TDS: Gaffigan, Stern Blame Smith’s Oscar Slap on … Trump

Suffice to say Trump Derangement Syndrome didn’t finish when “The Apprentice” star left the Oval Office.

Late evening comedians nonetheless feast on something tied to Donald Trump, actual or imagined (That helps them ignore the Biden administration’s calamitous yr in workplace).

Entire information cycles exist to maintain flimsy narratives meant to harm the previous President in play.

And, for choose comedians, any information merchandise is grist for extra Trump bashing.

The newest examples?

We dont deserve the brilliance of @chrisrock. When youre a star, they allow you to do it. You can do something, Donald Trump and Will Smith.”

There’s zero connection between Smith’s actions and something Trump-related. None. Yet Gaffigan shared that message together with his 3.2 million Twitter followers.

And then he had second ideas.

Nothing of the kind occurred with the so-called “King of All Media.” At least not but.

Howard Stern, who not resembles the free speech warrior who conquered terrestrial radio, made an identical argument from his satellite tv for pc perch.

Stern, understandably aghast at Smith’s actions, used the incident to smite his favorite target.

Where is safety? Not one individual got here out, as a result of hes Will Smith. This is how Trump will get away with s***.

That received’t get him fawning headlines.

All he must do is bash Trump in any trend and he’s assured press protection.
