Trump the butt of most jokes in 2017

The Star Malaysia - - World -

NEW YORK: Did you hear the one about Pres­i­dent Trump? Or, more pre­cisely, did you hear all 3,128 jokes? A think tank that has stud­ied the con­tent of latenight com­edy for the past 26 years said Donald Trump was the butt of more jokes in 2017 than any other pub­lic fig­ure has for a sin­gle year. By a lot. He beat the pre­vi­ous record of 1,816, set by Trump as a pres­i­den­tial can­di­date in 2016, said the Cen­ter for Me­dia and Pub­lic Af­fairs at Ge­orge Ma­son Univer­sity in a study re­leased on Fri­day. Prior to that, the record was 1,717 by for­mer Pres­i­dent Bill Clin­ton in 1998, the year of Mon­ica Lewin­sky.
