Five Lines or Less — Late Night Comedy in the Trump Era

Colbert jokes about TrumpI used to enjoy watching the late night comics on TV making fun of and joking about Donald Trump.

They provided much needed comic relief from the clusterfuck that is Trump’s reign.

But I’ve reached the point where I just don’t find it funny anymore.

The damage Trump and his GOP cronies have done to our nation may be beyond repair.

Leaving me wishing and hoping that this nightmare will end and I can start enjoying the late night comics once again.


5 linesThis is written for the Friday Five Lines or Less prompt from Patricia’s Place. The idea is to write a story or poem of five lines or less. This week’s word is “wishing.”

    Agreed. If I never hear or see a Trump again I’d be happy.

    Sad when even comics can’t make the state of things seem a bit humorous.😾 Thank you for sharing your lines.

    It is the same stupid things he is doing so you can only hear the same jokes so often before they have no affect. Too sad and scary to laugh at any more!
