‘Are you insane?’: Seth Meyers torches our ‘neediest and most insecure president’ Trump

Published

on

Seth Meyers mocked Donald Trump—our “neediest and most insecure president”—for shameless hyping his own performance, after the commander-in-chief in Monday tweeted he’s accomplished “more than any 10 month president.”

“The way [special counsel] Robert Mueller is handing down indictments, there’s a good chance Trump will be a 10-month president,” Meyers joked.

The “Late Night” host later took aim at Trump’s proclivity towards golfing, despite the president’s relentless attacks on his predecessor, Barack Obama, for just that. Meyers noted Trump last week golfed for the fifth straight day, and joked that the U.S. Open only lasts four.

“Trump golfs more than people who play golf for a living,” Meyers said.

He then hit Trump for reportedly telling people the infamous Access Hollywood tape—during which the president admitted to sexual assault—may be fake.

“Are you insane?” Meyers asked. “Oh, wait.”

Meyers went on to knock the president’s self-aggrandizing Thanksgiving speech to U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

“Donald Trump is everyone’s grandpa,” Meyers said, noting the 70-year-old man made the call from Florida on Thanksgiving.

“[The troops] were probably relieved to get back to what they were doing—and what they were doing was Afghanistan,” Meyers said.

Trump economic task force member once called minimum wage law the ‘Black Teenage Unemployment Act’

Published

on

Art Laffer, a member of President Donald Trump's coronavirus economic task force who last year was honored with a Presidential Medal of Freedom, once referred to the federal minimum wage law as the "Black Teenage Unemployment Act" on Fox News while he attempted to claim that it made "no sense whatsoever."

"The minimum wage makes no sense whatsoever to me," Laffer told host Jenna Lee on the since-canceled Fox News show "Happening Now." "Honestly, it's just the teenage — 'Black Teenage Unemployment Act.' And this is the very group that we need to have jobs — not be put out of work because of a minimum wage. So, I'm very much in favor of, at least for teenagers, getting rid of the minimum wage."

‘There is a wickedness in our president’: Conservative Christian decries ‘cruelty’ of Trump’s latest smear campaign

Published

on

Peter Wehner, a conservative Christian who is a former senior adviser to George W. Bush, has written a blistering column calling out President Donald Trump's "cruelty" in his latest smear campaign against MSNBC host Joe Scarborough.

Trump has spent the past several weeks demanding that Scarborough be investigated for the 2001 death of Lori Klausutis, a former congressional staffer who fainted and fatally hit her head while working in Scarborough's Florida office.

Even though there is no evidence of foul play in the case and even though Scarborough was in Washington D.C. at the time of her fainting, Trump has nevertheless persisted in making false allegations against the MSNBC host.

Al Sharpton busts Trump’s hypocrisy on Morning Joe: ‘He chased Joe Scarborough like a hungry dog behind a bone’

Published

on

The Rev. Al Sharpton called out President Donald Trump for groveling for Joe Scarborough's approval for years, only to turn around and baselessly accuse him of murder.

The president claimed he'd always been haunted by the possibility that the "Morning Joe" had been involved in the 2001 death of former congressional staffer Lori Klausutis, but Sharpton dismissed that as nonsense.

....about whether or not Joe could have done such a horrible thing? Maybe or maybe not, but I find Joe to be a total Nut Job, and I knew him well, far better than most. So many unanswered & obvious questions, but I won’t bring them up now! Law enforcement eventually will?
