You will probably remember comedian Michelle Wolf for her foul White House Correspondents’ Dinner routine, which was highlighted in the media for its vulgar bashing of Trump administration officials like Sarah Huckabee Sanders. You may not have realized, however, that this unfunny demonstration of liberal comedy earned Wolf her own show on Netflix. It’s called “The Break,” and we’re serious: No matter what your politics, it’s literally one of the least humorous shows on TV. Possibly THE least. Like, it’s real bad.
To make up for in shock value what she can’t achieve in comedy, Wolf put on an exceptionally offensive display this week. In celebration of Independence Day (and in protest of the fact that President Trump is getting ready to name a Supreme Court nominee), Wolf held a “Salute to Abortion” on her show, complete with red-white-and-blue fanfare, costumes, and a whole lotta feminist nonsense.
None of it was funny. Even if you are a die-hard, feminist legbeard who thinks every woman should choose abortion at least once, you would have been hard-pressed to find any laughs here. Mean-spirited, bubble-enclosed, and just plain gross. This is the state of left-wing comedy in 2018.
“It’s so ironic that Trump could be the guy who ends legal abortion,” Wolf said as the setup to one of her lame jokes. “That dude has been responsible for more abortions than the invention of back alleys.”
Do you see what we mean by NOT FUNNY? We would probably hate all of this even if it were rip-roaringly hilarious, but it’s just terrible, much like her White House monologue was terrible.
“To any men watching, I’m sure this brings up a lot of feelings and thoughts and points you want to make, and I just want you to know that’s all very irrelevant,” she continued. “Abortion is a woman’s right. And I know acknowledging that is hard for some of you, because that would mean you’d also have to acknowledge that women are naturally equipped to do the most powerful thing in the world: give life. While you guys are naturally equipped to do what? Lift suitcases into the overhead compartment? If women embrace the fact that they control life, that makes it a lot harder for men to control women.”
Did you know women can “give life” without a man’s contribution? How fascinating.
Finally, she turned on those who have the audacity to actually oppose abortion.
“I know some people call themselves ‘pro-life,’ but pro-life is a propaganda term that isn’t real, like healthy ice cream and handsome testicles,” she said. “Get the terminology straight. First of all, these people are anti-abortion, which means they’re anti-woman.”
For real, who is writing this stuff? Are they being paid a salary?
Last one, before you regret whatever it is you ate this morning: “Abortion shouldn’t be a luxury…it should be on the Dollar Menu at McDonald’s! ‘Hey, I’d like a large diet Coke, and can you get this egg out of my McMuffin?’”
We don’t believe in abortion and we don’t necessarily believe in doctor-prescribed euthanasia, but someone should definitely put this abomination out of its misery. Whatever the Obamas have planned for Netflix, it can’t possible be this bad.
