1. Excellent!

Every one of the teevee anybodies has to do this relentlessly from now on until he is removed from office.

2. I sure agree!

And the late night guys can get away with pushing the envelope to make a point in a way that the news pundits can't - because they do it with humor, people expect it.

3. Satire can bring home a point

better than dry news for some. And being "not" news, they can go where the news can't, but I'm glad they are supposed to be mutually exclusive in a sense. The bad thing is that it's become hard to tell anymore.

4. I was also thinking that because they're on the commercial networks

It's less expected. Not everybody gets cable, and if they do, they have their favorites - those they tend to agree with. But I obviously notice that Colbert, Seth Meyers and now Jimmy Kimmel tend to skewer Trump every single night in a way that would cause offense among some people coming from Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O'Donnell or Joy Reid...

5. Great segment!

Seth does such a great job making Trump look like the idiot that he is and he does it in such an entertaining, humorous way.
