Video: Stephen Colbert’s Hilarious Take-Apart of Trump’s First 100 Days

‘Face the Nation’s’ ‘John Dickerson had the willpower to ignore the President’s insults during their conversation in the White House. Luckily, Stephen doesn’t have that same constraint.

re: #225 makeitstop

One encouraging sign I’m seeing this week is a real uptick in quotes questioning Trump’s mental state.

We should feed that talking point by any means necessary. Now that Squint and the Meat Puppet have openly talked about it and it’s being mentioned on sites like Politico, it’s a point that could peel back even more of Man-Baby’s already-thin support.

I’ve noticed the same. I’ve got a sneaking suspicion the media held off for the first hundred days milestone (or as much as they could with the madness), just to be “fair”. Since Saturday the optics and tone seem to have a shift to the incredulous. CNN especially seem to decided on sniggering at the madness. Quite clever, rather than fire and brimstone as they seem to be pushing his buttons quietly.

On Monday night, Colgate University officials warned that there was an armed person on campus and advised people to find a safe place. For several hours, the campus remained locked down.

Everyone was safe. There was no gunman, police later determined. But many students were angry when they learned the reason for the alarm: Someone called Colgate’s Campus Safety when they saw a black student who had a glue gun that he was using for a school project.

The incident reignited a debate over race at the private liberal-arts college in New York.

In an email to the campus community Tuesday morning, school officials wrote: “The events of last night have been deeply distressing to the community.” After the lockdown, they wrote, “At a large gathering at the chapel, which did not conclude until after 2 a.m., many students expressed their profound dismay that a student of color engaged in academic activity could be identified as a threat to the campus.”

Republicans never seem to grasp how insulting and racist it is to tell black people that they’re too stupid to see that Democrats have bought them off with free stuff (that anyone can get regardless of race, and that most of them don’t ever use) because they’re such greedy, lazy children.

In the last thread Anymouse had commented in regards to The Wall:

And that is really the only infrastructure project Mr. Trump cares about. Not highways or schools or water systems.

I get the feeling somewhere along the line Trump asked about the Great Wall of Chynah and someone said it was built starting as far back as 700 BC and still stands today.

And that thought stuck with him and he thinks a Great Wall of America built by Trump will get him that lasting recognition for as long a period of time.

It isn’t a wall. It is a monument to Trump.

According to the witness, the guy in the red shirt was calm and cool while boarding and asked the guy behind him (in the black shirt) “where are you from”?. Then he said, “I’m going to kill you”. I’m willing to bet Mr. Rage Red Shirt was highly intoxicated.

Late night “funny” man Jimmy Kimmel delivered a heart-wrenching monologue Monday night that every mother and every father could relate to.

That’s some top notch writing there. First class.

By line has the date of Tuesday.

First sentence says “last night” which going by the byline means Monday night.

Then Charles “Makes Me Brain” Hurt proceeds to write “delivered a heart-wrenching monologue Monday night.”

Our PBS station will be starting a little series entitled “Victorian Slum House” tonight.

Modern-day people move into an 1860s-era London tenement, where their living quarters consist of sparse rooms, a shared water pump, and outhouses, and where they must make a living by making matchboxes, turning wood and trading rags.

I believe they meant “trading in rags” rather than “trading rags,” but I think this may offer some handy tips for surviving in a Trumpian economy.

From what I observe they like to say “I don’t have a problem with it, I just wish you wouldn’t rub it in my face.” Why shouldn’t gay couples be able to hold hands without someone pissing and moaning about it? They have every right to show affection the same way heterosexual ones do.

From what I observe they like to say “I don’t have a problem with it, I just wish you wouldn’t rub it in my face.” Why shouldn’t gay couples be able to hold hands without someone pissing and moaning about it? They have every right to show affection the same way heterosexual ones do.

Years ago, shortly after moving out here, the Not-Yet-Mrs. FBW and I went to a movie a the Castro Theater, the heart of the Castro District. Afterwards, we went to a local cafe for dessert. At a nearby booth, there was a pair of guys, leaning on each other affectionately, occasionally smooching. They looked happy together. It was probably my first exposure to homosexual behavior.

I found the PDAs to be as annoying, but no more so, than heterosexual PDAs.

To this day, I don’t understand what the fuss is about.

Washington Post - All of Hillary Clinton’s ‘but for’ excuses

Hillary Clinton is taking all kinds of grief for saying she takes responsibility for the lost campaign but:

I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28th and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off.

Critics on Twitter and elsewhere fussed that you cannot really be taking responsibility for the loss if you are saying you would have won but for FBI Director James B. Comey’s interference in the election.

The critics miss the obvious point: Clinton can take responsibility for losing while still attributing blame to Comey. “I should have run a much better campaign so that it never would have been close.” If that is what she meant, she is probably right.

When you lose by 78,000 votes — or less than 1,000 in Florida as Al Gore did — everything is a “but for” cause of defeat, as Ron Klain (who was closely involved in multiple tight, losing campaigns) likes to say. So here goes, one more time:

Our PBS station will be starting a little series entitled “Victorian Slum House” tonight.

I believe they meant “trading in rags” rather than “trading rags,” but I think this may offer some handy tips for surviving in a Trumpian economy.

are they gonna put 20 people in each room, and have fathers fucking their daughters when they aren’t busy pimping their wives out? That’s basically London through the first world war. Jack London writes in People of the Abyss about walking along with a couple of blokes who were also down and out, and how the one kept picking up stuff off the sidewalk. London finally realized to his horror that the guy was picking up little bits of garbage, like rotting bits of oranges, and eating them, because basically everybody who was down and out was fucking starving. The other thing that made it all surreal was that like many big cities, London had a policy of not allowing vagrants to sleep in public spaces at night, which meant that everyone who couldn’t find a salvation army bed literally spent the entire freaking night walking the streets. Then, they would collapse during daylight hours when apparently it was okay to sleep in public areas. And the then the idle rich and the folks with jobs could walk by and tut-tut about how the lazy scum was down and out because they were too idle to get off their asses in the daytime and look for work.

The funny thing about privilege, oftentimes, is that you don’t know you’re experiencing it until it is pointed out, or the roles are reversed. The little things, like having a picture of your significant other at your desk at work, or wearing a wedding band, or holding hands as you walk through the mall… a lot of straight people don’t realize that there are a hundred things they do on the regular that if a gay couple were to do, they would find offensive. I’ve been lucky enough, I suppose, to have friends who could call me out on my privilege.

Then again, I am in something of a weird spot, I typically identify more with my Cuban heritage than my gringo heritage, but I have a very “white” name (seriously, both my first and last name can be traced back to the British isles) and “pass” as white. Took me a while to realize I was benefiting from white privilege in typically subtle ways.

Looking up my Dad’s ancestors in Pittsburgh was enlightening. Turns out the George Smiths were pretty much middle class going back to at least 1850. Less true of my Great Grandmother. In the 1870 Census, she and her family were in the Allegheny County Home. She and her siblings show up on one page, but her Mom and Dad showed up on other pages (and that was tough, because the parents must have been illiterate - I only found their names phonetically)

Interestingly, that family - the Dignals (also seen it as Degnan, Dignol, Dagnal, and, most peculiarly Buignal) all died pretty young - like 50s and 60s.

The Smiths lived into their 80s. Benefits of growing up not dirt poor in the mid 19th Century?

My fear is that by 2020, Bernie Bros will continue to be a huge problem for Democrats and may cost us that election. They seem determined to make Democrats the enemy and don’t appear to care about what Trump is doing to this country. Democrats are going to have to find a way to neutralize them.

The UK has an election coming in five weeks, and the Labour Party is led by Bernie’s transatlantic equivalent in Jeremy Corbyn. Not coincidentally, they’re currently headed for the most one-sided beating in 80 years, worse than the Thatcher vs. Foot election of 1983 or Tony Blair hammering John Major in 1997. That’s our future if Sandbaggers take over the Democratic Party.

Yeah. This.

It’s why manufacturing leaving big, rust belt cities, leaving working class blacks stranded was no big deal, but small manufacturing leaving small rust belt cities and towns is apocalyptic.

It’s why during the crack epidemic, we passed mandatory minimum sentences that locked up millions of nonviolent black offenders, but during the opioid epidemic we run heartwrenching tearjerkers about white working class folks losing hope.
