For nearly two years’ conservatives have had to endure one endless nightly assault by comedians as they savaged any and all GOP presidential candidates. But they saved their worse abusive verbal weaponry for Republican candidate and nominee Donald J. Trump. Now it is probably safe to say that Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show and Stephen Colbert of The Late Show are crying themselves off of their respective stages.
For the nation’s conservatives, Christians and regular heartland folk who love their religious values, safe borders and paychecks that in the past paid the mortgage, and health bill before Obama, liberal comedians were more than a nuisance.
Nighttime liberal comedians have made millions of dollars by mocking hard working Americans who happened to support traditional conservative values. It was nothing to see their insipid so-called humor pouring out of co-workers’ mouths at office watercoolers, lunchrooms and cafeterias or shared on YouTube. Liberal friends would quote their comedic verbiage as if it were gospel handed down by their God Saul Alinsky or Goddess Hillary Clinton.
Humor is certainly humor, but their viciousness and meanness was more than a joke or two at conservatives’ and religious families’ expense. It was crystal clear that their creatively caustic lines were verbalized at the behest of liberal elites in boardrooms in Washington D.C. and New York city as well as DNC and Clinton campaign headquarters.
The conservative viewership these champions of off-color humor did not seem to realize was a good chunk of their audience. They were savaging their so-called “knuckle-dragging” Bible clinching, 2nd amendment defending viewers. They did not care because their arrogance was immeasurable. Then, of course, there was the Donald!
Trump was in a whole new liberal comedic targeted category for the Democrat comedy cadre to eviscerate. NBC’s late night host Seth Meyers and Trevor Noah of Comedy Central’s the Daily Show shared their anti-Trump, verbally assaultive non-wit with their audience every evening. Interestingly enough, their branding of Trump may well have pacified millions of non-voting Millennials into staying home from the polls on Election Day and curling up in their comfy safe space.
Meanwhile, the adults in the room sickened and repulsed by the verbal targets that had been continuously painted upon their backs by the liberal comics and their nightly tirades, decided to vote…and vote in huge numbers. The nightly rants were unknowingly providing the very nuclear voting fuel Trump supporters and conservative voters needed to trounce Hillary and other Democrats at the polls.
The night after the presidential election the shell-shocked comedians stood on stage with their jaws inches off of the stage. After the Trump revolution had claimed victory over their darling favorite Hillary Clinton, their suffering and disbelief was all the humor Trump voters needed.
In fact, the day after Trump’s presidential triumph, Fallon sat at his desk and bemoaned, “We’re gonna need some laughs tonight.”
How can I say this gently? Fallon, we the people had the last laugh.
America’s heartland got its country back. Meanwhile, you and all the other liberal comedians on loan to the DNC and the Clinton campaign can sit and wallow in your own self-indulgent misery. You earned every moment of it.
