Politics Becoming Popular Spectator Sport
TCC started down this road with a post yesterday, Funny Response to Trump Tweetstorm, that was a GIFF poking fun at White House press secretary Sean Spicer's response to President Trump's cell phone usage to tweet. Politics seems to be a uniting force, both pro and against Trump, on social media and in everyday conversations with Americans commenting, "Did you hear..." "How about..." "Can you believe...."
Stephen Colbert, host of CBS' "Late Night with Stephen Colbert", has moved from 2nd place to 1st since the inauguration of Trump. Other late-night hosts are also experiencing a boost in ratings as it appears Americans are using these vehicles as either proof of political views (confirmation or conspiracy) or just as a coping mechanism. Each day Trump seems provide new fodder for late-night television hosts to sink their teeth into.
