‘What the f*ck is wrong with this guy?’: Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert rail against ‘sociopath’ Trump

Published

on

Jon Stewart joined Stephen Colbert on Monday to help “The Late Show” host offer Donald Trump “equal time” on his show.

Trump on Saturday insisted, via Twitter, that Republicans “should be given Equal Time on T.V.” Considering “The Late Show’s” propensity to make fun of the president, Colbert decided it would be fair to bring some “balance” to the program.

Colbert implored Stewart to “say something positive” about Trump.

“Donald Trump… is not… a cannibal,” Stewart barely managed.

“Given the choice between having hot lava poured into my pee hole and Donald Trump being president, I choose… the latter,” Stewart later eked out.

But it was Colbert’s mention of Trump’s “calm before the storm” comment last week that really crushed Stewart’s less-than-effusive praise of the president.

“What the f*ck is wrong with this guy?” Stewart demanded. “Oh, will Trump give humanity the rose?”

“How is all this not the storm?” he continued. “What kind of sociopath would use that terminology while people are still literally cleaning up from storms?”

Mitch McConnell crony running for Kentucky AG is ineligible for office: lawsuit

Published

on

On Tuesday, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that a new lawsuit seeks to remove Daniel Cameron from the ballot as the Kentucky GOP's nominee for state attorney general.

According to the lawsuit, filed by retired union worker and "concerned citizen" Joseph Leon Jackson Sr. in Jefferson Circuit Court, Cameron does not meet the office requirement of having practiced law for eight years — because although he was admitted by the Kentucky Bar Association in 2011, he spent two of the following years clerking for U.S. District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove.

Trump lashes out at Lindsey Graham after he accuses the president of showing ‘weakness’

Published

on

President Donald Trump and Sen. Lindsey Graham, once bitter enemies, have become close allies since the 2016 election as the South Carolina Republican realized it was in his personal interest to cozy up to the White House. But on Tuesday, fractures emerged between the two in public over a key issue for Graham: Iran.

Graham is on the severely hawkish wing of the Republican Party, and he clearly wants a war with Iran. He began a series of tweets Tuesday by praising Vice President Mike Pence’s briefing that day about the recent attack on Saudi oil infrastructure, saying he believes that “such a sophisticated attack could not have occurred without Iran’s blessing and direct involvement.” He called it an “an act of war” and lauded the Trump administration’s “efforts to create a regional coalition, thoroughly brief the Congress on the actions taken, and come up with a plan of action to restore deterrence against an evil regime in Iran.”

Right-wingers have a full-blown freakout over Kavanaugh revelations — and it could blow up in their faces

Published

on

Do Republicans think “men are the real victims of sexism” is a winning argument going into the 2020 election? That sounds preposterous, but there are strong indications that Donald Trump and other leading Republicans believe they can win by feeding a “victim mentality” in men, a mentality they otherwise tend to decry when detected in actual victims.

On Sunday, the New York Times published an article by the authors of a new book about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, introducing more corroborating evidence for claims that Kavanaugh had a history throughout high school and college of getting trashed and then sexually abusing his female classmates. That story, almost a year after Kavanaugh’s momentous confirmation hearings, was interesting further evidence that Kavanaugh likely perjured himself before the Senate. Ultimately, it doesn’t really change anything, since there’s little reason to believe that anyone actually believed Kavanaugh was telling the truth at the time.
