Comedian Literally Mocks ‘Bad Comedian’s’ For Their Attacks on President Trump

This is what the comedy world’s attacks on Trump amount to.

Low Hanging Fruit.

That’s what the comedy world’s attacks on Trump amount to.

Even the President’s most ardent supporters can understand that the President is often just a caricature of himself.

So when the “best and brightest” in the comedy world take their whacks at the President, the effect often falls flat… because its just low hanging fruit and any one of us could come up with the same jokes.

Almost all of the comedy focused on mocking the President falls well short of funny, and comedic genius Norm McDonald explained why during an interview on CTV:

CTV: Comedy in the time of Trump: Is it more difficult than it was when you were on Saturday Night Live?

Norm MacDonald : It’s more difficult in the time of Trump for good comedians, and it’s way easier for bad comedians. You don’t have a worldview by just saying that you don’t like Trump, you know what I mean? That doesn’t count. You can’t just say ‘I hate Trump’ and that makes you a good person. The Democrats can’t just say ‘I hate Trump’ and that means that I have a position. That’s no position.

So, for idiots, it’s an easier time because you go ‘well that guy’s the idiot, not me.’ But if you try to do smart comedy it’s better to stay away from Trump…

CTV: He’s being caricatured quite mercilessly on Saturday Night Live by Alec Baldwin. Is that funny to you?

Norm MacDonald : No. The only reason I don’t find it funny is when I was there Darrell Hammond did Donald Trump, that shows how long Trump has been there, that was 20 years ago. Darrel did a softer Trump, I think a lot closer to his real self.

The thing is, if you do an impression of someone, you have to like the person, because you’re playing the person and people like themselves. So, you can play someone and have contempt for them at the same time, it doens’t work. I don’t like the impression, and I have no political affiliation, I just mean on a comedy level.

CTV: Is Donald Trump funny?

NORM MACDONALD : He’s enormously funny and entertaining. Normally with politicians, you need to be humble, to be really funny, and I think that’s why Ronald Reagan was the funniest president that I ever saw because he always had this humility to him. And then there was George W. Bush who I also considered very funny, both with calculation and without. You could laugh at him, but with him too.

I was kind of lost with President [Barack] Obama because people told me he was funny, but to me, he was too self-aware of himself and his position in history and all that… And of course, Hillary [Clinton] couldn’t have been more strident. People don’t vote on issues as much as they just vote on who they’d rather have a beer with. And nobody wanted to have a beer with Hillary Clinton.

CTV: Would you want to have a beer with Trump? You say to be funny you have to be humble, but I don’t think Donald Trump is very humble, is he?

Norm MacDonald : No. There’s no humility to Donald Trump. Donald Trump is more funny in a way that a WWE wrestler is… I’ve had people that I know that went on Celebrity Apprentice and they said that the first thing that he says is that he’s a bigger celebrity than all of the contestants.

He is a different kind of funny, which is a sort of, self-deluded — well I don’t know that it’s self-delusion… I think it’s just all an act. I don’t think really that Trump ever wanted to be president.

I’ve seen this happen with comedians too, you start thinking that you’re good because the people that come to see you all like you. But, the reason that they came to see you is because they like you. Politicians and comedians both make that mistake of thinking that they’re much better than they are, because they’re never criticized by the people that don’t like them. That’s why social media is so good, because you can see the people that don’t like you at all.

I try to not do comedy about Donald Trump… I try to stay away from it because it’s low-hanging fruit and also Trump often times is doing self-parody and nothing looks dumber than if you parody self-parody.

In fact, I’ve only ever seen one semi-funny comedy piece about Donald Trump, and it was from comedian John Mulaney in his Netflix special, “The Comeback Kid.” Sadly, I couldn’t find a clip from the show online, but he did a piece of the joke on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

2020 Democrat Hopeful Makes It Clear — I Support ‘X’ As A Third Gender (Details)

Come again!?

John Salvatore

New York recently passed a bill allowing late-term abortions.

Therefore, it only seems right that a New York Democrat running for president would say she supports “X” as a third gender option.

From CBS News:

New York Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a 2020 candidate, endorsed federal implementation of a third gender listing for Americans who identify as non-binary. Speaking at an LGBTQ-focused meet and greet in New Hampshire on Friday, Gillibrand emphatically said “yes” about recognizing “X” as a third gender marker.

Will the other Dems running in 2020 come out now and echo Gillibrand’s words?

Does Gillibrand have a shot at her party’s nomination?

Kirsten was the fourth Democrat to enter the 2020 race.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand launched a presidential exploratory committee Tuesday night, joining the crowded Democratic hunt to win the White House in 2020.

The New York Democrat, a longtime advocate for women in politics and a leader in the #MeToo movement supporting survivors of sexual assault, announced her decision to run for president on CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” saying she will “fight for other people’s kids as hard as I would fight for my own.”

Gillibrand is wildly anti-Trump.

WATCH:

Male?

Female?

X?

Your call!

From Daily Wire:

On Wednesday, for the first time in its history, New York City offered a third option for parents of newborn babies or anyone choosing not to identify as male or female: changing or setting the gender of a birth certificate to “X.”

That third option, bypassing male and female, became available courtesy of a law signed by New York Mayor Bill de Blasio in early October that went into effect on January 1. De Blasio stated that the law allowed citizens the freedom to “tell the government who they are and not the other way around … Imagine if you were told you were something that you did not consider yourself to be.” He addressed transgender New Yorkers, saying, “You be you. Live your truth. And know that New York City will have your back.”

NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio, in June 2018: “Pride Month is a time to celebrate how far we’ve come in the fight for equality, and re-affirm our commitment to protecting all New Yorkers from discrimination. This proposal will allow transgender and gender non-conforming New Yorkers to live with the dignity and respect they deserve, and make our City fairer.

What’s going to happen when people want to identify as something other than “X?”

Food for thought.

As a way to spite President Trump, far-left New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, brother of CNN’s Chris Cuomo, granted pardons to nearly two dozen “undocumented immigrants” to prevent their deportations.

ICYMI: After AOC & Dems Call to Eliminate Columbus Day, This Ohio City Obliges

It’s just getting worse and worse.

If people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez keep getting elected to Congress, things will get pretty rough very fast.

After AOC and other Democrats called on cities to no longer recognize Columbus Day, one listened.

Well, one – for now.

From The Hill:

Officials in the city of Sandusky, Ohio, have decided that the city will no longer observe Columbus Day as a holiday, switching it for Election Day.

[…]

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has advocated for making the change nationally. And a November survey from Hill.TV and HarrisX polling company found that a majority of respondents favor making Election Day a federal holiday.

More from Sandusky Register:

Previously a paid vacation day, paid time off hours for Columbus Day now shift to Election Day, typically falling on the first Tuesday in November.

The new rule takes effect this year.

Ocasio-Cortez has a question about election day and Columbus Day she can’t seem to figure out on her own.

Not only is it ridiculous, but conservatives took notice.

See her tweet:

Ocasio-Cortez said that she couldn’t afford to land an apartment in DC until her Congressional paycheck kicked in.

I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.

She apparently lied.

From Daily Wire:

As Fox News reports, “Records show she has more than enough to plunk down on an apartment in the U.S. capital.” Fox News adds that Ocasio-Cortez “reported having between $15,001 and $50,000 in her checking account as of the end of April 2018, according to a Financial Disclosure Report she submitted to the clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives. The financial disclosure also reveals that she has an investment account valued between $1,001 and $15,000.”

[…]

That minimum of $15,000 that Ocasio-Cortez had in the bank is 15 times the amount 57% of average Americans had in their savings, as USA Today reported in May 2018. USA Today stated, “The average American has less than $4,000 in savings, while 57% of U.S. adults have less than $1,000 to their names.”

Like all elected members of Congress, Ocasio-Cortez will earn $174,000 annually.

AOC knows exactly how to combat “climate change.”

It involves World War II.

Specifically, it involves the blueprint used by the allied forces to defeat the Nazis.

WATCH:

Maybe AOC should check out this report, in which a NASA scientist warns of strange solar activity and record cold.

Here’s an interview with Ocasio-Cortez where she claims capitalism won’t always exist:
