As if we didn’t have enough reasons to boycott Hollywood and all its TV cousins, Comedy Central has just given us more.
The people who insult our intelligence daily have decided that the offensive language, protests, smears and accusations are just not enough. They want to smack us some more until we wake up and decide that they are right and noble beings and that flyover conservatives are the scum of the earth.
Pick any day of the past few months and you’ll find a “celebrity” on the attack. I just saw Rob Reiner of “meathead” fame railing somewhere against Trump. He even brought his dad, Carl Reiner, with him to join in the fun. Frankly, most of us thought Carl had slipped on his last banana peel and gone onto whatever “reward” awaits him.
No, somehow the old slapstick comedian found the strength to come on some vile show and join in the slapping.
Another “comedian” – Tina Fey – scolded white women who voted for Trump. She said we “can’t look away” from the election outcome as if we had committed some crime against humanity. Personally I don’t want to look away from the election outcome. It is a delightful thing to recall every morning.
Yes, any day of the week you can find a “star-ette” complaining, scolding and berating the president and the people who elected him. Any day of the week and just about anywhere. I’ve even seen chefs scolding us in food magazines. The Trump hate is thorough, isn’t it?
Now add another “comedy” show. From Circa News comes this:
Comedy Central is adding a dedicated Trump parody show to its line up.
“The President Show,” officially announced Monday morning, will air on Thursdays, starting April 27 at 11:30 p.m. It features President Trump impersonator Anthony Atamanuik as Trump, with Peter Grosz playing Vice President Pence.
The show features Atamanuik as Trump, “bypassing the crooked media by hosting a late-nigths (sic) how (sic) direct from the Oval Office,” according to the press release.
I don’t know who Atamanuik is; I don’t think I’ve missed much.
Put this show in the same category as an earlier Comedy Central effort. Remember “That’s My Bush!”? No? It didn’t exactly own the airwaves.
It was on April 4 to May 23, 2001. It was meant to demean Bush and make him look like an idiot.
This one will attempt a similar outcome. And it will probably have a similar outcome – short lived.
