On the heels of her controversial set at the White House Correspondents Dinner last month, Comedian Michelle Wolf didn’t shy away from taking on Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders again in her new Netflix show The Break, multiple outlets are reporting.

“Who knew you could waterboard a glass ceiling ’til it broke?” Wolf reportedly said of new CIA chief Gina Haspel, who has been linked to the agency’s torture of suspected terrorists in the years after 9/11. Wolf then went on to tackle Sanders: “After Gina was nominated, my best friend Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted, ‘Any Democrat who claims to support women’s empowerment and our national security but opposes her nomination is a total hypocrite,’” Wolf said. “Well if anyone’s an expert of hypocrites, it’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders. And for the record, that was not a looks-based joke,” Wolf said, referencing the backlash to her WHCD set. “That was about her ugly personality. She has the Mario Batali of personalities.”

Wolf continued:

“Do women have to support other women? Of course not,” she joked. “If we did, Hillary would be president, and I don’t think she is. But more and more women are achieving power.”
