I never, ever thought that I would write the words “brilliant comedy sketch” in connection with anything from Comedy Central, let alone Larry Wilmore’s The Nightly Show, but this is good. It’s really good.
You’re going to have to put up with the first almost-two-minutes of Wilmore talking, because that’s the set-up for the sketch and Wilmore, I’m sorry to say, is nothing to writ home about. However, when the sketch begins, you’ll appreciate that the institutional Left is finally becoming genuinely frightened of the monsters it’s created and is trying to put them back in their cages. The result is a very sharp set-down of the cry-bully phenomenon:
And if you’re looking for something a bit meatier than that sketch, Scott Johnson has a round-up:
The sight of chalked messages proclaiming Trump 2016 around the Emory University campus has allegedly induced unbearable suffering among some 40 to 50 of the students. These students have brought their suffering to the attention of Emory President Wagner with the demand that he do something about it. I took a quick look at the doings on campus in “At Emory, a trail of Trump tears.”
Emory University Professor Harvey Klehr comments in “Emory’s administration panders to the forces of illiberalism.” The estimable Heather Mac Donald takes the doings as a teachable moment in “Hey, college ninnies — grow up!”
