Jay Leno Calls Late-Night ‘Depressing’ Because of Trump Coverage

"It's all depressing Trump stuff."

Former “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno told The Hollywood Reporter that late-night has become “depressing” because of its continual and constant coverage of President Trump.

“When I did the show, Bush was dumb and Clinton was horny and it was human problems,” Leno said. “Now it’s all anti-women, anti-LGBT, anti-Muslim, anti-Mexican, anti-Salvadoran; it’s such a negative thing. God bless all the late-night hosts, they make it funny, but ultimately, it’s depressing.”

He continued: “You don’t really watch late-night TV to get away from reality anymore; now it’s more in your face. You laugh but then you go to bed going, “Oh man, the world is really pretty rough.” And it’s not, it’s one man that causes all these problems!”
