Getting people politically conscious is generally good for Democracy. Decent comedy holds a mirror up to the audience: "This, this is what makes you laugh, as you recognise yourself". Hopefully, this leads to understanding of the other, via exercising your empathic attributes. Comedy's a force for good in politics.

I saw Ruby Wax follow Trump around on TV many years ago. She was shocked at the complete absence of humour about the man. And was kicked out.
Trump has no sense of humor, I think he is like most reptiles.

The two party system in the states is different. Comedy there is one of:

a) One of their comedians poking fun at your guy (disregard completely)
b) On of our comedians poking fun at their guy (look how stupid)
c) Some 3rd party comedian making fun at both or either (might just be funny, or might not - see a & b above)
