What the right-wing in the United States tries to do is undermine the press.
There's nothing too serious that I can't make a joke out of it. There's no crisis too crazy that I wouldn't want to make a joke out of it.

But I'm just trying to lighten the mood, folks!

You can't really be passionately moderate. It's like wearing an 'Extra Medium' - it doesn't exist.
