the candor of late night

Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Myers do their best within the framework of their mandate to educate the populace on the horrors of this presidency. Armed only with wit and humor, they endeavor to make light of a subject that is increasingly becoming supremely unfunny; their joke cracking only thinnly veiling their contempt for the morally bankrupt nitwit who currently occupies their white house.

With each passing day new allegations emerge regarding prostitutes and back room deals using crooked lawyers and, as Robert Mueller inches closer to the truth, some new diversion surfaces which is served like raw meat to his base of "deplorables". This time it is the ban prohibiting transgender people from military service.

America has traditionally prided itself on having the freedom to lampoon its politicians and yet things are not as free as first meets the eye because the system is rigged. The running of the country is performed by a tiny sliver of men who control the levers and pretend to hear grievances. But every little bit helps and I commend these late night hosts for their steadfastness in trying to call out a man who inspires nothing but disgust in all who care about real freedom.
