I'm not holding my breath for any apologies from WHCA or this so called comedian, whose crude, distasteful 'jokes' upset more than just Conservatives. For a woman to talk to a fellow female this way is in such bad form!
The “Aunt Lydia” joke from “The Handmaid’s Tale” had people thinking she was calling Sarah Huckabee Sanders a “fat lesbian”. Well, Lesbians on the left, middle and right were offended by the knock. Also, 'Aunt Sarah' thing isn't playing well with some older, educated ladies on the left. If the joke wasn't intended to read as comparing her appearance to that as a fat lesbian, then it should have been re-written or dropped, instead they're claiming it's been 'misunderstood'.
@BretBaier Maybe this week —the #WHCA should announce that there will be NO dinner in 2019. Take the year off. Instead -use the year to raise a lot money for journalism scholarships (networks step up) - present scholarships & then come back in 2020 with a rebooted -retooled #WHCADinner.
Close the barn doors on this hot mess for a little while, or maybe, for good. On demand podcast recap of Monday's show below!
