Stephen Colbert ridiculed President Donald Trump’s comments about his son and soccer during a special episode after the Super Bowl.
The president said that he would not encourage his 12-year-old son Barron to play football due to safety concerns, and noted that he preferred to play soccer, which Trump said he never expected to become so popular.
“Yes, we tried to keep soccer out for a long time, but it’s hard,” Colbert joked. “It’s moving so rapidly. That’s how the caravan does it. They just dribble their kids up to the border, and then they bicycle kick them into El Paso, yelling, ‘Goooaaalll!’”
“That’s really why we need the wall,” he added. “But it’s hard to build when you can’t use your hands.”
Giuliani associate Lev Parnas willing to testify Devin Nunes met with former Ukrainian official to get dirt on Joe Biden
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has been tied to yet another questionable encounter with Rudy Giuliani's indicted associate.
It was revealed this week that Lev Parnas helped Nunes set up meetings in Europe in efforts to discredit the Russia investigation. It obviously failed, but Nunes closed his Intelligence Committee investigation nearly one year before Robert Mueller finalized his. Nunes missed several international connections, incidents of international donors funneling campaign cash into the U.S. and more.
Watch Chris Hayes’ epic scolding of the commander-in-chief in MSNBC special before a live studio audience
MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes publicly scolded President Donald Trump during a special showing of "All In" before a live studio audience.
The host broke down the discredited conspiracy theory Trump has been pushing that it was actually Ukraine -- not Russia -- that interfered in the 2016 election.
Hayes was especially shocked that Trump was going after Hunter Biden, when his job is to protect Americans.
"Because the president -- and I know he doesn't believe this, but it's true -- the president is the president of Hunter Biden, too," Hayes said. "He is."
"Because Hunter Biden is an American citizen and it is the president's duty to protect all Americans -- all Americans -- from the deprivations of foreign judicial systems. In fact, it is really the president's job to represent all of America's national interests. That's the job."
The Republican Party will be judged for many many years for what it does in this trial: Carl Bernstein
Veteran newsman Carl Bernstein warned the Republican Party that they will be "judged" for decades based on their behavior in President Donald Trump's impeachment.
During a Friday CNN appearance, the Watergate reporter from The Washington Post explained that the GOP clearly doesn't care about truth, justice or the rule of law.
"There's very little interest in the truth by the president's Republican defenders," he told host Erin Burnett. "Which is a really terrible thing given the grievous nature of the president's corruption, his illegal acts that have now been demonstrably made apparent through the impeachment hearings. The Republican Party is really also on trial in the Senate. And we'll see if there's any breaking of ranks. And right now, it doesn't appear that there is going to be. But I think it will be many, many years that the Republican Party will be judged for what it does in this trial of Donald Trump."
