The Left just hates that Donald Trump has used social media more effectively than they have... and they'll do anything they can to make fun of that. Recently, Perez Hilton pointed out that Comedy Central is opening a new "Presidential Library" in honor of the President they love to hate. The press release reads:
Every president since Franklin D. Roosevelt has been honored with a meticulously curated memorial library commemorating the documents of historical value crafted during his time as leader of the free world. Continuing this hallowed tradition, and seeing no need to wait for him to leave office, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will honor our current president with The Daily Show Presents: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library, the first of its kind, showcasing our Commander in Chief’s preferred vessel for communicating with the public, his Twitter feed. This actual library will be located in New York City and will be free and open to the public.
The Daily Show Presents: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library will open in June, and it will be tremendous. It will be so tremendous that you’ll get tired of the tremendousness, so it will then close only a few days later. Sad!
It goes on to explain that this library will be "fully interactive" and will have many hands-on experiences (it clarifies, "for hands of all sizes," natch). This, Comedy Central, promises a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to memorialize and celebrate the many 'unpresidented' moments of President Trump’s Twitter history." Yes, that is a reference to this unfortunate typo:
The press release says that detail will come later, but it's hard to imagine a more boring "library" since it will only contain material that's readily available in Trump's much discussed Twitter feed.
Forbes reported on just how terrible the The Daily Show ratings have been since Noah's 100th episode:
According to Nielsen, the Comedy Central show's viewership has declined by 37% since Jon Stewart left The Daily Show. Noah reached his highest rating with his first episode, which is very telling. The September 28th episode scored a 0.41 rating in the key 18-49 demographic and just over 1 million viewers. For the same week the previous year, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart garnered a 0.65 and 1.5 million viewers. People tuned in to compare Noah to his formidable predecessor and after that initial excitement, The Daily Show lost a considerable number of viewers.
In other words, it's quite possible that this "Presidential Library" is just Noah's latest attempt to get someone -- anyone! -- to watch his show.
