#EndorseThis: Laughing At The Horses' Asses In Trump's White House

The Late Show now features a series called "Tuning Out The News" – short animations that combine cartoon "news" characters and real live human beings, addressing the issues of our day. Or simply lampooning any convenient knuckleheads.

In this very brief but hilarious 'toon, the whimsical conceit is that the abject butt-kissing by Trump's servile staff might induce a horse to sing. If you've ever watched that kind of pathetic spectacle -- reproduced on Tuesday by the White House Domestic Policy Council -- this clip will look familiar. (Don't miss Brooke Rollins, who runs domestic policy, sucking up to "arguably the most successful businessman in our country's history.") And it will make you whinny with laughter.

#EndorseThis: Greed And Hypocrisy As Trump Cronies Glom PPP Loans

You may recall how the Treasury Department and the Trump White House strenuously opposed any oversight of the hundreds of billions of dollars distributed by the PPP loan program. "I'll be the oversight," barked Trump. And now we know why: His friends, family, and political cronies have bellied up to federal cash box, grabbing with both hands.

In just 90 seconds, the liberal SuperPAC #MeidasTouch delivers a sharp summary of several egregious "borrowers" in a new ad titled "Leave Me A Loan." The offenders range from Jared Kushner to Kanye West and include that lifelong anti-government crusader, Grover Norquist. (Grover no longer wants to drown big government in a bathtub. He just wants to drown his principles in million-dollar hand-outs.)

Yes, businesses owned by Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Rep. Devin Nunes are among the connected outfits that got some easy loan action too. Meanwhile, deserving small businesses were left to go under.

Which stinks worse, the hypocrisy or the greed? We report, you decide.


#EndorseThis: Randy Rainbow Devastates A "Poor Deplorable Troll"

Randy Rainbow is well and truly over Donald Trump. The gloves are off, the knives are in, and Randy's tuneful mock "interview" with the president is perhaps the harshest in the Rainbow parody catalog. Which is saying something.

Lifting music from The Little Mermaid's "villain" tune, its title is "Poor Deplorable Troll." And the lyrics are simply lethal:

The President says cut out all the testing

A notion health officials find bizarre

But see he's terribly annoyed

By all the dead and unemployed

Because he only cares about his own PR

To watch Randy, in trademark pink glasses, as he mercilessly grills Trump is just delightful – one of the few pleasures afforded us by this nightmare presidency.

#EndorseThis: Sarah Cooper Models Trump's 'Lone Ranger' Look

Sarah Cooper is at the peak of creativity these days – and now she has issued another TikTok Trump parody titled "How to mask." In a moment of masking revisionism, the president insisted that he has "no problem" with Americans protecting themselves against coronavirus with masks.

Not that Trump would do anything to promote face masks, of course, after he, his White House entourage, and their millions of numbskull followers have spent months stigmatizing them. But more recently he claimed, not very convincingly, that he donned a mask and even liked it.

That black mask, he chuckled, "looked like the Lone Ranger," an allusion to the old radio and TV hero who wore a mask over his eyes (not his nose and mouth).

It's a lot funnier when Sarah does it.

Trump is a worthless president but a priceless buffoon.
