Jay Leno has slammed late-night comedy shows, saying they have become unwatchable due to their anti-Trump obsession

 Jay Leno has slammed Hollywood over its anti-Trump coverage, claiming late-night chat shows have become “utterly sh*t.” In an interview released Wednesday, Leno told The Hollywood Reporter that late-night hosts are making audiences depressed, instead of making them laugh.

 

From The Hollywood Reporter:

THR: What do you think of how late-night has evolved to cover the Trump administration?

Late-night has always been pretty topical. The only trouble is now everyone has the same topic. (Laughs.) It’s all depressing Trump stuff. And they all do a great job. Seth Meyers is a great writer; Jimmy Kimmel does a good job; Jimmy Fallon does a great job. I like Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah [on Comedy Central] and Samantha Bee [on TBS]. The trouble is that there’s such negativity now. When I did the show, Bush was dumb and Clinton was horny and it was human problems. Now it’s all anti-women, anti-LGBT, anti-Muslim, anti-Mexican, anti-Salvadoran; it’s such a negative thing. God bless all the late-night hosts, they make it funny, but ultimately, it’s depressing. You don’t really watch late-night TV to get away from reality anymore; now it’s more in your face. You laugh but then you go to bed going, “Oh man, the world is really pretty rough.”And it’s not, it’s one man that causes all these problems!

THR: Who are you watching? Who do you think is doing their best work right now?

I’m a joke guy; I don’t really watch the celebrity interviews because I’ve interviewed all those people already. I watch Seth Meyers, Fallon, Kimmel. I do try to watch them all. I like to hear their jokes. That’s the hardest thing to do — write a joke — and it’s really hard when you have to write basically the same joke every night. I don’t mean that in an insulting way. And they do it, they’re really creative and really funny. It’s not the lazy kind of version of a joke you’ve heard before. People are really writing good stuff and it’s impressive.

Informationliberation.com reports: All the shows are unwatchable. They don’t write jokes anymore, they just deliver DNC talking points and their live audience serves as a laugh track.

How many different variations of “Drumpf” and “Blumpf” can a person listen to?

The average late-night viewer is a liberal with Trump Derangement Syndrome who watches these shows for therapy.

The real kings of comedy these days are anonymous trolls on 4Chan and Twitter who are completely unrestrained by political correctness.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Newsweek’s Headquarters
Raided By The NYPD

The headquarters of Newsweek was raided by the NYPD Thursday morning. Police reportedly took photos of the magazine’s servers.

New York Post reports:

About two dozen NYPD officers and investigators from the Manhattan district attorney’s office raided the offices of Newsweek and its parent company, IBT Media, on Thursday.

IBT Media was co-founded by Jonathan Davis and Etienne Uzac. The IRS placed a $1.2 million federal tax lien against Uzac in December 2017.

The agents were said to be photographing servers in the offices, but not downloading any files at the offices on 7 Hanover Square, according to sources.

Few details have emerged from the raid.

“Looking into reports that the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office @ManhattanDA raided Newsweek/IBT Offices today….sources say police have been there for hours. The DA has declined to comment,” tweeted reporter Avi Asher-Schapiro.

Newsweek is also in the news Thursday after an “insider” told The Wrap editor Jon Levine that the magazine has abandoned journalism for “rage clicks,” in the Trump-era.

“Newsweek was once a premiere media organization and an incredible springboard for young journalists hoping to grow a name for themselves,” the source told Levine.

“The company culture has turned the newsroom into a toxic work environment, while the publication has descended into a content farm for last-resort clickbait,” the source added.
