WATCH: Fighting on ‘The View’ continues over the Russians
It really sucks that there aren’t any high profile female conservative comedians out there. Wait. Scratch that. I don’t necessarily mean conservative comedians. I just want comedians who aren’t raging feminists suffering from severe stages of TDS. Is that too much to ask?
Amy Poehler recently spoke to the Hollywood Reporter and talked a little bit about Trump’s presidency. She’d like everyone to know that it’s extremely difficult for women not to have panic attacks every single day.
“It’s really hard to not have a full-on panic attack every day.”
How pathetic and dramatic can you be?
Ask me how many Trump-related panic attacks I’ve had since his election. Hint: Zero.
“Women have been rightly and righteously furious about this administration and have been working together and bonding together just in an attempt to make sense of all of it,” she said. “Every woman I know has a text chain, every morning we just say, ‘Can you believe this? Can we break this down together so I don’t lose my mind? Anybody out there?’ Because it’s really crazy-making.”
Wait– anti-Trump women have big text groups where they b*tch to each other every day about how they can’t believe Trump is POTUS? Holy crap, get a LIFE, ladies.
“I can’t watch him speak. It’s so upsetting,” she continued.
She also acknowledged her sons’ privilege for them, so that was nice of her.
“They have to understand their privilege in the world. They cannot just live in a bubble because truly the world depends on it. We are handing them a world that’s on fire — the oceans are rising, the animals are dying — and saying, ‘Good luck, kid!'” she said.
The thing is, I think she considers them privileged because they’re men– not because they’re the offspring of a famous rich person.
PS– she’s been trying to unpack her own “deep institutionalized misogyny.” Just so you know.
“I’ve been trying to unpack my own deep institutionalized misogyny,” says Amy Poehler. “Our generation of women, Gen Xer women, we desexualized ourselves. And that stuff gets really ingrained. I grew up in a time where trying to sympathize or empathize with the male experience was how I was able to be included in the experience.”
Like I said. Where are all the funny non-hysterical female comedians?
