The right-wing establishment, the same one that bows at the feet of a president who impersonates disabled people, advocates violence, and routinely labels people as being “low-IQ individuals,” is now (checks notes) advocating for “civility.” Accompanying this new effort is a video that, by showing footage of various celebs doing anti-Trump bits both hilarious and ill-advised, paints Democrats as “unhinged.” Among those in the video is Michelle Wolf, whose set at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner made her the subject of numerous debates. Instead of engaging in any of them, Wolf instead focused on her Netflix series, The Break With Michelle Wolf.


There, she’s fully leaned into the “unhinged” distinction, saying that “expecting people not to be unhinged right now is like expecting someone whose house is on fire to keep calmly rearranging their bookshelf.”

She’s also weaving it into other segments on the series, such as one that posits some fresh, “life-alteringly hurtful” insults to hurl at the White House’s band of fools. “‘You’re a cunt’ doesn’t hurt them,” she said on this past Sunday’s episode. “It’s on their vision board.”


Accordingly, she can’t help but indulge in some color when speaking of Ivanka Trump. Comparing her to vaginal mesh, Wolf says Ivanka was “supposed to support women, but now you have blood all over you, and you’re the center of a thousand lawsuits.” Later, she returns to Ivanka, this time comparing her to herpes: “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.”

The most “life-alteringly hurtful” thing you can say to Ivanka, though? “Call her Tiffany,” Wolf cracks. “This will devastate her.”
