The Daily Show’s Lewis Black Addresses Live’s Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan Situation Like the Goddamn Disaster It Is


We were all lightly bummed when we found out Michael Strahan is leaving Live With Kelly and Michael for Good Morning America, and slightly more so when we found out the charismatic banter he had been sharing with Kelly Ripa lo these many years might not be born of a deep and beautiful friendship. But only Black has the cojones to call it what it is: a catastrophe akin to Germany’s annexation of Poland and the O.J. Simpson trial. Black then edited himself squeezing tomatoes and working out and shouting into clips of Live. You know, if a regular person made this argument, they would be considered insane.
