Skip to comments.Clinton Goes after Laugh Factory Comedians for Making Fun of Her
Posted on 11/18/2015 1:10:53 PM PST by amorphous
In what appears to be a first for a serious presidential contender, Hillary Clinton's campaign is going after five comedians who made fun of the former Secretary of State in standup skits at a popular Hollywood comedy club.
A video of the short performance, which is less than three minutes, is posted on the website of the renowned club, Laugh Factory, and the Clinton campaign has tried to censor it. Besides demanding that the video be taken down, the Clinton campaign has demanded the personal contact information of the performers that appear in the recording. This is no laughing matter for club owner Jamie Masada, a comedy guru who opened Laugh Factory more than three decades ago and has been instrumental in launching the careers of many famous comics. "They threatened me," Masada told Judicial Watch. "I have received complains before but never a call like this, threatening to put me out of business if I don't cut the video."

Next thing u know she`ll go after rodeo clowns and film makers.
Nice night club you got there, be a shame if something happened to it...............
I can't imagine why!
She will put them in jail.
It might cause a terrorist attack like in Benghazi.
But she will still vote for Hillary.
It’s only funny if they make fun of conservative women. Like Sarah Palin.
I watched it. It wasn’t funny. It did make me want to grab a few mortars and go riot.
I guess it's true you can't fix stupid.
She’s just mad because she’s been practicing her comedy routine on the stump and the Laugh Factory hasn’t invited her to perform yet. Excerpts from her routine include:
They keep asking me if I wiped my server. Every day they ask. I don’t know what they mean — what, like with a cloth? (Cue the laugh track.)
You mean Clinton didn’t claim the comedians were sexist by merely opening their mouths? We all know any word spoken in negative fashion towards Hitlary is sexist! /s
“I have received complaints before but never a call like this, threatening to put me out of business if I don’t cut the video.”
All of America could get such calls during a Hillary regime.
Being a life-long liberal or leftist is no defense - slight deviations are often punished harder than sullen opposition by leftists in power.
Some of the biggest mass graves that the Bolsheviks left in Moscow, were filled with the International socialists who flocked their cause. There would be absolute discipline within the Party - no discussions or opinions. It is not about the ideology, that is only to delude the masses - it is about an absolute dictatorship of the leader on top. Deviant thought or weak loyalty will not be tolerated.
1. You are a public figure.
2. The Supreme Court ruled several decades ago that parody and satire of public figures are fully protected under First Amendment rights, based on a case against MAD magazine.
In short, you can't shut them up. After all, the comedians on the Left have been putting down Donald Trump and he just shrugs them off....
Wasn’t much in them.
I thought her SNL skit was worse. It made her out to be a lush — and she was in that skit.
Jamie Masada is a dude. Not that that is permanent nowadays!
Tyrants don’t like being mocked.
Is he Pauly Shore`s dad?
