"Ms. Wolf described Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, as "an Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women" and took a shot at her "smokey eye" makeup, saying that it was made from the ashes of 'burnt facts, '" The Times reports.
Wolf responded overnight on Twitter by saying "all these jokes were about her despicable behavior", not looks.
She added, "Is it Sarah Sanders?"
Wolf didn't comment negatively on Sanders' looks at that dinner. "CNN reporters got awards, I can not remember the exact award they got, but they came up to accept them and she sat the whole time while we all stood and shook their hands".
In expressing outrage after a purported attack on her looks, these reporters have gone out of their way to expose not only their lack of comedic comprehension, but their own apparent feelings about Sarah Huckabee Sanders' appearance. "I think she's very resourceful", Wolf had said. Like, she burns facts, and then she uses the ash to create a ideal smoky eye.
Despite this, Fox News host Juan Williams went off from the traditional network agenda during the April 30 edition of "The Five" and praised Wolf while mocking conservatories who were offended.

The decision comes as sales of passenger cars continue to decline while sales of SUVs and crossovers continue to climb. He said that they will be "building a winning portfolio and focusing on products and markets where Ford can win".
"It was disgusting, despicable", said Henry.
For those who perceive journalists as arrogant and condescending with no self-awareness whatsoever, the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner has always been the gift that keeps on giving.
That President Trump loves to knock the non-rightward-tilted media as "fake news" and set up journalists as enemies of the state - and actually used the phrase "enemy of the American people" in one of his more memorable Twitter rants on the subject - is just as immaterial as Ms. Wolf's performance. "I don't know how she gets away with it", Trump said. The only person owed an apology here is Ms Wolf, for being scolded by the very people who invited her to speak, and who purport to defend a "vigorous and free press".
But then she jumped back in to the debate Monday afternoon, lauding Ms. Wolf for doing "what nobody else has been able to do: get Trump supporters to stand up against offensive attacks on women". And Wolf is right: Sanders really does lie a lot. The star power dimmed appreciably a year ago when the famously thin-skinned Trump, who routinely slammed reporters as dishonest and their work as "fake news", announced he wasn't attending. "Unfortunately, the entertainer's monologue was not in the spirit of that mission", Talev said.
I've never liked these soirees, which convey a false and inappropriate chumminess between reporters and the people they cover. I thought that Wolf was making fun of the press secretary's demeanor and character; that's a distinction with a difference. You know, you've got to get that baby out of there.
But we're now in a "much more serious environment" she said, "and to kind of not go after the big issues and just have a little fun in the room seemed just not as exciting to me".
But in discussions on Sunday with three key board members - Talev, incoming president Olivier Knox of SiriusXM and Jonathan Karl of ABC News - several news organizations made clear that they would abandon their support next year if the comedy element isn't eliminated.
