Someone needs to tell the folks at the Comedy Central cable television channel that in order to have the word “Comedy” in your name, you should actually be funny.
A perfect example of this aired on Thursday evening, April 27, when the low-rated channel debuted The President Show, which mostly consists of President Donald Trump impersonator Anthony Atamanuik sitting in the big chair in the Oval Office and Peter Grosz as Vice President Mike Pence seated on a couch nearby.
According to the program’s website:
The losers dominating late night are in for a rude awakening when the smartest, handsomest, most winning-est president of all time enters the fray to address the nation.
The President Show brings television back to the people — by putting a plutocratic billionaire behind the desk.
One segment began with “Trump” complimenting “Pence” for being “a nice guy.”
“Thank you, Sir. Thank you very much,” Grosz responded.
“But not everyone is as nice as you,” the Trump lookalike continued. “I think it’s important to let the audience know who’s being nice and who’s being not nice in our very first desk piece called ‘Nice! Not Nice!'”
