The August issue of the women's magazine Glamour is the Comedy Issue, so they rounded up female comedy writers for all the liberal late-night shows to address diversity in the writers' room and how feminism pervades the late-night scene. Molly McNearney, Jimmy Kimmel's wife and head writer, unleashed the "WTF" on the idea of Hillary pantsuit jokes during the campaign. But feminists are fine with mocking Melania and Ivanka Trump.
SCTV from Canada was perhaps the funniest television show ever to be aired. Sadly in these times of SJW snowflakes, such a show probably would not be tolerated.
Comedy Central’s lame replacement for the Colbert Report, The Opposition with Jordan Klepper, is even worse than Colbert at disguising their liberal agitprop as hiding behind a mask of idiotic conservatism. On Tuesday night, Klepper brought on his cast mates Josh Sharp and Aaron Jackson, pitched on screen as "Authors of F**k the Poor: A Conservative Guide to Comedy.”
Comedians of the #Resistance, applying their talents to derail President Trump, were the subject of a Washington Post story on Monday, but it’s almost impossible for liberals to identify this as liberal. Instead, a headline about liberal American University in northwest DC suggested "'Comedian in residence’ furthers study of humor’s role in social change.” Electing Trump could certainly qualify as “social change,” but the term is liberal code for “social justice,” that is liberal victory.
Friday on ABC’s The View, the show celebrated host Joy Behar’s birthday, by starting off with a special guest appearance by Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, voiced by comedian Robert Smigel. The puppet dog has been a mainstay on Conan O’Brien’s late-night comedy shows for the past twenty years and has a penchant for brutally mocking his interviewers. So naturally the hosts’ liberal bias didn’t escape the puppet’s blunt jokes.
The Media Research’s Center’s 30th Anniversary Gala, featuring the “DisHonors Awards,” concluded Thursday night with veteran comedian, actor and radio talk show host Joe Piscopo presenting funny video clips, from comedy shows and the Internet, identified by the MRC’s News Analysis Division.
For Tuesday’s show this past week, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel took his camera out to Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles to ask people to identify North Korea on a map. Not surprisingly, total failure. Take an amusing, if depressing, look at how clueless many are as more than one person pointed to Europe, the Middle East, Australia, South America and even....Canada.
The Washington Post is trying a new tactic to mock President Trump's tweets: they assembled a "Washington Post Kids Chorus" of grade-school kids to sing (or rap) actual Trump tweets.
They posted the video on Friday, and Jonathan Easley at The Hill tweeted: "WaPo getting kids to mockingly sing Trump's tweets seems needlessly antagonistic and a dumb move right now."
Barack Obama believes that “there are no red states or blue states, just the United States,” and Sophia McClennen agrees with him, sort of. In a Saturday piece for Salon, the Penn State prof declared that since “the GOP attacks on the idea of the truth and on the concept of fact-checking are only going to get more absurd,” before long “we won’t code maps by blue and red states; we will code them by whether their voters favor facts or fantasy.”
Talk about betraying a bias. A reporter from the Washington Post actually admitted that she and her cohorts had “a little bit of fun” assembling and highlighting examples of foreign leaders who have mocked President Trump. Anne Gearan, the reporter who cheerfully wrote a story last week titled, “Trump said foreign leaders wouldn’t laugh at the U.S. Now they’re laughing at him.”
Chelsea Handler may be a far-left comedian known for railing against conservatives, but in Friday's episode of her Netflix show, she had fun at the expense of her fellow liberals as her Chelsea show ran a parody of an anti-Trump liberal named Gary who is obsessed with watching CNN. When his wife and children take away his TV, the poor guy goes to extreme lengths just to get the latest Trump news from CNN -- ranging from visiting a cross-dressing prostitute to breaking into a neighbor's home to watch Van Jones -- and then ends up in prison bullying his cellmate into keeping quiet while he indulges in David Gergen and Jake Tapper.
Your average liberal journalist isn't going to think The New Yorker magazine when it comes to fake-news sites on Facebook. But my wife hopped in the car yesterday and asked, in a please-shoot-this-down tone: "Trump didn't really say that if I'm impeached, I'll have the greatest ratings ever." My first reply -- not kidding -- was "that sounds like Andy Borowitz and his brand of humor/hate at the Borowitz Report. Sure enough, it was.
