#EndorseThis: Chris Rock Says Jesus Is Coming Back To Kick Trump’s Covfefe

Politics involve action and reaction. The Reagan era led to the punk rock movement and a new generation of liberals. Bill Clinton’s election led to a conservative Congress, but the ensuing Democratic push-back gave us the golden era of the late 1990s. In today’s clip, taken from Chris Rock’s new Netflix special, the inimitable comedian […]

#EndorseThis: Kimmel Debuts His Own Trump-Romney Campaign Ad – And It’s Beautiful

Every politician reverses herself on a topic sooner or later. Smart leaders measure words carefully on each issue, knowing that foes will cast any minuscule change as a waffle. “Actually, what I said was…” is a popular quote during debates. Even if a candidate seems to have moved her position slightly, it’s not spelled out […]

#EndorseThis: Trump White House Official Crushed By Maddow For Ugly Parkland Comment

Let’s admit it. Sometimes, trolls on social media seem happy when something terrible happens, so long as it makes the other side look bad. Whether it’s fires, floods or a housing crisis, a reprehensible minority of Twitter users react with glee, so long as the story hurts their political opponents. Reasonable Americans tune it out […]

#EndorseThis: John Oliver Returns, Destroys Trump On Behalf Of Planet Earth

What do Wonder Woman, rotting corpses, and bad male-enhancement ads each have to do with the buffoonery of President Trump? Seems like those threads would be hard to weave together in a monologue. Click play, and watch a master at work. In a triumphant return to HBO, comedian John Oliver rips Trump a new fault […]

#EndorseThis: Montel Williams Says GOP Would Rather Police Bathrooms Than Fight Gun Violence

Montel Williams has interviewed enough troubled teens over the years to know that they shouldn’t be buying guns. And he’s observed Republicans long enough to know that the petty obsessions of the GOP tend to drown out empathy and common sense. In this MSNBC clip, Williams rips the Party of Lincoln for caring more about […]

Report: Parkland Shooter Wore Trump Hat, Trained With White Supremacist Group

The leader of the white supremacist group Republic of Florida told the Anti-Defamation League on Thursday that Nicolas Cruz, responsible for a shooting spree at a Florida high school that killed at least 17 people on Wednesday, trained with the organization and belonged as a part-time member.

#EndorseThis: Oprah Humbly Smacks Down Reporter’s Suggestion Of Posturing For 2020 Run

In a time of mourning over the Florida school tragedy, there is a cry for leaders to set aside politics and do what’s right to protect our children from guns. So it’s ironic that in a CBS interview for 60 Minutes, recorded before the Parkland massacre took place, one of America’s bravest progressive voices was […]

#EndorseThis: Kimmel’s Trump Family Valentines Are Just As Scary As You Would Imagine

Halfway through Jimmy Kimmel’s latest monologue, it appears that the comic intends to avoid politics altogether. Instead, Kimmel laments the hollow consumerism and awkward shopping moments of Valentine’s Day, offering that robots, not people, should be taking calls for flowers and cards. That way, lovers wouldn’t have to give away embarrassing bedroom-nicknames and intimate secrets […]

Newt Gingrich

#EndorseThis: Newt Gingrich – Yes, Newt Gingrich – Calls BS On Fox & Friends

Don’t worry folks, your daily dose of #EndorseThis is not turning Republican. Even if it were, we wouldn’t give much airtime to Newt Gingrich, former GOP Speaker of the House whose bogus “Contract with America” was voided almost two decades ago. But credit where credit is due. In today’s clip, Gingrich tells President Trump’s giddy […]

Colbert

#EndorseThis: Colbert Nails Trump For Punting The Economy Into A Sarlacc Pit

President Trump may think of countries other than the USA as “shitholes.” But Stephen Colbert sees Trump’s big deficit-spending, sugar-rush economy leading America into a hole that even Luke Skywalker can’t rescue us from. The comic begins a biting rant on the state of our wallets by welcoming Trump-era Federal Reserve chief Jerome Powell to […]

#EndorseThis: Samantha Bee Stings Nunes Over Trump’s Abuse Of Memo

Leaving President Trump alone with anyone, man or (especially) woman, is a bad idea. In fact, even leaving Trump alone with an inanimate object isn’t a completely safe move. In today’s clip, Samantha Bee describes how the POTUS was unwisely given time alone with the infamous Nunes memo for “several hours”…leading her to the unsavory […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Discovers Hair-Raising Truth About Trump’s Wind

President Donald Trump has taken plenty of selfish, vain positions over the years. But no one shall perceive Trump’s real agenda when it comes to Mother Nature herself. Except of course Jimmy Kimmel. It’s all so clear to the comic now. The POTUS has some strong feelings about the wind…and we can see why. Trump’s […]

#EndorseThis: U.S. Army Colonel Tricks Fox Host Into Admitting Trump Parade Is Authoritarian

When authoritarian regimes take hold, there’s a phenomenon that philosophers call the “blank-out,” the moment when cognitive dissonance clashes with sanity. A dictator’s subjects refuse to use reason and begin spouting slogans instead…even when a child could see the folly in their arguments. In today’s clip, U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters surprises Fox News […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Anoints Hannity High Priest Of Pro-Trump Bulls***

There’s a lot to like about this epic Trevor Noah news rant on Monday’s episode of The Daily Show. It begins with President Trump flinging wild accusations — and it can’t end without a good ol’ Mortal Kombat reference, as Trevor details the GOP’s futile efforts to shut down the investigation into Russian election interference.

#EndorseThis: ‘Trump’ Destroys White House, Pushes The Button In Super Bowl Ad

Suppose a copy writer is tasked with scripting a warm, G-rated commercial with a President Trump impersonator in it. How to proceed? Find a celebrity NFL quarterback (like Kirk Cousins) and let him joke around on camera. But between the lines, kick the real-life POTUS everywhere it hurts. This D.C. area Super Bowl ad for […]

#EndorseThis: Right-Wing Realist Ranks Trump Atop List Of All-Time Stupid Criminals

We aren’t used to hearing conservative pundits say wise things about President Trump. And given the joyless, paranoid rantings of men like Sean Hannity and Alex Jones, America’s right wing isn’t exactly a wellspring of laugh-out-loud humor. Enter Jennifer Rubin. In this clip courtesy of MSNBC’s The Beat with Ari Melber, the neoconservative WaPo columnist […]

#EndorseThis: Samantha Bee Opens Rescue Farm For Displaced Trump-Era Diplomats

President Trump promised voters he would “drain the swamp” in Washington D.C. Instead, Trump has been busy draining the nation’s capital (and U.S. embassies around the world) of competent employees. Full Frontal host Samantha Bee won’t stand for the abuse of sentient animals, including humans. In today’s clip, Bee visits her own “rescue farm” for […]

Trey Gowdy Joins Record Number Of GOP Lawmakers Leaving Capitol Hill

Just minutes before South Carolina Republican Trey Gowdy announced that he would forego a bid for reelection to the House of Representatives, a train carrying several GOP lawmakers crashed into a truck in Virginia. The accident killed the truck’s driver and injured several members of Congress, making it no laughing matter. But it’s hard not to […]

#EndorseThis: Kimmel Makes Stormy Admit Denial Of Trump Affair Is Fake News

President Trump says “fake news” so often, it’s easy to forget he co-opted the term from reports about Russian bots on social media. Russia pushed actual falsehoods at Americans in 2016. Trump somehow distorted that story into an attack on CNN. The Donald has savaged ABC too. But the network’s top comic Jimmy Kimmel is […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Sends B-Team To Scout Trump’s C-Grade Border Wall

In today’s clip, Trevor Noah finds himself distracted by frivolous office-harassment claims…so he sends pesky butt-touching duo Dulce Sloan and Michael Kosta to Tijuana instead. Their mission?
