The joke’s actually on the lefties of late night

It’s not just the rigged mainstream media that’s stacked against President Trump, it’s the late night show circuit, whose haughty left wing hosts — with no semblance of balance or fair play — continue to ruthlessly mock him and every move his administration makes on a nightly basis.

It should come as no surprise that the “Fake News” media and these same partisan late night hosts treated former President Barack Obama with much greater deference and respect during his time in office — not because he was more deserving, it was simply because Obama was a fellow Democrat. It’s that simple.

And the hypocrisy is astounding.

For months, crybaby left-wingers in the entertainment industry and beyond have slammed Trump for being a “bully,” something he was portrayed as throughout the presidential campaign. Of course, these same late night hosts are blind to the bullying behavior they’ve displayed while ganging up on the president every night.

Just turn on Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel, Bill Maher, Trevor Noah or Saturday Night Live and you’re bound to hear an anti-Trump joke. Isn’t it funny to see the same hosts who lambasted candidate Trump for “bullying” other candidates on the campaign trail are now piling on and ridiculing the leader of our country like fifth-graders on a playground.

Congratulations on being Class A hypocrites.

You know what would take actual courage and independent thought? If one of these late night hosts would break away from the pack and find something positive to say about our president and the decisions he’s making for our country. Maybe one of them could point out the fact that under his leadership, we’ve added trillions of dollars to our economy, created more than 1 million jobs and dramatically increased the GDP.

These accomplishments, of course, occurred amid the seemingly never-ending onslaught of negative press coverage and lowbrow jokes at his expense.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that a study conducted by George Mason University found Trump has been on the receiving end of more negative jokes from late night hosts than any president in history. In Trump’s first 100 days, he was the butt of more jokes than Obama and George W. Bush faced their entire first year.

I wonder how the network executives will respond when the 60 million Americans who elected Trump to the White House change the channel. They’ll find out pretty quickly that the joke is on them.
