Comedian Michelle Wolf Doubles Down As She Receives Widespread Backlash Over WHCD Speech

(Washington, DC) – Comedian Michelle Wolf is receiving widespread backlash over her speech at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. At the yearly event, Wolf took aim at many notable people in the room. At one point, Wolf referred to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders as a “an Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women.”

She also said Sanders’ token smoky eye look was made from the ashes of “burnt facts.” In her 19 minute roast, Wolf also took a shot at Democrats and the media. She said Mr. Trump, “has helped you sell your papers and your books and your TV. You helped create this monster and now you are profiting from him.” Wolf’s roast has garnered criticism from both sides of the aisle, as many think she went too far.

The comedian is doubling down though and says the criticism doesn’t bother her and she wouldn’t change a thing about her performance.  She says she believes people don’t think women will ever push the envelope but that she wasn’t afraid to stick to her brand of comedy targeting those outside of the room and not the audience inside.

Human Trafficking: Atlanta Mom Buys Her Missing Teenager After Seeing Her Advertised On A Backpage Ad For Sex

(SL) – The sex trafficking problem rears its ugly head daily in Atlanta, GA. Kubiiki Pride is sharing her story through a documentary titled “I am Jane Doe” that was released on Netflix early this year.

Kubiiki’s daughter (called MA) sneaked out of the house one night to go to an end of the school year party and quickly found herself in trouble. The 13-year old left with a woman who she thought was going to take her home and ended up being kidnapped by the female trafficker.

Gone without a trace, after 270 days, Pride started looking online and said she was scrolling through Backpage.com when she came across online advertisement offering sex with her her daughter.

It was the escorts section of Backpage.com

According to the FBI, the average age that a girl is first recruited into prostitution or sex trafficking in the U.S. is 11-14 years-old.

The most recent numbers show sex trafficking in Georgia generated nearly $300 million a year.

The Daily Mail reports, something about the stars and hearts caught her attention and she clicked it to find explicit photos of her daughter wearing only underwear and posing provocatively.

“I called and asked to purchase the services myself,” she said.  When her daughter was returned to her, she said she was addicted to drugs and had been horribly abused.

‘My daughter was stabbed and burned, her head shaved, and she was beaten,’ she said. She ran away two more times, both times being returned to her mother.

‘I said why are you running away?’ Pride said in the documentary while choking back tears. ‘And she said, “Well mom I have to go and get these pills.”‘

The woman who trafficked MA was caught and sentenced to five years in prison in 2010, but the advertisement featuring explicit photos of the teen remained online.

‘Once I told her about all the pain and suffering I went through and that I wanted revenge, she also did,’ MA said in the documentary.
