    Thanks for the multiple insults Burnie, and not for the first time in the last 10 months either. Think I'm done paying for content that earnestly devalues me as a customer because of political leanings. Wish you guys the best though, I'm sure you'll be fine without me.

      It's almost like they don't give a shit if the 10% of America who still thinks Trump is a decent human and/or president subs. My true feelings being said, a comedy channel who pokes fun at easy targets is not a new thing. Perhaps you're sensitive to it b/c it's now a target you care about?

    • Tyberos FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I have no problems with people throwing political jokes, I quite like them in general. Lewis Black happens to be one of my all-time favorite comedians ,in fact,  and has been quite political through most of his career. The difference is directly insulting a specific demographic of your viewership based on their political beliefs. I bash peoples character because of their political views.

      You insinuate that I believe President Trump to be a decent human being. Sad reality is, I dont think he is a good person. The difference is, as I said before, I dont and wont go out and say "Your a shitty human being because you voted a different way than me". And that is what is happening here, and has continually happened here for months.


      Further you claim that I am only sensitive to it  "sensitive to it b/c it's now a target you care about". Well naturally I care about myself, dont you care about yourself? But again, the insinuation that I wouldnt care about this for anyone else is quite absurd and baseless. But maybe thats not good enough for you? Fair enough, how about the handful of times I had to rescue a friend while deployed, who's views I absolutely disagreed with? Are the times that I risked my own life to save his enough? Somehow, I suspect not.


      Questioning a persons logic is completely acceptable and should be expected. What you are missing is that I dont really care what your views are politically, I respect people for who they are first and foremost. And unfortunately Burnie overstepped here by directly insulting people and what truely saddens me is that there are so many here who are willing to turn a blind eye just because politics.


      Anyway, I will state that even though I wont support them financially any longer, I still wish them the best in their future endeavors. Even this doesnt diminish the good times I've had with them.


      Have a good life guys!

      When you a support a person, you support the actions they take and the things they stand for, regardless of whether or not they are a political figure. It has become blatantly obvious where this administration stands and the values they hold. To still stand in support of something like that places a clear definition on someone's morality. For example, how many people still praise Lance Armstrong as an astonishing athlete or Bill Cosby as a brilliant family-friendly comic.

      I can't speak for Burnie as I'm not him, but I'm pretty sure he's not targeting every person who voted for Trump, but rather the people who have watched him say and do the things he has done in office and choose to still stand by him. If his distinction is not clear enough then there may be an argument that something is wrong with the jokes, but then I also have to wonder why the distinction is so unclear in the first place. In other words, if there was a notable right-wing movement denouncing the current administration, maybe these jokes wouldn't feel so broad and all encompassing.

    I enjoy the comedy that is done by so much of RT but i feel like so much of Burnie's jokes on this episode were just low hanging fruit and are just a means to voice his opinions about Trump. I have 2 things to add, first is that I view the RT vids similar to sports and by that I mean they are a means to escape and entertainment to step away from the drama of the real world. Then secondly all i would ever hear from people who voted for our past president, when I disagreed or criticized him was that you need to respect the office of the presidency or comments to the effect of my disagreement with his policies made me a racist or a bigot because he is black. And i feel like Burnie has this sense of being a caring person who is actively trying to be conscious of the world around him and making it a better place, but all that these types of comments are doing is continuing to increase the divisions in our country. I don't think that people who are conservative or Liberals, Democrats or Republicans, or who ever else, holds their political views because they are bad people but because the honestly believe that what they think is the right thing to do to help the country and the people of this country, along with all the other people around the world that we support and continually aid. So RT please stop with the low hanging fruit of MSNBC political headline jokes and come up with something original, but other then that keep you political views to yourself. If you would like to start a show where there could be some political debate with honesty and self control, rather then instantly going to the basement for jokes and comments, I think that would be great. These types of conversations are needed right now, but honestly when RT makes jokes like these it really makes me wanna stop watching them, not because I disagree and can't handle it but because Im continually frustrated with our overly divisive country right now.

      I mean, just don't watch dude. I'm enjoying the "low hanging fruit." It's almost as if the content is made for a broader audience than just you and me. They don't always make content that I vibe with. So I don't watch it. BUT I also wouldn't want to take it away from anyone else.

      Remylebro, mcLawson is a first member. He pays for this content and as a paying customer, he has a right to not be constantly alienated by Roosterteeth. It's not fair on him. I, personally, disagree with his opinions (I feel entertainment is the best place for politics, parody, satire, ridicule, etc) but it's not fair on him to have politely voiced a complaint and be even further ridiculed.

      Paying doesn't give you the right to control content. Paying for content is a way of saying you enjoy it and want to support it, if recent political turmoil means they no longer enjoy it and want to support it, they merely need to stop paying. One of the great things about roosterteeth is how much content even nonpaying viewers have access to so being a first member really isn't a leg to stand on in this argument.


      In reply to mclawson, I think you make a great point about how people responded to you criticising the previous governments politics as compared to how people criticise the current one. Personally I think the main difference is that people are against Trump as a person as well as a President rather than merely a problem with his politics. I'm not saying you're wrong but it does tend to complicate things when it's more personal.

      AtlasNEDMeth_Anthetamemes thanks to the kind comments, I knew that this would get down voted to hell, but I was hoping there might be come decent conversation had here. I think on just a more personal note, I know that Burnie and RT have talked about this idea that because so many watch RT and feel close to the personalities of RT for myself when these types of jokes are made it almost feels like I'm being attacked by those people in the show. Now I know thats not the case and someone did make a good point that Politics is a good place for comedy, but I think to AtlasNED's point its become so much more than comedy on Trumps politics but more about attacking him as a person. To other peoples points about I can just not watch or its merely jokes, that is correct but my point is more about how its continually frustrating to listen to them bash trump, comedy, etc is a great place for political humor but just like anything else when your constantly making the same jokes over and over again they loss their luster and aren't funny anymore and just become a person venting their anger or dislike for something.
