On Friday night, Stephen Colbert mocked the Trump family for their various failures in voting in the New York City mayoral election. According to a recent report from Newsweek, President Trump and several members of his family botched their absentee ballots in last month’s election. Trump himself reportedly got his own birth date wrong. “‘I can’t remember when I was born,” Colbert impersonated the president. “‘I demand that I release my long-form birth certificate. I think I was born in Kenya. That’s what I’m hearing. People are telling me. It’s got to be.'” The report notes that Trump was born on June 14, 1946, but he incorrectly put down July instead. “So he made himself a full month younger. Watch out, ladies!” Colbert joked. “Seriously, watch out. He’s a monster. Don’t go near him. He’ll grab you.” The Late Show host poked fun at First Lady Continue reading "Colbert Rips Trump For Botching Birth Date On Absentee Ballot: We Need a ‘Long-Form Birth Certificate’"
Mario Batali withdrew from his businesses earlier this week after it was reported that several women had come forward with sexual harassment allegations against him. As reported by Buzzfeed, the celebrity chef apologized for his behavior in his latest newsletter. “As many of you know, this week there has been some news coverage about some of my past behavior,” Batali began. “I have made myany mistakes and I am so very sorry that I have disappointed my friends, my family, my fans and my team. My behavior was wrong and there are no excess. I take full responsibility.” He promised to “work every day to regain your trust and respect.” But he wasn’t exactly finished… “p.s. in case you’re searching for a holiday-inspired breakfast, these Pizza Dough Cinnamon Rolls are a fan favor.” Um… what?!? Twitter feasted on this newsletter.
On Friday night, Laura Ingraham and conservative commentator Michelle Malkin slammed Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, for his handing of their ongoing Russia investigation. “If you’re dying to see California Congressman Adam Schiff, just turn on the television at any point in the day,” Ingraham began. “Any time. Any channel. Because the top ranking Dem on the House Intelligence Committee is the main proponent of the Russia collusion narrative.” The Fox News host then played a montage of various soundbytes Schiff gave throughout the year to the press about his committee’s investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. “Here’s the problem. He’s like a carnival barker but there’s nothing under the tent!” Ingraham reacted. “There’s not a shred of evidence backing up his accusations. But that doesn’t stop him from playing the mainstream media like a fiddle.” Continue reading "Michelle Malkin Mocks Adam Schiff On Collusion Narrative: He Has ‘Fired More Duds’ Than North Korea"
On Friday night, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared on The Ingraham Angle. Sanders was asked to react to recent attacks against her, especially from MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski, claiming the press secretary “never says anything that is truthful” and that she’s “helping damage this republic,” as well as––as Ingraham put it––the “crap” that she has to put up with in the White House briefing room. “Look, it helps that I have three toddlers at home, so I’m pretty good at having a lot of patience and sometimes deal with somethings you don’t want to deal with,” Sanders began. “This is a president that has been elected by the forgotten men and women of this country a lot of liberals have contempt for those people, whether they’re men, whether they’re women and they want to attack us.” The press secretary said that President Trump is focused on “getting things Continue reading "Sarah Huckabee Sanders Reacts to Mika Brzezinski’s Attacks: ‘I Think It’s Sad’"
On Thursday night, Trevor Noah addressed the controversial texts that were sent by top investigations in the Robert Mueller investigation. FBI investigator Peter Strzok was removed from the Russia probe by Mueller after it was discovered he sent anti-Trump texts during the election, calling him a “f**king idiot.” “Wow, an FBI agent was sending text messages in 2016 saying that Trump is an idiot… how did he know?” Noah asked. “What other secrets is the FBI hiding?!?” The Daily Show host said he was “disappointed” in Strzok, not because of his political bias but because he “wasn’t covering his tracks.” He gave pointers how to use “code,” which basically were a bunch of emojis. He read another text from Strzok, which invoked an “insurance policy” if Trump won the election. “Now, I don’t really know what that text means,” Noah admitted, “but it’s provocative and it gets Continue reading "Trevor Noah Mocks Fox News For Slamming ‘The System’ Amid Mueller Probe: I Agree, Black Lives Matter"
On Thursday night, Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell slammed Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for recent remarks he made about President Trump‘s outspokenness regarding the violence in his city. Caldwell, a Chicago native, began by telling Shannon Bream that he has not only is the subject “personal” to him but it’s “emotional” as well since his little brother survived a shooting while his best friend “died in his arms” earlier this year. “Over 600 people have been murdered in Chicago. 80% of those folks happen to be African-American and it’s really troubling that we have a mayor in Chicago who has demonstrated that black lives don’t matter to Rahm Emanuel, black votes matter to Rahm Emanuel,” Caldwell said. “I want that to be very clear. Black lives don’t matter to Rahm Emanuel, black votes matter to Rahm Emanuel.” He blasted the mayor for withholding the Laquan McDonald tape Continue reading "Fox News Analyst Rips Mayor Emanuel: While He Makes Jokes, ‘Black Bodies Are Being Littered’ in Chicago"
On Thursday night, Seth Meyers had some fun at the expense of Omarosa Manigault. Yesterday, news broke that the former Apprentice star and longtime Donald Trump ally will be leaving her role at the White House. She reportedly “blew up” and was physically removed from the premises. Meyers mocked that no one knew exactly what she did on behalf of the Trump administration, except for when she held a wedding photo shoot with her 39-person bridal party. Omarosa appeared on Good Morning America Thursday morning to refute the reports that she was fired and that she was escorted out of the White House. She told Michael Strahan that she and Gen. John Kelly had a conversation in the Situation Room. “Wow, the Situation Room,” Meyers reacted, “though I have a feeling any room Omarosa walks into becomes the Situation Room. Seriously, you know it’s bad when they have to fire Continue reading "Seth Meyers Mocks Omarosa’s Firing: Any Room She Walks Into Becomes The Situation Room"
