It’s been quite a weekend for has-been Saturday Night Live alum. Rob Schneider tried to let you know he has a new show you won’t watch by lecturing about the importance of empathy in comedy. (Shame we can’t really make out what he has to say with his head shoved so far up his own ass.) And Dennis Miller decided to weigh in on Michelle Wolf’s controversial White House Correspondence Dinner set with a zinger. Well, eventually.
What a horrid human being Michelle Wolf is. I’m going to read up on her over the next couple of days and I will have a few brutally mean jokes about her by Wednesday.— Dennis Miller (@DennisDMZ) April 29, 2018
My first thought when I saw this tweet was, “Oh. Dennis Miller’s still alive?” Which is not so much a reflection of his age (64, a fact that took two seconds to Google), but more that he’s been wildly irrelevant for so long that his pretentious schtick can now run for office. Proving his own obsolescence, Miller said he needed three business days to research Wolf before mocking her, because I guess maybe he’s using the Encyclopedia Brittanica print edition or Bing. But don’t worry, he’s got an old stand-by in the warmer:
Everyone knows Hillary Clinton wants back in so badly she can taste it again and again and again. If HRC was half as smart as they insist she is she would come out tomorrow and demand her fellow Liberals quit making fun of Sarah H. Sanders looks. But she won't do that, will she?— Dennis Miller (@DennisDMZ) April 30, 2018
Anyway, Miller’s self-righteousness coupled with his inability to craft a timely joke got him dragged on Twitter by plenty of people who had no problem spinning comedy in seconds.
I bet they’ll be meaner than Willa Cather after an absinthe bender with Gavrilo Princip, cha cha. https://t.co/hovKGymFFk— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) April 29, 2018

After much research I have irrefutable evidence that Michelle (air quotes) Wolf (dramatic pause) is not even a real wolf!

Dennis Miller says out loud the things that other misogynist sociopaths think but are too smart to preview ahead of time. He should talk to a therapist about how his insecurity is getting in the way of his vindictive dreams. pic.twitter.com/EywznFXEz7— Katie Halper (@kthalps) April 30, 2018
Dennis Miller just asked Mike Huckabee for help writing jokes.— Michael Blackman (@mikerblackman) April 30, 2018

Dennis Miller used to know how to tell a joke. Now he is the joke. https://t.co/VxtKQEmSr1— Palmer Report (@PalmerReport) April 30, 2018
In these divisive times, it’s heartwarming to see everyone coming together to agree that Dennis Miller sucks.— Kashana (@kashanacauley) April 30, 2018
In response, Miller made the same joke that people had been making about him all day.
