White House Correspondents' Association dinner entertainer Michelle Wolf used her new Netflix show to joke about Sarah Huckabee Sanders after mocking the White House press secretary last month.

Wolf, in a segment about feminism on "The Break with Michelle Wolf," brought up a tweet from “my best friend” that said Democrats who support women's empowerment but didn’t back Gina Haspel for CIA director were hypocrites.

 

 

“Well if anyone’s an expert on hypocrites, it’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” Wolf joked. “And for the record, that was not a looks-based joke. That was about her ugly personality.”

“She has the Mario Batali of personalities,” she added, referring to the celebrity chef.

Wolf faced heavy criticism for her jokes at the correspondents' dinner about Sanders.

During her set, Wolf compared Sanders to a character from “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

"I actually really like Sarah. I think she's very resourceful," Wolf said at the dinner. "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."

“Is it Sarah Sanders? Is it Sarah Huckabee Sanders?” Wolf said at the time. “Is it Cousin Huckabee? Is it Auntie Huckabee Sanders? Like, what's Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women?”

The comedian stood by her performance, saying that she “wouldn't change a single word that I said.”
