Last night, Saturday Night Live brought Alec Baldwin back to reprise his role as Donald Trump. Baldwin recreated Trump’s rose garden speech declaring a national emergency to build the wildly unpopular border wall. The declaration comes after congress refused to grant the president $5 billion for the wall. What’s wild about our current political moment is that its ridiculousness almost transcends satire. SNL was game to give it a try, poking fun at the president’s broken syntax, his rambling speech, and his tangent about China’s death penalty. Baldwin said, “We need wall, because wall works. Wall makes safe. You don’t need to be smart to understand that, in fact it’s easier to understand if you’re not that smart.” He followed up by saying, “you can all see why I gotta fake this national emergency, right? I have to because I want to.” Baldwin followed up by imitating Trump’s singsong version of the national … [Read more...] about Delicate Flower Donald Trump Whines on Twitter Over His SNL Portrayal
Last night we reported on Republican strategist and frequent cable news pundit Rick Wilson saying the wall promise has been a “con” from President Donald Trump to his “credulous rube 10-toothed base.” Tucker Carlson tonight went on a tear against Wilson in response. Wilson was the main focus of a segment Carlson did on media condescension to Trump voters. Carlson called Wilson “a semi-obscure consultant who’s held just enough low-level political jobs that cable television producers can bill him as a Republican strategist.” “Wilson seems to spend most of his life opining in one of those 6-guest shout-fests in boxes that the other channels specialize in. He’s often shouting the loudest. What makes Wilson notable like so many on the left he’s moved on from hating Trump to hate people who voted for Trump,” Carlson continued. And after playing his comments last night, Carlson said, “What a cruel and awful thing to say. … [Read more...] about Tucker Carlson Rips ‘Semi-Obscure’ Rick Wilson for Mocking Trump’s ‘Ten-Toothed Base’; Wilson Fires Back
Allyson Chiu, The Washington Post Published 3:03 am PST, Thursday, December 6, 2018 For many, former president George H.W. Bush's state funeral Wednesday represented a time of reflection and remembrance. Moving eulogies were delivered, prayers were read and hymns were sung. But for late-night hosts, the somber event presented yet another opportunity to make fun of one of their favorite subjects: President Trump. Related Stories Trump could've ruined Bush's funeral. Bush didn't let him. All the presidents at the Bush funeral service together recited this core prayer. Except one. As The Washington Post's Philip Rucker reported, Trump did not receive a warm welcome when he and first lady Melania Trump arrived at Washington National Cathedral, engaging in a "plainly uncomfortable" encounter as they took their seats alongside the Obamas, Clintons and Carters. Of the six former presidents and first ladies sitting in that first pew, Trump has publicly insulted all … [Read more...] about Stephen Colbert rips Trump as ‘the only person in the world who can bring down a funeral’
