  • Actual Politico Headline: 'How Trump Turned Liberal Comedians Conservative'

    Newsbusters ^ | June 16, 2019 | P.J. Gladnick
    Clickbait. That is the only possible explanation for Politico putting this headline on one of their articles on Saturday: "How Trump Turned Liberal Comedians Conservative." When the reader sees that there is almost no way they can resist finding out how liberal comedians became conservative due to Trump which was the premise of the title on the story by Joanna Weiss. Naturally, this thesis comes from a professor, Dannagal Young at the University of Delaware, who claims that liberals, like Jon Stewart in his Comedy Central heyday, are "playful, subversive, at once cynical and weirdly optimistic." Liberals under Trump, by contrast, are...

    FULL TITLE: Ellen Page ‘Late Show’ Interview Blaming Trump and Pence for Jussie Smolett Hate Hoax Has 18 Million Views Appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last month, the actress took particular aim at Pence over his long-held opposition to same-sex marriage. “The vice president of America wishes I didn’t have the love with my wife,” Ellen Page explained. “If you are in a position of power and you hate people, and you want to cause suffering to them, you go through the trouble, you spend your career trying to cause suffering, what do you think is going...

    California Rep. Eric Swalwell is officially in the running for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. Swalwell made the announcement during a taping Monday of CBS’ ”The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” The congressman says, “I see a country in quicksand, unable to solve threats from abroad, unable to make life better for people here at home.” He says, “None of that is going to change until we get a leader who is willing to go big on the issues we take on, be bold in the solutions we offer and do good in the way that we govern.” He says:...

    I’ve never seen such a nasty reaction to something so simple, honest, and sincere. Jay Leno appeared on the "Today Show" last week to discuss the importance of monitoring cholesterol. During the interview, Al Roker pivoted to ask if he missed hosting the “Tonight Show.” Leno’s answer detailed the reasons it’s no longer a forum he recognizes or misses. “Now everyone HAS to know your politics…When people see you as one-sided, it just makes it tough,” Leno said. “And look, I did it when Clinton was horny and Bush was dumb. It was just a little easier. You know, now...

    Meghan McCain didn’t know that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner would attend her father’s funeral — and she wishes they hadn’t. “It made me uncomfortable,” McCain told Stephen Colbert when she was a guest on “The Late Show” Thursday night. “And I hope I made them uncomfortable, honestly.” McCain, a co-host of “The View,” also said that she is very much a conservative — but that if former Vice President Joe Biden runs for president and gets the Democratic nomination, “I’m going to have to quit television because I can’t say anything bad about him.”

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was Stephen Colbert's guest on Tuesday's Late Show, and at his request, they began the interview with tequila shots. "Where do you think the wheels came off during the shutdown?" Colbert asked. "The president blew it," Christie replied. "When?" Colbert asked, and Christie answered: "When he shut the government down with no plan on how to reopen it." Christie said he warned Trump beforehand that "if you're going to do this, you'd better have an exit plan." That obviously didn't happen, "and he got goose egg," Colbert said. "Yes, in politics, we call that...

    Freshman New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) in an interview late Monday said she gives "zero" f---s about criticism she’s received from members of her own party. “Now, congresswoman, for you and other freshmen members of Congress, you're getting a fair amount of pushback from even members of your own party saying ‘wait your turn, go slow, don't ask for so much so fast right now, you're new, wait your turn for everything and don't make waves,'" late-night host Stephen Colbert said to the rising progressive star on CBS's "The Late Show." “I want to ask this question in a...

    Well, this sounds interesting and probably sinister and open to manipulation: The federal government is spending nearly $1 million to create an online database that will track “misinformation” and hate speech on Twitter. The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online. The “Truthy” database, created by researchers at Indiana University, is designed to “detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution.” The university has received $919,917 so far for the project. “The project stands...

    Colbert, the host, said his staffers get excited when someone as knowledgeable as Clinton is in the building, so he gave them the OK to ask the former presidential hopeful a single question. The segment was edited and the workers were asked in various locations around the building. Clinton was inside a studio.

    Late Show host Stephen Colbert described President Donald Trump’s jokes about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as a “racist tirade” amid the ongoing drama over her supposed American Indian ancestry. On Tuesday, Warren released test results indicating that she had a maximum of 1.6 percent “Mesoamerican” heritage, which is far below the minimum requirement to claim membership of most Native American tribes. “After years of mocking Elizabeth Warren, clearly the President must have had a lot to say about these test results,” Colbert said, before playing a clip of Trump saying he did not care about the test results. “You care!...

Ariel Dumas on Saturday tweeted, "Whatever happens, I'm just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh's life." The post quickly went viral, as multiple conservative pundits retweeted it with critical commentary. Dumas the next day said the tweet was a "tone-deaf attempt at sarcasm." "The last couple of weeks have been hard for the country and for me personally," she wrote. "The complexity of frustration, anger and sadness can’t be accurately conveyed on twitter,...

    Former Secretary of State John Kerry responded Wednesday night to the explosive New York Times op-ed alleging a “quiet resistance” inside the Trump administration actively working to thwart the president’s agenda. “It scares the hell out of me,” Mr. Kerry told comedian Stephen Colbert on “The Late Show.” “First of all, there is a reassurance,” he added. “It means that for James Buchanan, he’s no longer the worst president.” A senior Trump administration official who was granted anonymity by The Times penned an op-ed Wednesday claiming to be part of a group of individuals “working diligently from within” to sabotage...

    [snip] A year and a half into the Trump presidency, entertainment companies are grappling with a fan base that is splintering into political factions as never before. Whether in regard to explicitly political entertainment or the rapidly multiplying number of entertainers who talk about politics, Americans appear to be increasingly figuring ideology into their Hollywood ­choices. Some fans, to be sure, have long been drawn to or repelled by the occasional outspoken celebrity — Jane Fonda for her antiwar views, for example. But fans are now judging a much wider range of entertainment and entertainers for the way those people...

    During an interview on “The Late Show,” Tuesday, Senator Bernie Sanders declared socialist ideas to be mainstream, after host Stephen Colbert suggested it’s hurting Democrats at the ballot box. Mr. Colbert pointed out that most of the candidates Mr. Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez campaigned for lost their primaries. “Why do you need to call yourself socialists? Because that’s freighted with so much negativity in the United States,” the late-night comedian asked. “Maybe there’s a little taint to socialism that turns people off?”

    The latest line of attack from liberals against Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, is knocking the judge for his “frat boy”-sounding first name. “We'll be DAMNED if we're going to let five MEN—including some frat boy named Brett—strip us of our hard-won bodily autonomy and reproductive rights,” the influential pro-choice organization NARAL tweeted Tuesday. Comedian Stephen Colbert of CBS’ “The Late Show” also mocked Kavanaugh’s name. “Now I don’t know much about Kavanaugh, but I’m skeptical because his name is Brett,” Colbert said during the monologue on his show Tuesday. “That sounds less like a Supreme...

    It’s the current year, and the unhinged left still cannot face the hard reality of a Donald Trump successful presidency. I didn’t mean it to rhyme, but that’s how it got out, sorry. Truth be told, the left seems to be crazier than ever nowadays, and Michael Moore is living fat proof of this. According to Jabba the Hutt reincarnated, the wimpy and weak Democrats (his words, not mine) would have to “rise up”, and, check this out: “put their bodies on the line” to mitigate the Trump disaster. If that doesn’t mean civil war, I don’t know what does....
