Trump used the social media platform to call Wolf a “so-called comedian” following the news that the featured speaker at the 2019 White House Correspondents’ Dinner would be an author instead of a comedian. Wolf headlined the 2018 event and sparked anger among conservatives with her jokes about White House adviser Kellyanne Conway and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Wolf hit back at the president’s post with this blistering tweet:
Wolf also referenced first lady Melania Trump’s anti-bullying campaign by captioning the post with its slogan, #BeBest. Her tweet was well received:
