Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) created controversy last week when she told people to continue harassing members of President Donald Trump’s administration in public places.
While comedian Michelle Wolf said she agreed with Waters, she said people had to go further than casually harassing them or calling them a “c**t” like comedian Samantha Bee did.
“You have to make sure your words are life-alteringly hurtful,” she said on her Netflix show, “The Break.” “You gotta hit their deepest insecurities with the hot venom of a teenager from a broken home.”
For Wolf, she thought people could insult Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and adviser, more specifically by pretending to compare her to her sister, Tiffany Trump.
“If you see Ivanka on the street, first, call her Tiffany. This will devastate her,” she said. Wolf went on to say people should compare Ivanka to vaginal mesh, a birth control pill, and herpes.
Although Wolf attacked other “s**tty public figures” like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), she repeatedly went back to attack Ivanka.
“Is your nickname herpes because 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 f**cked,” Wolf quipped.
Wolf, who called Ivanka the “prettiest tumor in a swiftly moving cancer,” wasn’t the first person to attack the president’s daughter despite her relatively low public profile.
Bee went after Ivanka for posting a photo of her with her son as the nation faced family separations at the border. In response, Ivanka rose above and talked about how grateful she was to serve in the administration:

“For me, I never allow myself to forget the extraordinary privilege that I have to serve this country, and I try to stay focused on that and on executing,” she said.
“I’ll absorb the body blows that come my way, but it is important to me to focus on the task at hand, which is serving the American people and using this moment in my life to advance an agenda that I deeply believe in and feel very fortunate to be able to work on,” she added.
