Michelle Malkin talked about late night hosts using attacks on Trump as a way to "stay relevant" on Friday's edition of Hannity.
MALKIN: I really don't know how much lower these clowns in late-night can get. I don't want them to be filtered, I don't want them to be censored. I want them to keep showing America how hate-filled and how vile and how filthy so much of their thinking about public discourse in America really is.
I think that they are grasping desperately at these attacks because it's the only way, I think, that they can stay relevant.
"Where do these people get off thinking that we actually care about their opinions on serious policy matters?" Malkin asked, referring to late night hosts turning away from bread and butter comedy and toward politics. "And, yeah, I'm looking at you, Jimmy Kimmel."
Kimmel received backlash this week in a heartfelt monologue he delivered about his new child born with a heart defect and defended Obamacare
MALKIN: They really should be thanking Donald Trump. They are now all absorbing what's being called in the TV industry a so-called 'Trump bump.' Prior to Stephen Colbert sinking as low as he has gotten his ratings were actually dwindling and I think that they are grasping at these attacks because it's the only way I think that they can stay relevant.
There was a time when late night comedy could appeal to a broad demographic of people in America. And whether it was stupid pet tricks or talking about doing pranks on your kids at Halloween or the bread and butter of so much late night tv. Having on fellow celebrities to chat about the Tinseltown fluff.
But, no, no. These people now believe so much of their own press. And this is the problem with living and breathing and working in coastal bubbles. Where do these people get off thinking that we actually care about their opinions on serious policy matters? And, yeah, I'm looking at you, Jimmy Kimmel.
