Country music’s CMAs were last night. The opening monologue is catching some media attention. The attention should be on killer performances by Chris Stapleton, the Brothers Osbourne, and Pink (no, seriously). Instead it’s on the opening monologue and a joke about Donald Trump.
The left is playing this off as a “ridicule” and I hope the right doesn’t lose their sense of humor and do the knee jerk reaction thing. Because a) it was pretty funny, and b) unlike the Hollywood awards and late-night comedy, it shows how to make jokes about the president while not being a dick about it to his supporters.
Right now, he’s probably in his PJs, watching cable news, reaching for his cellphone…
Right now, he’s probably asking Siri how in the hell you spell Pocahontas…
In the middle of the night from the privacy of a good-plated White House toilet seat, he writes little ‘Bob Corker, NFL and covfefe.’ And it’s fun to watch until little rocket man starts a nuclear war. Maybe next time he’ll think before he tweets.
Get it, instead of Carrie Underwoods “Before He Cheats,” they sung “Before He Tweets!” Hey, I thought it was funny!
It’s also not the first time Brad Paisley got political (see CMAs: Brad Paisley Makes Funny Caitlyn Jenner Joke. #SJWs RAGE!). The left didn’t find that funny though. Mud and sticks.
See how easy fun mockery can be? It wasn’t mean, it wasn’t disgusting or cliche. They cracked a joke about Hillary Clinton too. It is possible to make jokes about politics and be entertaining without taking a covfefe dump on half the country which disagrees. Makes me want to dig my keys into the sides of my neighbor’s pretty, little souped up riding lawn mower. Oh, maybe that’s for Rand Paul. Maybe next time he’ll think before he seeds.
Two country singers (and a writing staff) understand how to do late night comedy. Think about that.
