It’s frustrating how these late night shows have all become so political. They are all hyper-critical of Conservatives and especially when it comes to President Trump.
It seems like they have all become incapable of non-political comedy.
They usually comment on and lampoon the “news of the day,” except in one recent instance.
Despite the racist controversy surrounding Democrat Virginia Governor Ralph Northam dominating the news cycle for days, late-night hosts Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon have avoided the subject in their monologues.
Northam’s yearbook page from the East Virginia Medical School, in 1984, went viral because it included an image of him in blackface and another person in a KKK robe.
While Northam’s racist yearbook page and bizarre press conference led national news and were mocked by several late-night hosts, they were left unmentioned by Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon.
Now why would that be?
Is it because Northam is a democrat?
That could be, but this didn’t seem to get in the way of other late night comedians having fun at Governor Northam’s expense.
According to Joseph A. Wulfsohn of Fox News, ‘“The Daily Show’ host Trevor Noah referred to the Democratic governor as a “blackface connoisseur” for his expertise regarding how difficult it is to remove shoe polish off your face.”
“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert hit the Virginia politician for saying he ‘finally had a chance’ to sit down and look at the photo from the yearbook.”
‘“I’m guessing that wearing blackface is one of those things you would remember doing, like skydiving or your first time,’ Colbert told his audience.”
‘“Late Night’ host Seth Meyers poked fun at Northam for not identifying whether he was the one in blackface or in the KKK hood, calling it a ‘real lose-lose.’”
‘“That’s like being asked whether you’re Erik or Lyle Menendez,’ Meyers quipped.”
So why would Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon opt out of taking some cheap shots at the Virginia Governor’s expense?
Aha! I should have known.
It’s because both of these so called “comedians” have worn black face in their own pasts!
What a couple of liberal hypocrites!
Joseph A. Wulfsohn reports that, “Kimmel wore blackface on numerous occasions, impersonating NBA Hall of Famer Karl Malone as well as former daytime talk show host Oprah Winfrey in his Comedy Central series ‘The Man Show.’”
And, “Fallon also appeared in blackface during his days on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ impersonating Chris Rock in a sketch.”
Talk about selective liberal outrage!
But they can get away with it because no one will call them on it except Fox News, MrEricksonRules, and maybe a few others.
Stay thirsty my friends, and remember to keep your eyes and ears open for “fake news,” liberal propaganda, and, as in the case here, liberal propaganda by omission.
The liberal mindset is, “If we don’t mention it or recognize it…, then it didn’t happen.”
