Why Jimmy Fallon is wrong when he says he’s not equipped to do anti-Trump jokes

  • “You don’t have to copy (Stephen) Colbert’s format, or imitate (Seth) Meyers’ style,” says Marykate Jasper. “You don’t have to address every nightmare act of this administration (because Lord knows there are so many). But you do have an obligation to mock the cruelty and ignorance that’s threatening your entire audience. Just look at how Jimmy Kimmel, who hardly qualifies as a razor-witted political analyst, took on the healthcare debate with heart and humor. You can highlight the important issues in your own style – and you are, quite bluntly, morally obligated to.”
