The Clintons and the Kowtowing Comedians

By L. Brent Bozell III

Liberal comedians were outraged that the White House Correspondents Association brought on a Trump-bashing historian rather than a Trump-bashing comedian for its huge annual televised dinner on April 27— an exercise in narcissism if ever there was one. The message was the same, but history just isn’t as glamorous as comedy.

Two miles away from that event, Jordan Klepper — who flopped as a late-night replacement for Stephen Colbert on Comedy Central — bragged to an audience, “You are the only room tonight in D.C. that has the guts to put a president and a comedian on the same stage.”


Klepper was appearing as the paid comedian at the Bill and Hillary Clinton touring stage show. The notion that it took "guts" for the Clintons to put an obsequious liberal jester onstage with them — now, that's funny!

It's not at all funny — just pathetic — to pretend that the White House Correspondents' Association showed "guts" by pairing President Obama with comedians at its event. Over his eight years in office, Obama's in-house journalistic servants ordered up an array of patsies and flatterers, beginning with Wanda Sykes in 2009 and ending in 2016 with Larry Wilmore — who, by the way, also flopped on Comedy Central as a replacement for Stephen Colbert. Wilmore reached new depths of flattery and hailed Obama by saying, "Yo Barry, you did it, my (N-word)!"

Conservatives are always the targets at this dinner, visited with vicious insults, not humor. Sykes had to apologize for wishing Rush Limbaugh's kidneys would fail. She didn't apologize for also calling him the "20th hijacker" on 9/11 who "missed his flight" and should be waterboarded. During Wilmore's set, he uncorked nine incredibly unfunny jokes in which he smeared Sen. Ted Cruz as the "Zodiac Killer" — based on an addle-brained leftist internet meme about a serial killer who murdered people before Cruz was even born.

The morning after the dinner, Klepper was a guest on the CNN show "Reliable Sources," where Brian Stelter regularly hosts a conga line of whiny liberals who hate the president. Stelter asked whether a comedian should have been invited by the White House press. "Comedians don't need this dinner. There's plenty of clubs out there that are called comedy clubs that they can go to," Klepper replied. "It looks a little bit like they kowtowed to a president who says, we don't want to be made fun of."

This is coming from a "comedian" who actually kowtowed to the Clintons onstage the night before — most likely for money!

Stelter then aired snippets from a promotional YouTube video Klepper made with the Clintons to promote his new weekly show on Comedy Central. The shtick was this: Klepper asked the Clintons to help him find a GoFundMe campaign he could support, and one was raising money to get Hillary Clinton to record an audiobook of the Mueller report. She then did a reading of the report with a terrible impression of President Trump, saying, "The president slumped back in his chair and said, 'Oh, my God, this is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I'm (expletive bleeped).'" Vanity Fair magazine oozed it was a "dramatic reading for the ages."

Klepper told Stelter: "I think it was cathartic for her. I think it was cathartic for a lot of people to hear Hillary Clinton read the Mueller Report. I would listen to it."

The kowtowing was epic ... coming from a comedian who isn't.

  1. All these Dems are disgusting, that’s all w can say, ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING….Can’t imagine how their children will turn out being raised by this lot….Lies, Sex, Drugs, Booze is all their illiterate kids will know…..

  2. I hope hillary has fun doing her reading of the I.G. report and her up coming indictments.

  3. The longer they keep this up the more support there will be for President Trump…I’m loving every minute of it 🍿

  4. YES, just let the greedy, corrupt, slimy democrats keep it up. They are only hanging themselves. They don’t have sense enough to know what what they are doing to themselves. LOL !!!

  5. Wouldn’t it be nice to see both clintons, obama, loretta lynch, holder, clapper, maxine waters, and many more in prison, all in one room with one toilet?

  6. It’s amazing to me that more people don’t acknowledge that the liberal single minded agenda is to make sure republicans don’t win the presidency again by refusing ANY compromise, and refusing to acknowledge ANY successes that this president has achieved. Instead they do all they can to try and draw attentions to anything away from those successes being brought to the fore of discussion. Like a magician’s expertise… misdirection!
    I certainly don’t agree with how President Trump handles himself in his childish responses to those he feels have offended him but I can’t deny how he has succeeded in so many areas of concern with the majority of our country.
    I have long believed that the two party system cannot continue with success. Throughout our presidential history we have seen that whichever party is in power, the other party MUST NOT allow their success otherwise they would have no chance to regain control at the next election. That’s why my belief that a third party might be a better solution, but I don’t see that changing in my lifetime.
