TV 5 Late-Night Hosts Told the Same Joke Last Night

Just in case you didn’t believe us when we said that Trump is bad for comedy, here is exhibit 483: Last night, five late-night hosts, each with a team of writers, told essentially the same joke.

Yeah. We wake up each morning and discover the joke is still in office.

What amazes me the most about Trump is that he appears to be so totally unaware that he's the butt of jokes.

I saw the title and my first thought was: what did Trump do this time? The content did not surprise me.

Speaking of "butt of jokes", I'm more amazed by the fact that I don't think Trump realizes that his last name is a UK slang term for "fart".

The same thing comes out of both ends of him.

Trump may have forever ruined parody and satire. Both strive to go over-the-top and heavily rely on exaggeration to drive a point home. The trouble is, there is no exaggeration with Trump. Trump is the exaggeration. Not only is he as awful as you think he is, he's even MORE awful than you think he is. You tell any joke about him and it'll turn out that not only is the joke accurate, the joke is also a mild understatement. Thus, your joke is rendered quaint, though it can also become a Funny Aneurysm Moment, to use TV Tropes lingo.
