Conover Demeans Himself, the Obamas, and the Audience

Humorous and educational, but Conover's use of foul words demeans himself, the Obamas, and the audience. Would be more humorous and just as educational without those. Why do American comedians continue to think they need to pander to mindless idiots who laugh at gutter language which, in real life, wouldn't be so funny to them?
