Onion mocks: ‘Victim in fatal car accident tragically not Glenn Beck’

Published

on

Even Fox pundit Glenn Beck will probably laugh at this one.

A satiric Onion News Network video reports on “a grisly death that only TV host Glenn Beck could deserve.”

An honor student, who the fake news broadcast repeatedly refers to as “not Glenn Beck,” was said to have been the victim in a fatal car accident.

“I heard screaming and I thought it was just someone doing an accurate impression of Glenn Beck normally,” a purported witness claims.

The alleged victim “loved to dance and hated Glenn Beck,” the video claims. A graphic on screen adds, “Family: Victim gone too soon; Glenn Beck should have died 45 years ago.”

Beck has laughed off countless mock assaults by Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert, and his website even links to some of the videos.

His own site describes one such video in a self-mocking manner: “Colbert is at it again – having a laugh at Glenn’s expense is something the self-deprecating, pasty white, chubby, girlie man is quite used to at this point in life. Glenn’s own staff has been poking fun at his penchant for crying for years and years, so this is not groundbreaking material but overall a funny segment from the mock conservative.”

But a post on the conservative Big Hollywood website, run by Drudge ally Andrew Breitbart, finds no humor in the Onion video.

If “The Onion” is so desperate to be liked by the establishment, why not just send certificates for free ice cream, or something?

The irony here is that Glenn Beck is everything the “Onion” thinks they are: funny, cutting edge, unafraid, and in the arena ready to mix it up.

President Donald Trump offered multiple impersonations during a campaign rally in Dallas, Texas on Thursday.

Trump showed the crowd his impersonation of a president of the United States -- and a CNN anchor.

"No guns. No religion. No oil. No natural gas," Trump said. "Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas under those circumstances. Couldn’t do it."

In fact, Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas when he ran for president as the state refused to print any ballots with his name.

He then showed the audience two impersonations as part of his 87-minute speech.

"I used it to say, I can be more presidential. Look," Trump said, as he shuffled awkwardly on stage.

Maddow reveals Trump’s Ukraine scandal is also an attempt to ‘unblame’ Russia for 2016 interference

Published

on

On MSNBC Thursday night, Rachel Maddow walked through an underreported aspect of the Ukraine scandal. When President Donald Trump dangled foreign aid in front of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, he was not just demanding he dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden — he was also demanding he help dig up information that would disprove the findings of former special counsel Robert Mueller in the Russia investigation.

"This scheme that the president and Giuliani were enacting using the three amigos, Gordon Sondland, Rick Perry, and [Kurt] Volker, who has already resigned, the scheme was to hold up a White House meeting for this foreign leader unless he coughed up stuff that Trump could use for his re-election effort against Joe Biden," said Maddow. "And in addition to that, interestingly, he needed help unblaming Russia for the 2016 election attack."
