#EndorseThis: Colbert Can’t Stop Watching Trump Speech Slur

Watching Stephen Colbert troll Trump’s disastrous decision on Jerusalem relieves the sense of dread a little. But then at 1:56, the president of the United States unmistakably blunders into a speaking slur that will make you laugh and shudder at the same time. Colbert says he could watch that moment over and over. And in […]

Mueller

#EndorseThis: Yes, ‘Robert Mueller Is Comin’ To Town!’

“You’d better watch out You’d better not cry You’d better not lie to the FBI Robert Mueller’s comin’ to town!” Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon — who once ruffled whatever that is on top of Trump’s head — made a valiant bid last night to catch up politically with woke competitors like Kimmel and Colbert. […]

#EndorseThis: Trump Lawyer John Dowd Is Now Channeling Nixon

Sometimes the parallels between the present national crisis and the Watergate scandal are almost eerie. Consider the latest argument from Trump attorney John Dowd (the same sly mouthpiece who implausibly claimed to have authored a highly incriminating presidential tweet). Last Sunday, Dowd claimed that the “President cannot obstruct justice because he is the chief law […]

Saturday Night Live

Saturday Night Live: Flynn In Clanking Chains Haunt Ebenezer Trump

His greedy tax “reform” would delight Scrooge. His former associates, indicted or facing prosecution by the special counsel, haunt his dreams. His character is a Charles Dickens villain in the Oval Office. Yes, he’s Ebenezer Trump, starring in the Saturday Night Live version of A Christmas Carol. This week’s cold open brings back Alec Baldwin, […]

Kimmel

#EndorseThis: After Twitter War, Jimmy Kimmel Flattens Roy Moore

Jimmy Kimmel is the most dangerous comedian in America today, as Roy Moore just learned to his everlasting embarrassment. Their brief Twitter beef — which began with the Alabama Republican challenging Kimmel to meet him “man to man” — concluded with a devastating monologue on ABC last night. Suffice to say that Kimmel didn’t appreciate […]

Kimmel

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel On Donald Trump And Sexual Harassment

Trump’s tweets about sexual harassment at NBC News — and the firing of Today host Matt Lauer — led Jimmy Kimmel to ask: Does he even know who he is? It’s a question the media could ask about the president every day, given his bizarre conduct, but as always Jimmy Live is forthright where others […]

#EndorseThis: The Hideous Truth About Trump’s Tax Reform

It’s always fun when The Daily Show compares and contrasts past statements by politicians with what they’re actually doing now. So as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan prepare to ram through a “tax reform” bill that will increase the deficit by $1.4 trillion, you can listen to what they said […]

#EndorseThis: Which Trumpster Is The ‘Confederate House Elf’?

Which Trump appointee resembles a “Confederate house elf”? Which Trumpster looks like “the limo driver who won’t stop asking if you party”? Which one is the “maître d’ at a Mafia-themed pizzeria”? And whose picture would a doctor display if you had “an erection that lasted more than four hours”? Stephen Colbert has all the […]

Alex Jones

#EndorseThis: Lil Alex Jones Suspects Baths Are A Plot Against Men

The jokesters at CAFE are onto something about conspiracist Alex Jones: Whenever the Infowars host achieves full psycho, his out-of-control crying and shrieking resemble nothing so much as a child throwing a titanic tantrum. They were hardly alone in seeing that Jones is ripe parody material, but they were the first to cast him as […]

Kushner

#EndorseThis: In Watergate Sequel, Which Role Will Kushner Play?

The Russia probe increasingly resembles the worst days of Watergate: A crooked Attorney General who suffers from catastrophic memory loss; top White House aides who similarly cannot “recollect” their own incriminating activities; other top aides (or former top aides) talking with prosecutors and Congressional investigators; and a president in denial about his own grim prospects. […]

Roy Moore

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Chortles As GOP Goes Squishy On Roy Moore

Suddenly Donald Trump is all in for Roy Moore, the alleged pedophile and Bible-thumping fanatic whose Senate vote the Republicans need to pass their tax plan (and screw over his working-class constituents in Alabama). To defend this revolting endorsement, Trump claimed that Doug Jones, the former prosecutor running against Moore as a Democrat, is “soft […]

Colbert

#EndorseThis: Colbert Parses That Funny (And Flakey!) Trump Tweet

How many laughs can Stephen Colbert squeeze from a single Trump tweet? Whenever somebody really irritates the president — someone like Senator Jeff “Flakey” Flake (R-AZ), for example — the Late Show host brings forth comedy gold. Parsing nearly every phrase typed by those stubby fingers, Colbert seems truly disappointed that the most powerful man […]

#EndorseThis: Weekend Update Singes Franken — And Roasts Sessions

You may click to see how Al Franken’s friends at Saturday Night Live deal with the Senator and SNL alum — none too gently, but just right. The Weekend Update duo appears to understand that what the Minnesota Democrat did was obnoxious and sophomoric, yet far from the atrocious alleged assaults on teenage girls by […]

Franken

#EndorseThis: Can We Still Laugh About Al Franken And Roy Moore?

Are you feeling sad about Al Franken’s admission that he behaved inappropriately toward Leeann Tweeden on a USO tour in 2006? So are we. But as Trevor Noah notes, the Senator from Minnesota has apologized, taken responsibility, and invited an ethics investigation of his actions. That powerfully distinguishes Franken from Roy Moore, the Alabama Senate […]

Moore

#EndorseThis: Stephen Colbert Digs Up Another Roy Moore Robocall

Stephen Colbert is keeping close watch on the Roy Moore scandal and its fallout. He’s amused by the spectacle of Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) scampering down a spiral staircase in the Capitol to avoid an inquisitive reporter. He’s less amused by the mysterious robocall that went out to voters, featuring a fake journalist who identifies […]

#EndorseThis: Trump Sends America Into Rapid Decline — But Being Losers Isn’t All Bad

By now everyone has realized that Donald Trump isn’t “making America great again.” Indeed despite his blustering rhetoric, Trump’s presidency has consistently elevated China, Russia, and other US rivals, while diminishing our country’s prestige and prospects every day. From the Trans Pacific Partnership to the Paris Climate Accords, the botched diplomacy of this buffoonish president […]

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Scorches Trump And Junior Over Wikileaks

Now that we know Donald Trump, Jr., secretly communicated with Wikileaks during the 2016 presidential campaign, it may be slightly harder for the president to distance himself from accusations of collusion in the Russia probe. Nor did Trump senior didn’t help himself by declaring his faith in Vladimir Putin’s denial that the Kremlin interfered in […]

#EndorseThis: John Oliver Delivers Scathing Review Of Trump Year One

In his final show for 2017, John Oliver revisits some of the most embarrassing and obnoxious moments of the Trump presidency over the past year. He zeroes in on the many ways that Trump has trashed presidential norms, from hiding his tax returns to keeping assets that create enormous conflicts of interest. Even Trump’s speech […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Trolls Trump Over Vietnam Visit

We always knew Kellyanne Conway loves to party — and she was celebrating the anniversary of Trump’s election when Jimmy Kimmel caught up to her. With the president in Vietnam for an international conference, Conway couldn’t resist tweaking liberals like Kimmel who recall Trump’s history of draft-dodging. “Suck it, John McCain!” she exclaimed. “Our president […]

#EndorseThis: “From Russia With Love” To Trump’s Perp Walk

Some very naughty person posted this mean, unfair, over-the-top video — featuring a cast of familiar faces, from Michael Flynn to Ivanka Trump — in celebration of the Halloween indictments by special counsel Robert Mueller. In its gloating excess, the “From Russia With Love” fantasy is extremely nasty to the Trump gang and asks viewers […]

#EndorseThis: Are Corker And Flake Heroes? Seth Meyers Thinks Not

Lionized for denouncing the authoritarian, plainly deranged president, Senators Bob Corker and Jeff Flake are a pair of unlikely heroes. After all, as Seth Meyers recalls, they were all too happy to support Donald Trump for president last year — long after the casino developer’s personality and political defects were obvious. Now Corker complains that […]

#EndorseThis: Colbert Spoofs Trump Feuds With Flake And Corker

Like almost everyone else in America, Stephen Colbert is enjoying Tennessee Senator Bob Corker’s erupting feud with Trump. Brawling broke out again on Twitter Tuesday, after Corker denounced the president on TV morning shows and Trump fired backs several angry tweets. “Some of what Trump said about Corker was not true,” notes an earnest Colbert.

#EndorseThis: Why Trevor Noah Is So Angry At John Kelly

Trevor Noah never says so, but it is easy to imagine why John Kelly’s attack on Rep. Frederica Wilson pisses him off. What Kelly did by lying about Wilson — and presumably imagining he could get away with it — represented a textbook example of white male privilege inflicted on a black woman. A retired […]

#EndorseThis: Hillary Tells It Like It Was About Trump’s Inauguration (Uncensored)

The new, let-it-all-hang-out Hillary Clinton was over in London last week, promoting her book What Happened – and surprisingly showed up on the fabled “marmalade couch” of BBC’s Graham Norton Show, where she ruefully recounted the tale of her appearance at Trump’s inauguration. You may have heard this story before, but not the way she […]
