Trump thrashed late night comedians as unfunny
He suggested that Republicans aren’t given ‘equal time’ to Democrats on television
Tweets came after Fox News ran a show against late night comedians
WASHINGTON, U.S. - U.S. President Donald Trump thrashed late night comedians on Saturday, after Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” aired a segment accusing late night comedians like Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel of “[taking] a hard turn to the left.”
Slamming late night comedians and the media on Twitter on Saturday morning, Trump suggested that Republicans aren’t given “equal time” to Democrats on television.
Trump tweeted, “Late Night host[s] are dealing with the Democrats for their very "unfunny" & repetitive material, always anti-Trump! Should we get Equal Time?”
He added, “More and more people are suggesting that Republicans (and me) should be given Equal Time on T.V. when you look at the one-sided coverage?”
Recently Kimmel has delivered emotional monologues against the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare and lawmakers’ responses to the mass shooting at a Las Vegas music festival.
Kimmel vehemently opposed the Graham-Cassidy bill after he slammed Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) for failing his own “Jimmy Kimmel test” for healthcare bills.
Cassidy said that the "Jimmy Kimmel test" meant he would only support a bill that would make sure that a childlike Kimmel’s, who was born with congenital heart disease, would not lack affordable health coverage.
This week, Kimmel discussed the Las Vegas shooting and said, “It’s the kind of thing that makes you want to throw up or give up” while slamming lawmakers for their response to the tragedy.
Kimmel said, “I don’t know why our so-called leaders continue to allow this to happen. Or maybe a better question is why do we continue to let them allow it to happen."
Earlier this year, a study found that Trump was the butt of more late-night jokes during his first 100 days in office than any recent president.
