Citing ‘Irregularities,’ Roy Moore Sues To Stop Certification of Doug Jones’ Victory

With only hours to spare, Roy Moore filed a lawsuit to prevent Alabama officials from certifying Doug Jones as the winner of the U.S. Senate race, according to the Associated Press. The Republican nominee’s court action was aimed at a state canvassing board, set to declare on Thursday that Jones officially won the Dec. 12 […]

#EndorseThis: Samantha Bee Says Sassy Deserves Thanks For ‘Bama Victory

While Roy Moore talks to himself about recounts, Samantha Bee is performing his electoral autopsy. Yes, he more or less endorsed slavery and there was that teenage molestation problem — all of which alienated the kinds of voters who rallied behind Moore’s victorious Democratic opponent Doug Jones. Sam is determined to make sure that Moore’s […]

#EndorseThis: On SNL, Santa’s Tricky Moment With Savvy Kids

When the great Kenan Thompson put on his Santa Claus suit to hear Christmas wishes from children, he didn’t expect the unseasonal and uneasy questions they’d pose about the most troubling recent news events. These kids want to know about Franken, Moore, and Trump — and even Matt Lauer’s “toys.” And they’ve drawn an unwholesome […]

#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 […]

#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 […]

#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: 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 […]

#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 […]

Roy Moore: An Acid Test For The Self-Righteous Right

Whenever a politician insists too fervently on his own pious morality — and his duty to impose that particular brand of morality on everyone else — the safest prediction is that sooner or later, a scandal will emerge. For Roy Moore, the former judge now running to fill Jeff Session’s Senate seat, the new revelations […]

This Week In Crazy: Welcome Back To The Nuthouse

And we’re back. The right wing kicked the year off by freaking out in spectacular fashion to President Obama’s executive actions on gun control, indulging in some pandering to those precious Iowan evangelical ballot punchers, and kicking that dead horse called “traditional marriage” into a pulp. Welcome to “This Week In Crazy.”
