    As white guy from Europe, I don't get some things. 1. Almost all killings of unarmed black people was happened in urban area where DNC are decades in power in governments. 2. Trump before pandemic create conditions for record number of POC to get jobs. On other side, DNC give you welfare money just to keep you alive but poor and angry so you can vote for them. So why you vote for DNC?

    Comedy is dying thanks to activists pretending to be comedians. Trump was low hanging fruit that didn't require much effort or creativity. It's funny this wasn't a topic during the 8 years of Obama. Stop whining and start writing some fresh material please. SJW's are killing comedy

    Don't care much for Trump but i think most keep bringing him up cause its an easy topic and don't have to be creative and figure out new subjects to talk about. Its Why you'll see some comedians and late night talk shows plummeting within the next few months

      not really this is just a more slowed down honed version of comedy, it's still a performance, and she said some really important things about comedy. Also, Its Black History Month so that's probably why they're doing all this political stuff rn.

    Great video. Comedy was one of the many things that helped me get through that hellish era. It was so nice to turn that outrage into laughter. And for the people claiming this is propaganda: Comedy has always and will always be political. Comedians are people and their views will come out in their stand up.

      @Neural Tech yeah, the GDP didn’t really change. It continued at the basic rate of growth as when previous presidents were in control. He didn’t do anything to really impact GDP. But, he sure did destroy our deficit with tax cuts for people who don’t need it. Under Obama the deficit was decreasing. Trump came in and it rose from 400 to 600 to 650 then 780 (double the deficit when he took office already) then 980. Last year it was over 1080. Nearly three times the deficit we had when he took office. It wouldn’t be fair to attribute all of the deficit growth during a global pandemic to his incompetence. But, it’s very clear that he screwed up the response and 450,000 American have died and we have spent more money on half measures that are barely working than we needed to really spend. Yfpos

    What does political satire have to do with dark humor? This title doesn’t make sense. One of the first references is to Seth Meyers who famously doesn’t really do dark humor.

      @Thot_Juice _Papi but, it’s so dumb to use a term that already has meaning. Dark comedy is already a thing within the world of comedy. If you look at the kings of comedy tours and Apollo performances other things that are predominantly performed and viewed by African Americans the term dark humor isn’t used, because dark humor already refers to comedy about dead baby jokes and whatnot. It’s a major genre of comedy. Like insult humor or observational humor. If a bunch of music artists in Atlanta tried to use THOT to mean some whole other kind of thing .... that would be needlessly complicated. And it would be dumb. This was a bad idea. It’s like the Netflix AMget channel where they use thumbnails and titles to give away the punch line to a joke. It’s a mistake from someone who just doesn’t understand comedy.

      @Thot_Juice _Papi but it’s so dumb to take an existing industry term, and use the same term for something totally different. That’s really, really dumb. And to consider this dark humor because African Americans have said it but without including any other group also seems short sighted.

    This was in my recommended youtube algorithm. I like comedy and this channel but this isn't comedy so much, kinda bleh. How long will Trump be the scapegoat? At some point you'll have to find a new boogeyman until you realize it's your current masters and you, you're the one who empowers those in actual power and do their bidding, you're the one who empowers the blind rage of the masses. Why focus on white supremacy and not all racism instead? I see people more openly have stereotypes and prejudice and be racist towards white people more than all other races. I'm brazilian american (not white) and I hate the liberals of today. White liberals are often just as racist but it comes from a place of pity or condescension, but the truth is everyone is racist and humans are notorious for this because it's a lower function and base human and animal behavior. Most humans fall into this category of action instead of the higher, better choice. Humans stereotype. Its innate animal heuristic, a behavior that helped us evolve and survive. People like patterns so we try to simplify a complex world with prejudice from our stereotypes and then this leads beliefs and attitudes like racism and many other forms of ignorance. The video wasn't bad but I'm just confused, it feels like people are still being victims to what the media did to the people by barraging them with such strong conformity, groupthink and mob mentality that trump is bad, racist, xenophobic, misogynist, a tyrant and the anti christ, all lies or debatable and no actual reasonable discourse able to be made. Common sense lost. Civility discarded. People are afraid to critically think for themselves and be ostracized as outsiders of "wrong think". This has nothing to do with Trump, it has to do with the people voting for someone outside of the elite establishment oligarchy of America and threatening the elites and their position, power and influence in the world and they are terrified. Look at what's happening now with GME and wall street. The government establishment (democrats and republicans) and Hedge Fund elites are outraged ordinary people beat the Hedge Funds at their own game in the free market. All rich people aren't bad but all the people who are negatively directing and influencing the world are wealthy elites, way more powerful than just one government politician. One day I pray you realize the only way to see society clearly is disconnect from it, then come back and tell others what you see if they desire to know.

      You took the words right out of my mouth. As a self described true liberal, these false liberals insult everything I stand for and the lack of a true dialogue leaves one to automatically label me a trump supporter of all things because I don’t support this fake woke parade. They are the MOST prejudice people, and ironically are the problem they supposedly are fighting against. Well spoken from you, I agree with everything said.
