The saying goes "what's good for the goose is good for the gander".
So, the head of the FCC has declared that he's going to "scrutinize" a course joke told, by a comedian, during a late-night live broadcast where he normally tells rude jokes.
Rude jokes are not illegal, even on TV. We could find lots of examples of that.
Take for instance, the time the sitting president confessed to sexually harassing women. Not a joke, not during late-night TV but rather on the news, and heard by my children. Nothing bad happened to him. In fact, he got elected President (even if it was only an electoral college win and not the popular vote).
Might just be me here, but this looks decidedly like Trump didn't like the comment, and asked the FCC to "send a message" to comedians.
By the by, this authoritarian approach to government is exactly why Trump is unfit to be President.
For the record, I'd donate to Colbert's defence fund as I happen to agree with him, in full, on his comments the other day.
I'd also donate to any effort to get Trump to pay for his comments, crimes, and misdeeds. Oh, and while we're at it, where are his tax returns?
