                      Just watch. When Trump leaves office and is actually indicted for all the bullshit he's managed to cover up every single conservative will change their tune, "We never felt that comfortable with him". It may take several years, but it will happen. Same thing happened with W.

                                            Remember when Trump ran hundreds of guns to Mexican drug cartels? Or that time he hopped on a plane to Vegas for a fundraiser while one of our ambassadors was lying dead in a foreign embassy? Or that time he weaponized the IRS to target his political enemies? Or that time he shipped a whole planeload of cash to Iran for whatever reason? Or that time he... oooops... wait a sec. Nevermind.

                                                        In this era of some journalists being labeled harbingers of fake news, it may be hard for some youngsters today who are consumers of news and information, to know that journalist once occupied the highest rung of respectability and integrity, so much so, that if a despicable criminal wanted to give up to law enforcement, would want to be escorted to police headquarters accompanied by journalist as confirmation that their body showed no displays or outward signs of physical abuse. Now, just imagine a request for accompaniment by a harden criminal element, showing up with a modern day journalist for safety, who is hair dyed, or worse dressed in synthetic hair, making the whole affair a mockery bathed in exasperated annoyance inciting the phrase, “awe, come on now…you’ve got to be kidding me”…all the while engaging in uncontrollable laughter…as if currently viewing the anchors of a cable newscast…or a Saturday Night Live skit…you see the brand has been so tarnished, is currently beyond repair in the name of self-promotion and corporate network marketing…”and the same thing goes for Christmas”…

                                                                                    • Cars and Cameras

Yes it's way obvious Dems are treated with much more respect on SNL & sadly it's at the cost of the jokes.
