'They're Much Smarter than Him!': Media Critic Destroys Trump's Petty Feuds with Late Night Comedians

Even as many in the media scold liberals taking a confrontational stance toward members of the Trump administration, President Donald Trump has continued his childish and petty habit of carrying on feuds with other celebrities, completely undermining any dignity his office may carry.


On CNN Monday, Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik argued that president's attacks on late night hosts like Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, and Jimmy Kimmel just further his own embarrassment.

"He's in dangerous territory. These guys are really smart," Zurawik told Brooke Baldwin.

Even by just engaging with the comedians, Trump lowers himself. Zurawik noted that Fallon made two sharp points in his back-and-forth with Trump. First, he noted that First Lady Melania Trump's anti-bullying campaigns don't seem to be working. And second, Fallon said he had more important things to do than wallow in the feud, emphasizing how ridiculous it is for the president to be stopping to this sideshow.

"This guy is just not serious," Zurawik said of the president. "I mean, he's dangerously silly and even showbiz stupid in a way with these tweets and these attacks. What is he fighting with a late night host for?"

He continued: "They're much smarter than him! These are not the guys he wants to fight with... Taken together collectively, late night is a wall of mockery of trump. and I think that's a good thing."
