Can anyone say “Finally!” I never understood why the more outspoken comedians (Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Conan O’Brien, SNL, etc…) never seem to make a good crack about our current president. I mean I can understand it from a political perspective, they are supporting their champion.
But I can’t figure out how they never once made fun of him. I’m no comedian, but I make fun of everyone. My friends make fun of everyone, my parents make fun of everyone. I surround myself with funny people because I truly believe laughter is the best medicine.
If you have a funny bone in your body you tend to exercise it on everyone around you. Friends, family, teachers, actors, my husband, and even random people on the street are susceptible. It’s not malicious, it’s just for fun.
It’s a coping mechanism. I use humor to cope. I may be in stressful or a tense situation or it could be because I’ve got my sassy pants on. I find it very strange that in the realm of comedians (who for sure use humor not just as a coping mechanism, but as a way to relate to humanity) refuse to make any jokes about President Obama.
