On Late Night with Seth Meyers, Michelle Wolf sat down with her former employer, who wasted no time bringing up her widely panned performance at this year’s White House Correspondents dinner.

“It went great, and every single person loved it,” Wolf joked to Meyers, who added, “Every single person across the board. Never happened before.” Wolf continued: “No, everyone loved it. Even — actually, Sarah Huckabee Sanders called me, and she was like, ‘I loved it so much. I got every joke.'” Meyers answered, “Really? Cause I was watching. There were a few that seemed like she maybe didn’t like or get.” Wolf responded, “Well, you know, you give the best information you have at the time. It’s a philosophy.”

Meyers pointed out that Wolf’s performance received the most views of any White House Correspondents dinner on C-SPAN’s YouTube channel. The view count that took Meyers seven years to reach, Wolf beat in less than three days. “It’s great. Yeah, I think that means I’m the father of your children now,” Wolf told Meyers. “They’re mine now.”

And that wasn’t the only thing Meyers wanted to share. He pulled out a photo, taken at a party after the dinner, in which the comic is surrounded by her writers. When asked what they were saying when she walked in the room, Wolf answered, “They’re chanting, ‘Lock her up!'”
