Stephen Colbert hammers Donald Trump: He’s not even white — he’s ‘Oompa-Loompamerican’

Published

Late Show host Stephen Colbert indulged himself a little on Tuesday, allowing himself to make one observation regarding Donald Trump — before giving in to the urge to let him have it some more.

“See? What’s on top of his head is definitely his,” Colbert said after airing footage of a South Carolina woman vouching for the candidate’s hair. “Now it’s up to science to decide whether it’s actually hair.”

Speaking of supporters, the host expressed some surprise that white supremacists are gushing about the real estate mogul’s run for the Republican presidential nomination.

“Everyone likes Trump,” Colbert said. “Even white supremacists — which is amazing, ’cause Trump’s not even white; he’s more Oompa-Loompamerican.”

Eventually, Colbert — who also mocked Trump this past June — gorged himself on clips of the reality show star, including footage of him stating that putting up buildings was easier than building a wall along the US-Mexico border.

“Yes, a border wall could not be simpler,” Colbert said. “Just build a 95-story building [and] knock it over 10,000 times. Then you keep the Mexicans out with a doorman.”

‘Rudy is a lousy lawyer’: Ex-prosecutor reveals why nobody will hire Giuliani for legal work

Published

on

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is getting rich selling his access to the White House, in spite of being a "lousy" attorney, according to a former federal prosecutor.

Paul Butler was interviewed on MSNBC by Kendis Gibson on Saturday.

"One issue is that representing Donald Trump has been great business for Rudy Giuliani," Butler noted.

"Since he’s started to be his defense attorney, there’s a huge demand for Rudy’s services. And let's face it, Rudy is a lousy lawyer. We’ve all seen him go on TV and by the time he goes off TV his client is in more trouble. So people probably aren’t hiring him for his legal skills, they want his access," he explained.

Here’s what Trump and his defenders are hiding whenever they insist that something is ‘perfect’

Published

on

On Saturday's edition of MSNBC's "AM Joy," civil rights activist and MSNBC contributor Maya Wiley pinned down what it means when President Donald Trump and his associates describe something as "perfect" — a word they have frequently used throughout the Ukraine scandal.

"The problem we have here ... is there is no sunshine, there is no light being shone on what happened here. And one of our questions should also be, why not?" said Wiley. "Every time we hear the word 'perfect' out of the White House — it was a 'perfect' call with the Ukrainian president, now Mick Mulvaney is saying [Trump National Doral] was a 'perfect' place [for a diplomatic summit], serving the needs — every time we hear 'perfect,' and we kind of get the suggestion that they're worried and they've got something to hide."
