Seth Meyers mocks Katrina Pierson: She’s like ‘a zookeeper when the monkeys start throwing their sh*t’

Published

on

Donald Trump is allegedly “softening” his pitiless anti-immigration stance — a narrative that’s both inaccurate and, according to Seth Meyers, revolting.

“That’s right, Trump is softening — also known as flip-flopping,” Meyers said. “He’s softening and flopping, he’s really sagging in the swing states. You see, his poll percentage is down, and he can’t seem to get it up. He can’t get any penetration — ugh, I do not feel good doing this.”

Trump has, at least verbally, reversed his position from just over a year ago, when he told NBC’s Chuck Todd that undocumented immigrants and their children “have to go.”

Now the Republican presidential nominee is trying to draw a murky distinction between “good” immigrants and “bad ones” — although his hapless spokeswoman Katrina Pierson insists Trump’s not changing his position, but only “the words that he is saying.”

“What does that even mean?” Meyer said. “That’s like saying, ‘I’m not breaking up with you, I’m just living in a different house with another woman, and we have three kids.'”

Meyers admits Pierson has a thankless job working for a prolific Dumpster arsonist.

“Is there any job worse than spokesperson for Donald Trump?” Meyers said. “It’s like being a zookeeper when the monkeys start throwing their sh*t at people. ‘No, that means they like you.'”

Meyers said Trump can’t just change his tune, now that his rallies regularly feature supporters chanting “build that wall” — and one prominent supporter, Ann Coulter, is already lashing out.

Coulter, who recently published the book, “In Trump We Trust,” complained that the Republican presidential candidate’s new stance would alienate her and other supporters.

“To be fair, when you write a book called ‘In Trump We Trust,’ you are just asking for that to blow up in your face,” Meyers said.

Trump abusing the intelligence community in an attempt to keep them quiet about Russia election hacks: Conservative

Published

on

The New York Times Magazine piece outlining President Donald Trump's battles with the U.S. intelligence community revealed that Russia is continuing to wage its own cyberwar against the world. According to conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot, the devastating report explained the extent to which the president is ignoring the threats to the 2020 election.

“The options faced by the intelligence community during Trump’s presidency have been stark: avoid infuriating the president but compromise the agencies’ ostensible independence, or assert that independence and find yourself replaced with a more sycophantic alternative," wrote Robert Draper in his lengthy investigation into Trump's efforts to politicize international intelligence. According to Boot, the most shocking part of the investigation was that the experts in the intelligence community have been banned from speaking honestly about the Russian attacks.

‘Incompetent moron’ Chuck Todd ripped for letting Trump official claim Democrats want more COVID-19 deaths

Published

on

"Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd is under fire -- once again -- after letting Donald Trump's trade adviser Peter Navarro claim on NBC that Democrats want more Americans to die during the coronavirus pandemic to boost their chances at the polls in November.

Instead of pushing back the NBC host known for his lack of follow-up questions let the comment slide by responding, "I take your point."

Todd's failure to call out the Trump aide for what one Twitter commenter called a "disgusting" comment led to an avalanche of criticism for the MBC political director who recently saw his weekday show cut back to make room for more commentary by colleague Nicolle Wallace.

In a deep dive into how Donald Trump has managed to hang onto Christain evangelicals despite his multitude of moral failures, one Christian conservative told the New York Times' Elizabeth Dias that Vice President Mike Pence doesn't get enough credit for being supportive of the president.

Speaking with Christians in Sioux Falls, Iowa, Dias found Trump support remaining strong despite his ongoing travails unsuccessfully battling the coronavirus pandemic and the collapsing economy that shows little signs of rebounding.
