COMEDY 07/27/2018 07:07 am ET “If there are two Trumps in the area, that elephant better get the hell out of there." By Lee Moran Jimmy Kimmel used one of his 1-year-old son Billy’s animal-themed books to throw shade at President Donald Trump’s eldest sons. The “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host said on Thursday night’s show he was unhappy with the way the elephant goes “Trump! Trump!” at the end of the children’s book, titled Can You Say It, Too? Roar! Roar! “If there are two Trumps in the area, that elephant better get the hell out of there. It’s probably Eric and Donald Jr. with their guns,” Kimmel quipped, in reference to the brothers’ penchant for big-game hunting. Kimmel then introduced an extra page, which he believed brought the story to a more Trumpian conclusion. Check out the full clip above.

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs tore into House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tonight, claiming the “establishment buffoons” are hurting President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” agenda. Dobbs embarked on the following rant on tonight’s airing of Lou Dobbs Tonight: “I have made to secret of my contempt of the politics of Speaker Ryan and his like minded band of RINOs in the House and Senate. Just as Ryan has made no secret about his disdain for the national interest, our working families, our middle class. Ryan’s chief appeal to his corporatist masters seems to be his puppyish eagerness to please the power brokers of the establishment and the money marauders who infest K Street, and his passionate pursuit of open borders and cheap illegal immigrant labor. He of course was no fan of defined benefit programs, you know, pensions, which he saw as an awful, terrible … [Read more...] about Lou Dobbs Calls For Removing ‘Buffoons’ Paul Ryan and McConnell: They ‘Senselessly Obstructed’ Trump
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) backed up Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) on Wednesday by expressing confidence in the congressman’s determination that the FBI acted appropriately with regard to President Donald Trump‘s 2016 campaign. As Ryan took questions today with his fellow GOP congressional leaders, he was asked about the recent statements from Gowdy which greatly deflated Trump’s claims that the FBI planted a spy in his campaign. Ryan attended the same FBI/DOJ briefing as Gowdy, and even though Ryan said there’s more to look into, he also said his colleague’s assessment was “accurate.” “We are waiting for some more document requests. We have some more documents to review. We still have some unanswered questions. It would have been helpful if we’d gotten this information earlier. As Chairman Nunes said the other day, if we had the information we were looking for, we could wrap this up faster. I have seen no evidence to the contrary of … [Read more...] about Paul Ryan Breaks With Trump, Says ‘SpyGate’ Claim is Bogus: FBI Did ‘Exactly’ What it Was Supposed to
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) stopped by The Daily Briefing on Fox News Wednesday, for his first TV interview since announcing his departure from Congress at the end of his term. But the Congressman is, for the moment, still a politician. And as a politician, he’s apparently not averse to making claims that are really, really hard to believe. Daily Briefing Host Dana Perino asked the House Speaker about his relationship with President Donald Trump. And the Representative from Wisconsin gushed about a man from whom he’s had many public and private spats. “[I]t’s just knowing each other,” Ryan said — chalking up his prior differences with the president to their not having a personal relationship. “We spend a great deal of time with each other. I’m having dinner with him. We speak on the phone constantly. So honestly, we just developed a good friendship. We’ve developed a good rapport. He is the one who gave us with his victory this … [Read more...] about Paul Ryan Gushes About Trump in First TV Interview Since Calling It Quits: We ‘Developed a Good Friendship’
On Thursday night, Jimmy Kimmel shared his thoughts in a rather serious monologue about the release of the GOP memo.Kimmel began by slamming House Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) and calling him “Donald Trump‘s lapdog,” which he said was an “insult to dogs and laps.” He dismissed Nunes’ memo as an “obvious attempt to paint the FBI as biased” against Trump and to “discredit the work of the special counsel.”“Here’s how our government works now; if your party is in charge, you can lie, you can cheat, you can game the system to benefit your buddies. You can basically do whatever you want,” Kimmel said. “Then, when a newspaper digs whatever your did up and publishes a story about it, you don’t just attack the facts, you don’t just attack the story, you attack the newspaper. The newspaper is biased even when the newspaper clearly isn’t biased.”He took aim at Trump for … [Read more...] about Kimmel Roasts GOP Over Memo: Paul Ryan ‘Ringmaster’ at ‘World’s Most Perverted Circus’
