Conservative Comedian Mocks Dems’ Appearances On Late-Night TV: ‘It’s a Giant Safe Space’

I’ve completely lost count of Democrats who’ve jumped on the presidential boat heading for 2020.

Conservative comedian Michael Loftus appeared on Fox & Friends to discuss Sen. Gillibrand, who just announced on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert that she has formed an exploratory committee for the 2020 presidential election.

Comedian and sitcom writer Michael Loftus said that high-profile Democrats appear on late-night television shows to make campaign announcements because they know they will be asked “softball” questions.

His opinion comes after Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) announced Tuesday on “The Late Show” that she has formed an exploratory committee for a 2020 presidential run.

Gillibrand is the latest Democratic politician to discuss their 2020 plans on Stephen Colbert’s talk show, joining Sens. Kamala Harris (Calif.) and Bernie Sanders (Vt.) and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro.

“Look at the way [Colbert] fawns all over these guys,” Loftus said Wednesday on Fox & Friends. “If you fail on Colbert, get out of the race. … I don’t trust you to negotiate with anybody if you can’t do good on that show.”

Castro announced his campaign for president last weekend, while Sanders and Harris have yet to announce their plans for 2020.

Loftus predicted that many other Democrats will announce their bids for the White House on late-night TV.

“The entire late-night arena … it’s all just the advertising arm of the Democratic Party. It’s a big, giant safe space for them,” he said. More

The conservative comedian slammed her and other Democratic politicians who make political announcements on late night talk shows, saying that they choose to visit these shows because they’ll only get asked “softball” questions. He went on to slam late night TV as a whole, calling it nothing more than “a big, giant safe space” for Democrats.

These late night hosts get to pretend they are reporting important news, their audience gets to pretend they are watching the news, and the candidates get to pretend they are making news. 

We have an entire generation of young people who listen to these late night hosts, movie and TV stars, and singers like they have some market on human values. Somehow we have failed to teach faith, real values through example.
