Kimmel’s one of those entertainers who I wish I found more entertaining because I really like them as human beings.
The White House YouTube channel of Trump’s speech had about 83,000 viewers as of 7pm ET today (Jan. 9). While Trump, Pelosi, and Schumer were speaking, Stormy Daniels, the adult film producer who claims Trump’s lawyer paid her before the 2016 election to keep quiet about an affair, broadcast herself folding laundry from Instagram. She got about 100,000 viewers, she said.
“I build the best walls! No one can build walls like I can!”
One of these puppies could pry it open with ease.
A chain link fence and some trumpian zombies behind it, now, now that would be something.
It’s almost like they don’t think they need to care about keeping up appearances anymore.
I can’t imagine why.
Wow. Goddamnit, just wow.
Finally, proof of the danger to trans people in the bathroom!! Wait, is that not what you meant?
Kimmel has a few brilliant bits. Mostly I just watch this week in unnecessary censorship.
If someone asked me that question I could only assume they were trying to momentarily disorient me so they could steal my wallet. The alternative, that they genuinely think that’s a question to ask, isn’t even fathomable.
At least they are open about it this time. They do not feel that a Muslim can function as vice chair of an overtly racist party whose overarching goal is elimination of Muslims from the US. I guess they figure he might be opposed.
ETA: It is so bad, even some Republicans are outraged by the open racism involved. I guess they figure it is better hidden away.
I’d usually be pedantic and say that it’s technically bigotry because Islam is a religion, not a race; but I won’t bother this time around because I’m sure the color of the man’s skin is equally as “problematic” to such people.
Close enough for government work.
I think a lot of racists would never accept a Jewish or Muslim person as “white” no matter how light their skin was. But yeah, this guy is visibly non-white so it’s not a complicated issue here.
“The buck stops with everybody” absolutely takes the cake.
ETA: I guess he still has room to one-up himself by saying “the buck stops with everybody but me” in his next public appearance, but after that I don’t know where to even go.
True enough; mindless hatred over petty superficial differences is just so fucking stupid.
Why Cali can’t have FEMA money: apparently, the lack of Wall is a natural disaster.
We are living in a national disaster and nobody is doing anything about it.
270 Americans are fleeing the country every week? That seems a bit extreme!
