Apparently the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States of America has left many people unhinged. I’m not talking about the Soros paid protesters (Fifteen dollars and hour, in the words of Jeff Spicoli, “righteous bucks.”) I’m talking about the celebrities. Yes, I would expect this from the Hollywood elite, but the branch of celebrity that I’m most stunned by are comedians.
Patton Oswalt, Jim Jeffries, Sarah Silverman, Amy Schumer, Louis CK, the list goes on and on. I’m fine that they are not Trump fans, but they are basically off the rails with no logic in his win and most disappointingly, not funny at all. Be against Trump, but do it with some funny jokes, not comparing him with Hitler. (That’s a really original train of thought.) The level of Trump jokes are disturbingly mediocre.
All these comedians think they are George Carlin, shut up and go back to writing dick jokes. You are not political pundits and you’re not only making fools of yourselves, you’re alienating audiences who have been fans for a long time.
Donald Trump may be making America great again, but he is unintentionally ruining comedy. Maybe there will be a rise of a Trump-like comic that will make comedy great again and deport these overpaid hacks to the cruise ships they deserve to be on.
