#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: Trump Sends America Into Rapid Decline — But Being Losers Isn’t All Bad

By now everyone has realized that Donald Trump isn’t “making America great again.” Indeed despite his blustering rhetoric, Trump’s presidency has consistently elevated China, Russia, and other US rivals, while diminishing our country’s prestige and prospects every day. From the Trans Pacific Partnership to the Paris Climate Accords, the botched diplomacy of this buffoonish president […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah And Michelle Wolf Solve ‘The Weinstein Problem’

“I’m glad Harvey Weinstein likes people watching him shower. Because there’s a lot of that in prison.” Yes, Trevor Noah is righteously outraged over the Hollywood producer’s misogynist aggressions, which now include at least two allegations of felonious assault under investigation by New York police detectives. But as the Daily Show host points out, that […]

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Mocks Epic Fox News Fail In Vegas Coverage

Trevor Noah and The Daily Show staff watch Fox News Channel so we don’t have to — and even in the wake of a profound tragedy like the Vegas shooting, the antics of Murdoch’s on-air personalities provide a measure of comic relief. At Fox & Friends, the opaque motives of the shooter puzzled hosts. “We […]

#EndorseThis: Trump’s Wingnuts Are Furious Over His ‘Bipartisan’ DACA Flip-Flop

Overnight, there is a shiny new “bipartisan” Donald Trump. In a series of stunning turnabouts, the president has switched positions on some signature issues. His latest tweets indignantly suggest that it would be crazy to expel those wonderful young Dreamers — the same policy he demanded for the past two years. But he isn’t fooling […]

#EndorseThis: How (Not) To Cope With North Korea’s H-Bomb

With Kim Jong Un brandishing a thermonuclear weapon — specifically his very own “peanut-shaped” H-bomb  — the world faces fresh peril. So what is Donald Trump’s strategy for dealing with this threat? Let’s just say Trevor Noah is not impressed. In fact as summer ends, he’s just glad he isn’t wearing white pants.

Harvey

#EndorseThis: Trump’s Second-Hand First-Hand Harvey Moment

Are we stupid for knowing what words mean? Evidently Sarah Huckabee Sanders thinks so — because in hyping Trump’s Hurricane Harvey junket, she has redefined what “first-hand” means. The Daily Show‘s Trevor Noah calls out her offensive diction.

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Laughs At Trump’s Biggest Lie Ever

For many months, Americans have wondered exactly how Donald Trump is connected with Russia. And for just as many months, Trump has repeatedly replied, “I don’t have anything to do with Russia!” He has stuck with that mystifying denial stubbornly, despite a mountain of evidence showing that it’s false. Now Trump lawyer Michael Cohen has […]

Trumpcare

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Dramatizes The Terrors Of Trumpcare

To Trevor Noah, the Senate Republicans’ insistence on hiding their Trumpcare bill is reminiscent of a teenage boy hiding to masturbate. “What are you doing in there?!” demands America, banging on the Senate door. “Nothing!” cries an excited Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as he finishes off Medicaid. It’s a raunchy metaphor, but the Republicans have […]

#EndorseThis: Donald Trump Flips Off The Entire Planet

Watching the president deliver his Rose Garden announcement that the United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord, a disastrous occasion that called for solemnity, Trevor Noah was not impressed: “I don’t know what’s worse, the fact that Donald Trump may have doomed the planet, or the fact that announced it like it’s an […]

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.

#EndorseThis: Another Trump Impersonator Crashes The Daily Show

This Trump impersonator isn’t Alec Baldwin but comic Anthony Atamanuik — and he has a lot to say about Mexico, fake news, and the president’s self-serving scheme to cut the corporate tax rate by more than half.

#EndorseThis: Performance Artist Alex Jones Is All Too Real

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.

#EndorseThis: Is Jared Kushner The Real President?

To anyone who knows Jared Kushner, the real estate heir and failed newspaper owner, the notion that he is a top adviser to the president of the United States is astonishing, perhaps even alarming. But the ever-growing list of assignments turned over by Donald Trump to his polite, photogenic young son-in-law has now reached a […]

#EndorseThis: We Should’ve Bought Trump A Fisher-Price ‘Play President’ Set

As the leader of the free world dons a hardhat and mimes shoveling coal, Trevor Noah confesses: “President Trump may destroy the world, but goddam he’s cute. You can’t deny that.” Watching him on tape, the Daily Show host suddenly understands: “All Trump ever wanted to do was play president. We should have just given him […]

#EndorseThis: Trump Dons His Tinfoil Hat

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.”

#EndorseThis: Trump Declares War On…Nordstrom?

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 on Trump press conference Russian dossier

#EndorseThis: How Could Anyone Justify Spreading Unverified Gossip About Trump?

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!

On Daily Show, Obama Warns Trump Against ‘Flying Blind’ Without Briefings

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.”

#EndorseThis: ‘The Daily Show’ Shows Trump Voters What ‘Extreme Vetting’ Looks Like

There is an inherent contradiction in the Republican candidate’s rhetoric: though he purports to defend these groups which he alleges are under attack, he has also made and encouraged disparaging remarks about many of those same groups.
