Stephen Colbert says Democratic debate ‘was like watching the Seven Dwarves offering Snow White a poison apple’

Published

Stephen Colbert on Tuesday presented a live episode of the “Late Show” following the second round of Democratic debates on CNN.

The comedian billed the segment as “Democratic Debate Night: 2 Many Candidates 2 Remember: Forget Harder.”

“CNN’s debate was broadcast from Detriot’s Fox Theater, you know their slogan, ‘when you think CNN, think Fox,'” he joked.

“It’s hard to sum up what happened tonight, but most of it was a bunch of guys with no chance to win the Democratic nomination, yelling Republican talking points at the people who can — it was like watching the Seven Dwarves offering Snow White a poison apple,” he explained.

The host ridiculed Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) for not putting his hand over his heart during the national anthem.

“The debate began with our national anthem,” Colbert said. “And everyone passed the test by holding their hands over their hearts, except Tim Ryan — unless he keeps his heart in his scrotum.”

“I’m not sure, I think he keeps his brain there,” he added.

Colbert had lots to add on the candidates, even appearing to drink a tumbler of liquor at one point.

‘One whopper after another’: CNN’s Acosta tears into Trump for lying the Postal Service can’t deliver enough ballots

Published

on

On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta slammed President Donald Trump's litany of lies about mail-in voting at the day's coronavirus press briefing.

"Right at the end of that press conference, the president was just telling one whopper after another about mail-in voting, at one point saying that he doesn't believe that the U.S. Postal Service has the ability to deal with mail-in balloting at election time," said Acosta. "We just need to point out, the U.S. Postal Service put out a statement late this afternoon that says, 'the Postal Service has ample capacity to adjust our nationwide processing and delivery network to meet projected election and political mail volume, including any additional volume that may result as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.'"

Trump’s strategy isn’t working in Pennsylvania — a state the president can’t afford to lose: report

Published

on

Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio are the four states that GOP strategists have been describing as President Donald Trump’s “Rust Belt firewall” — states that went to President Barack Obama in both 2008 and 2012 but favored Trump over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016. But that “firewall” has not been holding up for the president. Trump’s reelection campaign has "temporarily" suspended its advertising in Michigan, although it continues to advertise in the other three — all of which are clearly in play for former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee. And Philadelphia-based reporter Holly Otterbein, in an article published in Politico on August 2, stresses that so far, Trump’s attacks on Biden have not been resonating in Pennsylvania.

A 2020 ‘Blue Wave’ could badly cripple the Republican Party for years: Dem strategist

Published

on

In a column for New York magazine, Democratic strategist Ed Kilgore claimed that a "Blue Wave" election in 2020, like the one that switched the balance of power in the House to the Democrats, could have a far-reaching impact on congressional representation in elections to come.

In 2018, distaste for Donald Trump -- who was not on the ballot -- led voters to take out their wrath on Republican lawmakers, handing Democrats a net gain of 40 seats in the House and making Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) the House Speaker.
