Conan O’Brien Calls Trump America’s Greatest Joke

Liberal comedian Conan O’Brien decided that it would be a good idea to slam his own country. He went on CNN saying that the biggest problem he is facing during the Trump Presidency is “to find a joke that’s more absurd than what’s actually happening.”

O’Brien claimed, “Comedians usually in a normal era are supposed to take these serious situations and find the comedy in them and stretch them a little bit. In the Trump era we’re essentially dealing with—I mean, every day there is such a mother lode of, I don’t know how else to say it, surreal news, that it can be very hard to find a joke that’s more absurd than what’s actually happening.”

“It’s really hard to take what’s happening right now and make it somehow more absurd than it really is. So it’s a challenge for comics. People think it’s easy, but it’s actually a little more difficult I think right now.”
