Seinfeld mocks ‘Massa massages’ on SNL

Published

on

Jerry Seinfeld made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live to ridicule a congressman who resigned in disgrace last week. Rep. Eric Massa quit after it was revealed that he “groped” male staffers.

Seinfeld joined with Seth Meyers to do the segment called “Really!?!”

“Really, Eric Massa?” Meyers began. “First you claimed you were leaving Congress for illness. Then you said you were forced out by the White House. Then you said it was because you groped a staffer. And then you topped it all off by being the crazy one on the “Glenn Beck” show. Really?”

Seinfeld chimed in, “And when Larry King asked you if you were gay, you said, ‘ask my wife or ask the 10,000 guys I served with in the Navy.’ Really? First off, ask your wife, really? I mean, can I assume if you are gay, she might be the last person you’d tell?”

Meyers added, “Also, when crafting a sentence denying your homosexuality, try to leave out phrases like ‘10,000 guys’ or names of Village People songs like “In The Navy.” You might as well have said, “I’m not gay. Just ask the fellas down it the YMCA.”

Seinfeld punned, “And why do I have a sinking feeling that Massa massages were quickly followed by Massa-bations?”

Both comedians mercilessly mocked various other details of the Massa scandal, before momentarily shifting their disdain to New York Governor David Paterson. “It’s truly incredible to be New York’s biggest disaster at a time when David Paterson is still governor,” Meyers chided.

Alternet’s Adele Stan pointed out late last week that “the ethics investigation that Massa escaped by resigning his seat was not an exploration of whether or not the former congressman is gay, but whether he’s a sexual predator who subjects subordinates to unwanted sexual advances.”

Ex-Trump aides say the president regularly mocks his evangelical supporters behind their backs

Published

on

Former aides to President Donald Trump tell The Atlantic's McKay Coppins that the president regularly mocks his own evangelical Christian followers behind their backs.

In particular, the aides say the president sees many evangelicals in the same way that he reportedly sees American soldiers who died during World War I as "suckers" and "losers."

"Former aides told me they’ve heard Trump ridicule conservative religious leaders, dismiss various faith groups with cartoonish stereotypes, and deride certain rites and doctrines held sacred by many of the Americans who constitute his base," Coppins writes.

US designer brands Donald Trump a ‘Ku Klux Klan tyrant’

A Paris fashion week show has called for the end to the "tyranny" of US President Donald Trump.

American artist Sterling Ruby compared Trump to the racist Ku Klux Klan in his women's Paris show called "Veil Flag", in which a black model was draped in a distressed denim version of the Stars and Stripes.

Ruby's streetwear brand, S.R. Studio. LA. CA., made its fashion week debut in the French capital late Monday with a film featuring the flag and a spoken word poem.

"Where are we, and what has happened?" the poem began.

"No sovereignty, no empathy. A flag worn down, covered in hardship marching against leaderless leadership.

Donald Trump is broke and his businesses are collapsing — is that why he pushed to re-open the economy?

Published

on

For the past several decades, Donald Trump has been widely regarded as a great big phony. Everything about him is a mirage. He steals credit for the accomplishments of others, especially his predecessor, Barack Obama. His business model is all about slapping his goofy name on properties built by others. Even his outward appearance is a fraud: his unsubstantiated self-confidence, his hair, his clown makeup, his baggy suits designed to hide his doughy frame, even his shoes, which appear to have unusually high heels — it's all intended to make him appear physically more powerful than he actually is. Fake, fake and fake.

Yes, the Reichstag is on fire — but the American people have water to put it out: Will Bunch

Part of a life well-lived, I’ve come to realize, is hanging on to an old quote from a mentor or family member that over time has taken on much deeper meaning than when it was uttered to you as a clueless 16-year-old. For me, it’s the oxymoron that my high school football coach, Rob Pickert, used to teach how a defensive end must rush a quarterback — “with reckless abandon, but under control.” Over the next 45 years I’d see that’s the right way to tackle a lot of problems … including a vainglorious wannabe dictator poised to end U.S. democracy.My thoughts on President Donald Trump’s open contem...
