Trevor Noah and Stephen Colbert urge Americans to ‘unite under the banner of human’ after baseball rampage

Published

on

During an appearance on The Late ShowThe Daily Show‘s Trevor Noah told host Stephen Colbert that his biggest takeaway from the Virginia baseball field shooting targeting Republican congresspeople was the initial unified response.

“It was great to see people from both sides seeing this and uniting under the banner of ‘human’ and ‘American’ before anything else,” Noah said. “That’s one of the things that we’re seeing less and less of in society today.”

He went on to recount a conversation he had with Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), whose friendship with Attorney General Jeff Sessions prior to the AG’s testimony on Tuesday wasn’t well-known.

The fact that lawmakers who battle on legislative floors can be friends and respect each other outside of politics, Noah said, should be better publicized to avoid politically-motivated shootings like that in Alexandria.

“Like Paul Ryan and Nancy Pelosi said today,” Noah continued, “‘We fight tooth and nail but we don’t forget that we are people, we are friends, we are families, we are colleagues.'”

Politicians, Noah said, “could do a better job” of telling constituents: “‘we fight, you can fight, but don’t forget that at your core, you are Americans.”

President Donald Trump was the target of a Democratic press conference with four Congresswomen of color who were calling him out for racist tweets telling them to go back to their countries.

The women attacked every policy that Trump seems to be losing on. Trump seemed to try and pivot to another issue entirely, blaming former President Barack Obama for building the cages that he's putting children in after he takes them from their parents.

The Obama Administration built the Cages, not the Trump Administration! DEMOCRATS MUST GIVE US THE VOTES TO CHANGE BAD IMMIGRATION LAWS.

Trump goes off on ‘socialist, communist’ rant saying Democrats are ‘pro Al-Qaeda’

Published

President Donald Trump took his racist comments even further Monday afternoon, saying that Democrats are now pro-terrorism.

"We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!" Trump ranted. "It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country. They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, “some people did something.” Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more. Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!"

‘Bond is dead’: White dudes flip out over casting of a black woman as next Agent 007

Published

on

On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that the new 007 -- the special agent in the James Bond series -- will be portrayed by the black actress Lashana Lynch.

The announcement set off predictably racist and sexist reactions.

Perhaps the most prominent right-winger to voice his displeasure was Ben Shapiro, who complained that it didn't make sense for Bond to be a woman because of the character's signature seduction moves.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.
