Triumph the Insult Comic Dog attacks College political correctness in viral video

“Can I hump your leg? I know I look like a dog, but I identify as a shinguard.”

Just a quote from the awkward and insightful new video clip from Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, of Conan fame, addressing a female University of New Hampshire (UNH) student in a segment about campus political correctness for Triumph’s Election Special 2016, which streamed on Hulu.

In addition to the primary, the school’s “Bias-Free Language Guide,” which declared words like “American,” “mothering,” and “healthy” to be beyond the pale of civilized discourse, proved to fuel their selection by Triumph’s alter ego, Robert Smigel.

During the clip, the insult hit their victims between the eyes, making them look humorless and helpless undergrads unprepared for the “real world.”

Triumph uses a stereotype of a flamboyantly gay African-American man to call out their political correctness as the students try to find a non-problematic way to describe him.

As Smigel told Ben Collins at The Daily Beast:

I told the kids, “Act like you believe in what you’re doing and saying,” so they might have actually gone a bit too far. I can’t tell how that one actually plays because usually people laugh when they’re being made fun of. These kids were trying to hold it in.

This quote indicates that the UNH students might not actually be as uptight as they appear in the video, which is a good thing.

The truth is that their looks, expressions, eye rolls and hesitations reveal as shocking slavery to political correctness and “hate speech” in this generation.
