CNN commentator and GOP strategist Ana Navarro slammed critics of comedian Michelle Wolf's routine at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, claiming they are acting like “snowflakes.”

“Seems some [people] usually offended at lies & attacks on the media by Trump WH, today are offended a comedienne publicly calling out Trump WH on their lies & attacks on the media,” Navarro, a frequent critic of President TrumpDonald John TrumpMexican presidential candidate vows to fire back at Trump's 'offensive' tweets Elizabeth Warren urges grads to fight for 'what is decent' in current political climate Jim Carrey takes aim at Kent State grad who posed with AR-10 MORE, tweeted Sunday.

“But hey, fortunately in the Trump era, only politically-correct 'snowflakes' should care about feelings,” she added, attaching a photo of a pair of Trump supporters wearing shirts that read “Trump 2016 F--- Your Feelings.”

Wolf has faced backlash for her set at the annual dinner, particularly for her jokes about White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

"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," Wolf said at the dinner.

"I actually really like Sarah. I think she's very resourceful," she 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. It’s probably lies.”

Some journalists criticized the jokes, calling them mean. But others said that Wolf had been hired to mock the administration and was doing her job.

The White House Correspondents' Association said in a statement late Sunday that Wolf’s routine was “not in the spirit” of its mission.

And President Trump went after Wolf in a tweet Sunday, saying the “filthy ‘comedian’ totally bombed.”
