Welcome to Amy Schumer's "I'm with her" comedy tour

Amy obviously got the memo.

When you've got the right management team and the right publicists and the right promo machinery in place, you're gonna get the memo. Not only that, but you're going to get gigs.

That memo led Amy to conclude that a joke, if it can be called that, about Trump wanting to finger his daughter, would be a great laffer at her Tampa show the other day.

Didn't quite turn out that way.

There's gonna be poly-sci and journalism students writing dissertations for the next fifty years about how the "news business" uniformly took an anti-Trump pro-Clinton tack in this election, a reality that nobody can deny.

Any regular reader of this blog knows what I think about Trump. Two years ago I had him taking the number two slot in a possible Jindal White House run. Come to think of it, that may well have been a viable team. Just imagine an East Indian guy and a Manhattan liberal on the GOP ticket! That would have been a slam dunk!


At least not on the GOP ticket.

Anyway, it didn't happen. But this concerted media evisceration of the GOP candidate is completely unprecedented.

On my evening CBC newscast today I got oodles of info on the latest Trump controversy, which at this particular moment seems to be about his claiming the elections are rigged.

Ask Al Gore about that one.

But there's nary a word about those thousands of Podesta emails that have been dumped in the public square, which, if nothing else, demonstrate that the team around Hillary is more than happy to game the system.

Amy and her ilk need to take a cold hard look at who they're campaigning for.

When they come to their senses they'll realize Jill Stein wasn't such a bad idea after all.
