The New Yorker Cartoonist David Sipress: Laughing at Alec Baldwin, Samantha Bee Is ‘Resisting’ Trump

During Saturday’s “AM Joy” on MSNBC, David Sipress, cartoonist for The New Yorker, said that laughing at Alec Baldwin’s President Donald Trump impersonation on “Saturday Night Live” or watching a “terrific monologue” by TBS’s Samantha Bee is “resisting” or “pushing back” against the president.

“If you sit there and you watch Alec Baldwin on ‘SNL, ‘ and you’re laughing, or you’re watching a terrific monologue by somebody like Samantha Bee, and when you’re laughing, you have the feeling that you’re resisting a little bit, that you’re connected to other people who agree with you, and are pushing back,” Sipress told host Joy Reid.
