The Media Can’t Take The Heat They Dish Out


The White House Correspondents Dinner is an annual time for the press to joke about themselves and laugh about being the controllers of information.

This year the comedian Larry Wilmore took the stage and instead of telling harmless jokes and pandering to the media giants, he decided to treat it more like a Comedy Central roast and went after the media hard.

The Comedy Central star from “The Nightly Show” had the usual shots at the right and Donald Trump and Ted Cruz took it the hardest, but his vicious attacks on the liberal media is what got the occasional boo and silence from the audience, and it was great.

The media was hit hard. He called Wolf Blitzer a drone, and he made Don Lemon flip him off!

Larry bashed the media hard and even took a few good shots at Hillary and Bill Clinton. You could tell he was a Bernie supporter because of the softball jokes, but all in all it was fun watching our “honest” media squirming in their chairs.

Watch for yourself and enjoy.

What do you think the best joke was? Let us know in the comments.
