Jon Stewart mocks Putin’s ‘disturbingly shirtless aggression’ against Ukraine

Published

on

Daily Show host Jon Stewart caught Russian President Vladimir Putin in a “gotcha moment” on Monday regarding his troops’ invasion of Ukraine, while also noting the increasing level of the threat.

“Russian forces storming Ukrainian bases — that is blatant, naked aggression,” Stewart said. “Or, at the very least, disturbingly shirtless aggression. But, with this aggression, it looks like Putin’s gone Heil Titler.”

However, as the U.S. and members of the international community criticized the Russian incursion, Stewart pointed out, it was Putin criticizing the U.S. not six months ago over the prospect of American military intervention in Syria, through an op-ed in The New York Times.

“I think Vladimir Putin is gonna feel pretty stupid when he watches this show tonight and sees that he’s been caught in a classic Daily Show gotcha moment,” Stewart observed. “Probably pretty hard to keep invading a country when you’ve been unmasked as a hypocrite. Ukraine, you’re welcome.”

Stewart also mocked Russia’s attempts to create a mystery surrounding their troops on the ground in the Crimean peninsula.

“So they speak Russian, and they look Russian, and they’re eating Russian dressing on their salads,” Stewart said. “And when asked, ‘Russian says what?,’ reports confirm that they say, ‘What?'”

Watch Stewart’s commentary, as aired on Comedy Central, below.

‘Gaslighting on a massive scale’: Doctor warns Trump is lying us into a COVID disaster

Published

On CNN Friday, Dr. Celine Grounder tore into President Donald Trump's ongoing falsehoods about the coronavirus pandemic.

"No matter how many times public health officials, especially like Anthony Fauci, speak the truth, what does it do, Doctor, when the president continues to lie to the public in face of a public health crisis?" asked anchor Kate Bolduan.

"This is gaslighting on an enormous scale, and means until people eventually get sick or their family members get sick, the communities hit hard, they won't believe it, and then it will be too late," said Grounder. "The problem is there's a lag period from the time that somebody's infected and starts to develop symptoms a couple days later. We don't see people get severely sick and need to be hospitalized and in ICUs until a week into disease, and talking about probably one to two weeks of lag time from the time somebody's exposed at least before you start to see hospitalizations and then another couple weeks before you start to see deaths."

Published

California Congresswoman Katie Porter is demanding the resignation of the Trump administration's small business chief for enabling "abuse" and "waste" of coronavirus relief funds and refusing to comply with basic government oversight efforts.

Porter's call came after the Government Accountability Office (GAO) said in a report last week that it "encountered the most difficulty trying to obtain information from the Small Business Administration (SBA)" during the process of examining the Trump administration's handling of the $650 billion Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

‘We’ve got to get a new guy’: Florida Trump voters lash out at the president as they flee the GOP

Published

In interviews with CNN's Jeff Zeleny, longtime Florida Republicans who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 admitted they have no intention of helping him stay in office when they vote in November.

With polls showing the president trailing in the all-important Sunshine State, where seniors preferred Trump over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by 21 points last election, the president now finds himself bleeding support from a demographic he desperately needs if he wants to stay in the Oval Office after the first of the year.

According to retired banker John Dudley, 77, he voted for Trump last election and the president promptly "blew it."
