South Park Will Stop Trump Jokes to Avoid Becoming CNN


Looks like South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker don’t want to follow down the same long, sad road CNN is on.
South Park is a show that’s known for making fun of both liberals and conservatives alike, but in the wake of Trump being entirely overdone, Parker and Stone are backing off the subject big time.
Thank goodness there’s at least one show that knows the Trump jokes are getting old.
“South Park” creator Trey Parker says his subversive show won’t feature too many Trump-themed gags in its upcoming season, a deliberate effort to avoid becoming a cable news show disguised as an animated comedy.
Parker told the Los Angeles Times that he never intended “South Park,” now entering its 20th year, to be a show that obsesses over every political controversy of the moment, which today usually involves the president’s latest tweet.
“We did start to become that, though, especially the last season,” he said.
“We fell into the same trap that “Saturday Night Live” fell into, where it was like, ‘Dude, we’re just becoming CNN now.’ We’re becoming, ‘Tune in to see what we’re going to say about Trump.’ Matt [co-creator Matt Stone] and I hated it but we got stuck in it somehow.”
“South Park” has earned legions of fans — and the distinction of being the second-longest running animated series in TV history — by skewering the sacred cows of both the progressive left and the family-values right.
Over years of taking on, among other sensitive topics, Christianity, Islam, gay rights, illegal immigration, and transgenderism, the show has become perhaps the foremost political satire in popular culture.
