Daily Show Creator Freaks Out Over Gutfeld Ratings, But Says Audience is 'Gross' Anyway.
...she still says you Golden Corral-eating freaks aren't welcome. So I looked into her diet.
I’m working on a couple of long and research-heavy things, but I had to share this nouveau Clinton “deplorables” moment, from someone who somehow manages to be even more repugnant than Hillary herself. Someone called Lizz Winstead. You don’t need further preamble. Just watch it:
No, I don’t know who Lizz Winstead is either. At least I didn’t until our friends at Newsbusters popped this clip up from the rabid leftist Dean Obeidallah’s conference call with what looks to be the most unfunny cast of characters since How I Met Your Father.
I do, however, know that when people like Lizz Winstead are upset, it’s f*cking hilarious.
Winstead seems totally unaware, for starters, that she looks like Shelley Berman playing Larry David’s dad in Curb Your Enthusiasm. Or maybe that’s what she’s going for.
Then of course comes the expletive-laden pseudo-elitist two minutes of hate against people she really needs watching her dwindling-audience shows:
“Look, here's what I always say, he ain't funny to me but we see that there's an audience out there for shit like that. There's an audience out there for shit like Joe Rogan. There's an audience out there of fucking shitty people. Seventy million people voted for Trump, like Fox News. Those people are going to laugh at shit we think is fucked up. So you know, the bottom line is do I want them as my audience? No. I would never want to go on that show. It would never benefit me in any way. All that would happen was I'd try to be on there and you would just get trolls in your Twitter field from here to eternity.”
Winstead’s conclusion appears to be that she’s scared to go on Greg Gutfeld’s TV show because of responses she might get on Twitter. Is there a word for shunning “the people” like this? Democraphobia? Is Lizz Winstead a democraphobe? And come on, as if Fox News and Gutfeld are properly “right wing” in the first instance. What a narrow field of vision these people have. Explains the glasses, though.
So is he funny? Not to me. But he makes jokes about shit that I care about, which is gross. I think that whole situation is gross but there is a market for it. The bottom line is there is a market for it. You know what else I think is gross? Golden Corral.
Winstead is the creator of the Daily Show. She is the “Chief Creative Officer,” which I assume means “Head Liar” of something called “Abortion Access Front,” which is also a euphemism for “Come Murder Your Babies Here.” And she has the audacity to talk about things that are GROSS?
I’ve never been a Golden Corral, by the way. But I suspect it’s probably on par with what Winstead confided was her favorite food, in an interview from 2019:
I would have to say some unsung foods, like spaghetti and meatballs on a stick. People don’t talk about it enough, and it’s really great.
But wait! There’s more. Regular readers know I love that extra mile. The dead horse must be flogged. Just to be sure.
Keep reading below but drop me your e-mail:
Winstead bemoans Golden Corral, as if it represents this untouchable lower class of corporate fatso America she would never be a part of. But I looked a little further into her diet. And this is real, by the way. I didn’t need to make it up. My penchant for parody is being murdered by the hilarity of reality. So here’s an interview from 2013, where Winstead reported her eating habits:
I was at MSNBC and the Ed Show people showed me their new offices — they had all these Krispy Kreme doughnuts, so I had three halves of doughnuts. They were the leftover halves, so I was basically cleaning up the box… Oh, but dinner was sad. I had the breakfast thing: blueberries, strawberries, and yogurt… Then I treated myself to five Girl Scout cookies: Savannah Smiles. Those are the lemon ones with the powder on them…
I ended up eating a turkey sandwich that had some cheese I didn’t understand. Instead of saying, Maybe I shouldn’t eat that cheese, I ate it… Saturday night was kind of a crazy shitshow because after the sandwich with the mystery cheese or sauce I had to go to Beacon to do a show and I didn’t eat anything, so I had a piece of what you’d call white pizza, just a giant pizza with “white” on it, and broccoli.
…So what I had for breakfast at 1:30 in the morning was more drinks, more beer, and an appetizer of onion rings followed by a BLT with fries…
You get the point. And Golden Corral is starting to look pretty decent in comparison to the shit Winstead shovels down her flapping gullet. And it’s definitely better than the Pharma-funded woke “comedy” she tries to shovel down America’s throat. A reminder:
