The host BBC One’s This Week began his show this week with an epic shredding of the ISIS terrorists who attacked Paris two weeks ago in a manner that recalled one by HBO’s John Oliver — but with less profanity and more bite.
Andrew Neil kicked off the show by addressing the ” bunch of loser jihadists who slaughtered 132 innocents in Paris to prove the future belongs to them.”
The he was off, listing off a seemingly endless parade of names of famous French men and women who made the world a better place, including Camus, Renoir, Curie, Hugo, Cézanne, Pasteur, Chanel, and even Daft Punk before bluntly adding, “versus what?”
“Beheadings, crucifixions, amputations, slavery, mass murder, medieval squalor, a death cult barbarity that would shame the Middle Ages,” he concluded.
Referring to them as “IS — as in Islamist scumbags” he stated, “In a thousand year’s time, Paris, that glorious city of lights, will still be shining bright as will every other city like it. And you will be dust, along with the ragbag of fascists, Nazis and Stalinists that previously dared to challenge democracy and failed.”

‘Vladimir Putin has something on Donald Trump’: Ambassador Sherman says the Kremlin must have kompromat
Former Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman concluded on Monday that Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin must have "something" on President Donald Trump.
"The latest reporting from The New York Times indicates that the thousands of troops that we have there, that the president moved, are now trapped. They don’t have an actual way out since Turkey has cut off the roads and the exit routes that they might use and so now there is the question of will there be an airlift? How will we get the U.S. troops out?" MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell asked.
"We haven’t had to get troops out like this since the fall of Saigon," Sherman replied. "This is going to be very, very difficult."
