Michelle Wolf is all class yet again. It is amazing Netflix can even air such poor taste in programmes. She spends six minutes poking fun at abortion. Indeed it is Netflix’s reputation at stake to air this crap. You might recall Wolf’s speech at the White House Correspondents dinner where her fingernails-down-a-chalkboard voice made off-coloured jokes surrounding abortion, Trump’s bedroom prowess, his daughter being as useful as an empty box of tampons and even portrayed WH Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as a fat softball playing lesbian Uncle Tom for white women.
Even if one is pro abortion, it is hardly a topic which should be made the butt of jokes and flippant humour. Yes, comedy can cut across lines but there was zero content in this level of low base crass celebration. It is potty humour at best and vile at worst.
Watch the video on its merits and ask yourself did you laugh at any of her scripted attempt at humour? She lost a $4mn role to star in an Adam Sandler film after her White House stunt. Seems like doubling down is a thing for celebrities. Create shock value to make up for talent they don’t have. Was her comedy any good it would sell on its merit without having to resort to being face down in the gutter.
One thing is for certain, these events gift the mid terms to the GOP. Calling the Pro Life campaigners the equivalent of healthy ice cream or handsome testicles must have taken an age to think up. #WalkAway
