Even Stephen Colbert has used homophobic jokes to attack the president, but in recent days Kimmel and Handler have come under fire for using gay jokes to attack conservatives. "Why do 'progressive' comedians so readily jump to homophobic jokes when it comes to mocking conservatives?" asks Ira Madison III. "Either insinuating that they like receiving anal sex via bottoming—or any other homosexual sex act—is the surefire way to knock someone down a peg. Because insisting that they’re gay must be the ultimate insult, right? Because the insinuation that a man might want to have sex with another man is somehow funny. The act itself is comical."
