Call it the meme that was born almost simultaneously among many who viewed the livestream by Beto O'Rourke of his visit to a dental office where he got his teeth cleaned. And that mocking meme, even from many liberals, was "colonoscopy." Yes, that is what the way too intimate view of Beto's orifice inspired in terms of the meme about the other orifice at his opposite end.
It was a little shocking to peruse humorist Dave Barry's comedic "Year in Review 2018" as the cover story of Sunday's Washington Post Magazine. The paper may have been a little sickened by just how much Dave Barry mocked the media's obsession over Russia and the 2016 election, and their thumping tubs for impeachment. There was a lot of the usual Trump mockery (and some Fox News-as-Trump's-servant mockery), but there were a lot of liberal-media jokes in there as well.
NBC's Saturday Night Live is taking on a very sour look. It mocked its own Trump impersonator Alec Baldwin after he reportedly punched a man in the face in a parking-spot dispute. It mocked Fox News for faking news about the "caravan" after NBC aired fake news about Brett Kavanaugh raping women. And Pete Davidson mocked the looks of an Afghanistan war hero who lost an eye in a terrorist blast.
South Park once again opened up their latest season by intentionally embroiling themselves in controversy over a touchy subject. Forget about depicting the Prophet Mohammed, the Comedy Central show's 22nd season began on Wednesday with 5 school shootings, all met with little reaction from the townsfolk.
In another blatant display of just how out of touch the liberal media has become since the election of President Trump, on Monday's Morning Joe, MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski took turns laughing at the incredible economic progress that has been made under Donald Trump.
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.
