#EndorseThis: Colbert Says This Senator Embodies America's 'Idiot Control Problem'

Stephen Colbert called for "action" after another "unspeakably tragic" mass shooting took place in America-- the second in as many weeks. Ten people, including a police officer, died grocery shopping in Boulder, CO, and all Republicans had to offer was "thoughts and prayers."

For example, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) insists "America doesn't have a gun control problem, we have an "idiot control problem." Colbert could hardly disagree. "Oh, we definitely have an idiot control problem. It's people who don't recognize that this country has long had a gun problem, John Kennedy."

Much, much more -- so click and chortle.

#EndorseThis: Trevor Noah Rips DeSantis For Calling Florida A 'Freedom Oasis'

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has been getting a lot of unwarranted good press in the mainstream media for his handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. Yes, the same reckless governor who recently called his state a "freedom oasis," practically inviting rowdy spring breakers to clog the streets with no masks, has won praise from Fox News, CNN, and the New York Times.

But Trevor Noah isn't here for that nonsense. He reveals what's really happening in Florida, while hilariously mocking DeSantis.

Funny and true -- so click and enjoy!

#EndorseThis: Colbert Unleashes On 'Idiot' Mitch McConnell And Numbskull Rioters

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the Kentucky Republican known affectionately as Moscow Mitch, is clinging desperately to power. He's making threats about "scorched earth" if Democrats change Senate rules to get rid of the filibuster, long a favorite tool to frustrate progress.

McConnell's whining infuriated Stephen Colbert, who called him an "idiot" for not recognizing that the filibuster keeps the Senate from doing anything at all. Plus Stephen reviews the latest FBI busts of morons who invaded the Capitol and then posted incriminating photos of themselves on social media.

Passionate and hilarious. Just click and enjoy!

#EndorseThis: Kimmel Bites Trump Over Dog Charity Scandal

So Jimmy Kimmel obviously misses Donald Trump a lot and wanted to check in on the former president. What did he find? A tweeted photo that "makes him look like an old man with his belt pulled up to his nips" -- and a scheme to apparently loot a canine charity in cahoots with his daughter-in-law Lara, "she of the plumped lips."

Yes, the news over the past few days shows that Trump went after the doggy dough. Shocking? Not really, but Kimmel turns this shaggy do story into hilarity.

Enjoy!


#EndorseThis: Kimmel Says 'Convict Him!' -- And Hilariously Shows How

Donald Trump's second impeachment trial has been a whirlwind. Days full of damning evidence shown by impeachment managers, botched responses by the former president's defense team, and endless news coverage. Still, Trump is not likely to be convicted by the Senate after inciting his mob to violently storm the citadel of democracy.

Jimmy Kimmel understands it's a long shot, but the late night comic still sees the increasingly narrow road to conviction of Trump, keeping him from ever being able to hold public office again.

Click to see how Jimmy breaks it down -- which is of course punctuated by lots of laughs.

#EndorseThis: Colbert Spoofs Exiled Pence For 'Couch-Surfing' In Indiana

Former Vice President Mike Pence and his family have fallen on hard times. Reports say that Pence and wife Karen are "homeless" and "couch-surfing" back home in Indiana. And if that isn't bad enough for the former second family, some have speculated Pence is moving around so much "to avoid death threats or assassination attempts from supporters of his former boss," according to Yahoo News.

Yikes.

Naturally, Stephen Colbert couldn't help spoofing Pence on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. And it is a laugh riot with a surprise (but not surprising) kicker.

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Lampoons Bonehead Capitol Rioters

The FBI has now arrested at least 150 of the pro-Trump thugs who attacked one of the greatest symbols of democracy in America, so their would-be dictator could stay in office. According to CNN, the FBI has over 400 insurrectionists in its sights after receiving more than 200,000 digital media tips.

Do you know what's funny? Those morons "are incriminating themselves all over social media," as Jimmy Kimmel noted with a laugh on his late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live!

As dire and despicable at their Jan. 6 crimes were, this is indeed comical. Watch as Kimmel recounts hilarious examples of the clues left by Capitol rioters for law enforcement. It's almost as if they want to go to jail. Enjoy!

#EndorseThis: "Hello, Douchebags" Is How Bill Maher Greets Up-And-Coming Wing-Nuts

Bill Maher, host of Real Time on HBO, loves to say "farewell, douchebags" at the end of an election cycle.It's his traditional way of seeing off all the losing lunatics (otherwise generally known as Republicans). But the far right is producing these nut-jobs faster than ever.

So even as we're enjoying the exit of Rudy Giuliani, Mike Pence, and the orange man who shall not be named, there's a whole new crop of "douchebags" swarming over the capital -- and Maher feels he must introduce them to us, with appropriate burns.

You will recognize most of them. And you will laugh, uproariously.
