On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough and David Ignatius praised President Trump's decision to walk away from the Hanoi summit with Kim Jong Un of North Korea. Scarborough calls it the "best of all circumstances." Ignatius agreed, quoting Trump that "sometimes you just have to walk." Also, Joyce Vance a former US Attorney appointed by President Obama says that in Michael Cohen's congressional testimony, there was "certainly nothing that was new to prosecutors." And finally, some unintentional humor, as Donny Deutsch describes himself as a "stench" defender of Cohen.
If ever there were a famous Virginian, it is George Washington. Born and raised in Virginia, Mount Vernon was of course his historic home. Yet somehow, a confused Tur has claimed that Washington was a "native son of New York." The unbelievable gaffe occurred today on MSNBC, as Tur handed off her MTP Daily hour to Ari Melber and his The Beat.
Socialists like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aren't big on math. It just gets in the way of setting utopian, unachievable goals. Take Sanders today. At the very beginning of his formal announcement video, he set this goal: "an unprecedented, grassroots campaign of one million active volunteers in every state in our country." Um, just a little problem there, Bernie. The population of your own state of Vermont is only 627,000. How can you possibly not know that? And there are five other states with populations under one million. So, yeah, it would be "unprecedented" indeed if in several states Bernie could round up more volunteers than the total of every man, woman, and child living there!
Yesterday it was discovered that a fake news edition of the Washington Post had been printed and was being distributed around the city. But that came from a bunch of left-wingers who think the Post is too wishy-washy about forcing Trump to resign or be impeached. Today we at NewsBusters thought it would be amusing to try this experiment from the conservative view, instead of the radical left.
Call it the meme that was born almost simultaneously among many who viewed the livestream by Beto O'Rourke of his visit to a dental office where he got his teeth cleaned. And that mocking meme, even from many liberals, was "colonoscopy." Yes, that is what the way too intimate view of Beto's orifice inspired in terms of the meme about the other orifice at his opposite end.
It was a little shocking to peruse humorist Dave Barry's comedic "Year in Review 2018" as the cover story of Sunday's Washington Post Magazine. The paper may have been a little sickened by just how much Dave Barry mocked the media's obsession over Russia and the 2016 election, and their thumping tubs for impeachment. There was a lot of the usual Trump mockery (and some Fox News-as-Trump's-servant mockery), but there were a lot of liberal-media jokes in there as well.
NBC's Saturday Night Live is taking on a very sour look. It mocked its own Trump impersonator Alec Baldwin after he reportedly punched a man in the face in a parking-spot dispute. It mocked Fox News for faking news about the "caravan" after NBC aired fake news about Brett Kavanaugh raping women. And Pete Davidson mocked the looks of an Afghanistan war hero who lost an eye in a terrorist blast.
South Park once again opened up their latest season by intentionally embroiling themselves in controversy over a touchy subject. Forget about depicting the Prophet Mohammed, the Comedy Central show's 22nd season began on Wednesday with 5 school shootings, all met with little reaction from the townsfolk.
In another blatant display of just how out of touch the liberal media has become since the election of President Trump, on Monday's Morning Joe, MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski took turns laughing at the incredible economic progress that has been made under Donald Trump.
The August issue of the women's magazine Glamour is the Comedy Issue, so they rounded up female comedy writers for all the liberal late-night shows to address diversity in the writers' room and how feminism pervades the late-night scene. Molly McNearney, Jimmy Kimmel's wife and head writer, unleashed the "WTF" on the idea of Hillary pantsuit jokes during the campaign. But feminists are fine with mocking Melania and Ivanka Trump.
SCTV from Canada was perhaps the funniest television show ever to be aired. Sadly in these times of SJW snowflakes, such a show probably would not be tolerated.
Comedy Central’s lame replacement for the Colbert Report, The Opposition with Jordan Klepper, is even worse than Colbert at disguising their liberal agitprop as hiding behind a mask of idiotic conservatism. On Tuesday night, Klepper brought on his cast mates Josh Sharp and Aaron Jackson, pitched on screen as "Authors of F**k the Poor: A Conservative Guide to Comedy.”
