Jerry Springer’s ancestry and the problem with tears

When Jerry Springer did Who Do You Think You Are he traveled to Central Europe to visit the camps at which his ancestors had perished. Immediate ancestors, generationally-speaking. He cried. 
I felt no sympathy for him.

Why not? 
Because he stands in the audience of his show ripping the piss out of people. 
He drags men out on stage to be told they’ve been unintentionally dating other men, tells a fat guy and his skinny woman (who’s just been revealed as transgender to the fat guy) that, as a couple, they “look like a perfect ten from here”. That sort of thing. It’s sort of binary.
But is he funny? Yes. 
Is he politically correct, in terms of progressive values? Yes he is.
Would I support him? Yes I would, mostly.
