Really? New Seth Meyers Netflix Special Allows Viewers to Skip Trump Jokes

Listen to the Article!

In this age of liberal insanity it seems nothing is too ridiculous, though we do wonder whether we should pinch ourselves when the suits over at Netflix have actually developed technology that allows exhausted viewers to skip Trump-related material in their programming.

Late-night talk show host, and Trump-hater extraordinaire Seth Meyers’ new Netflix programming is breaking ground on new streaming technology that will allow viewers to skip jokes about President Donald J. Trump. Hmm, though this assumes that the remaining five minutes of Meyers’ special is quality.

In an interview with CNN Business, the NBC talk show host bragged like this idea was the next big thing in streaming, which involved asking “Netflix to create a button for viewers to opt out of watching that segment, in the same way Netflix users can bypass the introduction credits with the ‘skip intro’ button at the top of some of its programs.”

Wow, you’d think that maybe Meyers could just tone down the political rhetoric, but then again, what would he do without Donald? The dude’s got to have some sort of shtick. He explained, “It dawned on me that because it was on Netflix, there would be this opportunity to put in technology that would allow people to skip it,” adding that people who are annoyed at Meyers constant anti-conservative tripe now have no excuse.

“It was a way to build in the response to anyone who would say, 'Oh, let me guess there's going to be jokes about the president.'" Well, maybe there’s a warning about Trump jokes, but what about the sneering, anti-conservative vibe Meyers gives off at all times?

The new special from the Saturday Night Live alum is called “Lobby Baby,” a subtle nod to the fact that Meyer’s son was born in the lobby of his apartment building in 2018. Director of Netflix’s standup content Robbie Praw told CNN Business he thought Meyers’ idea was “clever” and claimed that the company is “thrilled he was able to take advantage of the Netflix experience in such a funny and innovative way.”

Of course, Meyers is being tongue-in-cheek with his new Netflix widget, claiming it’s just “another joke in the special."  He mentioned that he doesn’t think viewers of “Lobby Baby” will actually skip over the Trump jokes.

Well, no duh, people love liberal comedians like Meyers precisely for the Trump jokes. He’s just one of the late-night faces who exist to reinforce status quo politics and bring comfort to opinionated leftwingers. They also need Trump jokes to boost their bottom line. If anything, this stunt reminds viewers how much of a one-trick-pony conservative-basher Meyers is.
