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.

Ghislaine Maxwell, Confidant of Jeffrey Epstein, Has Been Arrested In New Hampshire

Published

on

Ghislaine Maxwell, a former girlfriend and confidant of the late Jeffrey Epstein — who probably didn’t kill himself, ha-ha — has been arrested in the state of New Hampshire according to new reports being blasted across most major news outlets this morning. The FBI confirmed that the accused madam was officially taken into custody at 8:30 a.m. in Branford, N.H. The charges she’s been arrested over have not yet been revealed. Makes you sort of wonder if the same fate the befell Epstein might come knocking on Maxwell’s door, doesn’t it? Eerie. Here’s more from Fox News: Maxwell, the daughter of late British media magnate Robert Maxwell, has been accused in civil court filings of facilitating a sex-trafficking operation that brought girls — some as young as 14 — to Epstein’s Manhattan home, though until Thursday she had not been formally charged with any criminal wrongdoing. While there have been reports that there were several others who “facilitated” Epstein’s alleged sexual abuse also being investigated, the main focus has been on Maxwell. Maxwell, 58, dated Epstein more than a decade ago and became a member of his tight inner circle until his August 10 jail-cell suicide. What this means is that Maxwell was privy to a lot of the same information that Epstein was and no doubt knew about all of his big time connections and whether or not those connections were involved in his pedophilia ring. If something did indeed happen to Epstein while in custody, then that would mean that Maxwell could potentially be a target as well. If something happens to her it will no doubt confirm all of the suspicions folks have had about the very strange timing of Epstein’s “suicide.” Back in May, Maxwell managed to win a request to delay questioning concerning a civil…

Virginia Puts New Monthly Limits On Handguns

Published

on

The Bill of Rights, contained within the United States Constitution, speaks in clear, easy-to-understand English, that the federal government does not have the authority in any capacity to infringe upon the God-given right to bear arms. Scholars have debated what this amendment means for many, many years, which is ridiculous, because it’s spelled out for them in the text itself and in the context in which the amendment was written. People have the right to own guns and the government can’t interfere with that. Bingo. However, big government nanny-state folk are only interested in finding new and creative ways to place as many limits on this right as possible, because an unarmed people are a whole lot easier to control. The state of Virginia has now adopted some of the strictest gun control measures in the country after a judge shot down a bid to block a ridiculous one-handgun-a-month limit from taking effect. Here’s more from The Free Beacon: Virginia Democrats made gun control a top priority after taking control of both the state legislature and governor’s mansion in 2019 and quickly pushed through one of the most restrictive packages in the country. Residents in the commonwealth are now subject to universal background checks, red flag laws, and a monthly limit on how many handguns they can purchase. Gun-rights activists had attempted to block the July 1 implementation date of those measures in separate suits. A state judge rejected a request to temporarily block the one-gun-a-month law on Thursday. The same group of gun-rights activists requested a stay in a new suit against the universal background check law, but were unable to secure a hearing before the law took effect. Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), which is involved in both current lawsuits and considering…
