dude was actually the reason i bailed on the show. i just found him annoying and largely unfunny. i still watch roy wood and jordan klepper clips online tho.
dude came on the breakfast club early in the trump admin said everyone was overreacting and needed to calm down because they were screaming that trump is a fascist and a threat to democracy. he said he actually lived in apartheid south africa and trump wasnt anywhere near that so he wasnt that bad. i was pretty much done with him then. completely aloof for someone heading up arguably the most storied political comedy show in the country. even tone deaf ass bill maher was banging the drum about trump/repub danger to the country ('ongoing coup').
anyway...who do you want in that spot? who do you think is most likely to get it?
hasan minhaj seems like he was pretty much groomed to take over that job.
