White House press secretary and spineless disgrace Sean Spicer has a new favorite word. And The Late Show with Stephen Colbert took a moment to pull some clips to remind us all what a fucking muppet this guy is.
It’s funny because this administration is a joke! A wretched, immoral joke that will destroy the environment, strip us of our rights and access to healthcare, and bows down to a golden calf of greed. COMEDY!
Speaking of comedy, this compelling VOX video argues comedians—and our anchorman crush Jake Tapper—are the only ones who can save us from Trump’s propaganda games.
And in all seriousness, the barbs from late night comedians could have a genuine impact. For one thing, Spicer will probably avoid using “phenomenal” from Mahna Mahnow on. For another, shows that are talking politics are gaining ground. Which suggests mainstream Americans are increasingly pulling their heads out of the sand traps of President* Trump’s Winter White House circus. So take some solace in that while this administration is a sick joke, at least they don’t get to laugh at it.
