The “studio” that created that Trump-Kim trailer doesn’t exist

Yesterday, we were all given front-row seats to the diplomatic strategy of Donald J. Trump, which, of course, took the form of a poorly edited faux-movie trailer meant to flatter and impress a known dictator. As the trailer made the rounds online, people began to reach out to “Destiny Pictures,” the production company…

Jake Tapper tells Seth Meyers he's shocked Bill Clinton isn't better prepared, is less shocked about Trump 

Whenever comic news junkie Seth Meyers pulls in a real newsperson to appear on Late Night, the war is always between talking shop and just swapping bewildered Trump putdowns.

In his "Stupid Watergate" update, John Oliver warns of Trump going "full O.J."

John Oliver has famously dubbed the ongoing Trump-Russia investigation “Stupid Watergate,” since, as the Last Week Tonight host put it on Sunday’s show, everyone involved in this latest attempt by a sitting president to undermine American democracy is “dumb, and terrible, and bad at everything.” Oliver might have…

On Full Frontal, Samantha Bee apologizes for her bad words, waits for the outrage over Trump's cruel actions

After calling Ivanka Trump (presidential daughter and, Samantha Bee was careful to point out, advisor) a “feckless cunt” for doing precisely nothing to curb her father and boss’ family-sundering immigration policies, Bee became the 24-hour cable news cycle’s newest shiny thing, to her regret.

Stephen Colbert asks the "failing" New York Times executive editor about when Trump came calling

On Monday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert asked New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet if noted Times critic and foot-stamping baby-man Donald Trump has ever called him personally to complain about the paper’s coverage. “Yes,” responded Baquet succinctly, before admonishing the curious Colbert, “But I’m not going to…

Trump still makes a couple hundred bucks a year off his very cringe-y Fresh Prince episode

Spike Lee isn't mincing words with his message for "that motherfucker," Donald Trump

You’d be forgiven for losing track of every detail of the topography of America’s long, bumpy road from November 2016 to the present day, a shitty road trip where every whispered city name provokes an impromptu game of “School Shooting, White Supremacist Rally, or Poisoned Water Supply?” Still, “Charlottesville” is…

Stormy Daniels and a lot of other famous people tell Trump to resign on Saturday Night Live

With Donald Glover (and Donald Glover as Childish Gambino) tandem-hosting last night’s Saturday Night Live, there wasn’t much room for anyone else.
