Has Anyone Noticed That The MSM & Late Night Talk Shows Have Been Showing More Of TFG....

and Putin - than Biden and Putin.

TFG is a thing of the past. We have a new President and he's doing a damn good job - yet the MSM and Late Night Shows seem to want to focus more on the past and showing how bad TFG was instead.

I don't want to see the mug of TFG on these shows anymore. He should be in exile and be long forgotten. Yet it seems like they want to keep his presence alive and kicking and keep on showing images of him - like if we don't know what he looks like.

I'm trying to forget this guy - yet they won't let us.

Stop it already!!!!

4. The late night shows became overtly partisan during Trump

They kind of stopped doing jokes at some point and just started talking about what an asshole he was. Which, fine. But aren't they supposed to be funny? They ceased being funny. It's kind of why Colbert started losing his shit at what Jon Stewart was saying the other night - he knew his audience wouldn't like it. So he tossed in a lazy Ron Johnson crack.

Knowing that they now cater to a more expressly partisan audience, they cannot leave TFG alone.

Biden can be made fun of. Woody Harrelson doing Biden on SNL was hilarious. I mean, c'mon, this is damn funny:



But late night got so lazy during Trump, it seems like they have no idea what to do. I stopped watching any of the shows early into Trump's term. I was already on edge about him most of the time. Tune in somewhere to be entertained and get to hear even more about him, and not even in an entertaining way? Hard pass.

It's why I never got into Samantha Bee. She was brilliant and funny on the Daily Show. On her show, it seems like she's just screaming in rage the entire time. It isn't funny.

Conan's the only one getting late night right, IMO. He knows the audience just wants to laugh. And he's sadly going away soon.

6. Stephen Colbert is the highest rated show

Colbert was laughing at Jon Stewart. He made a Ron Johnson joke because hes very quick. Colbert is partisan, hysterical, and top rated.

12. He should be receiving the treatment given to former Soviet leaders like Khrushchev and

in Apartheid South Africa. Their names were dropped from all media and in S. Africa people who had been banned for non-compliance with Apartheid were not even allowed to have visitors at their own homes.

Though I certainly wouldn't approve of that as a national policy.

On the other hand, it is necessary to continue to inform the public about all the new revelations of corruption.
