Norm MacDonald Gets Booted From ‘Tonight Show.’ Here’s Why.

Published

on

Comedian Norm MacDonald was supposed to make an appearance on the Tonight Show Tuesday night to promote his new Netflix show, but NBC cancelled his appearance after he made some disparaging remarks about the #MeToo movement.

Macdonald has a new Netflix show premiering Friday, called “Norm Macdonald Has A Show,” and was set to discuss his latest project with Jimmy Fallon, but after the former “Saturday Night Live” star’s interview with the Hollywood Reporter was published, the network canceled, citing “sensitivity to our audience.”

In an interview in which Macdonald seemed to criticize and awkwardly defend everything he was asked about (he talked about how the Constitution was designed to survive President Donald Trump, but also said the world was not as bad as he feared it would be with Trump as president), one segment stuck out. It appears as though once a hashtag is deemed saintly, any criticism becomes unacceptable. “Superman” and “Mission Impossible” star Henry Cavill found this out the hard way just a month ago.

Now it’s Macdonald’s turn. He told the Hollywood Reporter that he was “happy the #MeToo movement has slowed down a bit.”

“It used to be, ‘One hundred women can’t be lying.’ And then it became, ‘One woman can’t lie.’ And that became, ‘I believe all women.’ And then you’re like, ‘What?’ Like, that Chris Hardwick guy I really thought got the blunt end of the stick there,” Macdonald said.

Naturally, this quote was left out of most media accounts of Macdonald’s cancelled appearance.

Macdonald was then asked about an accused person admitting to wrongdoing, to which the comedian responded:

“The model used to be: admit wrongdoing, show complete contrition and then we give you a second chance. Now it’s admit wrongdoing and you’re finished. And so the only way to survive is to deny, deny, deny. That’s not healthy — that there is no forgiveness. I do think that at some point it will end with a completely innocent person of prominence sticking a gun in his head and ending it. That’s my guess. I know a couple of people this has happened to.”

Now, hilariously, NBC was the network who tried to stop reporter Ronan Farrow from publishing his piece about the sexual abuses of film mogul Harvey Weinstein, the incident that more or less launched the #MeToo movement.

It’s obvious then, that these folks were trying to make up for their colossal booboo and for the flack they’ve taken for it ever since. Sorry, but it’s too little, too late. Any attempt to save face over that is going to be seen for what it is. Damage control.

They don’t give a rip about their audience. If they did, they would’ve been all over Farrow’s story. But they weren’t. In fact, it seems they might have been trying to help cover Weinstein’s tracks.

In the end, what they did to MacDonald is pure hypocrisy.

Fox Reporter Recoils After Getting DIRTY LOOK from POTUS

If you believed the MSM trope about President Trump and Fox News being two peas in a pod, you may want to watch this video.

Fox News

In the seemingly never-ending fight over “fake news”, and whose bias lands where today, the left side of the mainstream media sure loves pointing fingers at Fox News. It’s not hard to see why:  Fox has been consistently crushing CNN in the ratings, as the latter network continues to foment their “resistance” schtick to no avail.  Now, with the Mueller report currently being thumbed through by anyone working late enough over at the Department of Justice, and with enough clearance to gaze upon it, the media machine is about to kick into overdrive in ways that none of our forefathers could have imagined. Remember:  This is a time of nigh-unprecedented division in our nation, with the only other possible period of similar unrest coming during the 1860’s, well before the idea of “24 hour news” was even a gleam in a dreamer’s eye.  The nation is a powder keg thanks to this ridiculous rhetoric, and tensions are running ever-s0-high in Washington DC. And while Donald Trump is often testy, especially with reporters, one Fox News employee had an incredibly chilling experience with the President this week. Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts reported Friday that President Trump “glared at me like I’ve never seen him glare at me before” over questions on criticism of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). The moment was captured on video as well. https://twitter.com/jonkarl/status/1109094737343074305 It certainly doesn’t look like the President’s purported love affair with Fox News is living up to the leftist media’s hype.

Tucker Goes OFF on RussiaGate Hoaxers, Demands Apologies if Mueller Report is a Bust

While the left prepares to be let down by Mueller’s findings, Tucker Carlson is gearing up for a long and arduous fight.

Rumors are swirling today that Robert Mueller is nearing the end of his longstanding “RussiaGate” investigation, and the democrats are figuratively foaming at the mouth. For nearly two years, our nation has been caught up in the twisted, sordid conspiracy theory that Donald Trump, the President of The United States and an extremely wealthy man, has been working for the Russian government in order to get elected. Some say it has to do with a Trump Tower in Moscow, others say it’s due to a blackmail scheme involving unsanitary acts with Russian prostitutes.  In either case, Robert Mueller has been working on the case for two years, only managing to nab a few indictments of low-level Trump acquaintances for crimes not indicative of any “Russian collusion” storyline. Now, as Mueller hemorrhages staff and “no further indictments” seem likely, the nation patiently waits for a final report that they may not even get to see. Furthermore, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has already begun his work as a “heat shield” for the Mueller report by downplaying expectations of the final product. Fox News host Tucker Carlson is taking things a step further, however, demanding that those who perpetrated the longstanding hoax be held accountable. “There need to be consequences for this,” Carlson said. “Once the Mueller report appears, and it becomes incontrovertible that, whatever his faults, Donald Trump did not collude with the Russians, the many people who’ve persistently claimed on the basis of no evidence that he did collude with the Russians must be punished. Not indicted or imprisoned, but thoroughly shamed and forced to apologize. If Republicans spent three full years falsely claiming that Barack Obama colluded with the government of Iran, would those who claimed it, ever work in politics or media again? That’s a rhetorical question.  Lying…
