The trend of late night comedians doing nothing but bash Donald Trump? Jay Leno isn’t a fan…
“I enjoy bringing people together,” Leno told me. “If [mocking the president] is a constant thing on a nightly basis, eventually you’re all doing the same joke.”
It’s not the jokes that bother me. It’s the left celebrating the jokes as edgy and/or original that bothers me (but I repeat myself). How many think pieces have you read celebrating late night comedians as “becoming the front line for the resistance”? Worse, how many people do you know who post drivel on social media proclaiming comedians’ tripe as the source of all their news? Humanity is doomed. At least we can thank Zuckerberg for the “unfollow” option.
Jimmy Fallon, the one comedian who doesn’t mock Trump as a form of affirmation, gets blasted for it. Though Fallon to his credit says: “I don’t want to be bullied into not being me, and not doing what I think is funny. Just because some people bash me on Twitter, it’s not going to change my humor or my show.”
Imagine acknowledging the 63,000,000 people who have a different opinion than most in the entertainment industry (see Ashton Kutcher’s Character on The Ranch… is Pro-Life? and WATCH: ‘Last Man Standing’ Brutally Mocks College Liberals). What a concept.
