The controversial White House Correspondents Dinner comedian Michelle Wolf has deleted thousands of offensive Twitter messages – after tweeting jokes about Serena Williams having a penis, calling Eric Trump an 'abortion,' and claiming she wanted to have sex with Bill Clinton.
Wolf, 32, has faced heavy criticism for her performance on Saturday after skewering White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders and aide Kellyanne Conway in an act that journalists and politicians widely denounced as mean spirited and vulgar.
On Monday, Wolf's Twitter account showed she has currently has 376 posts on the social media site. In June 2017, the comedian had over 20,000 tweets.
Although the White House Correspondents Association suggested it was caught off guard by Wolf's coarse jokes about the Trump administration, the comedian's Twitter feed shows years of animosity toward Donald Trump and praise for Hillary Clinton.

DailyMail.com reveal the comedian deleted thousands of offensive tweets - including one in which she called Eric Trump 'an abortion' - ahead of her performance
Among the deleted posts was the comment, 'I can't believe trump is pro-life. I'm pretty positive that eric [Trump] is an abortion [sic].'
Another post jokes: 'I'm not normally attracted to white men, but Bill Clinton.' In other Tweets, Wolf claims to 'love' Hillary Clinton and defends the Democratic candidate's use of a private email address to send government correspondence.
The comedian also makes multiple jokes about women's tennis star Serena Williams secretly being a man.
'If Serena Williams and Madonna had an arm wrestling match, no one would win, and they'd both walk away with raging boners,' she wrote in one tweet.
In another, Wolf wrote 'LeBron James was named Sports Illustrated Man of the Year. Sorry Serena, so close.'
The Twitter messages appeared to have been deleted in recent months, as Wolf has gained more national prominence as a comedian.
The former Late Night with Seth Meyers writer and Daily Show with Trevor Noah contributor has her first HBO comedy special coming out later this spring. She was announced as the White House Correspondents dinner host in February.
Wolf, a Pennsylvania native who worked on Wall Street before getting into comedy, slammed Huckabee Sanders for telling 'lies' at the White House Correspondents dinner while the White House press secretary was sitting next to Wolf on stage.
In some of the deleted tweets, Wolf took jabs at members of the Trump administration and called Eric Trump (pictured) 'an abortion.' The president Trump skipped the annual White House Correspondents Dinner for a second year
Comparing Huckabee Sanders to a dowdy character from The Handmaid's Tale, Wolf went on to say, 'I actually really like Sarah. I think she's very resourceful. But she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye. Like, maybe she's born with it, maybe it's lies. It's probably lies.'
Wolf also said White House aide Kellyanne Conway – who was in the audience – has 'the perfect last name for what she does' and joked that she hoped a tree would fall on Conway.
In addition to calling President Trump a 'pu**y' for declining to attend the annual press dinner, Wolf said that abortion opponents should not 'knock it 'til you try it.'
'And when you do try it, really knock it,' she added. 'You know, you've got to get that baby out of there. And yeah, sure, you can groan all you want. I know a lot of you are very anti-abortion. You know, unless it's the one you got for your secret mistress.'
Although the White House Correspondents Dinner traditionally features a comedian, the jokes are typically less barbed. Many reporters and politicians slammed Wolf and the White House Correspondents Association after the performance, calling it mean-spirited and an embarrassment to the annual event.
'The spirit of the event had always been jokes that singe but don't burn. Reporters who work with her daily appreciate that @presssec was there,' said NBC's Kelly O'Donnell on Twitter.
Many have called for Wolf to apologize to Sarah Huckabee Sanders, insisting the comic went too far with her jokes

The New York Times's Maggie Haberman wrote, 'That @PressSec sat and absorbed intense criticism of her physical appearance, her job performance, and so forth, instead of walking out, on national television, was impressive.'
Peter Baker, also with the New York Times, wrote on Twitter: 'Unfortunately, I don't think we advanced the cause of journalism tonight.'
Trump and other current and former members of his administration also weighed in.
The president wrote on Twitter that the dinner was 'a total disaster' and 'dead' after the comedian's act.
Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said Huckabee Sanders should be 'given an apology, given what happened' by the White House Correspondents Association.
In a series of tweets, Wolf made poked fun at Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia after his death
The head of the White House Correspondents Association, Margaret Talev, said she felt 'uncomfortable' with some of the jokes made by Wolf, but defended her right to make the comments.
'[S]he had a message to deliver and she did,' said Talev.
Talev also said the White House Correspondents Association did not look at Wolf's planned jokes in advance and had no idea what the comedian was going to say.
But Wolf's now-deleted Twitter comments show the comedian has been a vocal and long-standing critic of Trump as well as a strong Clinton supporter.
'I think trump is just mad at nature because it made eric,' Wolf wrote in one Twitter message.

In another Tweet, she wrote 'Come on Trump, it's like that saying: don't threaten to take away my constitutional rights before I've had my coffee.'
'Trump is the wrongest we've been since that duke lacrosse scandal,' she wrote in another Tweet.
In other messages, the comedian defended Hillary Clinton during the scandal over her private email server.
'[S]he used her personal email. It's not like she said science is wrong,' wrote Wolf. 'I think using your private email for work probably just proves that you do a lot of work.'
In another Tweet, Wolf wrote, 'I don't understand why people wear sports jerseys. I love Hillary Clinton but I'd never want to dress like her.'
