Intelligence Squared U.S.
Is Trump Bad for Comedy?

From the opening skit on Saturday Night Live to the pages of The Onion, President Trump has become the face of comedy. According to his critics, he has normalized the absurd and effectively de-fanged political satire. But others disagree; they argue that the president serves up comedy-gold every day, making their jobs – and the laughs they seek to elicit – easier than ever before. Is the president killing comedy? Or is he making the funny business ever more relevant? The debaters are P.J. O'Rourke, Kurt Andersen, Sara Schaefer, and Billy Kimball.
