Gutfeld on late-night comedy's response to the election

The website Deadline recently performed an autopsy on late-night comedy’s run under Trump, revealing the pathetic bubble the entertainment industry lives in. 

One showrunner said, “After Trump — we deserve to have some frivolity,” as if they didn’t have enough. That’s like CNN’s Chris Cuomo saying he needs a bigger ego.

Yet, to them, writing anti-Trump yucks is as grueling as fighting fires or terrorists. 

What small people with huge blind spots.

No humor to be found there?

Hell, my producer put that together in minutes! And that was what four teams of late-night producers couldn’t do in four years!

But I guess those targets hit too close to home — and their paychecks.

So these elitist whiners — who despised a president that put fewer body bags at our doorstep and more cash in your wallet — are relieved.

They need “frivolity” not because they experienced any harm Trump did to the country but because Trump put an “owie” on their psyches. 

And that’s the biggest joke of all.
