Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing

Published

“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.

“I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.

I’ve heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,”

The host ripped Trump’s 71-minute press conference.

“Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it’s a one man show,” he explained. “If you liked ‘Fleabag,’ you’ll love Donald Trump in ‘Douchebag,'” he said.

Colbert reported on how the White House had announced that the G-7 Summit would be held at Trump National Doral golf course.

“Wow. Taxpayer money being spent at his own place. That is bald self-dealing, you’d have to be an idiot to defend that. Enter North Dakota Senator Kevin Cramer,” he said.

“But most Republicans freaked out, ran for cover, changed their names and filed off their fingerprints,” he explained. “So Saturday, Trump announced he would no longer be using Doral for the G-7.”

To any halfway objective observer, the first day of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which are ongoing as of this writing, have not gone well for Trump’s defenders.

Bill Taylor, the top US ambassador in Kyiv, and veteran State Department official George Kent came off as principled and non-partisan as they delivered damning testimony about the Trump regime’s multifaceted campaign to coerce the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into fringe right-wing conspiracy theories designed to deflect blame for interfering in the 2016 election from Russia and onto Ukraine.

Progressives hilariously ridicule Donald Trump Jr.’s new book with their own Trump triggers #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr

Published

on

President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.

The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and other House Republicans were clearly trying to rally the Trumpian base on Wednesday, when the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump offered its first public testimony. Jordan and Nunes aggressively tried to discredit the inquiry and the two witnesses who testified: diplomat William B. Taylor (U.S. ambassador to Ukraine) and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George P. Kent. But conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a Wednesday column, stressed that House Republicans — for all their “antics and conspiracy theories” — failed to show why Trump shouldn’t be impeached, while House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and other House Democrats showed why he should.
