Comedian Michelle Wolf caused a storm after her controversial jokes at the White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington last month. Throughout her performance, the comedian made a series of tasteless and outright offensive jokes.

The jokes included remarks about killing babies inside of the womb by banging the child around. They also included distasteful remarks about Sarah Sander's physical appearance. Throughout the country, on both left and right, people were not happy with the comedian's remarks. 

When referring to Sarah Sanders, the comedian remarks that "she burns facts, and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye." The comedian also called Sanders a liar. 

After hearing the remarks, President Trump went to Twitter to say that the comedian had "bombed" the performance. Wolf, however, isn't backing down. 

"For the record, that was not a looks-based joke, that was about her ugly personality," Wolf said in another distasteful remark. 

When asked about the comedian's remarks by the media, rather than stooping to the low level of Wolf, Sanders wished the comedian a happy life. 

“Look, I think that evening says a whole lot more about her than it does about me,” Sanders said of the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner on Saturday, according to the Daily Caller.

“The people that were my friends before that evening are my friends today and I’m going to continue doing the job that I came here to do every single day,” she said. “I’m very proud of the fact that I work in this administration for this president and we’re going to keep pushing forward and doing everything we can to make America better.”

“I think we’ve had a great first year and a half at doing that. A huge success story that we’re proud of,” Sanders continued. “I hope that she can find some of the same happiness that we all have, because I think she may need a little bit more of that in her life, because the rest of us here are doing great.”

In her performance, Wolf's most offensive joke was about abortion. To those who believe that abortion is murder, Wolf told, "don't knock it till you try it. And when you do try it, really knock it. You know, you got to get that baby out of there." 

Roman Catholic Auxiliary Bishop Robert Barron responded to Wolf's comments by reminding observers precisely what Wolf was joking about. 

"It might be helpful to remind ourselves what Ms. Wolf is referencing when she speaks of 'knocking that baby out of there.' She means the evisceration, dismemberment, and vivisection of a child. And lest one think that we are just talking about 'bundles of cells,' it is strict liberal orthodoxy that a baby can be aborted at any stage of its prenatal development, even while it rests in the birth canal moments before birth," wrote the bishop.

"Indeed, a child, who somehow miraculously survives the butchery of an abortion, should, according to that same orthodoxy, be left to die or actively killed. Sure sounds like fun to me; hey, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it."

Wolf also joked about performing indecent sexual acts in front of the crowd.

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer called the performance a "disgrace." Conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt has called it something that "mocked the values of civil society." 

In recent news, Meghan McCain just made a comment about the 'Roseanne' cancellation.
