Comedian Michelle Wolf compared Ivanka Trump to herpes, vaginal mesh, recalled birth control pill Yaz, and a tumor during a segment of her weekly Netflix show, The Break with Michelle Wolf. Unlike Samantha Bee’s “cunt-gate” fame, Wolf is unlikely to apologize for the insults.
Wolf starts off the segment agreeing with Congresswoman Maxine Waters about harassing Trump administration officials in public. But, she cautions, you have to really go for the jugular.
“You have to insult them specifically,” said Wolf. “‘You’re a cunt’ doesn’t hurt them. It’s on their vision board.”
Her first example is Ivanka Trump: “If you see Ivanka on the street, first, call her Tiffany. This will devastate her.”
She continued: “Then, talk to her in terms she understands. Say, ‘Ivanka, you’re like vaginal mesh. You were supposed to support women, but now you have blood all over you and you’re at the center of a dozen lawsuits.’”
After comparing Ivanka to the recalled birth control pill Yaz, she moved on to STDs: “Is your nickname herpes because you’re not necessarily the most dangerous person in the administration, but you’re very unpleasant, totally incurable, and you always show up when we’re about to get fucked.”
Wolf ended the segment with, “Ivanka is the prettiest tumor in a swiftly moving cancer.”
She clowned other conservatives and Trump administration officials, like Mitch McConnell, Betsy Devos, Scott Pruitt, and Clarence Thomas, but Ivanka got the brunt of the jokes.
Was the segment laugh out loud funny? No. Am I hoping people lose their shit to defend Ivanka’s undeserved honor? Heck ya, I love chaos.
