd, Wolf finished the show by leading her audience in pro-abortion cheers.

“Women, don’t forget, you have the power to give life and men will try to control that,” she exclaimed. “Don’t let them!”

She finished by declaring “God bless abortions and God bless America!”

This, of course, led to the predictable outrage from right-wing media folks and celebrities who found the whole thing completely reprehensible.

Disgraced former Fox News star Bill O’Reilly, a guy who singled out an abortion doctor who was eventually murdered, reacted by saying Wolf’s segment was “sacrilegious.”

Media Research Center’s Brent Bozell was all over Wolf’s broadcast, as you knew he would:

Glenn Beck’s failing media empire TheBlaze — who purportedly kicked Tomi Lahren to the curb for coming out as pro-choice — had only one thing to say about Wolf’s salute — “disgusting.”

And there was a hodgepodge of other conservative complaints:
