Fox News host Tucker Carlson said on Sunday that he would like to see comedians mocking transgender people instead of the terrorist group ISS.

Over the weekend, social media reportedly erupted over a Saturday Night Live segment spoofing feel-good Toyota commercials. In the SNL version, actress Dakota Johnson plays a young lady saying goodbye to her father as she appears to be joining the U.S. Army. As the segment ends, it turns out that she is actually being picked up by ISIS terrorists in a Toyota truck.

On Sunday, Carlson described the sketch as “appalling” and “kind of funny.”

“The question is, should we be mocking ISIS?” he asserted.

“Comics push the envelope and every once in a while they are going to push it too far, and it’s going to bust wide open,” co-host Anna Kooiman opined. “And sometimes when you want to cry, you need to laugh instead. And you tell a joke about it.”

“I’m kind of for comedy that goes as far as it can,” Carlson said. “But I always feel like with shows like SNL and comedy in general, it does stop short of the sacred cows on the left.”

“I would love to see an SNL sketch like making fun of transgender bathrooms, for example,” he added. “You will never, ever see that. Why? Because it’s just too far. There actually is a line, it’s just a different line than most of us perceive.”

Both Carlson and co-host Clayton Morris agreed that Saturday Night Live should also mock climate change activists.

“I would see [a sketch] mocking the hysteria around climate change,” Carlson declared. “That would be bold. You think they have the stones to do that?”

Trump’s ex-election security official attacks Giuliani for ‘apparent attempt to undermine confidence in the election’

Published

President Donald Trump and his legal crew of misfit attorneys have waged 39 lawsuits to overturn the 2020 election. All but one of them has been laughed out of court. Trump and his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, have continued going to court in an attempt to get a legal challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court. Trump also fired his cybersecurity czar responsible for securing the election after refusing to corroborate the story that the election was stolen.

In an interview with "60 Minutes," Chris Krebs, former director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, explained that Giuliani and Trump are apparently attempting "to undermine confidence in the election, to confuse people, to scare people.”

‘Failed incumbent’ Trump is being ignored now that his ‘mystique is gone’: Ex-GOPer Dave Jolly

Published

Former Republican Rep. David Jolly explained that there are two problems outgoing President Donald Trump is facing: First, he is resting comfortably in his own house of denial, but second, his advisers aren't doing their jobs in walking him through his lack of options to steal the 2020 election.

"None of those advisers will actually go to work for Donald Trump," said Jolly. "Consider just among the legal community the number of reputable lawmakers that said we won't have a meritless claim because their reputation is on the line as well."

He recalled all of the times Trump bragged that he would hire "all the best people" for the White House and cabinet.

‘Pathetic’ Trump ridiculed by MSNBC guest for latest attention-grabbing stunts: ‘He’s the Republicans’ problem’ now

Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy" with host Maria Teresa Kumar, conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin ridiculed Donald Trump for whining about his election loss and making plans to disrupt President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration in January, saying the president can't stand not being the center of attention.

Asked about the president wanting to possibly hold a rally on Biden's swearing-in day, Rubin labeled the president as "pathetic."

"I think it's somewhat ridiculous and it's also a good test for the media, frankly," Rubin responded. "There is absolutely no bigger story than the inauguration of Joe Biden and no one should cover Trump's [ inaudible]. This is pathetic -- jumping up and down, 'me, me, me.'"
