Trump Wants “Equal Time” From Late Night Comics

From the Hollywood Reporter:

President Donald Trump is pushing back against late night television show hosts who have been sharply critical of Republicans. The president took to Twitter Saturday morning to argue that Republicans should be given “equal time” because of the “one-sided” coverage, an apparent reference to Federal Communications Commission rules dealing with candidates during elections.

    • MarkOH

      You know, I am ALL for this. Bring back the Fairness doctrine which would require Hannity and his ilk to have to represent the opposing side.

  • That only works for news broadcasts. These are comedy shows, and not subject to those rules. Of course, since 45’s entire administration has been an ugly, tragic comedy of errors, he may have something on those lines.

  • JohnJay

    Trump… you and you administration get your “equal time” whenever you open your trap, are covered on the news, have a press conference, etc. Just because you squander that time… not with explaining clearly your policies and what your words actually mean… but with trite jokes, taunts, and mysterious threats… means you don’t get equal time for what you should have made clear from the start.

  • another_steve

    If you were to write a textbook for politicians on how to dig yourself a big big hole that you’ll never emerge from, Step One would be ‘alienate career civil servants,’ Step Two would be ‘attack the press,’ and Step Three would be ‘attack TV idols.’

    Unbelievable.

    Just unbelievable.

      I would just add, attack the FBI, CIA and NSA. Not only do those agencies know Where the bodies are buried, they also know how to make people disappear. Smart people do not pick fights with them.

        I guess he just doing his part to help save “the terrible ratings” that everyone except him seems to get.

  • bobbyjoe

    Okay, sure thing: strictly equal time for Republican spokespeople and Democratic spokespeople. Let’s start with Fox News.

  • netxtown

    Oh donnie. If you want equal time, you need to get your own show. I hear ‘the asshole’s apprentice’ is gearing up for a new season….

    Still stuck in the 1970’s, “Equal time” LOL call Ronnie.

    Um, after the mass murder in Las Vegas, networks couldn’t even get a sound byte from rethuglicans. Fuck you.

  • Blake J Butler

    1. there are no late night republican comics, they just are not funny and non-existent.

    2. They mostly lean democrat, but they always have had the presidents as comedic material since ever. ALL OF THEM.

    3. He’s such a ripe opportunity for comedic material because he is a black sheep and was born to fuck up in life consistently, and cannot respond accordingly and genuinely to crises at home and abroad.

    4. Tough fucking tits get over it.

  • Taylor

    If there is a Republican comic out there that can get the audience, then by all means let them have a shot at it. I’d love to see what passes for humor with that demographic.

    I don’t think Clint Eastwood talking to a chair will hold an audience!

  • Tomcat

    Get your equal time in Russia trump.

  • vorpal 😼

    Trump’s idea of humour is mocking disabled reporters and telling Puerto Ricans that they ruined his budget.

    When does the funny start? It’s getting hard enough just to laugh at him.

    Then re-establish the Fairness Doctrine. (And a perfect response, there, from Meyers.)

    • Gustav2

      Then Fox News would have to shut down.

      • Gerry Fisher

        Oh…I didn’t realize that…that would be too bad. [blinks his eyes faux innocently]

        • FAEN

          😏 what a tragedy that would be.

    • Tomcat

      That is a slippery slop we don’t want to go back to.

      • Gerry Fisher

        Dramatic. Care to elaborate? (And if going back to the fairness doctrine is seriously problematic, then figure out the ’17 equivalent that takes into consideration modern media. If there’s a will, there’s a way. There’s just no will to tame the wild west of media right now.)

  • Tomcat

    He reminds me of that guy in Vegas that went nuts and shot all those people.
    And that is NOT funny.

    • BJORN RAGNVALDR

      The shooter did not give such obvious, repeated messages of his intentions to the world, this Fucktard is bleating his hatred day in and day out for everyone to see…and some will be so surprised he followed through on everything he’s threatened..fucking idiots. He needs stopped, now.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    #MAGA?
    Moron Ain’t Gone Already??
    Come on Mueller, get the job done!!

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      #MAGA!
      Mueller Ain’t Going Away,
      until the job is done.

    • FAEN

      LOL @ your MAGA! Equally funny and true-Morons Are Governing America.

    • BJORN RAGNVALDR

      When Mueller finally puts an ironclad case together they’ll get all the fucking coverage we’ve been waiting for. Just hold tight, Lord Dampnut.

      • Silver Badger

        No need to be nasty. Many of us are wondering if Mueller is just a distraction. If Mueller doesn’t get his ass in gear, trump is going to get us all killed.

    • Jmdintpa

      Mueller isnt going to do a thing… if you havent figured that out yet then ……..

      • Dreaming Vertebrate

        We’ll see.

        • John30013

          I am somewhat concerned that the indictments will hit those around Hair Furor but that he will escape indictment.

    • Christopher

      Morons Are Governing America

    • JCF
  • IAMBOWLINGGREEN

    Calculated distraction.

  • Ken M

    Sarah on Colbert? I’d watch that. 😉

  • Dutchlander

    Distraction tweets people. Stay focused. Birth control. CHIP. LGBT. Russia.

    • bzrd

      exactly, the Resident Nazi went fishing last night and caught red herrings

      • Robincho

        Melanoma went fishing with her hunky secret service guy and came home with a red snapper…

  • FAEN

    This won’t get us to forget the Russia investigation.

  • Tomcat

    Trump THINKS he has the toughest job in America.
    He is wrong, that title goes to Mueller.

  • Tomcat

    Trump just cannot stand it that he cannot CONTROL ALL the media.
    I hope it drives him over the edge.

  • olandp

    Equal time sounds good to me. Hey, why not make it a law and call it The Fairness Doctrine!

  • bambinoitaliano

    He’s got Putin and his hackers creating Russia bots on all social media platforms of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and voting machines across the nation to start. Lard knows what other US departments that are infiltrated and he is whining about late night talk shows?

  • Piernudo15

    Today’s Washington Post has a column by a former advisor to President Clinton that says Trump is on track to win re-election. Now I’m depressed and my weekend is ruined 🙁
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/trump-is-on-track-to-win-reelection/2017/10/06/91cd2af0-aa15-11e7-850e-2bdd1236be5d_story.html?utm_term=.361b87fd4a54&wpisrc=nl_az_most&wpmk=1

    • FAEN

      Jeebus WTF! I refuse to believe that until it happens. And it better not.

    • JackNasty

      Consider the source.

    • Treant

      There’s no honest universe where 32% approval is a winning hand.

      Note the use of “honest.” If Russia is in control of the voting machines, it’s not honest…

      • Ross

        IF???????????????????

      • andrew

        Maybe a return to those mechanical voting machines is in order. I don’t think the Czar Putin people can rig them.

        • Treant

          Just change the Excel spreadsheets that the data is stored in…

          I’d be perfectly happy with the computerized machines if they generated a double receipt like the grocery stores do. One for me, one for the official records. Which must be kept for at least 10 years.

        • Librarykid

          But in many cases, it was not the voting machines that were tampered with but the voter registration records with numbers thrown off by a digit, rendering people ineligible to vote.

    • Silver Badger

      Do you really think we will all be alive long enough for trump to have a reelection campaign?

    • Jmdintpa

      Ive been saying all along the same thing. Not only that but in the mid terms the Republicans win more seats in the House and Senate. Not because I am a troll but I deal in reality. The reality the most people in America are racist so called christians. Then the minority group voter turn out is down and will be down further thanks to no Obama on the ticket and gerrymandering. Then add in the turncoat gays who support Trump and they keep winning. Democrats are in disarray and here in Florida they always manage to run the worst candidates. So its going to get worse and worse before the door finally shuts and the sun sets on the Constitution of the United States. This is not going to end with an election or impeachment. If we are to take back this country you and I and everyone else that gives a damn will have to fight for it and violence will be needed. Fascist do not respect the rule of law and we are going to have to go to that level if you do not want them to completely destroy what we have built.

      • Chucktech

        I’m afraid I agree with you regarding 2018. I’m hoping that, at the very least, we tread water.

    • SoCalGal20

      He’s 71. He could drop dead tomorrow. Or he could drop nukes on Lil Kim, thus starting WWIII and ending life on earth as we know it. Or an earthquake could take out all of the East Coast including DC and the entire Trump WH. Or or or…

      We’ve got 3 years until the next election.

      • Robincho

        He could drop dead tomorrow. Better yet, he could drop dead today!…

        • Librarykid

          Pence is the poison behind 45’s insanely hateful policies. Don’t think 45’s death would improve things.

  • geoffalnutt

    Republicans don’t actually watch TV, just FOXNews.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      They don’t watch Fauxsnooze, they absorb it passively through their mucous membranes.

  • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson
  • Harveyrabbit

    I hear RT Television is starting a new late night comedy show. I’m sure they would be more than happy to have the Drumpf on regularly. It’s called

    “POOTIE & KADY LIVE!”

  • netxtown

    Undeniably, Donnie would get the most laughs. The best laughs. The biggest laughs. All the people in the world are laughing. Belly laughing. Hysterically laughing…to tears.

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      This little dino will only start laughing when the traitorous [email protected] is tased, handcuffed and perp-walked straight to federal prison.

      • netxtown

        The possible skits are endless!

    • olandp

      I know I laugh at him.

      • netxtown

        I usually do as well. Of course, the laugh seems to be always quickly followed by ‘fuck’, SMGDH, or other terms of not-so-endearment.

  • margaretpoa

    They tried a conservative answer to the Daily Show but it was horribly unfunny. Prat falls and people getting hurt is the only thing that make conservatives laugh.

    • Friday

      The free market has spoken repeatedly on this. Conservatives aren’t funny.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      If not for the poor and the disabled, they’d have nothing to laugh at.

  • Bad Tom

    Trump is ALWAYS concerned about “fairness” when it pertains to HIM.
    Anyone else can go to Hell.

    • margaretpoa

      Trump is being treated fairly. He’s being fairly listened to and then fairly mocked.

  • Menergy

    Oh hell no! No more exposure than now. Couldn’t take the contamination increase, myself…..

  • bambinoitaliano

    He forgotten you need to have an ounce of talent to appear on a late night talk show. You would think he would get a clue from a slew of incompetent fools he hired that either got fired or resigned are not make for good tv. Ask mooch and spicey who got skewered after making their appearance in a couple entertainment shows..

  • Slippy_World
  • Toot Sweet

    What a total disaster this fake president is. “Moron” is way too kind.

  • More and more people voices in my head are suggesting that Republicans (and me) should be given Equal Time on T.V. when you look at the one-sided coverage?

  • Christ. What a cancer.

  • Tomcat

    • Tomcat

      That was the day the media ran with the wrong thing.
      Should have pushed the Russia collusion angle instead.

    • DoctorDJ

      Yet 61,201,031 of my fellow citizens still wanted this miscreant as their president and commander-in-chief.

      Makes me despair of this once-great, now scared and ignorant, country.

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    You steal women’s BC, target LGBT to pander to fundajelicals, terrify and mock various minorities to the point KKK march in celebration, scold PR for crying for help on a devastated island, plan to increase taxes on the middle class and blow up the deficit for the rich to get richer, toy with NK, sell the US to Russia and you whine because your bottomless need for flattery can’t be filled. You need to be in an orange jumpsuit.

  • bambinoitaliano

    Go ahead. Give the Republicans equal time to appear on late night shows. I’m going to launch my own late night show and probably make a killing in advertising revenue going up against them by just running this. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/de698ad178ca84a98e7169792e7573f4a684b9e0fb259555182b5ba8ebbc0f4b.gif

  • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

    There is no such thing as conservative humor:

    They can’t self-deprecate. They don’t understand subtlety. They equate cruelty and bitter mocking with amusement. They have no grasp of the absurd without turning it into a threat. Racial slurs are hilarious.

    When was the last time you saw a bully as a successful comic? Andrew Dice Clay? Look how well that worked out for him.

  • Ross

    Trump Wants “Equal Time” From Late Night Comics

    TRUTH TRANSLATION:

    Hillary has been making the rounds of all the late night shows to wide acclaim, promoting her best-selling book.

    Donald is mad because it’s not ALL ABOUT HIM.

    • -M-

      Good point.

    • Todd20036

      It’s why he’s not complaining about Fox only giving free time to Nazis.

    • Librarykid

      What kind of a book has he written or could he write?

  • Friday

    Err, yeah, you Republicans did away with the Fairness Doctrine ages ago, that’s why you have Faux News propaganda networks that you could put comedy shows on all you want…. If cons could do comedy, which you can’t.

    Back when Stewart was on The Daily Show they were crying their eyes out about unfair it was that THEY couldn’t “have” their own version. They even tried to make their own version with hilarious conservative knee slappers that I think lasted about an episode.

  • DoctorDJ
  • Ben in Oakland

    Sure. Let’s restore the fairness doctrine, and put some teeth into it.

    Trump can compete for the 3:00 AM time-slot with Jim Bakker’s slop bucket infomercials.

  • JohnMyroro

    Sorry, snowflake. The equal time (or Fairness Doctrine, as it was called) was abolished by your hero Reagan.

  • pete

    you’re welcome on their shows anytime.

  • Faux News and entertainment is your channel. And everything they utter is laughable, so……

  • DumbHairyApe

    He didn’t seem to care much about any kind of balance when, during the campaign, it was all-Trump coverage.

    • andrew

      The Network and Cable news shows and their endless coverage of Trump are one of the main reasons why that disaster is POTUS.

  • narutomania

    The short answer is “no”. No, you should not get “equal time” from the networks in any form. You are a turd, and they may continue to talk about you and treat you like the turd that you are until (hopefully) someday soon you go away.

    • Robincho

      And the long answer is “nope”…

      • narutomania

        Ha ha! I am sooooo stealing that from you!

    why doesn’t fox start a late night show? can’t find anyone who’s funny and pro-trump?

  • Uncle Mark

    Oh…WAAAAAH, you oversized baby. Presidents & politicians are always made sport of by comedians…just as they often come under criticism by pundits and as well as the well-informed & idiots alike on Twitter. (A fact you should be all-too-familiar with, you fucking moron.)

    Your regime and your Presidency is already a sick & twisted joke. What Kellyanne considers “reality” is hysterical…as are the “press conferences” by an inbred, overstuffed Arkansas dullard wearing window curtains, while telling the press nothing beyond expressing her perpetual contempt for them…is literally a scream. (Trust me; I scream A LOT at that.). Perhaps you should pay some comedians to write something funnier for your Willy Wonka Blueberry Girl to spew beyond letters from poorly educated kids named “pickle.”

    • Librarykid

      Your description of the spokes sow is hilarious and spot on. You can tell that she learned the art of flat out lying with a flat emotionless face from her preacher, politician father.

  • Gil

    Frankly, I think someone should have a ” Republican Humor ” segment nightly, using a real fakey laugh track to polish things off…Colbert probably would be the best one….

    • Mike

      They tried that. It was a show on Fox called The 1/2 Hour News Hour. It was cancelled after a few weeks. The problem is that funny satire kicks up, not down, but right wingerism is all about the kicking down. A show with a bunch of Milos making fun of people with limps and foreign accents, and Benghazi am I right?, can never be funny.

      Sure, give that pig “equal time.” Ha! Make all the Sinclair stations run it. But they can’t make people watch, and they can’t make anyone laugh.

  • Jack

    How’s about a “Press Conference” with Trump and the late night hosts he’s referring to?

  • 2patricius2

    Sorry, Drumpfy Wumpfy. The comedians are just taking their equal time for your remarks.

  • Larry in Oklahoma

    All Trump has to do is to find some Conservative and some Republican comics. Oh, wait, there are no Conservative / Republican comics. Conservatives and Republicans are all talk radio critics.

    • infmom

      Dennis Miller stopped being a comedian the instant SNL’s writers stopped putting words in his mouth.

  • DN

    Only a fucking moron would describe late-night monologues as “coverage.”

  • teedofftaxpayer

    I guess in that case every time he has a press conference (which seems like every day) then the Democrats should be allowed to have one with the foreign dignitary he managed to confuse or upset that day.

    • Halou

      He is jealous that North Korean televisions have no off switch, so when the regime decides everybody needs to see and hear Dear Leader there is nothing anybody can do about it short of destroying the television.
      The TVs are all literally on 24/7 out there.

  • Marides48

    I thinks it’s called free speech.

  • He thinks Jimmy Kimmel is ‘coverage.’

    • Bj Lincoln

      I know. Right? If a person doesn’t have a clue what is going on day to day, most of the jokes would not be funny. The crowd has to be pretty well informed to understand. This is what scares the hell out of them. Democrats/liberal/left are generally better educated which fly in the face of the GOP who prefer their base be ignorant and angry.

  • BlindBill

    I thought fox was 24/7 of trump fellatio …..and fox’s fake favorable trump coverage it is so over the top that it is funny – what more does he want?

  • Dagoril

    No equal time for popular vote LOSERS like you, Donnie!

  • bcarter3

    Ooooh, I like the idea of equal time! Whenever the orange gasbag babbles his nonsense on TV, the networks should give equal time and coverage to responses from Seth Meyers and John Oliver and Samantha Bee.

  • NedFlaherty

    The FCC’s Equal Time rule says that Trump can get matching broadcast time, but he has to pay for it at the same rates as the Daily Show, President Show, Full Frontal, Last Week Tonight, etc. Networks owe Trump nothing unless and until he comes up with equivalent audiences as large as those who follow Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, etc.

    No chance.

    • Bj Lincoln

      Exactly!

  • Halou

    What is the definition of “entitlement”. You don’t get given free airtime simply for being associated with Dear Leader and his political opinions.
    If David and the Dukes want to control a comedy show they can work towards creating one of their own, and earn viewer interest like everyone else does. If they’re good they’ll succeed, if they suck they’ll get nothing. True capitalism, that is what the Republicans want, isn’t it. They can’t be that Russian, surely?

  • Megrim Twist
  • HappyDance904

    But, you….are on nation’s TV douchecanoe!! You prove day after day that you are unfit to button your own shirts!!!

  • Halou

    I preferred the Obama approach.
    The last real president was not afraid to dabble in a little bit of self-deprecation, appearing on the comedy shows themselves to do it. Trump on the other hand is so plain and humourless he wants to have political officers backstage writing the scripts for these things.

  • The_Wretched

    He wants the ‘fairness doctrine’ back? Last I checked, republicans hated it since it meant talk radio and Fox had to air actual liberals.

  • EdA

    The abolition of equal time was a Ronald rotten initiative that led directly to the metasthesis of bah humbug and right wing talk radio and the ability of Sinclair Broadcasting to poison the minds of Americans in nearly 200 communities. It allowed Benedict trump to benefit from tens of millions of dollars of free advertising. I would welcome the return of equal time.

    • William

      Gutting of the Fairness Doctrine also brought about the rise of Faux Nooz and allowed Rupert Murdoch to expand his media empire to the US.

  • Gianni

    Donnie, the bone-head, can’t grasp that ‘equal time’ would drastically cut his already total coverage. He’s literally on the airwaves 24/7. I’d really love to see Donnie appear on some of the shows and go head to head with the comedians. Figuratively, he’d be crucified with his own nonsense, lies, awful attitude, and general stupidity. I would pay to see that.

    • Halou

      Trump would never do anything even remotely like this:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95KTrtzOY-g

      • Gianni

        Obama has class that Donnie will never, in his wildest imaginings, ever have. He tries to convince people that he’s better than Obama, but any half-wit can discern how untrue that is. Yes, there are many less-than-half-wits out there. As I’ve said before: Donnie is no-class trash and he proves it every time he tweets and/or opens his big mouth.

    It is sad, he still thinks he is running for president.

    • AJayne

      @Stonekettle has a phrase for him and his followers: they’re poor winners. Setting new standards for idiocy every day…

    • sfbob

      Actually he IS running for President. He filed for the 2020 election immediately after his inauguration. He did that mostly because it gave him added opportunities for grifting. And because it gave him a whole new set of rules he could ignore with impunity. Theoretically it could also serve to make criticism of him a bit more complicated but I think the critics are a whole lot smarter than he is.

  • infmom

    Yeah, Donnie, get someone to find out who repealed the Fairness Doctrine.

  • Kissmagrits

    Ironic, isn’t it? The Republican icon and hero, St. Ronnie the Wise, is the
    primary reason “the fairness doctrine” bit the dust forty years ago. We haven’t
    been the same since.

  • Bert_Bauer

    How ironic that it was conservatives that did away with the Fairness Doctrine in 1987, which used to require that equal time be provided for opposing viewpoints. The death of the Fairness Doctrine is what allowed conservative hate radio to promulgate.

    You want equal time? Reenact the Fairness Doctrine you orange fart cloud you.

  • RJ Bone

    Equal Time doesn’t refer to satire, you huge, orange dipshit.

    Even if we reinstituted the Fairness Doctrine the results would be the same. Trump and the conservatives would still be assholes and the media would report it next to facts 😛

  • “Equal time for Republicans”? EXCUSE ME, but it was the Reagan Administration that succeeded in getting rid of the FCC’s old Fairness Doctrine, hence the proliferation all the Rush Limbaughs. If Trump wants equal time, maybe he should try reinstating the Fairness Doctrine.

    I think one of the comedians should take him up on this. Do 1 minute of comedy, then play 1 minute of Trump’s broken promises (First thing is repeal Obamacare, Health reform is easy, First priority is building a wall, endorsing Luther Strange, etc.). Do antoher minute of comedy, then another minute of Trump clips (Melania slapping away his hand, Melania nudging him to raise his hand during the National Anthem, him pushing the other leader out of the way at that Nato thing, etc.). Another minute of comedy, then a minute of all the gaffes from those who left the WH (Priebus, Bannon, etc.).

    Conservative entitlement: why are news programs biased against lies?

    The sad thing is, they aren’t even.

  • marshlc

    Wait, I thought MOST of the time on comedy shows is devoted to Trump, these days….

  • rednekokie

    Oh — so now he wants his own “fake news” show — well, he’d probably be better at that than he’s been as “president”. At least there, he’d be able to grab p***y — which he can’t too well in the WH without stirring up the troups even more.

    Wouldn’t constantly slamming drumpf be coverage of drumpf and the conservatives? Perhaps they should spend equal time discussing what dems actually stand for.

  • mark99k

    Erm, wasn’t it the Repubs who got rid of the equal time rule a while back? Donnie is again just showing what an attention-starved pussy he is.

    • Todd20036

      Yup. St. Ronnie did the honors, and Fox “news” was born.

  • RoverSerton

    Rush Limbaugh exists because the “fairness doctine” was thrown out idiot! If you get it, so do we….(crickets)

  • boatboy_srq

    If Lord Dampnut’s misperception leads to reintroduction of the Fairness Doctrine, shouldn’t we encourage it in this case?

  • KnownDonorDad

    Remember the disaster that was The 1/2 Hour News Hour?

    Obviously he really just wants ‘equal time’ to equal having his lies unexposed.

  • Raising_Rlyeh

    Reagan killed the fairness doctrine, fucker. They don’t owe you shit.

  • Tom Chicago

    I guess having his own network, the right-wing press and the supermarket rags all kissing his ass isn’t enough. Maybe what he really means is the degree of loathing the MSM has for him is beginning to chafe.

  • JCF

    He no get First Amendment, do he?

    Hey everyone, remember:

    “@Barack Obama

    More and more people are suggesting that [Democrats] (and me) should be given
    Equal Time on [FOX] when you look at the one-sided coverage?”

    Me neither!

  • Hryflex

    Too bad there’s no Fairness Doctrine. Who axed that?

  • Dean Cameron

    While it would be very funny to see Trump matching his Lumpen wit against the brilliance of Seth Myers, Stephen Colbert and Stephen Fry, shouldn’t he be attending to his Presidenting or something?
