#EndorseThis: Reporter Shares Audio Of Trump Cheating His Way Into Forbes 400

Pro wrestling has been lampooned for “mystery men” who were obviously famous grapplers in disguise. For instance, Andre The Giant performed as “Giant Machine” in the 1980s, though anyone with a brain knew exactly who was under the mask. And then there’s Donald Trump, whose fakes and forgeries make the WWE look like Masterpiece Theatre. […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Compares Trump’s Foreign Policy To A Cheesy 80s Sitcom

They say a blind hog still finds an acorn. But even a hog couldn’t be quite as hammy as President Donald J. Trump. Today’s priceless clip shows comic Trevor Noah unable to control his mirth when Trump, finally granted a lone success story with CIA chief Mike Pompeo’s “secret” trip to visit DPRK dictator Kim […]

#EndorseThis: Stephen Colbert Thinks He Knows Who The Stormy Daniels Sketch Incriminates

Millions of viewers tuned in on Tuesday night to see Stephen Colbert’s hot-button interview with former FBI director James Comey. It wasn’t the only highlight of the evening, however. The opening monologue was not to be missed. Colbert begins by drilling Michael Cohen, President Trump’s lawyer who is now under investigation by the Department of […]

#EndorseThis: Comedian Outs Roger Stone For Threatening His Dog

New York comic Randy Credico knows how tough the political world can be. A former left-wing gubernatorial candidate, Credico feuded with conservatives and moderates during his most recent run for office in 2014. But nothing could have prepared him for how vicious and petty a fight with a member of Team Trump could be. In […]

#EndorseThis: Debating Comey Role In 2016 Election, Maxwell Debunks Spin

The term “revisionist historian” is usually associated with Neo-Nazis who claim that the Holocaust never happened. While we aren’t ready to compare rank-and-file Republicans to that group, there’s no denying that the GOP has done some serious revising of the most recent campaign for President…and it’s not even 18 months in the past. In today’s […]

#EndorseThis: Seth Meyers Proves Trump Pee Tape Is Real

To many observers, President Donald Trump remains a mystery wrapped in an enigma. But the truth about Trump is often right there in front of us, peeing on our heads in a Moscow hotel room. Seth Meyers has had enough charades. In today’s clip, Meyers brings up an old quote from Trump that he says […]

#EndorseThis: Stephen Colbert Exposes Tucker Carlson As A Panda Plagiarist

Media bias is identifiable by which stories are not covered as much as by screaming headlines. We didn’t hear much about the booming Clinton economy from Rush Limbaugh in the 90s. Recent gains in the stock market have been soft-pedaled on liberal websites, maybe because the profits are as hollow as Limbaugh’s brain. Leave it […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel’s Resident Trickster Makes A Fool Out Of Pat Robertson

We can’t help but notice how hard Pat Robertson squints his eyes when he prays on TV. Perhaps the arch-conservative televangelist is trying to black-out the sins of his past, which include pushing for war in the Middle East, telling women not to be independent, and blaming 9/11 on homosexuals. Jimmy Kimmel believes in fighting […]

#EndorseThis: Fox News Legal Guru Says Trump And Cohen Are Guilty Of Crimes

It may not sound like a blockbuster that somebody from Fox News is siding with Democrats on Trump and the Mueller investigation. Kat Timpf, Juan Williams and others have braved a backlash to oppose the POTUS on Fox. But those are liberal or at least moderate voices. Accusations of bias are inevitable, even if patently […]

#EndorseThis: Maher And Geraldo Channel Vidal And Buckley In Epic Debate

If campaigns are Thoroughbred races, then political debates are prizefights. A truly great debate will see both sides laid down for the count, only to come back with a flurry of point-scoring. This clip from Real Time With Bill Maher begins with Fox News correspondent (and loyal Trump ally) Geraldo Rivera sparring with Maher over the […]

#EndorseThis: Jordan Klepper’s Trump TV Is As Terrifying As A Roseanne Tweet

Jordan Klepper’s style is a little different from most comics featured by #EndorseThis. With his premise as a self-satirizing right-wing Trumpist, the jokes come fast and loose, and often at the expense of a clear narrative. But Klepper can chalk up this sketch as one of the cleverest bits of comedy from the Trump era. […]

#EndorseThis: FAU Students Expose White Supremacist Professor

Southern white slave owners were the group most responsible for African-American slavery. Sounds like a fairly obvious statement, doesn’t it? Those revisionists who try to blame African slave-traders or other groups are rightfully associated with the the alt-right, the Klu Klux Klan or the lunatic fringe. Until they start teaching at public universities. In today’s […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Morphs Into Crude Trump Supporter In Front Of Kids, And Somehow It Works

Lost in the wake of so many wonderful on-air rants has been the voice of Jimmy Kimmel, who is making a case for himself as one of the best political sketch-comics in Hollywood. Today’s clip must have sounded like the world’s worst idea in the writers’ room. Kimmel greets a trio of kids, game-show style, […]

#EndorseThis: Heineken Gets Skunked By Trevor Noah Over Blatantly Racist TV Ad

If Kendall Jenner’s odious Pepsi ad seemed like a nadir in tone-deaf marketing, wait until you see the latest TV ad from Heineken. It’s not just the final shot and the ad’s punch line that offend. The portrayals of African-Americans are trite, outdated and disrespectful, making the tag line feel like it was written by […]

#EndorseThis: Chris Christie Makes A Stunning Prediction About Trump’s Fate

Chris Christie was once a Republican coastal liberals could get behind. That was before a series of selfish, vindictive, and corrupt decisions left the former New Jersey governor without a solid constituency in either party. Do you believe in redemption? Christie is making himself quite useful as a pundit on ABC’s This Week, where his […]

#EndorseThis: Agent Mulder Tells Samantha Bee’s Detectives What’s Actually Wrong With FEMA

FEMA’s two biggest foul-ups of modern times have happened with Republicans in the White House. The human toll of storms like Katrina and Maria has been enormous, but the screwball failures of FEMA under Bush and Trump have made each respective disaster worse. Samantha Bee’s Full Frontal has been in Puerto Rico this week, learning first-hand […]

#EndorseThis: CNN Anchor Traps Right-Wing Preacher Into Dumbest-Ever Trump Defense

Many Americans have long-suspected that the Christian Right is full of hypocrites and opportunists. Few incidents have ever provided more proof than the Donald Trump-Stormy Daniels controversy. In today’s clip, CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin confronts Republican pastor Darrell Scott with very interesting video footage of Trump shot in 2015 at a “Family Leadership Summit” where The […]

#EndorseThis: Nicole Wallace Builds A Wall, And Trump’s Gonna Pay For It

How can President Trump’s vitriol toward the world be expressed in one image? Leave it to an unlikely source – Nicole Wallace, NBC News titan turned troll-extraordinaire. Or at least that’s what Twitter is calling her after a memorable gambit on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House. Faced with the unfathomable task of describing Trump’s years of aggressive […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Casts Bob Mueller, Stormy Daniels In Fifty Shades Of Trump

We’ve established at #EndorseThis that Trevor Noah is a comedian of forbearance. Often, the jokes told early in his monologues seem less-funny on purpose, as the audience is set up for giggles followed by roaring laughter when the covfefe hits the fan. To be fair, Noah is solid gold from the start in today’s clip, […]

#EndorseThis: Parkland Survivor Brushes Back Chris Wallace On Gun Control

The true heroes of last weekend’s March For Our Lives, teenager Delaney Tarr and other Parkland shooting survivors have been extremely fair. They are not just bashing the White House or the Florida governor’s office. If a politician from any party is tied to the NRA, he or she is getting outed. But in a […]

#EndorseThis: Stormy Daniels Lawyer Tells CNN His Case Against Trump Is Christmas In Springtime

We’re all used to lawyers acting confident. Johnny Cochran, who successfully defended O.J. Simpson on murder charges, famously strutted into the courtroom as if the trial itself was merely a formality. But it isn’t every day that a lawyer treats going to work like a holiday. It must feel like that when you’re taking President […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Destroys Trump Family Over Blatant “Made In America” Hypocrisy

We try to touch on breaking news and top trends here at ET, and the whirlwind of Trump administration scandals to focus on makes it harder to pick a monologue every day. But given insidious nature of the current White House, what isn’t in the headlines is often as bad or worse than any viral story. […]

#EndorseThis: Hunt Says Lamb Win May Change Capitol Hill…While Kornacki Charms America

Keystone State Democrats deserve high praise for a closely fought victory in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District, where Conor Lamb holds a slight lead over Republican candidate Rick Saccone. Lamb may be a hero, but he wasn’t the viral superstar of Tuesday night’s election. That honor goes to Steve Kornacki, MSNBC’s manic maestro of the moment […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Pans Trump As The Dotard God Smiled On Over North Korea

Trevor Noah has left his religious views ambiguous in memoirs written to-date. But we can speculate that if Noah has an image of God, it’s a vision of a tolerant and peaceful spirit. The comic may also believe, firmly, that God has a sense of humor. The Daily Show‘s satirical genius starts slowly as usual in […]

#EndorseThis: Oprah Shrugs Off 45, Becomes The Anti-Trump In Van Jones Clip

Oprah Winfrey may not run for office in 2020…or ever. But if nothing else, she is proving that a quiet, gutsy, progressive voice can call and raise President Trump’s anti-Hollywood shrieking. In a new CNN interview clip, Oprah does what any great commander would do. She begins by allowing her second-in-command (the eloquent Ava Duvernay, […]
