I just heard an interview with Wanda Sykes where she said "when it comes to Trump, the nation's comics are doing God's work". What do you think?

Interesting comment.
Her reaction to her results on “Finding Your Roots” was more interesting to watch.

True. Seems only comics are the only ones talking about the kids trump and his deplorable voters have in cages.

I think someone like Wanda Sykes claiming any sort of work for God is astoundingly absurd.

@KNOWITALL Please enlighten me. What is “someone like Wanda Sykes” like? I don’t know much about her.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@janbb Flaming liberal with a filthy mouth.

I guess you have a pretty narrow view of who can do G-d’s work.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@janbb I guess you dont recognize her sarcasm.

She’s nevertheless very funny and insightful when it comes to Stinky. Google her /trump for some clips devoid of bad words

It’smitey likely that when it comes to the nation’s comics, Trump is doing god’s work (which by definition does not exist).

Interesting, actually! I’d say the world’s comic are put him on the fool’s stage, front and center, with a spotlight on him, right where he belongs.

I don’t think Sykes was being sarcastic. I suspect she meant that comics like Colbert, Seth Myers, Trevor Noah, and Jimmy Fallon are highlighting what they and she see as Trump’s destructive actions.

A comedian’s act, is largely political. Think about Richard Pryor, or George Carlin. These are comedians, from decades ago .
I wouldn’t call it “God’s work,” but it opens eyes. That’s better than a religious text. That closes eyes…
So. The guestion, really asks “what is God’s work?”

That’s an intriguing question. And likely has multiple answers, from different people.

I like to think of such things, as an awakening point. A time where you question your faith, and it’s legitimacy. A HUMAN moment. An introspective moment.
Then, you draw your own conclusions, based on reality…Or your perception of reality….

They bring up things that most of us don’t think about
