#EndorseThis: Bette Midler's New Parody Nukes GOP 'Liars-Thugs-And-Traitors'

The legendary Bette Midler is channeling her inner Mary Poppins in GOP's-A-Cult-For-Scammers-Liars-Thugs-And-Traitors-- a song parody of the Mary Poppins classic Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

The great chanteuse -- in association with MeidasTouch-- lets no prominent Republican escape her wrath, relentlessly roasting "Moscow Mitch, Cancun Ted, and all their imitators." And don't forget Matt Gaetz, "the Norman Bates of Liars-Thugs-And-Traitors."

To Bette, there are two bad words: "Tucker" and "Carlson."

Enjoy this blistering masterpiece. Just click!

#EndorseThis: Full-Sized Mitch McConnell Puppet Gets Bombarded With 73 Questions

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) robotic demeanor and emotionless tone often makes us wonder: "Is he actually a human being or an automaton?"

Though the jury is still out on that burning question, one thing is for sure: legendary comedy writer Robert Smigel's full-sized puppet is much more lifelike.

The hilarious sketch -- a parody of Vogue's 73 questions -- is a part of a new series of Fox specials called Let's Be Real.

McConnell may be fake but the laughs are real. Just click!

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Roasts Tucker Carlson Crispy For His 'Villain' Laugh

We've all wondered whether Fox News Channel's resident white supremacist Tucker Carlson is actually a human being, but the fascistic host's "villain" laugh is really troubling Jimmy Kimmel.

"What the hell was that?" asked Kimmel about the Carlson laugh (at about 7:30). "It's like there's a little girl trapped in his head, right? He laughs like the villain in the movie who realizes James Bond just put the bomb back on him and he's about to explode."

Then Kimmel played the video again. "What human makes a sound like that?"

The answer: They don't. Jimmy has funny news about the MyPillow guy and a Chris Christie snap, too. Click and cackle!

#EndorseThis: Will Conspiracy-Crazed Wingnuts Resist Mike Lindell's MyVaccine?

Conservatives are avoiding the Covid-19 vaccine like they should be avoiding the virus itself. According to Civiqs, 41 percent of Republicans say they would definitely not accept a coronavirus vaccine, as doses pile up in red states.

Thankfully, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah has a creative solution: Bring in far-right loony and 2020 election conspiracist Mike Lindell (played by Michael Kosta, but don't tell the Republicans).

Packaged like a MyPillow ad, with a special offer of a second dose 21 to 28 days later, how could even the mosts conspiracy-addled Republicans pass it up? Click and chortle.
