According to a story in themrcblog.com:
The Daily Caller reported that though Leno is not a fan of Trump, he’s also not a fan of the pathetic way that the current crop of late night hosts attack him on a daily basis. These days, late night hosts like Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah and John Oliver spent the entirety of their shows hurling vile and oftentimes unfunny insults at Trump. Leno said this week that if he were still hosting the “Tonight Show,” he wouldn’t not be attacking the president nearly as much as his fellow hosts do.
“I enjoy bringing people together,” Leno told Page Six. “If [mocking the president] is a constant thing on a nightly basis, eventually you’re all doing the same joke.”
Leno will be performing at the Hamptons this weekend at Guild Hall in East Hampton for a benefit function. There, he has said that he will take a few shots at the president, but he has also promised to fill his show with jokes about other topics as well.
It’s totally normal for late night hosts to joke about the president, but the current crop of late night personalities have taken this concept way too far. SHARE this story if you agree with Jay Leno that they should find something else to talk about!
