I missed most of it initially because Michelle Wolf's routine was so boring I stopped watching. I went back to watch after people complained (which only confirmed my instinct not to watch in the first place was the correct one). I love a good roast, but this was not funny (Michelle, you are not Don Rickles).
Pro Tip to Media: You are making the case you are a bunch of biased partisan jerks. President Trump is wise to skip these events and the rest of the White House staff should join him.i wish they had a WHCD every week. the damage these cranks do to themselves is profound, and they can't even see it.— GregGutfeld (@greggutfeld) April 29, 2018
Between how @PressSec was treated tonight and how @AndrewCMcCarthy detailed the willful failure in #ServerGate, I'm about ready to buy my first #MAGA hat...— Brad Thor (@BradThor) April 29, 2018

Every caricature thrust upon the national press—that we are culturally elitist, professionally incestuous, socioeconomically detached and ideologically biased—is confirmed by this trainwreck of an event.— Tim Alberta (@TimAlberta) April 29, 2018
Journalists, the joke’s on us.
The WHCD is broken. Fix it or end it.
