David Spade is returning to the small screen with his own Comedy Central series premiering later this month.

But if fans of the former “Saturday Night Live” cast member are expecting to see his humor take aim at the president, they might be disappointed. In a recent interview, he explained his decision to shy away from Donald Trump jokes.

“I will live or die with whether people think I am funny or not, because they have all done that so I don’t even know what I can even know what I could add to that,” Spade said.

In fact, he said politics in general won’t be a theme of his show.

“At this point it would be just piling on,” Spade explained.
