WASHINGTON, May 11, 2017 – First the political left and then most of the fellow-traveling media were shocked… shocked at Donald Trump’s surprise victory in the 2016 U.S. Presidential sweepstakes. Then they were outraged, quickly vowing, like President George H.W. Bush after the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, that this travesty of the political status quo “will not stand.”
Ever since that fateful day, Washington Democrats have spewed out a constant stream of invective, innuendo and accusations against the still-developing Trump Administration while throwing everything but the kitchen sink at Trump’s efforts to govern America like a real President, not an Organizer-in-Chief.
For their part, 95 percent of the media finally lost what little control and objectivity they had left, revealing themselves, had there been any doubt, for what they long have been: lap dog propagandists for the organized American left.
In lock step with the media, the entertainment world also arose nearly as one to join the so-called “Resistance.” Night after night, this has been most clearly evident in network and cable TV’s now thoroughly politicized late night talk shows.
Once the comic highlight of long-running shows like “The Tonight Show” under Johnny Carson, each late night program’s opening comic monologue back in the day used to be topical, fresh, new and funny, hitting on every day events as well as topical political material that more or less equally lampooned each side of the aisle.
Today, however, these monologues have been transformed into unending, one-sided, anti-Trump, anti-Republican, anti-U.S. and anti-Deplorable rants and diatribes, looking to score knee-jerk hits with their always left-liberal big city live audiences.
The problem is that even for some Democrats, this increasingly stale and predictable material is getting nastier and more vulgar and disgusting day after day. The “jokes” are retreads of yesterday’s “jokes.” The monologues are getting more hysterical and unhinged. The left-wing virtue-signaling has become increasingly obvious. And, perhaps worst of all, this accumulated junk has completely jumped the shark. It’s not funny any more. It’s boring.
