Late Night Hosts Rush To Defense Of Comedian Michelle Wolf

May 01, 2018 - 9:26 am

WASHINGTON (1010 WINS) -- Late night comedians are circling the wagons around Michelle Wolf, who offended a lot of people -- mostly on the right -- but some on the left -- with her monologue at the White House Correspondents Dinner over the weekend.

Stephen Colbert comedian-splained it to offended members of the White House press corps.

"This was a roast, and you're the ones who hired Michelle Wolf. Being mad at her for doing her job is like accusing the valet of briefly stealing your car," Colbert said.

Wolf used to work for Seth Meyers over on NBC.

"When you call her filthy, you are right. She is filthy, and she is mean, which is what we love about her," he said.

Trevor Noah went so far as to fire Wolf from the Daily Show -- which she actually left months ago of her own accord to launch her own series on Netflix.
