Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.
Tuesday, May 23, 2017

If you find the daily deluge of Trump scandals too dizzying to follow; if you need to step back, take a breath, and gain perspective on the unfolding national disgrace of this administration; if you are simply exhausted and confused, then Trevor Noah is ready to help. Well, at least he will help to grapple with the events of the past week, which is about as much as anyone can handle .

What the Daily Show host offers, aside from a pungent, highly instructive review of the saga’s 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. Of course it’s because they’re hypnotized by Fox News Channel. But actually watching Trump’s favorite TV personalities try to spin away his defects and delinquencies is hilarious, in that depressing style we must now accept as funny.

Steve Doocy, Tucker Carlson, Kimberly Guilfoyle — they’ll all still be spinning as the paddy wagon pulls up to the White House.

  1. Watching Fox trying to normalize the President is getting quite surreal. They keep coming back talking about Clinton who’s not President and Obama who’s now a former president. Clinton was thoroughly investigated and testified before congress for several days and in the end no charges were brought against her. I’d love to see Trump sit before Congress and explain his actions as a candidate and as President. He’d have a complete meltdown

    • Congress is not going to bring trump in for umpteen hearings and $40,000 a piece. He is a republican and like the mafia, they will try and hide all his faults. One of those ill-educated, functionally illiterate republicans wrote a letter to our paper and it was in today’s paper. We can’t get anywhere with healthcare because the Democrats have refused to cooperate. They are not smart. The founding fathers were really concerned with those who were not smart destroying democracy.

      • I don’t expect him to testify before Congress. He’s not smart enough to give a defense for his screwed up policies. It would be fun to see him squirm though. He’d probably keep pleading the fifth anyway

        • Even if you excise Trump from the RussiaGate investigation, there remains the FACT that Russia hacked into the 2016 election expressly for the purpose of helping Trump win. They aLso hacked into Marco Rubio’s voter registries when it came down to only Trump and Rubio on the GOP side of the primaries. Why Rubio? Because Putin has bigger investments in Trump and none in Rubio.

          Money money money money is all the right wing liars and scum are ever after when they cheat to win elections.

          Today, thanks to these alternate conservatives who lie, cheat and steal from the middle class, that word “conservative” is like being forced to eat dirt. Nothing trickles down from these money hungry morons.

    • Deflection and projection are the standard tactics of the right. When one has no rational or legitimate argument as a response, it’s used.

  2. The latest FOX and Breitbart to defend Trump is focused on diverting attention from the Russian scandal, and all the damage his statements have caused to himself, the GOP, and the nation, is to focus on economic progress and low unemployment. I find it hilarious when the same people that 6 months ago called President Obama’s 4.7% unemployment statistics bogus, changed their tune and now call Trump’s, which is based on the same method used for decades to determine unemployment, evidence of his visionary economic agenda.
    What I hear when I listen to FOX, which is not often, or when I see Trump in Saudi Arabia sitting next to the people most responsible for 9/11, and the architects of the turmoil that afflicts the Persian Gulf and Middle East, in exchange for large Saudi investments in the USA, is a nauseating feeling that I suspect is not too different from what Comey felt.

    • No matter what the right wing and money grubbing Republicans continue to do, hacking into an election proven by 17 Intel agenies in the US and Europe, will never be shoved under the rug.

      Sure, they use their lame ass excuses that it is about Hillary. But, they know if they get away with hacking in 2016, no future election will be fair or honest. Make them prove what they post.

      That alternate facts BS is just that. Something is true based on evidence or it is a lie. That’s why right wingers are liars. Call them out and call them what they are: LIARS.

  3. All anyone EVER has to do to prove Trump’s modus operandi is to look at the past 4 decades of his life to see the pattern of Mommy Mary Anne’s little Donny Boy as obstinate, belligerent, high handed and sneaky as ever.

    But Trump is not a stranger to scandals. All of which the same mentalities like his want us to ignore. Why? By ignoring Trump’s own self created scandals, these morons of the right get to live as lawslessly as Trump. No one tells them what to do. No one enforces laws on them.

    Why anyone in their right minds wouldn’t think a bunch of money grubbing hicks wouldn’t be attracted to a Grifter in Chief like Trump has missed who the REAL Trump is.

    He always always always aligns himself with people he “thinks” are less intelligent. That way, he can pull the wool over their eyes and should his grifter schemes and plans go wrong, they become the perfect foil for blame. Trump does not believe in accountability. We’ve already seen his 113 days of that when he makes wild accusations in his ranting Tweet Storms and then back pedals away from it.

    Not to worry. If our US laws don’t get him, his owing billions to Putin will.
