Leftists are still clinging to the idea that right-leaning peeps are a bunch of stuffy old curmudgeons, completely out-of-date and joyless. How else would you explain this left-wing claim conservatives despise comedy?
Political humor has arguably never been more popular. But while its practitioners all have their own distinct styles, their ideology isn’t so varied: Whether they come from Stephen, Seth, or Samantha, the jokes are generally supportive of progressive politics.
If you believe a smug leftist jackass reading DNC talking points over a laugh track is a joke, then yeah. Sure.
Why has the right yet to produce its own Daily Show? In a recent study, a research team led by Danna Young of the University of Delaware provides a simple answer: As a rule, conservatives are not into comedy.

Mayhaps if leftists would exit their safe spaces for a look-see, they’d realize yes, Republicans have a sense of humor as well. Maybe even better ones.
Look, here’s some of that “non-existent” conservative comedy:
