Former Tonight Show host Jay Leno called out the current late night TV hosts on their constant attacking of President Trump in a way to say it’s getting old.
Eventually, viewers will get tired of it and turn away, and it will be in mass. Leno stated there’s only but so much you can make jokes about before it gets stale and unwatchable.
Most of your late night TV hosts think Trump jokes are going to be forever, but the don’t realize what has been happening to the mainstream media. They are a shell of themselves. They chose to attack, attack, and attack Trump and now most of the network news channel ratings are falling, probably never to return to the glory years.
This is because the executives didn’t want to learn their lessons and are reaping what they have sowed.
Leno doesn’t like Trump but the bad blood being spewed is creating an unhealthy environment, and someone needs to create the pause.

Late-night TV veteran Jay Leno says he doesn’t like President Trump personally but thinks the “constant negative Trump stuff” on a nightly basis is getting a little trite.

The former “Tonight Show” host told Page Six that he enjoys “bringing people together” rather than dividing them politically.
“If [mocking the president] is a constant thing on a nightly basis, eventually you’re all doing the same joke,” he said.
Mr. Leno made similar comments earlier this week to The Hollywood Reporter, saying, “I don’t like Trump, I can’t stand the guy, I don’t like him personally. But the constant negative Trump stuff on a nightly basis? I think it has a debilitating effect on people. People are just, ‘Oh, gosh, I don’t wanna watch TV anymore. This is just the same thing every night.’”
In May, he told The New York Times that “this constant pounding” against the president “does have a tendency to anesthetize your feelings.”
“There’s only so many bits you can do” about the president, he told The Times. “I don’t want to be bullied into not being me, and not doing what I think is funny.”
The comments come as liberal late-night hosts Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee and Bill Maher, who routinely take aim at Mr. Trump, enjoy significant ratings boosts under the new president. Mr. Fallon, however, has seen his viewership decline.
There’s nothing wrong with what Leno is saying here. Actually, I am glad he is talking about it because it’s not helping the country and these so-called entertainers are screwing with American lives with these jokes and innuendos about the Commander-in-chief.
