Jimmy Fallon defends choice to not join anti-Trump bandwagon

jimmy-fallonNBC’s Jimmy Fallon is defending his decision to keep his show from becoming an anti-Trump crusade like other late night hosts have, saying many of the president’s words and actions are just “too serious” for joke fodder.

“With Trump, it’s just like every day’s a new thing. He gives a lot of material. A lot of stuff is hard to even make a joke about,” Fallon said in a preview of an NBC “Today” show interview to air Sunday. “It’s just too serious.”

Too be sure, several late-night TV hosts have, since essentially the start of Trump’s winning 2016 White House bid, made attacking and satirizing the president a big part of their monologues.

Among them are Steven Colbert, host of the CBS’ “Late Show,” and Jimmy Kimmel, of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

    Auhhh Well !! It was fun while it lasted Huh Jimmy !!

    Smart man, has eyes to see and ears to hear and wants to keep his show and his salary. Nobody watches late night TV or sports or movies to get political jargon, we get that daily, people need to back off Trump and soon.

    His accomplishments are growing as I type eventually, anyone going against him will be labeled and branded a fool or a traitor.

    I stopped watching Seth Meyers because I got tired of his non-stop attack on President Trump. If he would have done the same for President Obama my opinion would have been different.

    Jimmy Fallon seems to be continuing the legacy of Johnny Carson and Jay Leno by trying to stay somewhat even-handed in his jokes. He has a wide variety of guests, comedy bits and talent on his show. The rest of these “comedians” are sore losers because Hillary Clinton lost the election. Most of their stations would probably have more viewers if they pulled these guys off and replaced them with reruns of Laverne & Shirley or some other sitcom.

    Ultimately the success of these comedians and their shows are based on viewers. I’m going to guess many people are going to turn these guys off once they get tired of their mean-spirited jokes.

  • Navy Bob says:

    So because one of the late night “comedians” decides not to be a mouthpiece for the DNC and the anti-Trump movement, he should be ostracized? If he were anti-Hillary or, God forbid, pro-Trump the left would be calling for boycotts. I guess speech is only to be considered “free” if the liberals, democrats and the media (redundant) agree with it. Colbert is nothing more than a less funny Keith Olberman.

    I’m not that crazy about Fallon, I can or leave him. But I can say one thing in his favor, good business move for him not spreading that junk about Trump. One of these days many, many more of our people will recognize a lot of the good things that Trump has done. Yes, I did vote for him and I’d do it again at the drop of a hat. Look, I can understand making fun about our President, they have done that for just about all of them in the past. But folks, not the nasty remarks like they have towards Trump. The SWAMP that he brought out into the open. was and is real!! We see it all the time, our government is NOT completely honest with “We the People”, they aren’t , and that has everything to do with the SWAMP! We need TERM LIMITS, we need our Congressional members to live under the same rules and conditions that “WE THE PEOPLE” do! They have created an ” ELITIST” government and they need to be sent back to where they came from! Lord help us!

    Good business decision. Let all of the rest of the Progressive fools take the fall for just no longer being funny.
    Political jokes become, well…more political than funny when there is no balance between one political faction and another. Jon Stewart used to alternate between silly things that Republicans did and silly things that Democrats did to make jokes about, and in most cases it was funny. Political bashing of one person is just not funny.

    Let me put it this way, Fallon is NOT even a little funny. He is an “ensemble player” that made it on SNL. Without an ensemble to surround him he struggles to be funny. Much of what he does is just plain “foolishness”. I suspect his ratings are floundering much like Colbert. Fallon may even be getting heat from whatever group follows him. I used to like Eddie Murphy on SNL. Then I had the opportunity to see him live and he was awful unless one finds every third word out of his mouth being profanity funny. I do not and I am far from being a prude. Profanity and smut is not funny.

    Fallon you have Fallen.
