Andrew Sullivan tells Stephen Colbert: Karl Rove’s ‘head just exploded’

Published

on

During a live interview immediately following Tuesday night’s election results, Newsweek contributor Andrew Sullivan told Comedy Central’s faux conservative pundit Stephen Colbert that Republican strategist Karl Rove’s head actually “exploded” live on Fox News when the election was called for President Barack Obama.

“Karl Rove is demanding a raincheck,” Sullivan quipped. “Right now, Karl Rove is challenging Fox News’s own polling unit and telling them they’re wrong.”

“What do you think happens to Karl now?” Colbert replied. “He promised my billionaire friends…”

“His head just exploded,” Sullivan said, grinning.

“He promised a bunch of billionaires that if they gave him $300 million he would deliver [a win against] Obama,” Colbert said. “Does he have to go into, like, the witness protection program now?”

“Sheldon Adelson poured millions into six races and lost all six of them,” Sullivan noted. “Money is not everything.”

British PM candidates clash over Brexit as Boris Johnson skips debate

Published

on

Candidates to become Britain's next prime minister clashed over Brexit strategy at their first debate on Sunday but the frontrunner, Boris Johnson, dodged the confrontation.

The 90-minute debate on Channel 4 featured the five remaining candidates and an empty podium for Johnson, the gaffe-prone former foreign secretary and former mayor of London.

In sometimes ill-tempered exchanges, four of the five candidates said they would seek to renegotiate the draft Brexit divorce deal agreed with Brussels even though EU leaders have repeatedly ruled this out.
