If Trump insulted the late night comics for every Trump-related thing they did, he'd spend his whole day on Twitter just writing insults at...

Oh wait.

Never mind.

I don't understand how he has a late night show. He's really not funny.

His skits and on-location specials are the funniest things on typical late-night shows. His studio show isn't great, but who the fark cares about network (or basic cable) studio shows?

Subby, if he does go after Conan on Twitter he's going to look a whole dumber than he does now.

Where did this "Let's buy Greenland!" thing come from, anyway?  Was someone on Fox News talking about it while Donnie was on the can having his 4 AM KFC squirts?

It just feels like it's some dumb idea Trump's got stuck in his brain, and no one dares tell him we can't do it.  Next thing you know, someone will make a sarcastic joke in his presence "Yeah, next we can colonize Uranus", and he's Tweeting about how we need to spend trillions to probe Uranus.

/it sounds like "probe your anus"

The travel shows are good. I think he was in Haiti after the shiathole countries comment.

FTFA: O'Brien even suggested offering Florida as part of a trade deal. "Trust me, this is our best state," he said. "And please do not Google Florida."

What's ironic is, it's Greenland's melting glaciers that are going to submerge Florida. Maybe that's not ironic. Maybe it's just good business.

45 won't shy away from any challenge to make himself seem dumber by taking on another wittier opponent.

go for it.  maybe this will make him even crazier.  add team coco to his enemy's list.

Great! The Stupid Bar ain't set low enough! I betcha El Cheataloonie will: mock Conan's name, hair, profession, Conan wanting desperately to be on "The Apprentice" but not smart enough, and you know things that might happen-you never know, like Greenland has lots of water around it, and it's not like you can drive a truck to it or maybe Space Force could have a base there-and my ratings were always better than any of those late night shows....

I think it's the format of his show. Conan O'Brian himself is pretty charming and funny, and I think the hardest I've ever laughed at his material was during 2007 writer's strike, when Conan just went out and winged it.

CSB: Had a friend years ago who was trying to break into stand up comedy. A number of clubs she would work at, Jay Leno would be there. Gilda said he was always the nicest guy, funny (duh) and gave her some solid career advice. She's still in the biz, loves it.

I'm on the fence. I hate the Greenland thing, but I want to see Coco dump on Donnie. Except then Donnie will just sh*t on the chessboard, peck up (not a typo) the opposing King and run away and squawk about his "big win" versus "no-talent late night hacks."

Sure you can. Just eat a big meal with a lot of cabbage in it, and when it's time - you will let out such a fart the likes of which you've probably never heard. It'll be a fart so loud, that the bomb squads from Palistine will check in on you. It'll be so noxious that Saddam Hussein will rise up from the dead and say "now that's some kinda gas".

Then you have quoted the president, Donald J. Trump.

You were so preoccupied with whether or not you could type that joke out, you never stopped to think if you should.

Even though humor is subjective, if you had to objectively prove someone was funny Conan probably has the best comedy resume of anyone alive (except maybe Mel Brooks).

Hey, parleying a dumb Trump Lead Zeppelin idea into a fully-paid trip to Greenland. Brilliant.

Conan O'Brien's big giant Irish head is full of brains. He coulda bin an Irish lawyer with a Harvard degree if he had been a bit dumber and less imaginative.

I wish I were that smart.

I could be in Greenland right now! Buying land at Louisiana purchase prices (pennies an acre) and selling lots for beach front luxury houses at say $1,000,000 for 100 feet of footage and roughly the same depth!

The most likely source for Dolt45's public mouth-shiatting about Greenland is the Pentagon and/or State Department briefing about the probability of conflict for resources above the Arctic Circle. As the sea ice gets thinner, the Northwest Passage will suffer a Gold Rush-style free-for-all as nations compete for previously scarce resources now becoming economically viable. Greenland will likely become a major strategic asset for those conflicts (not necessarily shooting wars, but cut-throat economic competition).

That's all fairly straighforward, but Tangerine Twatwaffle only hears parts of what other people tell him (unless his name is mentioned, of course). He decided the US could just buy Greenland, never mind that Denmark is in no position to sell the place and the First Nations people living there want nothing to do with Emperor Hirocheeto. He started babbling about buying Greenland without input from the State Department or even mentioning the idea to Denmark. Now he's trying to cover up the fact he shat himself in public (again) by running off at the mouth (again) on subjects he knows nothing about (a long and distinguished list).

Remember when Marmalade Mussolini made the campaign pledge to make other countries respect the US? Every time he blusters and bumbles his way into any international topic (where other countries can no longer ignore him), he gets nothing but howls of derisive laughter.

Is anyone else getting a strong smell of Caligula in the vicinity of this Deranged shiatgibbon? With just a hint of Domitian (all the perfidy but none of the competence).

May as well rip off the Aristocrats for something with that level of finesse. I'm thinking one would have to post-fart, introduce the gas cloud as the first baby to ever be spawned by a sitting president... maybe give it a job as Press Secretary.
