David Chalian: ‘I Thought the Melania Joke Was the Best Joke of the Night’

‘Political strategists will always tell their candidate, when you’re doing humor, self-deprecating is the way to go’

CHALIAN: "I thought the Melania joke was the best joke of the night. Political strategists will always tell their candidates, 'When you’re doing humor, self-deprecating is the way to go.' That’s how politicians should always do humor. There’s plenty of material. Just make fun of yourself. It’s charming and the audience walks away with it. Both of these guys did not take that to heart all the way through their routine."
