Donald Trump went on conservative “comedian” Greg Gutfeld’s Fox News show this week and the interview managed to be humiliating for everyone involved. Throughout the interview there was an annoying laugh track playing in the background which was simply awkward because neither one of these guys were telling jokes. Gutfeld said that he used to be critical of Trump but has over time come around to him. The Fox host said, “now we’re at a time where — okay there are no mean tweets and we have a really nice president — and the country is in the crapper. So who would you rather have?” In truth, Gutfeld like so many other right-wing personalities have been forced to come around to Trump to keep their careers, as there is no room for dissent in the American right anymore surrounding who the dear leader is. Gutfeld later asked Trump how hard it is to be president. Trump responded by saying it was easy to “run the country, work on the world and do things.” But he said it was much harder to deal with constant pressure by the media and that “the survival was much tougher.” After the interview aired, one of Gutfeld’s panelists commended the host because he “didn’t kiss [Trump’s] ass.” If the constant fawning and constant laugh track usage to make the ex-president look funny wasn’t “ass kissing,” it’s hard to tell what is.
