Stephen Colbert hilariously mocks Oklahoma governor ‘Stitt for brains’ for catching COVID-19 after ignoring masks

Published

on

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) revealed Wednesday that he is positive for the coronavirus. It could have been the exposure he incurred at the Trump rally. Or it could have been all of those times he went out without a mask saying he was “social distancing.” Either way, it was something “A Late Show” host Stephen Colbert found to be a hilarious example of schadenfreude.

“All the people in charge who told us the pandemic wasn’t a big deal are looking big dumb right now like Oklahoma governor and chunky Dracula Kevin Stitt, cuz remember Trump’s rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma full of unmasked open mouth screamers,” said Colbert. “Lots of people called it a terrible idea, said it should be canceled. Not Governor Stitt.”

In an interview with Fox News, Stitt said that the rally would be “very safe” and that it was the “right time.” He then asked if people didn’t think it was the right time, “When is the right time?”

“Oh, oh! I know, when it won’t kill the audience?” asked Colbert. “So anyway they threw the rally and 6,000 people shouted their aerosolized viruses at each other and Governor Stitt was there without a mask to huff it all in. And now to the governor, the Stitt has hit the fan because earlier today he made this announcement.”

Colbert played Stitt’s confession video, which showed him staring down a screen like a hostage video. He also confessed that he felt “a little bit achy” but so far is fine.

“Well, I would feel achy too if I spent the afternoon banging my head against the wall going, Stitt! You big dummy! Why did you do it!? You did it again! Just like the time you drank that whole jug of creek water because your cousin said it was iced tea! G*ddamn you, you Stitt for brains!”

Colbert did say he hopes Stitt recovers soon and encouraged him to wear a mask because he is now contagious, but also, “because you might want to hide your face in shame for a while.”

Colbert also mocked Florida for doing worse than if there was no governor in office at all.

“In Florida alone, new cases over the past week outstripped the total count in most European nations, that is a shocking vacuum of leadership in a state that I will remind you has an entire hall of presidents,” he said, citing the Disney Hall of Presidents. “Can’t we just plug in an extension cord into one of those old guys and put him in charge?”

‘I could have died’: Arizona Trump voters beg friends to take COVID seriously after getting hospitalized

Published

on

A pair of Arizona residents who voted for President Donald Trump in 2016 are now imploring their friends to not make the same mistake they did when they refused to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously.

In an interview with CNN, Debi and Michael Patterson told reporter Omar Jimenez that they laughed off public health recommendations about protecting themselves against the disease.

"It was almost like a joke in our group of friends," Debi Patterson explained.

"Did you wear a mask?" Jimenez asked.

"Nope," she replied.

"Did you hang out with your friends as normal?" he asked, to which she nodded her head.

Legal expert: Trump’s lawyers stepped into a new ‘bombshell’ about president’s alleged crimes

Published

on

MSNBC legal analyst Joyce Vance revealed how President Donald Trump's lawyers accidentally set off a bombshell revelation.

The president's attorneys argued last week that a grand jury subpoena targeting the president's accountants was overbroad and politically motivated, but Manhattan district attorney’s office revealed Trump may be under investigation for possible bank and insurance fraud.

"It's important to know the posture of the case," Vance said. "This is Cy Vance going to the court and saying the president has no claims that have any merit, you need to dismiss this second amended complaint that he's filed. He's tried repeatedly to file claims that would survive court challenge and failed, and Vance says go ahead and dismiss this complaint, it's time for us to enforce our subpoena and get the [accounting firm] Mazars document."

‘You don’t want to go there’: Morning Joe slaps down Trump campaign’s new attack

On MSNBC's "Morning Joe," co-host Joe Scarbrough took a shot at Donald Trump's new campaign manager who made his debut on Fox News on Monday for his comments about former Vice President Joe Biden,  saying he is pushing a line of attack that will blow up in his face.

During his appearance on Fox & Friends, Bill Stepien who recently took over the faltering Trump campaign, launched an attack on Biden saying you can "judge him" by the people he surrounds himself with.

After watching the clip, MSNBC host Scarborough said the campaign manager was making a big mistake.

"You just don't want to go there," the MSNBC host warned. "That was President Trump's newly promoted campaign manager making his first TV appearance yesterday, and he was talking about the people that Joe Biden surrounds himself with."
