(Newser) – Michelle Wolf fans (and maybe a few detractors?) have been awaiting her new Netflix show The Break since she caused a political commotion at last month's White House Correspondents Dinner. On Saturday's debut—which mixed stand-up and a desk segment on a set that resembles "Ellen after dark," says Refinery 29—Wolf didn't shy away from joking yet again about Sarah Huckabee Sanders. A rundown:

  • Wolf shared a Sanders tweet about incoming CIA Director Gina Haspel, where Sanders called any Democrat who supports female empowerment but opposes Haspel a "total hypocrite." Says Wolf, per the Daily Beast: "Well if anyone’s an expert on hypocrites, it’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders. And for the record, that was not a looks-based joke. That was about her ugly personality."
