There’s no two ways about it: Robert Mueller is a heartbreaker. He led the Democrats, the media and Hollywood on for two years, loving them and leaving them with “No Collusion.” To Hollywood lefties, there’s nothing for it but sobbing into a pint of Haagen-Daaz. Hopefully, it’s Chocolate Chip Crow flavored.
Apparently getting arrested is the cool thing to do. Late Late Show host James Corden on Tuesday interviewed actress Piper Perabo and prompted the Coyote Ugly star to brag about protesting Brett Kavanaugh. After gushing about how “exciting” it was, Perabo proclaimed, “And I feel that this president is an unindicted co-conspirator in a felony investigation and he shouldn't be allowed to appoint justices until that matter is cleared up. You shouldn't be allowed to pick your own judges.”
On Wednesday, a Global Opinions Editor at the Washington Post praised the work of Christopher Steele as "extraordinarily prescient," created by a man who "had stumbled onto a breathtaking threat to U.S. national security." Accordingly, Steele, per the headline at Christian Caryl's opinion piece, "is a hero – and Americans owe him their thanks" — a Four-Pinocchio claim by the Post's own standards.
How political were the 60th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday night? According to host James Corden, the music audience's response to Hillary Clinton "might have been the biggest cheer of the night."
The entertainment world has readied the battlefield for the resistance with scripted and unscripted shows.
Democratic congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (CA) appeared on CBS’s The Late Late Show Wednesday evening, where host James Corden took Pelosi to a British pub for his “Pub Politics” segment to drink beer and discuss politics. Corden encouraged the Democratic leader to share insider details about the Mueller-Russia investigation and what it was like working with Republicans. At one point, Corden tried to get Pelosi to “say something nice” about various Republicans, but was seemingly only using the opportunity to mock the GOP himself.
The Washington Free Beacon watched so the rest of us didn’t have to. Ace reporter Conor Beck got the goods, and headlined them thusly: “Late-Night Comedy Shows Ignore Harvey Weinstein Sexual Harassment Allegations
Hosts pounced on similar allegations against Bill O'Reilly, Roger Ailes.” Here at NewsBusters Scott Whitlock was on the case as well, headlining: “Not Speaking Truth to Power: ‘Brave’ Late Night Hosts Skip Weinstein Sex Scandal.”
Thursday night, late night comedians on CBS took special aim at former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, in preparation for his interview airing Sunday on the same network with anchor Charlie Rose. This will be his first televised interview since leaving the White House, and in it, the Catholic Bannon admits that he disagrees with the Catholic Church on DACA. While late night comics have never had an interest in defending the Catholic Church, (in fact, quite the opposite,) because the criticism was coming from Bannon, both CBS late night shows decided to attack him for it.
Reacting to the Trump administration's rescinding of DACA and President Donald Trump's reaction to Hurricane Harvey, several late night comedians on Tuesday smeared President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, making references to evil characters like Dracula, Adolf Hitler and Freddy Krueger. James Corden also invoked "white supremacy" in reference to ending DACA.
Al Gore is still making his rounds on the late night shows to promote his new climate change movie, An Inconvenient Sequel, but all the media wants to talk to him about is Donald Trump. He appeared on James Corden’s The Late Late Show early Thursday morning, where Corden tried to bait Gore into bashing Trump. This came after Corden did an anti-Trump musical number, bashing the president for the transgender military ban.
Now that he’s is the official Republican nominee, the Trump bashing is soaring to new heights. On Wednesday night’s episode of The Late Late Show, host James Corden teamed up with comedian Denis Leary to sing a new song: “Trump’s An A*sshole.”
