A more animated Jon Stewart — literally — could be on HBO in time for the election

Published

on

Jon Stewart’s appearance on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show last month may be just the beginning of his election commentary this year, Variety reported.

HBO programming president Casey Bloys revealed over the weekend that Stewart is “establishing an animation studio,” and could begin releasing material in September or October.

“The idea is it will be an animated parody of a cable news network with an Onion-like portal,” Bloys said during an event hosted by the Television Critics Association, adding that the studio would allow Stewart “to comment in real time with what’s happening during the day’s news events.”

Stewart signed on with HBO last November, about three months after retiring from hosting The Daily Show.

Bloys said that Stewart’s new material would be released through the network’s digital platforms, but would also likely include a 30-minute program aired on traditional television.

Last month, Stewart joined former Daily Show correspondent Colbert to deliver a blistering critique of not only Donald Trump and the Republican National Convention, but Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

“Here’s where we are: Either [Hannity] and his friends are lying about being bothered by thin-skinned, authoritarian, less-than-Christians readers of prompters being president, or they don’t care — as long as it’s their skin-skinned, prompter, authoritarian, tyrant, narcissist,” Stewart said at the time.

One of the significant issues Republicans lost on in 2018 was their nearly decade-long crusade to unmake the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

This week Trump will announce that he's running for president again, and he promises a surprise announcement while there. While it's unclear what he intends for the surprise, one thing he is talking about is a better healthcare law than the Democratic one.

According to The New York Times, Trump is "vowing to issue the plan within a month or two, reviving a campaign promise with broad consequences for next year’s contest."

Donald Trump whines: ‘My life has always been a fight’

Published

on

The full interview with President Donald Trump finally aired on ABC Sunday, revealing the shocking way that he views his life.

Trump lamented that he's had such a hard life, as the son of multi-millionaires who paid to get him out of trouble multiple times.

"You're a fighter. You, you, it feels like you're in a constant kind of churn--" host George Stephanopoulos began.

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."
