Quote of the day

"Like a porn star says when she's about to have sex with a Trump, let's get this over with."

Comedian Michelle Wolf kicks off her speech at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner, setting the tone for what was to follow.

I've not thought much of her appearances on British TV, but this was something else entirely - a full-frontal assault on the Trump administration, courageously delivered in the presence of many of its constituent members. There's a delicious irony in the fact that it provoked ire and walk-outs from those fond of bandying around the word "snowflake".
