Awkward ‘comedy’ bit with Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Andrew Yang at DNC couldn’t be more ‘cringe’

While comedy used to be about being funny, the awfully unfunny “comedy” shticks at this year’s Democrat National Convention made it seem as if Democrats have redefined its meaning, much as they’ve redefined the meaning of practically everything else.

Case in point: To spice up the opening of the convention’s fourth night this Thursday, ostensible comedian Julia Louis-Dreyfus and failed Democrat primary candidate Andrew Yang tried to perform some comedy routines.

And well, they left much to be desired, according to critics.


Even “Never Trumper” Tom Nicholas, a member of the discredited Lincoln Project, cringed in despair at Louis-Dreyfus and Yang’s brand of “comedy.”


This sentiment was shared by other blue checkmark Twitter users as well, some of them decidedly liberal, and some of them undoubtedly conservative.


The general public was even more scathing:

Notice the repeat use of the term cringe. The reality is that every day and night of the Democrat National Convention has been uber cringe thanks to the Democrats’ ironically typical poor decision-making.

On the second day of the convention, Sen. Elizabeth Warren appeared as part of a Native American Caucus, despite her sordid history of falsely proclaiming herself to be a Native American Indian. A DNA test eventually proved that she’s just a white woman.


Another constant theme throughout the convention has been the overwhelming presence of the exact sorts of clueless left-wing celebrities whom regular Americans despise.

It started with actress Eva Longoria kicking off the convention on Monday and has remained consistent throughout, though the abundance of celebrities appears to have done little to help the convention attract and retain an audience.

“At press time, posted viewership [for the convention’s first night] marks nearly a 28% drop from the high-stakes DNC of 2016. Broadcast channels ABC, CBS, and NBC were down a staggering 42% with just 6.7 million viewers at 10 p.m.,” the Washington Examiner reported Tuesday.

“Cable networks Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN were down 16% to nearly 12 million viewers. In total, that’s fewer than 19 million views — or 28% the viewership of the 2016 DNC. That’s roughly on par with the higher-rated Democratic primary debates, not one of which came within a stone’s throw of the best-rated 2016 Republican debates.”

Ratings for the convention didn’t spike until Wednesday, the night that former President Barack Hussein Obama made his appearance.

Other than for his appearance and, eventually, Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s speech Thursday, the convention has been a celebrity fest.

And well, this fact seems very telling to some conservatives:
