What would happen if you gathered an architect, an engineer, an interior designer, and a concrete guy to price out and “build” Trump’s unnecessary Mexico border wall? Stephen Colbert put this scenario to the test, and you can imagine how quickly it all unraveled.
Honing in on Speaker Paul Ryan’s claim that the House bill is “an act of mercy,” Rep. Joe Kennedy III (D-MA) set out to expose the obvious hypocrisy in a party that claims to have the best interest of the working-class at heart.
On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, neoconservative pundit Bill Kristol berated the Republican Party for rushing through an unpopular bill that has already faced brutal condemnation from the American Medical Association. At the end of the segment, Kristol predicted that the GOP bill is “going to fall apart and there will not be a vote.”
Stephen Colbert wondered who could possibly endorse a plan that kicks people off their health insurance. Suddenly, the Grim Reaper — or was it Steve Bannon? — appeared behind the Late Night host and danced onstage to celebrate his good fortune.
Last week, the media couldn’t stop gushing about how “presidential” Trump sounded during his address to Congress. But within a few days, Trump’s pivot towards sanity veered sharply back, with his most conspiracy laden tweets since he was the nation’s chief “birther.”
Donald Trump took to Twitter this weekend to dive deeper into his alternate reality where down is up, the Bowling Green Massacre actually happened — and President Obama tapped his phone last year.
Imagine if Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin were Facebook friends. What would their “friendversary” video look like? The Nix Bros, who are known for their political comedy videos, take this very question and turn it into reality with a downright hilarious, yet utterly terrifying, viral video.
On last night’s episode of Conan, the fearless late night host packed a bag and took his show on the road — to Mexico. O’Brien’s goal: Use his comedic platform to build goodwill among our Mexican neighbors.
Following President Trump’s address to Congress last night, the airwaves were filled with somber pundits praising the president’s “pivot” after he delivered a speech that exceeded the very low bar set for him. While Trump may have used his calm, low baritone to try to sound “presidential” and seduce America, Michael Moore saw right through the charade.
It’s in dire times like these that America misses its favorite living satirist, Jon Stewart. Luckily for all of us, he left the farm and crawled out of retirement — through a tunnel directly to the Late Show — to address the media’s toxic relationship with Donald Trump.
Kimmel couldn’t ignore the Meryl in the room, singling out the “overrated” Streep for an ironically Trumpian riff that concluded with a standing ovation for her. Later in the show, hoping that the president would be watching, Kimmel tweeted “U Up?” at Trump.
The always helpful Conan O’Brien headed to Mexico to give President Trump a hand in financing his controversial pet project. Roaming the streets of Mexico City, the affable TBS host brought a tiny brick wall “bank,” asking for coin donations from the Mexican people – whose reactions ranged from amused to angry.
Meyers ridiculed Trump for completely fabricating the idea of an uncontrollable immigrant crime wave and for inflating the number of undocumented immigrants in the United States, noting the non-alternative fact of a net loss of 140,000 Mexicans between 2009 and 2014. “That’s right,” quipped the Late Night host. “America has turned into a bad movie and people are walking out.”
In a rambling speech he spoke about “special” Ben Carson, tasked with the difficult job of finding the esoteric significance of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. “Yes, I believe Ben Carson will find the true meaning of HUD,” Colbert said gleefully on Tuesday’s Late Show, “just like in the beloved children’s story How the Grinch Stole Housing.”
Before Donald Trump left for the “Winter White House” in Florida — where he planned to kick off his 2020 campaign — the president took to his Twitter cocoon to berate his enemies, as is his habit. NBC’s Seth Meyers couldn’t help but notice that Trump failed miserably at sounding like an authoritarian strongman. Apparently, he hasn’t been following the cheat sheet Putin gave him as a guide for delegitimizing the free press.
Only two weeks into the new season of This Week Tonight, and Oliver has already brilliantly trolled President Trump — first with educational ads about the nuclear triad and the Geneva Convention, and now with an inerasable earworm that immediately gets stuck in your head like a Carly Rae Jepsen song. You can only hope that it also gets stuck in Trump’s head.
Donald Trump’s first solo press conference as president had all the trappings of a perfect late night comedy sketch: bizarre rants about Michael Flynn and Russia, the usual lies about his “huge” electoral victory, and plenty of unhinged moments involving what Trump called “real leaks, fake news, and the dishonest media.”
Once described by conservatives as the intellectual leader and conscience of the Republican Party, the Samantha Bee skewers Paul Ryan for his contradicting views on Trump’s policies and wonders how a “once principled social and fiscal conservative winds up in bed with a bigoted, adulterous grope machine?”
Press secretary Sean Spicer, the M.C. Escher of bullshit, claims Flynn’s resignation “isn’t a legal issue, it’s a trust issue.” But the Stephen Colbert wonders if what Flynn did was so darn legal, then why did Trump ask for his resignation? Colbert explains,“It’s funny ‘cause it’s treason.”
If Miller’s appearance on the Sunday shows reminded you of the least liked person in high school, that’s probably because not so long ago, he was in fact the least popular student at Santa Monica High School.
