South Park's newest episode, "Let Them Eat Goo" which aired Wednesday mocks LeBron James and his lack of defense of free speech in the current crisis of Hong Kong against China. The episode concentrates on diets and plant-based foods, and on the students at South Park's public school who are protesting the unhealthy food they are being fed, especially meat from animals.
On Wednesday’s edition of The Daily Show, correspondent Roy Wood Jr. interviewed President Trump’s primary challenger, Bill Weld, and convened “a focus group of Trump voters to see if there really are Republicans thirsty for something new.” While the panel definitely had some misgivings about the President, all of them indicated that they would support him again in 2020; much to Wood’s horror.
Unlike some other businesses and corporations, South Park and Comedy Central aren't afraid of offending Communist China. In fact, they doubled down in Wednesday night's episode "SHOTS!!!" by having a major character shout, "[Bleep] the Chinese government!"
The South Park episode "Band in China" that aired Wednesday night exposed the brutalities and human rights abuses of the Communist government and we're feeling pretty good about it. The episode slammed the entertainment industry for allowing Communist China to censor content produced in the United States.
On Tuesday’s Daily Show, host Trevor Noah brought in correspondent Michael Kosta to weigh in on President Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian President and subsequent impeachment inquiry. Kosta sarcastically attempted to defend President Trump’s behavior by saying he does not know right from wrong due to his “moral blindness.”
The new season of South Park got back to its libertarian roots in ways many conservatives might not appreciate. One side plot of Wednesday night's episode "Mexican Joker" dealt with marijuana and regulation reform, but the main storyline was based around illegal immigrant children being placed in detention centers.
While the news media spent all of Monday hyping the latest smear from Democrats against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, comedian Trevor Noah continued the trend into late night. The Daily Show host mocked the conservative justice as a drunk exhibitionist who was constantly “whipping his di** out” and even compared him to accused sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein.
On CNN Newsroom Thursday, anti-gun host Brooke Baldwin touted Uruguay and Venezuela posting travel warnings to their citizens after the two recent mass shootings, warning about Americans "indiscriminate possession of firearms." Towards the end of the 2pm hour, she brought on an liberal comedian, Arturo Castro, to explain to the CNN audience how absurd it is that Americans have access to guns.
Leave no tragedy unexploited. That’s been the response by many in the liberal media after this weekend’s mass shootings. This ugly idea escalated on Wednesday as the official Twitter account of Trevor Noah’s Daily Show smeared Fox News, calling it the “audiobook” of the Texas murderer: As noted by the Daily Caller, the Comedy Central video montage then took examples of Fox News personalities sounding the alarm on illegal immigration and linked it to the manifesto of a man who murdered 22 people and injured 24.
Straight off the heels of night two, round two of the Democratic presidential primary debates, Daily Show host Trevor Noah offered his insights live with MSNBC political analyst and former Obama pollster, Cornell Belcher. Towards the end of the discussion, Belcher took the opportunity to scrutinize CNN for their somewhat incendiary debate format: "I don't want to beat up on CNN, but I'm going to beat up on CNN a little bit. The way they set it up, they almost set it up so there would be contention....I don't think that was particularly helpful and I certainly hope we won't see that again."
If you gave up watching late-night talk shows because you grew weary of the constant and harsh criticism those programs deliver about President Trump on a regular basis, here is some news that just might bring you back to cable TV. Comedian and sitcom actor David Spade is joining the battle for weeknight viewers with a new program entitled Lights Out beginning Monday night on Comedy Central in which he and his guests will “focus more on cultural events and some Hollywood stuff, weird stories in the news” and far less on the Republican occupant of the White House.
Actress Nancy Lee Grahn used some stealth editing to attack the Trump administration this week. The General Hospital star shared the following Tweet showing troubling conditions faced by young illegal immigrants on the U.S. side of the southern border. Her cry, coupled with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dubbing the centers “concentration camps,” brought the issue to the media’s attention.
