      Boomers : "go back to your safe-space snowflake" Millenials: "ok, boomer..." /sarcasm Boomers: "did you just call me the n-word?!"

        As a member of Generation X, I'd like to tell both the Baby Boomers and the Millennials to go fuck themselves. Each group is equally whiny, entitled, and self-important. They are living, breathing examples of how familiarity breeds contempt.

            Why is it that Stephen being one host understood it and the whole panel of co-host on 'the view' didn't?

                    I like that Stephen, being a boomer, responds to an outrageous accusation by a boomer with the 'dismissive' remark, "Ok boomer."

                            It's ok for older millennials to say it. It's not ok for young millennials or gen z'ers to say it. They're about as equally useful.

                                                            Colbert is the only one who clearly understands to just play into the joke to make it funnier. Cannot stand the lack of self awareness that some of these late night talk show hosts have when it comes to internet culture. This boomer shit is only funny because the older generation doesn't get it and over exaggerates its meaning but Colbert gets it.

"Youtube Commenter"?, "some dude"?, "persons person"? come on, how else are you gonna streamline my motivations, dumb down my presence, ignore anything I write down. At least put me in some direction like "right" or "left" or "north" or "south" or give me some color, how about that? am I white? black? slightly brownish with a light touch of pink? or genderize me, am I male? female? transcontinental?
