Jimmy Kimmel and Donald Trump Jr.

While most of the country was celebrating Passover and Easter with their families like normal human beings, the Trump family freakshow was attacking prosecutors and obsessing over trivial issues that divide the country. Late-night comedy host Jimmy Kimmel, perpetually mocking the Trumps with excellent precision, spotted a bizarre set of Easter messages from Donald Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr.

The once-elected and twice-impeached former president used the holiest of days on the Christian calendar to do what he does best: put out a series of statements slamming his critics, including New York Attorney General Letitia James, whom he called “racist” for simply investigating him.

“This is rare, because typically when he lashes out at a racist attorney general, it’s one that he hired that later turned on him,” Kimmel noted.

As if that wasn't bad enough, the former president’s equally awful son posted an image of heavily armed Easter bunnies guarding eggs. Seriously, Don Jr. seems to have some bizarre violent furry fetish, or maybe something worse.

“What does this have to do with anything? Is somebody threatening to take the Easter Bunny’s machine guns away?” Kimmel asked. “Don Jr. is into some weird porn.”

Stephen Colbert Returns To Mocking His Favorite Target

Putting aside his obvious failure of a lifetime in launching a brutal, unnecessary, and costly war in Iraq, the not-so-bright former president would probably be considered a leftist by today's deranged Republican party of rabble-rousing misfits. Stephen Colbert, like many of us comedians at the time, took great pleasure in jostling George Bush over his failures in Iraq.

Although he has since dropped his more arcane Colbert Report far-right character after taking over hosting duties at the Late Show, Colbert is as political as ever. Having been said, Colbert mocked George W Bush, who gave a speech in Dallas on Wednesday for an event called “Elections – A More Perfect Union”, which focused on how elections work.

Sen. Ted Cruz

A group of lawyers has submitted a 15-page ethics complaint to the State Bar of Texas demanding an investigation of Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) for his “leading role” in the far-reaching Republican effort to keep former President Trump in power despite his reelection loss.

The complaint — filed by the 65 Project, an organization of lawyers seeking to hold attorneys accountable for lending a hand in pro-Trump efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 elections — called for an examination of Cruz’s conduct in the weeks before Election Day in 2020 and on January 6, 2021, the day of the Capitol insurrection.
