That's Rich: Jerry Springer Blames Trump for Decline in Civility

<More Typical lefty Hypocrisy And Projection Here>

On Friday, Jerry Springer who made millions capitalizing on fights between family members on his decades-long NBC show after a scandal-plagued political career blamed President Donald Trump for America's declining civility.

"Civility is critical in terms of our norms, and we can't function as a society unless we have norms of how to behave," Springer told MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle. "You can't pass enough laws to take care of every human interaction."

He insisted that when political leaders "misbehave, when they say the norms don't matter, when they say, 'You can use whatever language you want, anything you can get away with, get away with it. If you don't pay taxes, you're smart.' ... When they have this behavior, it tells society that we really don't have any norms anymore. There's no appropriate way to behave. We can't have that in the leadership of our country."

Ruhle rightly pressed Springer on the disconnect between the incivility celebrated on his show and this newfound love for civility.

"Jerry, are you saying it's our leaders that need to set the example?" Ruhle asked. "Because, again, the success of your show in some part was predicated on America's love of the battle. When people were chanting 'Jer-ry! Jer-ry!' it wasn't when the people on your stage were hugging it out."

Springer argued that his show "was about dysfunctional behavior, so obviously everyone who's going to appear on the show is acting dysfunctionally. That was the point of the show. But no one ever suggested, never did I do a final thought, and say, 'This is the way you ought to behave.'"

Then he argued that it was ridiculous to suggest that just because there is "a crazy television show where you've got people that admittedly are dysfunctional, therefore, it's OK to have an administration that's dysfunctional."

"When you have the president of the United States using language that even on our crazy show we'd bleep out, then society's in trouble," Springer quipped.

Yet Jerry Springer's own connection between Trump and his show belies this holier-than-thou approach. "I used to joke and say that my anger at the president is that he took my show and brought it to the White House," the TV host said.

It is rather rich to see Jerry Springer chiding Trump for a lack of civility. After all, this is the same Jerry Springer who stood up in New York's Times Square and celebrated the fights on his show.

That is rich coming from Jerry Springer, one of the worst potty mouths in TV history. He is an idiot.

But you can write enough checks as mayor of Cincinnati to pay off all those hookers.

Springer seems to be implying that Trump bragged about illegally not paying taxes. As we all know, that's not the case. Trump minimized his tax liability by using laws available to everyone. I'm willing to bet that Springer has used a tax deduction or two...

Nothing says civility and class like Jerry Springer.

This is just as stupid as when Madonna blamed the public of moral decay after years of her videos and comments promoting deviant sex. She said she feared for raising her daughter in this country.

Just like she or Jerry didn't have anything to do with or causing it with their chosen professions? Typical democraps always blame others for exactly what they have done themselves?

They are a special kind of mentally ill.

It's easy when they bounce (the checks not the hookers).
