For approximately the last month, recently departed press secretary Sean Spicer’s blunders took place behind closed doors since the White House instilled a no-cameras policy for daily briefings. In that time, one was easily liable to forget just how incompetent Spicer actually was. So, as a farewell bid, The Daily Show compiled some of his greatest hits to jog one’s memory.
What the Daily Show host offers, aside from a pungent, highly instructive review of Trump scandal developments since the Comey firing, is a quick lesson in why nearly 40 percent of Americans don’t quite comprehend the hoodlum character of this president and his associates.
A talented comic, Hasan Minhaj entertained a sometimes humorless crowd, which groaned at jokes that you may well consider hilarious. “No one wanted to do this,” he kidded, “ so of course it lands in the hands of an immigrant. Don Rickles died so you wouldn’t ask him to do this gig.”
However fake his act, fans think the Alex Jones performance art is real. They may even act out in response, like the nutcase who showed up at Comet Pizza to search for pedophiles with a loaded gun that he proceeded to fire in the Washington restaurant.
Hosted by Roy Wood Jr. and Hasan Minhaj, this slightly loony sketch features several of the maddest Trump tweets emanating from the powder room atop Trump Tower, where the short-fingered vulgarian reportedly taps out his complaints before dawn.
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.”
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.
Trevor Noah suspects the Ivanka blowup may hint at deeper political problems. “For someone who would have won the popular vote, Trump seems pretty unpopular! IIt must be those millions of dead illegal immigrants who aren’t buying Ivanka Trump shoes.”
Daily Show host Trevor Noah feels a natural sympathy toward the orange-hued billionaire now, as must Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Ted Cruz, all of them victims of equally dubious tales — from birtherism to the JFK assassination. How could anyone justify spreading stories that are so obviously and completely false? Trump would never do that!
Keegan-Michael Key’s hilarious presidential “anger translator” Luther is back for one final appearance with Key’s partner Jordan Peele as Obama — delivering a pre-inaugural message from the Oval Office. Needless to say, Luther is cosmically pissed off by the advent of Donald Trump.
When host Trevor Noah asked the president about his successor’s assertion that he doesn’t need daily intelligence briefings, Obama said, “I think the president-elect may say one thing and do another once he’s here.” But he warned Trump, “It doesn’t matter how smart you are.” In the absence of regular intelligence updates, “you are flying blind.”
The Daily Show host is deeply concerned over protocol offenses against China, our biggest commercial partner – a rising superpower with a thermonuclear arsenal. And Trump can’t even seem to pronounce its name properly.
The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals decision, published Friday, quotes former Buncombe County, N.C., precinct chairman Don Yelton as saying on the Daily Show three years ago: If the North Carolina voter ID law “hurts the whites, so be it. If it hurts a bunch of lazy blacks that want the government to give them everything, so be it.”
Whereas Stewart’s bread and butter is calling out Fox News hypocrisy, Noah has an ability to use humor to remind Americans that they don’t care enough about the world around them.

In the latest update on the “scandal” that just won’t quit, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) named Rep.
