In the liberal entertainment industry, defending Donald Trump in any way can risk your career.
That’s why it was a refreshing surprise this week when legendary late night host Jay Leno did just that.
According to Daily Info24, though Leno has made it clear he is not a fan of Trump, he also has a problem with the bands of late night hosts who make their living attacking him on a regular basis.
This week, Leno promised that if were still hosting the “Tonight show” he would not be taking things to the extreme the way these hosts do.
“I enjoy bringing people together. If [mocking the president] is a constant thing on a nightly basis, eventually you’re all doing the same joke,” Leno told Page Six.
Leno has since been blackballed by the liberal elite according to American News.
This weekend, Leno will be performing in the Hamptons, where he said he may take a few shots at the president.
But he’s committed to making the bulk of his show about other topics.
If Jay Leno was still on late night TV, he said he would steer clear of Trump jokes.
The retired “Tonight Show” host told Page Six that he thinks the current lineup of late night hosts anti-Trump jokes are growing stale.
What do you think? Do you agree with Leno that these late night hosts have taken things way too far?
