Appearing on Fox and Friends, Trump lawyer Rudolph Giuliani appeared to suggest that the timing of the Stormy Daniels payoff was meant to coincide with the presidential election.
A few rising stars in comedy and political satire seem to be taking over YouTube. The epic Trumpworld take-downs of Samantha Bee, the progressive ranting of Jimmy Dore. Any clip from Trevor Noah and The Daily Show. Oh yeah? “Step aside, kindly,” says Stephen Colbert. Colbert makes an absolute buffoon out of Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu […]
Are members of the mainstream media conservative? Some, not all. Are they liberal? Nay, that’s also too much of a blanket statement. They can all be a little too comfortable, though, as any group of successful people can be. SS Calm Water, meet boat-rocker Michelle Wolf.

Reprinted with permission from Shareblue.com. Reporters who cover the Trump administration were instead defending it — and specifically press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders — Saturday night. But their efforts resulted in justified backlash. At the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, comedian Michelle Wolf delivered a wide-ranging roast that included 90 seconds of material on Sanders. The bit […]

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 […]

On Saturday Night Live’s cold open, Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Aidy Bryant) sets a certain fabulous tone at the press podium when she claims that a million women showed up in the streets to “celebrate the president’s first kick-ass year in office…We did it, girls!” Even so, none of the goggling reporters is ready for what […]

Silly me, here I’d been fantasizing about a soft military coup preventing the Braggart-in-Chief from starting World War III. Surely the Pentagon has procedures for removing emotionally-incapacitated commanders, and Trump’s generals, as he calls them, must have made contingency plans. Or maybe not. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says that arguing with a […]
In yet another moment of crisis, Alec Baldwin returns to Saturday Night Live as the president whose incompetence and laziness — ordinarily a sort of blessing — has become a terrible curse on the suffering people of Puerto Rico. So learns San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz (Melissa Villaseñor) when she places a desperate call […]
