In the wake of comedian Michelle Wolf’s earth-rumbling routine at the White Correspondence Dinner, people all sides of the political spectrum are debating whether or not her comments went over the line.
While most conservatives felt Wolf’s speech was unnecessarily mean, especially her comments directed at White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, one historically Trump-supporting pundit didn’t see things that way.
In a post to Twitter, former Illinois GOP Rep. Joe Walsh responded to a Fox News segment where a correspondent said Sanders “should get an apology from the White House Correspondents’ Association.”
But according to Walsh, that’s “bullshit.”
“Then Trump must apologize to everyone he’s taken an ugly, personal attack at these past few years,” Walsh tweeted.
“There’s very little dignity on either side right now. We’re divided. It’s gonna get worse. It’s as it should be. Grow up,” he continued.

Walsh was responding to Fox News reporter Ed Henry,who called for the WHCA to apologize to press secretary Sanders for jokes made about her by Wolf.
During her routine, Wolf targeted Sanders’ loose relationship with facts, saying: “Every time Sarah steps up to the podium, I get excited. I’m not really sure what we’re going to get, you know? A press briefing, a bunch of lies or divided into softball teams. It’s shirts and skins, and this time don’t be such a little bitch, Jim Acosta.”
“I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful,” Wolf continued. “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.”
The phrase “perfect smokey eye” was in reference to Sanders’ eye makeup.
