Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Comparing people to inanimate objects is tricky business. You might make the wrong metaphor and unintentionally say something that sounds dirty. You might even stumble into a worn-out cliche and call somebody a doorknob.

Cliche? Fat chance. Newly-signed Netflix star Michelle Wolf is one of the freshest voices in satire. And all her dirty jokes are on purpose.

In a clip from her show “The Break,” Wolf considers Maxine Waters’ call for Democrats to harass and intimidate Trump’s White House sidekicks. The comic seems to empathize with the pro-protest side of the debate. But she does call for a few changes. Like crushing Ivanka Trump’s soul instead of merely denying her entrees.

Wolf suggests calling Ivanka “Tiffany” along with several less-PG nicknames. Betsy DeVos and a few other Trumpers get their just desserts. But it’s the comedienne’s Ivanka/Yaz joke that will keep you laughing for longer than 4:51.
