Late Night Elections

aaaHumorosnessRestOfNewsletterWhatever else the election has been, it’s been fodder for late night comedy, and uniformly it’s been anti-Trump. They, like so much of the country had been looking forward with ambivalence to a Clinton presidency but convinced they’d dodged the bullet of a Trump presidency. Until… oops. Now, like so much of the rest of the country, Humorousness can’t look away from the election results but at least we’ll show you the funny side of it, as we watch all the late night voices respond to the Trump victory, and try to flavor the crow they’re eating with a few laughs.
