The problem, says Eve Peyser is that The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report signed off as Donald Trump became a presidential contender, or before. Comedy shows haven't really been able to deal with somebody like Trump, says Peyser -- like, for instance, SNL. "Four year later, Saturday Night Live’s political sketches are now extra stale, in part because they are structurally identical to what the show was doing before Trump — as far as SNL is concerned, nothing had really changed," says Peyser. "Kate McKinnon’s Elizabeth Warren is a dead ringer for Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton. Alec Baldwin’s Trump, in a bad toupee with a mouth full of spit, isn’t parodying the president, but simply imitating him. Trump, after all, performs the job of the political comedian, saying the quiet part loud, clowning around with power."
