Katie Couric's Trump Remarks puts her "Jeopardy!" future in jeopardy [View all]

(Oh but the LIBERALS are destroying the First Amendment, GTFOH!!!)

Producers at "Jeopardy!" are reportedly worried Katie Couric's recent remarks about Donald Trump and his supporters will turn off the show's largely conservative audience.

The former "Today" host — who's set to take over as a guest presenter on the trivia show in the wake of Alex Trebek's death — joined Bill Maher for a discussion about former President Donald Trump's legacy on the Jan. 15 edition of "Real Time."

During her appearance, Couric expressed frustration with congressional Republicans who she said seem to be, "believing the garbage that they are being fed 24/7 on the internet, by their constituents, and they bought into this big lie."

Couric added, "And the question is how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."
