“Congressional districts are like body parts. When they turn blue, you know something is terribly wrong.”
Jordan Klepper, Host of “The Opposition” on Comedy Central
Jordan Klepper is an American comedian, producer, actor, and television host. He is best known for being an on-air correspondent on “The Daily Show” and, more recently, as the host the satirical Comedy Central program “The Opposition with Jordan Klepper.” He’s actually a very funny guy and it’s a very funny show.
The show is intended to satirize the alt-right media such as InfoWars, Breitbart, Rush Limbaugh, and even Fox News. Klepper portrays an over-the-top Alex Jones type of character in much the same way as Stephen Colbert depicted a conservative pundit on “The Colbert Report” before he left Comedy Central to take over from David Letterman on “The Late Show” on CBS in September 2015.
The quote at the top of this post is obviously a tongue-in-cheek, comedic statement mocking the fears of conservative Republicans that there will be a “blue wave” at the upcoming midterm elections in November.
Go big blue!
