I got a super cheap 1-year subscription a couple of years ago, just for shits and grins. It wasn't as funny as it used to be. Every cover was a Trump bash. I have a few old ones, including the one from my birth month (Batman TV series cover).

Same as Mike.

All I really recall is Spy vs Spy and the page you fold just right in thirds to get a different picture.

You people had a deprived childhood, then. Bet you never knew the joy of wacky packs, either.

other than have a mascot that could be drawn to resemble W for a one time gag, not sure what point it served in this century.

The Trump stuff irritates me. Every comedian, every tv show...and its never original. We get it, enough already.

For political pundits, not comedians and TV shows to rehash the same shit that has nothing to do with politics.

Agree. Even my liberal friends are tired of the late night shows, especially SNL having one theme. Bash Trump.

Stop apologizing for him, he constantly provides shit to make fun of.

You're whiny and obsessive hate for trump prevents any reasonable opinion on the matter and it's clear as fucking day you haven't actually seen the type of shit I'm talking about.

I'm not apologizing for Trump, he's a cluster fuck. The comedians and TV writers attempted at humor regarding Trump is just typical liberal obsession that fails to be funny 90% of the time. It's not funny...its them making a political statement, nothing more. Comedians should get laughs, not cheers. And nobody is laughing during these, they're agreeing with politics. That's not entertainment.

Did you read his post? He's not saying anything good about Trump. He said he's a cluster fuck in fact. Just that the constant bashing by comedians and tv shows is getting boring and unfunny.

And unoriginal. The worst crime among comedians is stealing jokes or loosely copying material. Well that's exactly what's happening. They're all saying the same shit. They're unfunny hacks and its tiring.

On a similar note, it's why most women comics are terrible, because the vast majority of their act is about sex. Nikki Glaser for example is really popular right now, but balf her personality is talking about her liking it in the ass.

I'd also add that a huge part of the annoyance is that people love things like sports, comedy, TV shows, etc for entertainment and to escape the realities of life. In what, the last decade, politics have progressively nvaded every one of those. It damn near ruins them. There's plenty of political sources out there, there's no need to fuck up escapism.

So watch something else.

It’s called the free market ya’ll don’t support em and they’ll rot on the vine.

Fucks sake, there are like 4 million channels now, plus on demand streaming. Go find something that supports your political views and watch it.
