Trevor Noah mocked the Benghazi Commission investigation on Thursday’s Daily Show, noting that its hearing with Hillary Clinton came after eight separate committee probes and 13 hearings costing $20 million overall.

“Bravo, Congress,” he said. “You’re the only institution that can spend more money on something with no plot than Michael Bay.”

Noah showed a clip of Bay’s film 13 Hours, which purports to show the “secret soldiers” in action during the fatal September 2012 consulate attack that spawned the investigation, which turned into several investigations.

“Maybe you should wonder if you’re overdoing when you have more sequels than Fast & The Furious,” the host said.

He also needled the committee’s chair, Rep. Trey Gowdy, (R-SC) saying he looked like “a baby possum on picture day at school” and described one of his hairdoes as what would happen if “someone put Anderson Cooper’s face under a heavy book overnight.”

Noah also admired Clinton’s demeanor during the hearing, particularly the moment when she responded to a question by mentioning her book and offering to send it to committee members.

“That is gangsta,” he gushed. “Hillary’s promoting her book in the middle of a hearing that could end her political career.”

‘Trump brought a whole new meaning to white noise’: Colbert says president gave crackheads a bad name

Published

"They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting Donald Trump to shut up," said Stephen Colbert as part of his debate wrap-up on Wednesday night.

"He brought a whole new meaning to white noise," the host quipped on "A Late Show."

"I don't know what Chris Wallace was supposed to do," said Colbert. "At the next debate, they should just give the moderator a button to bring on the slime. I'm not the only one who despised last night's debate, according to a CBS poll, of the people who watched it, 69 percent felt annoyed. Annoyed? Really, evidently, 'gouging out my eyes with a grapefruit spoon' was not an option."

‘Classic projection’: Mary Trump says the president was triggered when Biden called a policy ‘not smart’

Published

President Donald Trump's niece Mary not only spent her life around the president and his family, but she also has the benefit of being a psychologist who could legitimately assess the life and mental health of her uncle.

Speaking to MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell, she explained that in one particular moment in the Tuesday evening debate, Trump seemed triggered by former Vice President Joe Biden's use of the phrase "not smart" in reference to a policy. Trump went off.

"Did you use the word 'smart?'" Trump asked after Biden insulted Trump's coronavirus plan as not being "smart."

"So you said you went to Delaware State but you forgot the name of your college," Trump continued, falsely claiming something Biden never said. "You didn't go to Delaware state. You graduated either the lowest or almost the lowest in your class. Don't ever use the word 'smart' with me. Don't ever use that word."

Trump attacks NBC for covering a hurricane instead of his Nobel Prize nomination: ‘These people are sick’

Published

on

In a series of bizarre nonsequiturs in Duluth, Minnesota Wednesday evening, President Donald Trump unleashed on NBC News for covering a monster hurricane hitting Louisiana and Mississippi instead of talking about his friend nominating him for a Nobel Prize.

Former President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize at the start of his presidency, and like the ever-illusive Emmy Trump also hasn't won, the Nobel Prize has never been within his grasp. The Obamas were nominated for seven Emmys for a series of things they produced with Netflix. They won an Emmy for outstanding directing for a documentary/nonfiction program for "American Factory."
