NEW YORK (AP) — There’s one area where Donald Trump is guaranteed to beat Hillary Clinton this fall: He’ll be the butt of the most jokes by late-night comics.
That would be true even if Trump didn’t present such a unique target. In every election year since 1992, the Republican candidate was mocked more by comedians than the Democrat, according to a think tank that tallies punch lines.
Republicans maintained that status even though Bill Clinton was the most joked-about politician during the past 24 years, said Robert Lichter, director of the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University.
The center’s count didn’t surprise Comedy Central’s Trevor Noah, one of four late-night comics included in the study. The others are Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert.
