Michelle Wolf's new Netflix talk show, “The Break with Michelle Wolf” kicked off Sunday night, and the comedian didn't hesitate to launch shots at White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and new CIA Director Gina Haspel in the show's debut, Fox News reported.

The 32-year-old former “Daily Show” and "Late Night" with Seth Meyers writer previously told Entertainment Weekly that she wasn't planning to rehash comments from the White House Correspondents' Dinner, which brought criticism from even the most liberal media personalities.

Apparently, Wolf had a change of heart.

What did Wolf say about Sanders and Haspel on her new show?

"Who knew you could waterboard a glass ceiling 'til it broke?" Wolf asked, referring to questions Haspel underwent before her confirmation, according to CNN.

"[A]fter Gina was nominated, my best friend Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted" that "any Democrat who claims to support women's empowerment and our national security but opposes her nomination is a total hypocrite."

“Well if anyone’s an expert of hypocrites, it’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders. And for the record, that was not a looks-based joke. That was about her ugly personality. She has the Mario Batali of personalities,” she quipped.

Batali resigned from his restaurant empire after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct.

Wolf also took a jab at Sanders' comments that the comedian doesn't support other women.

“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.”

What did Wolf say about Sanders at the dinner?

Sanders attended the dinner as Trump's official representative. She was seated at the main table, just a few seats down from Wolf.

“Every time Sarah steps up to the podium, I get excited because I’m not really sure what we’re gonna get. A press briefing? A bunch of lies? Or divided into softball teams?” Wolf said, mocking Sanders by using a deep voice. “It’s shirts and skins and this time don’t be such a little b***h Jim Acosta.”

“I actually really like Sarah. She’s very resourceful. Like she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye. Like maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lies,” Wolf said. “It’s probably lies.”

What did Sanders say about the latest comments?

Sanders hasn't commented on the latest remarks made against her during the show's premiere.

What else?

Entertainment Weekly asked Wolf how she felt about the attention she received from the Correspondents' Dinner.

"I think it’s awesome! If people hated what I did at the dinner, they’re really going to hate my show," the comedian replied.

The show also hit other topics including the NFL’s kneeling ban, #MeToo Movement, and the royal wedding.

New episodes of "The Break" drop every Sunday night on Netflix.
