‘Donald Trump’ Gets Trevor Noah To Admit The ‘Daily Show’ Is Fake News

Trevor Noah completely trashed Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office on Monday, so when the “Daily Show” host went after Trump again on Tuesday ― this time targeting his ever-changing plans for a border wall ― the “president” decided to talk to Noah himself.
“I don’t know why Trump and his people don’t just lose the whole wall idea,” Noah said. “Just admit that the whole thing is ridiculous and move on. At the end of 100 days the president should be talking about his legislation not his stupid wall.”
That’s when President Trump, as portrayed by comedy writer Anthony Atamanuik, interrupted the show. POTUS’ arrival elicited both cheers and moans from the crowd, and Trump was as pompous and orange as ever.

Trump confronted Noah for saying “some very not nice things about me,” before hurling his signature insult at the late-night TV host.
“This Continue reading "‘Donald Trump’ Gets Trevor Noah To Admit The ‘Daily Show’ Is Fake News"

Bill Nye Slams CNN For Putting Climate Change Skeptic On Earth Day Panel

Bill Nye will gladly talk to the media about climate change, but he has no time for climate change skeptics. 
The celebrity scientist slammed CNN’s “New Day” on Saturday for including William Happer ― a physicist who thinks carbon pollution is a myth and once compared carbon dioxide to the suffering of Jewish people during the Holocaust ― in an Earth Day panel on the March for Science protests.
When asked about Happer’s skepticism, Nye answered by providing Happer with a few facts about the rising rates of atmospheric CO2, but not before scolding the hosts for doing a “disservice” to their viewers.
“I will say, as much as I love the CNN, you’re doing a disservice by having one climate change skeptic, and not 97 or 98 scientists or engineers concerned about climate change,” Nye said, referring to the widespread consensus among scientists that climate change is real Continue reading "Bill Nye Slams CNN For Putting Climate Change Skeptic On Earth Day Panel"

Trevor Noah Gives Bill O’Reilly The Send-Off He Deserves

Fox News probably won’t be giving Bill O’Reilly a proper farewell, considering the damning sexual harassment allegations that have led to his dismissal on Wednesday.  
So the “Daily Show” decided to do it for them.
“You may not know this but Bill O’Reilly was the biggest figure in the history of cable news,” Trevor Noah said during Wednesday night’s episode. “At one point, no one even came close, because they were afraid that he might sexually harass them.”
To honor the scorned political commentator, Noah went over O’Reilly’s greatest hits, which included 20 years of O’Reilly’s rants about the “war on Christmas” and the “war on white Christian men,” and, of course, the TV host’s belligerent racism that was often directed at black men.
“Looking back on O’Reilly’s greatest hits, the one thing that’s hard to believe was that it took this long for him to Continue reading "Trevor Noah Gives Bill O’Reilly The Send-Off He Deserves"

UC Berkeley Postpones Ann Coulter’s Lecture Amid Fears Of Violence

Officials at the University of California, Berkeley, have postponed Ann Coulter’s scheduled lecture on immigration at its campus over safety concerns and fear that the event could spark violent protests.
Dan Mogulof, a university spokesman, told The Huffington Post that police learned that groups responsible for the recent violent demonstrations on campus and in the city of Berkeley planned to target Coulter’s event, initially scheduled for April 27.
After news of the event’s cancellation spread, Coulter maintained that she would make an appearance at Berkeley next week to deliver her speech.

The announcement came less than a week after fighting broke out between supporters and opponents of President Donald Trump during a “Patriots Day” free speech rally at a park in the city of Berkeley. Continue reading "UC Berkeley Postpones Ann Coulter’s Lecture Amid Fears Of Violence"

Trevor Noah Explains Why Alex Jones’ ‘Performance’ Should Terrify You

Trevor Noah learned in America that if you really want to get to know someone, take that person to court. That’s where a person’s identity unravels, the “Daily Show” host explained, as was the case for Hulk Hokan, who argued in court that he doesn’t actually have a 10-inch penis, and Fifty Cent, who had to admit that he isn’t really a millionaire.
But Alex Jones’ court-revealed identity may be the most dangerous one of all, Noah explained on Tuesday’s episode of the “Daily Show.
To recap: Jones, a conspiracy theorist and InfoWars host, recently argued in court that he’s not actually a crazy person like his show may suggest ― he’s just a “performance artist” who’s playing a deranged man on air.
Noah didn’t take issue with people who fake their personas, but he did have a problem with their influence on their fans.
He discussed further: “The Continue reading "Trevor Noah Explains Why Alex Jones’ ‘Performance’ Should Terrify You"

Finally, A Definition Of ‘Complicit’ Ivanka Trump Can Agree With

Ivanka Trump let America know Wednesday that she doesn’t know what it means to be complicit, so parody master Randy Rainbow gave her a definition.
“I Googled it this morning,” Rainbow told the first daughter during his spoof version of Trump’s “CBS This Morning” interview. “Apparently it means really smart and pretty with a rocking bod!”
But he didn’t just wade into shallow topics during his parody interview. 
The YouTube star asked Ivanka Trump all the questions we wish host Gayle King had, but with extra sass. Questions included, “What made you decide to now take on an official role in the White House, and who the fuck authorized that?”
Rainbow also pushed the first daughter on issues everyone’s dying to know: Where does Ivanka Trump stand on gay advocacy or women’s reproductive rights? And, “why can’t she get her father to wear makeup that better matches his natural Continue reading "Finally, A Definition Of ‘Complicit’ Ivanka Trump Can Agree With"

White House Staff Drops Out Of Correspondents’ Dinner In ‘Solidarity’ With Trump

There will be no White House staffers attending next month’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, according to a statement from Jeff Mason, president of the White House Correspondents’ Association.
White House officials told the WHCA on Tuesday evening that they will skip the annual dinner as an act of “solidarity” with President Donald Trump, who had announced in February that he would not attend the dinner.
“The WHCA board regrets this decision very much,” Mason said in the statement. “We have worked hard to build a constructive relationship with the Trump White House and believe strongly that this goal is possible even with the natural tension between the press and administrations that is a hallmark of a healthy republic.”

Trump and his staffers’ decision to Continue reading "White House Staff Drops Out Of Correspondents’ Dinner In ‘Solidarity’ With Trump"
