On his weekly HBO show Last Week Tonight, John Oliver took a shot at Meghan McCain, now the outspoken conservative on ABC's The View. It came as Oliver discussed the Eurovision song contest, which included a kooky anti-capitalist sado-masochist rock band from Iceland called Hatari, and one member (shown in bondage gear) was the son of Iceland's ambassador to England. Oliver joked: "You may be thinking that’s the most embarrassing child of a prominent political figure you’ve ever seen, but let me remind you of the continued existence of Meghan McCain!"
On Friday’s edition of Real Time, host Bill Maher devoted part of his closing monologue to trashing Attorney General Bill Barr. While the attack on Barr was probably expected, few could have predicted that the HBO host would use Barr as a pretense to tear into his religion, which Maher referred to as the “cult” of Catholicism.
Just two and a half years after fantasizing about a retroactive abortion for then-Vice Presidential nominee Mike Pence, author Fran Lebowitz offered up more outrageous commentary on Friday’s edition of Real Time. This time, Lebowitz shared her desire that the Saudis murder President Trump.
The Sunday edition of HBO’s Last Week Tonight With John Oliver focused heavily on climate change, so it featured an appearance from Bill Nye the Science Guy, who had some harsh words for conservatives skeptical of the Green New Deal throughout the episode, concluding with a profanity-laced rant aimed at critics of the Green New Deal.
The series of Veep arrived on Sunday. In the episode titled “Veep”, presidential candidate Selina Meyer finds herself at a brokered convention in Charlotte, North Carolina with no clear candidate choice in sight. Along the way, she unintentionally finds an issue with which to pander for delegate votes.
On Real Time Friday, host Bill Maher closed his satirical segment “New Rules” by urging First Lady Melania Trump to dump the President, arguing that her doing so would enable President Trump to “implode on his own.” Maher also encouraged Rupert Murdoch’s wife, Jerry Hall, to do the same before describing Fox News as an “axis of evil” and comparing the Trump base to “an army of brain-dead zombies.”
April has come and gone with no shortage of absolute hatred and contempt from media progressives. Entertainment programming from major networks, cable TV and popular streaming services have delivered another 40 deranged anti-Trump/conservative scenes for impressionable viewers, providing God-fearing viewers another valid reason to grab those torches and pitchforks. Much of this month’s material is simply monstrous.
Who said lefties don’t have a sense of humor? Well, no one really ever had to say it, because it’s painfully obvious that none of these folks can take a joke, especially about their precious and “totally misunderstood” socialism. In response to the Daily Wire posting a Game of Thrones meme lampooning the economic system beloved by progressives, Thrones actor and apparent left wing nut Miltos Yerolemou had a mini meltdown on social media.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal comedian Bill Maher was showing his unpatriotic side as he not only declared that the military budget should be cut in half, but he also griped about the tradition of playing God Bless America at sporting events that began after the 9/11 attacks.
Two staunch gun control advocates, HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel and Dick's Sporting Goods, got locked and loaded together for an assault on the Second Amendment last week. Real Sports reporter David Scott interviewed gun restrictions advocate Ed Stack, the CEO at Dick's Sporting Goods, to talk about why his business has discontinued sales of AR-15s.
An interview with Bob Costas on Friday’s edition of Real Time started out about sports but not surprisingly, it did not take long for the discussion to turn political. At first, the conversation focused on Colin Kaepernick, with Costas and host Bill Maher speaking favorably about the controversial former quarterback. Eventually, the conversation turned to political correctness; with the majority of the panel taking the view that an obsession with judging historical figures by today’s standards leads to a slippery slope.
During the final portion of his satirical segment “New Rules,” Real Time host Bill Maher tore into Special Counsel Robert Mueller for not recommending an indictment against President Trump and slammed his investigation as “one feckless punt after another.” As Maher rolled out his final “new rule,” a chyron with the phrase “Bob Cost Us” appeared at the bottom of the screen; a play on the names of one of his guests for the evening, former NBC sportscaster Bob Costas.
