    Trump Addresses the Nation on the Coronavirus Pandemic: A Closer Look

    -Hey, everybody. Welcome to “Late Night” Casual Thursday. [ Laughter ] So, we were planning on doing our show tonight and then, on Monday, we were gonna start doing shows without an audience, but, basically, things are moving very fast — I don’t need to tell you that — and our guests, with great reason, decided that they didn’t feel right, coming in and doing the show tonight, so we decided to cancel it and we don’t know when we are gonna start doing shows again. But, we had written “A Closer Look” last night and the “Closer Look” is about everything that’s happening right now and, really, the reason…

    Mikki Kendall – Lifting Up All Women with “Hood Feminism” | The Daily Show

    Welcome to The Daily Show. -Thank you for having me. -Uh, thank you for writing what is one of the most interesting books I’ve read on feminism in a very long time. Hood Feminism is a really interesting title, ’cause some p-people might be like, “Is there a different type of feminism in the hood that we-we don’t know about?” I think that there is. I would… I would argue that feminism in the hood is really about survival and less about becoming CEO and more about becoming, you know, a person who can afford to keep your house, stay home for two weeks during coronavirus -and generally feed your…

    Judith Heumann – Defying Obstacles in “Being Heumann” and “Crip Camp” | The Daily Show

    Can I just say, reading-reading this book, I-I expected to be impressed by it, but I wasn’t quite expected -for how much of a badass you would be. -(chuckles) Um, no, because you-you don’t just advocate for human rights and-and rights for people with disabilities, but-but you fight for them and you fight for them with a passion. Welcome to the show. Before I get into my first question, I-I guess what really blew my mind about your story is that I, specifically, have taken for granted so many things in life that I feel like were always there– ramps, you know, for getting into stores, uh, you know, ramps…

    Trump Broke The Law To Protect The Saudi Royal Family

    According to recent reports, the Trump administration has been breaking the law repeatedly for well over the past month over the death of reporter Jamal Khashoggi. Here’s what happened, on February 20th a month after they were supposed to deliver it to Congress, the Trump administration finally handed over classified information regarding Khashoggi’s murder and the involvement of Saudi crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. They were a month late on this. The Democrats had issued requests. They had sent subpoenas for information, and the Trump administration repeatedly ignored it. They were given deadlines, legal deadlines that they had to meet, that they failed to meet continuously breaking the law as…

According to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Every FBI field office was working on trade secrets theft cases involving China with potential victims spanning almost every sector and industry. With the DOJ and the FBI under relentless partisan fire over politically charged domestic investigations dating back to the 2016…

    The case for Elizabeth Warren

    In July 2019, Elizabeth Warren was part of a debate with former Congressman John Delaney. Delaney was also running for president, and he criticized Warren for being unrealistic. I think Democrats win when we run on real solutions, not impossible promises, when we run on things that are workable, not fairy tale economics. If you want to understand Elizabeth Warren, her response to that is a great place to start. I don’t understand why anybody goes to all the trouble of running for president of the United States just to talk about what we really can’t do and shouldn’t fight for. I don’t get it. Elizabeth Warren wants to make…

    Trump Has Suspended The Law To Get His Border Wall Built Faster

    To say that Donald Trump has no respect for the rule of law, I think would probably be a gross understatement, right? We all know that Donald Trump has no respect for the rule of law, but each day we’re kind of finding out a little more and more about how little regard he has for it. Take for example, this story that came out earlier this week. Apparently Donald Trump has decided that in order to appease his rabid base, he’s got to get his border wall built as quickly as possible so that he can have the 450 miles that he’s promised constructed before the 2020 election. But…

He said that yes, Jim Jordan was part of the cover-up and on the 4th of July, this, two years ago actually, Jordan called him crying and begging him to retract his brother’s statement saying that Jordan was involved…
