Most Americans are not happy living under the Trump administration. That not fake news, it’s a fact, consistently verified by a great many polling organizations and the tremendous number of people actively resisting the new president’s agenda.
For that large part of our population, the negativity gushing daily from the White House can seem overwhelming and with no end in sight. But there is a partial remedy for this mass condition, other than impeaching Donald Trump, and that is – laughter. Yes, laughter. Indeed, seeing humor in these highly toxic situations can be the best medicine and the use of humor has the potential to be a most powerful political tool as well.
So, let the rest of this article be your outlet for at least somewhat relieving any political anxieties you might have acquired since the 2016 election.
What follows is a sample listing of TV comedy shows and links under those titles to some truly funny political satire. They are all short, most 5 minutes or less. You can browse by show title, comedian name, date or even length of time for each clip. And when you get done, pass some of those links, or even the link for this entire article, on to others. In that way, you will help spread fun and relief as well as using that humor to effectively change the political climate in this county. Enjoy!
