Sure, he’s had a bunch of divorces and yes, there are plenty of comedians who are happily married with kids, but we’re talking about the culture here and in America’s eyes, Trump represents a good dad with great kids who wants to get back to when America was great, and comedians represent a reboot of everything traditional and that’s the nuclear family. Comedians are deeply scarred human beings who shudder at the very idea of a family. They’re not pro–gay marriage because they give a shit about two random homos who want to fuck everything that moves while pretending they live for matrimony. They’re pro–gay marriage because they’re anti-marriage because they’re anti-family because their childhood sucked.
I'm going to go a step further. It's not just comedians. The so called "elite" or "opinion leaders" hate Trump. The reaction isn't rational, as it might be if the reason was tied to some policy issue or decision making paradigm. The complaints I hear about Trump aren't what you might call "substantive" arguments. When they get around to an actual argument its all about style over substance. The tone is based in envy and spite.
Trump isn't bad because of his ideas. Trump is bad, because he is successful. Trump is bad because he is popular. Trump is bad because he has a message, that voters (gasp) like. Trump is bad because he is Trump.
Donald Trump is a constant reminder that plenty of us had parents who loved us and made us feel good about ourselves. We have mimicked this success story and created families of our own. We’re happy and what’s worse, we’re content. For the most part, comics are miserable people who developed the ability to make light of a bad situation. We get laughs from them because we’re not in a bad situation so it’s like doing a shot after you won the lottery. To us, seeing a comedy show is like taking Prozac when you’re not depressed. It’s a bonus. To the comedians, it’s what they need to stave off suicide. The more America becomes great again, the less resonance the kvetchers have. And when your entire ethos is based on complaining, you don’t want prosperity. It bums you out.
I'd only change one thing about Mr. McInnes's piece:
For the most part, Liberals are miserable people. To the American Center and Left, constant bitching is what they need to stave off suicide. The more America becomes great again, the less resonance the Republican and Democratic Political Parties have. And when your entire ethos is based on complaining, you don’t want prosperity.
Other than that little edit, Gavin McInnes was spot on. For those of you who don't know, Gavin McInnes is kind of like Fred Reed, except he knows which fork to use and how to order foo-foo drinks.
