Laura Ingraham does not have a sense of humor and is angry at Kate McKinnon

Conservatives are stupid people who lack a sense of humor. Laura Ingram is a very stupid person whose feelings were hurt last weekend when Kate McKinnon did a great job on SNL.

1. They say the best comedy is rooted in reality.

2. Because punching up is better comedy than punching down, in general, cons cannot admit

they deserve to be the butt of jokes because that would give away the game...

5. The only thing she should be angry about

Is that the skit wasn't that funny.

21. Ahhh. Close. A blood obsession with women.

He accused her of having dried blood in her hair from a bad facelift surgery at a New Year's Eve party.

12. In response to the Tweet. No, it isn't weird at all.

One major reason that Conservatives tend to be less funny than Liberals is that they lack one crucial trait that is (at least in my opinion) necessary for comedy. The ability to laugh at oneself.

A lot of comedy is built upon ideas of the absurd. Laughing at things that WE do as humans, but in a self referential way. I was walking up the stairs in my house and I tripped and fell. It was going up so I just went in and caught myself. I was not hurt at all. I started laughing because I was able to envision how funny I must have looked as I fell. Just an absurdity in life. We laugh at mundane comedy like Jerry Seinfeld's observational humor about, riding the subway...

Conservatives in general, but the more right wing you are, the more intense it is, have an aversion to laughing at themselves. Laughing at yourself implies a vulnerability. As I said, I laughed because I imagined I looked goofy trying to regain my balance and stop the fall. Had I done it in front of others, I may have been embarrassed. It was definitely not a "cool and controlled" look.

Liberals laugh at everything, including themselves. Conservatives tend to only laugh at people they perceive as weak or flawed. It is an almost cruel humor. This is why people like Greg Gutfeld are not funny and people like Dennis Miller, who used to be moderately amusing, are now so bad. I was watching Jim Bruer, who is a physical comedian like Jim Carey, who was big in the 90's and on SNL too. He is now a right winger and was doing a comedy set talking about vaccines and Fauci. While I wasn't too into him even back in the day, his recent set was cringe worthy in how bad it was. He walked around like a "cockatoo" repeating "Listen to Fauci" and "Gotta get boosted". I don't know why he had to go with Cockatoo, since while some can mimic speech, that is not what they are known for. He could have just said Parrot because everyone can relate to "Polly wanna cracker", anyway, it was just not funny at all. Likely because it was informed by defensiveness and attacking people who accept science and expertise when taking in their health information. The "absurdity" actually lies on HIS side, anti-vaccine people who accept SOME science, but reject that which clashes with their political or emotionally held ideas. Not good for comedy.

Also, the difference between a George Lopez talking about Chicanos and Mexican-Americans, and a white comedian doing the same, Or like Chris Rock or Cedric the Entertainer talking about "Black folk" and someone like Stephen Crowder doing it. The former comedians are talking about experience within a group THEY belong to, while the latter is talking about groups with which the only experience they may have is through stereotypes. The former are relatable and the latter are exploitative.

Long story short, there are many reasons Conservatives are just not funny. A big one in my opinion, is they cannot laugh at themselves.

Both require brain cells.

18. Ingraham was on the Fox failed attempt to copy the Daily Show called the Half-Hour News Hour

That show was terrible and was cancelled in four months


The Half Hour News Hour was really bad

WAaat?

If "Hogan's Heroes" taught me anything, it's that Nazis are a bunch of fun-loving goofballs.

22. WATCH: Fox News host bizarrely lashes out at SNL by imitating Kate McKinnon's impression of her

This is so sad that it is funny



Fox News host Laura Ingraham had a go at Kate McKinnon of "Saturday Night Live" fame on Monday, bizarrely breaking out her own impression of McKinnon imitating her.


Ingraham's foray into self-referential humor came in response to McKinnon's SNL cold open this past Saturday, in which the comedian played a comical version of Ingraham railing against Biden and the left.

"Inflation's out of control, gas is at $19 a gallon," McKinnon said, imitating the host. "And the green M&M has been canceled just for being a whore. Things are so bad in Biden's America, even according to former Wendy's spokes-girl Jen Psaki."
