entertainers be allowed to go in mocking political officials?
As far as their networks allow them to, I say. Free speech applies to all speech, except that which causes panic. But political satire and comic ridicule is good for making people think without dragging them down. In ancient Greece, most of the public's political education was given in the form of theatrical satire and comedy.
I think it works. If a politician is offended by a comedian, then that is a good sign they need to do a self-check. They might not realize this, but self-checks are not always conscious decisions.
